Sensing and Telemetry News
Back in March, when Powelectrics introduced Dave Oakes as our new MD, we also mentioned that he was training hard for the Tour de Manc® sportive. Fantastically well done to Dave for not only surviving, but doing it on one of the hottest days of the year so far…certainly not the Arctic conditions he has been training in!
Powelectrics Have Developed a Rail Safety Solution in Partnership with the Energy Development Co-Operative
Powelectrics have developed a rail industry solution for the Energy Development Co-Operative who specialise in renewable energy technologies for off-grid energy applications. This remote condition monitoring application connects sensors to the cloud, ensuring that battery charge issues are reported and dealt with quickly.
Powelectrics have been working with ChrisGage, Digital Lead, for IBM Industrial Products to develop ‘connected sensor solutions’ for a number of condition monitoring applications. IBM are using Powelectrics award-winning Metron telemetry devices to connect sensors to their IBM Cloud, a sophisticated web-based ‘platform as a service’ (PaaS)
National Trust uses solar-powered Metron2 telemetry to connect level sensors on waste tanks to the cloud, reducing tanker collections and helping ensure that facilities are always available to visitors.
Powelectrics have collaborated with global industrial adhesive business to remotely monitor packaging machines, maximising employee productivity, minimising energy/product consumption and extending machine life/line uptime through predictive maintenance. It’s a perfect example of the ‘smart factory’ and Industry 4.0 in practice. The transformation to service supplier as well as product supplier offers a massive competitive advantage.
The smooth running of Powelectrics busy HQ is largely down to the hard work of Nicole Lowe, our Office Team Leader. Nicole has been brightening our days for 7 years … and impressing us with a dazzling array of fluffy cardigans and coats!!
