Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with their internal states or the external environment. Since all the data from the various connected devices can be gathered, it also adds significant value to analytics. Our IoT platform 'Sense+Connect' delivers an integrated, secure, and comprehensive architecture that can be used across industries. Sense+Connect provides everything needed to generate data-driven intelligence from connected things, people, and devices. This enables businesses to connect with the new generation of Internet-enabled devices in the cloud, and transform existing business processes and enhance customer experience.
 
Sense+Connect framework has the following capabilities:
  • Sense: Sense+Connect can sense and respond with millions of device endpoints in real-time. It can integrate a large number of sensors, actuators, and transducers for specific and custom made measurements and analysis.
  • Connect: Input and output interfaces of Sense+Connect include built-in analog I/O and digital I/O for controlling and managing smart devices. It supports most of the communication interfaces such as USB, RS232, RS485, and Ethernet. 
  • Acquire: Sense+Connect is designed for sophisticated real-time embedded control and data acquisition applications that require high performance and reliability.
  • Integrate: Sense+Connect framework can seamlessly integrate with any IT system
  • Analyze and Manage: The solution offers intelligent analytics and reporting capabilities with different levels of data management.
Sense+Connect is a comprehensive, yet modular solution. It has an open embedded architecture with small size, extreme ruggedness, hot-swappable industrial I/O modules, and is powered by reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture. Sense+Connect supports a large number of sensors and communication protocols. Other advantages include:
  • Faster time-to-market 
  • Design and development expertise for custom solutions
  • Seamless integration with third party software or apps
  • Scalability and future expansion options
  • Reconfigurable Hardware components and Pluggable I/O Modules
  • Secure and hosted solution
  • Long lifecycle support

 

Sense+Connect EMS is a hosted solution to manage organizations’ energy consumption and energy cost. EMS will provide the information, the insight and the intelligence to control the energy consumption across the entire organization.
 
Sense+Connect Energy management system will help organizations to:
  • Continuous tracking of organizations energy consumption and energy cost
  • Monitor Area/department/equipment wise breakup of energy consumption data
  • Continuous monitoring of real time electrical parameters
  • Checks the actual against the benchmark limits and notifies the relevant stakeholders when critical incident happens
  • Helps organization to control their devices accordingly
  • Remote energy management consultancy with the support of energy monitoring system.
Use of Sense+Connect EMS will improve the equipment productivity and life, reduces the power use and its costs, and finally increase the company's profits.

Bringing together the physical and digital worlds in ways that could barely be imagined a few years ago is what the IoT is doing. Consumer applications of the IoT have the most buzz. But B2B IoT is where organizations see the maximum value. Sensors and actuators are getting connected by networks to computers where data is getting processed—lots of data!

 

Sense+Connect can connect different things to monitor multiple parameters. Storage of medical assets is a typical use case. Storage of medical assets such as blood, vaccine, and lab specimen require high accuracy in temperature monitoring. They are shipped over long distances and some assets such as plasma and blood are stored for longer periods. So, it is highly essential to maintain the right temperature to ensure safety and reduce wastage. FDA, WHO, and other regulatory bodies have made it mandatory to log the temperature of medical assets when they are shipped or stored.
 
Sense+Connect uses temperature sensors inside storage units such as refrigerators and freezers to monitor the temperature of medical assets. It monitors and logs the temperature of medical assets such as blood, vaccines, etc., in real-time at regular intervals and sends alerts when the temperature goes beyond the threshold. User can set temperature threshold based on the properties of the assets. Sense+Connect also logs the history of the asset’s temperature reading in the cloud, which can be downloaded as a compliance report.
