A sophisticated data-collection device, the sensor is a crucial-and fascinating-component of the Internet of Things (IoT). This article explores the evolution of sensor technology, the main challenges facing the industry today, and how IoT sensor data analytics can transform the way your building works.
The wireless sensor doesn't need any cabling. This retrofit angle sensor can be attached to several types of manual rotary valves, including ball and butterfly valves.
Too often, businesses start with an "intent to connect" instead of focusing on a business model. Companies that are just looking to create a connected version of a product fail to solve actual problems that are affecting the business.
Essentially, we've reigned in the power requirements of our devices by up to three orders of magnitude, which lets us do everything we need to do off that small form-factor harvesting budget.
When you take billions of devices and connect them through the Internet, collecting and sharing data, that is the IoT. These devices communicate and interact with other devices over the Internet, while being remotely monitored and managed.
While the connected factory demands new and emerging technologies to be overlaid and interwoven into the manufacturing environment, existing systems such as MES, ERP and ECM are also at the forefront of IoT enablement.
The need for precise motion control is driven by many demands now placed on the line, from moving products around on the manufacturing floor to a variety of work stations to the logistics of moving the finished product through a facility.
IoT and connected devices are making the development process more transparent. The technology also allows plant managers and overseers to accurately review operations, which leads to a more positive direction for everyone.
Every company is concerned about quality, but leading companies are leveraging automated systems and IoT data to test their products and improve quality at a new level. Leaders in this industry include Tesla, Raymond, and Daimler Trucks.
Your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system needs to move at the speed of your business.
IoT solutions are built for many vertical applications such as environmental monitoring and control, health monitoring, vehicle fleet monitoring, industrial monitoring and control, and home automation.
The Four Benefits of Using a Gateway in Your IoT Design
One of the most important decisions you may be facing is which communication protocols to choose. This decision impacts the hardware and what devices and functionality are available.
The future of IoT in the very competitive food service space relies on the innovations of applications which provide clear ROI or have a strong business case. It is a pennies business and each application will need to stand on its own.
Intels Antony Neal-Graves has shared his initial thoughts on how the industrial landscape will evolve in 2017.

EXAIR's Super Air Knife is the latest generation of our engineered air knife that dramatically reduces compressed air usage and noise when compared to other blowoffs. The Super Air Knife offers a more efficient way to clean, dry or cool parts, webs or conveyors. It delivers a uniform sheet of laminar airflow across the entire length with hard-hitting force. Air amplification ratios (entrained air to compressed air) of 40:1 are produced. Meets OSHA maximum dead-end pressure and noise requirements. The Super Air Knife is ideal for blowing off chips, dirt or water from parts, webs or conveyors. It delivers a uniform sheet of air that has the same force across the entire length. There are no interruptions or "dead spots", which means all surfaces are dried or cleaned. The Super Air Knife is available in aluminum, stainless steel, or PVDF for corrosive and high temperature applications. High noise levels are a common problem for many plants. Compressed air noise often exceeds OSHA (Occupa
