Real-time monitoring solution connects to the cloud

May 03, 2017 //By Julien Happich
Together with Austrian based company LineMetrics GmbH, Conrad Business Supplies has designed a complete and easy-to-use solution for monitoring various key parameters in companies' manufacturing facilities.

The C-Control Industrial IoT-Box 100 solution enables the use of sensor data for ongoing process optimization, efficiency improvements or potential problem prevention on site.

The box monitors in real-time the operation of equipment, energy consumption in buildings, oil tank levels, room temperature in offices or any combination of several different sensor values, wherever placed, in small or large businesses. With 8 universal inputs (0-10V) and Modbus RTU 485 support, sensor data is recorded in high speed and transferred to the C-Control Industrial IoT Cloud via the mobile network. The pre-activated SIM card and global GSM coverage ease the connectivity without any headaches so customers can concentrate on optimizing and evaluating the data. With a choice of several hundred compatible sensors, Conrad offers the right sensor for every application and, if necessary, for expanding the sensor network.

In the C-Control Industrial IoT Cloud, powered by LineMetrics, real objects are displayed digitally and additional information can be easily added. In this way, the petrol level of a tank, its location, volume, serial number, filling material, documents and other instructions, can be stored together. All the acquired data is available 24/7. Alarms, based on freely definable threshold values, help to recognize and avoid problems at an early stage. The acquired data can be further processed via open interfaces in existing IT systems.
