IOT for industrial monitoring & cost savings
Legacy plant and machinery in many factories lack the technology to bring machine intelligence on operational factors that govern their performance, utilisation and accounting practices to help achieve industrial cost savings. With the advent of wireless sensors, mesh technology and open source data visualisation tools, deploying such solutions have become easy and affordable. Let us discuss a few of the factors
Measuring power consumption of critical equipment
Implementing an activity based costing methodology in a manufacturing or services environment would need to know the cost incurred on each equipment. For this purpose, our modules provide the power consumed by your legacy machines.
Monitor utilisation of high value equipment to ensure productivity
The hours used by each of the legacy equipment will be helpful for the plant manager schedule proactive maintenance and stock consumables and spares accordingly.
Wear and tear of machines to provide proactive maintenance
Using vibration and other models, data visualisation tools can help the shop floor managers detect anomalies in the critical components of plant and machinery.
Environment monitoring in factories
People health, safety play an important role in the productivity of any organisation. It is more so in the manufacturing sector, where the air quality – dust, noxious vapours, humidity etc play a big role.
Inventory management and cost savings
Timely availability of resources, at the right place can help shave a few cents from the factory operations. Industrial tracking solutions for assets and people will help in improving production workflow and supervision.
Industrial cost savings using IIOT solutions
Wireless mesh networks can be deployed inside factories and warehouses to save on the deployment and maintenance costs. Besides, retrofit solutions ensure quick deployment (in under 30 minutes in most cases). Long battery life of solar powered solutions further reduces the cost of ownership.
