Sensors as a Service - Powelectrics Offer to Platform Providers

Powelectrics connect the world of sensors and the Internet of Things. Our MetronView web cloud offers platform providers a reliable way to draw data from thousands of sensor types securely into their cloud.

Platform providers can simply use our reliable, robust and affordable hardware and our secure, scalable software, with its common API, as middleware, to integrate this sensor data into other application-specific platforms

Many businesses monitor their physical processes by connecting sensors to monitoring and control technology. We help you channel those ‘data streams’ into your ‘data lake’.

You can augment your offer and service levels by using our versatile, internationally proven technology to gain immediate, risk-free market entry.

Our world is increasingly connected. Terms like ‘Internet of Things’, Industry 4.0 and ‘Machine to Machine’ are commonplace. Your customers have already recognised the benefits of digitising data and processing it via one platform with the intelligence to deliver meaningful insights, inform strategic decision-making and deliver success.

Powelectrics offer 30 years’ experience in the world of sensors as well as supplying own telemetry devices and middleware platform and having a wealth of experience integrating third party devices. We have connected many thousands of sensors to the cloud, helping end-users transform their businesses by improving process efficiency and creating new income streams.

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

Powelectrics offer expertise in a range of communication technologies and power options. You could be measuring level, flow, pressure, temperature…almost anything… on another continent, where there is no external power.

Our proprietary Metron4 range of m2m telemetry hardware is robust, afforable, easily installed, straight out of the box. Not only do these IIoT units support 2G, but also 4G (CatM1 & NB1). This means it can be deployed globally, even in geographical areas where the 2G network has been switched off, such as the US and Australia.

Metron4 offers enormous flexibility to add functionality for specific, customer-driven applications. In addition to 4 analogue inputs, there are expansion cards for pulse counting (5 channels) and RS232 and options to develop RS485 and CANBUS interfaces.  Data and alerts are sent wirelessly at user-defined intervals to unlimited authorised users, wherever they have web access... to smart devices, laptops, desktops.

With solar, battery and external power options, compact IP67 enclosure and operational temperatures - 25 to +65°C, Metron4 is extremely versatile. For more information on our robust and reliable Metron4 range of telemetry devices click here.

MetronView is our standalone cloud, with customisable dashboards, reporting & alarms.It is a highly secure and scalable IoT solution, currently processing millions of readings every day, whilst only using a fraction of its processing capabilities. MetronView supports over 140 protocols including MODBUS, MQTT, HTTP, TCP, UDP, SERIAL, SIGFOX, SNMP.

Data can be collected by other platforms via API. The API allows integration to software like Navision, SAP, SCADA and platforms like IBM Watson, Microsoft Azure, AWS and Miimetiq. It also allows Powelectrics and their customers to develop application specific portals.More here.
