Powelectrics Technology Gives Sensor Suppliers An Additional, Ongoing Revenue Stream By Offering Their Customers Connected Sensor Data. Introducing ... ‘Platform As A Service’

Posted on 22 Nov 2018

Powelectrics are offering sensor providers the opportunity to gain additional and ongoing revenue, by selling connectivity along with their sensors.

Simply use our reliable, robust and affordable hardware and software. You can even badge it to appear as your own! We can give you immediate market entry, fulfilling an existing market need with technology that is already proven in multiple applications all over the world. Additional revenue with no risk!

Our world is increasingly connected. Terms like ‘Internet of Things’, Industry 4.0 and ‘Machine to Machine’ are commonplace. Most people who buy sensors need to see the data from those sensors and receive alarms, without being stood right next to the process. They need access to data on critical processes … immediately … wherever they are.

Powelectrics realise that most people are going to connect their sensors to some kind of monitoring and control technology. We also realise that many sensor suppliers compete on price. They rarely have the luxury of increasing sensor prices. Our technology offers sensor suppliers a new and ongoing revenue stream starting from your existing customer base.

  • Capitalize on evolving market needs
  • Open up new applications
  • Sell more sensors to new and existing customers
  • Retrofit connectivity to existing sensors
  • Develop longer-term, ongoing customer partnerships

We give you the ability to offer your customers completely secure and reliable sensor data to any web-enabled device. Our platform, MetronView can accept multiple users and levels of authorisation, so individual users can see just their own data, or a whole site, or every site from which sensors are reporting.

MetronView is a standalone cloud. As well as badging it with your logo, we can configure it to offer customised dashboards, reports and alarms to your customers. There is also an API on the platform, which allows data to be collected by other platforms … or we can create an application-specific portal for you. Examples of portals we have already created include tank management, energy metering, vending machines, train condition monitoring and waste compactors. MetronView processes millions of readings/day and is currently using only a fraction of its processing power. We are offering a highly robust and scalable solution.

Connecting sensors helps customers really benefit from their sensor data to:

  • Lower operational costs by improving efficiency
  • Identify maintenance needs and avoid breakdown
  • Minimise disruption to core processes
  • Protect people, places, property and processes

Just take a look at our other news articles to see many examples of ‘connected sensors’ benefitting customers in a broad range of industries and applications.

Our Metron2 telemetry devices can be supplied for use with external power, integral battery and solar power. All Metron2 devices can be remotely configured via MetronView or set-up by us, prior to dispatch or simply configured on site, using the integral display. No programming skills are needed. Metron2 offers 4 analogue inputs, optional 5 pulse inputs and 2 optional relay outputs and they are supplied in a robust, weatherproof IP67 enclosure.
