Connected Sensor Solutions (Industry 4.0)

We can make your factory SMARTER, bringing you the Industrial Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 production. By monitoring the state of machines and moving parts, as well automating processes, then factories are able to become more efficient with less down time. Manufacturer Industry 4.0 enables you to keep ahead of your competitors and we have proven technology meaning you can start beneftting immediately.

There are many terms for the process of connecting sensor data to the people and processes who need it via the internet. These include Remote Monitoring, the Internet of Things, M2M, Machine2Machine, Machine2Man and even Man2Machine. Powelectrics telemetry solutions can connect thousands of different types of sensors to the internet, giving you secure web based data access through a simple web browser, visible on a computer, tablet or smartphone. They can be used to alert you, when a defined threshold has been crossed or a state has changed. Businesses are increasingly using remote monitoring to achieve efficiencies, drive down costs, improve the safety of people and property, enhance customer service and protect the environment. Powelectrics have been part of this data revolution from the early days of wireless telemetry and we have used our industry knowledge to continuously develop a range of robust, flexible and affordable, off the shelf radio and GSM solutions. We strive to remain at the forefront of this evolving sector and we offer the expertise to develop solutions for an increasing range of applications.

Powelectrics can provide all or part of a fully integrated, end to end telemetry solution including hardware, software, hosted services and sim cards. Powelectrics connected sensor solutions are easy to install & maintain. Devices can use external power, integral battery or solar cell, which means they can be completely self-contained for temporary applications or where there is no power available. They offer integral, low-cost GSM/GPRS communications ATEX options and a high frequency of transmission. Units have an integral display, which helps with setup and test and can be remotely configured via our software. Devices have multiple inputs, so you can use one device/SIM card to monitor several sensors, including flow sensors, level sensors, temperature sensors, pressure sensors and environmental sensors and many more. Powelectrics are also a well-established and reputable sensor distributor, offering sensors from over 100 respected international suppliers.

Powelectrics data collection and viewing platform, Metron View, is a web-based data logger, showing tables and graphs. It can send out alarms by email/text if a defined threshold is crossed or if a device has not reported in. Metron View is easily badged and customised, delivering bespoke reports and data exports and interfacing via an API with existing management & control systems, like SAP. We can work with you to develop a bespoke site for any application. Powelectrics connected sensor solutions can also incorporate low power radio telemetry and PLCs (programmable logic controllers).
