How an IoT controller reduces operating costs

Nowadays, data has become one of the most precious assets. No wonder that, to guarantee suggestions that are more compatible with each user’s profile, Internet advertising and sales systems are based entirely on them.

In industry, there are numerous benefits to using data. Through a compact and robust controller, it is possible to simplify the registration process and guarantee a real-time monitoring, advantages of which NOVUS is a pioneer. N20K48, the only modular controller on the market, now features a Wi-Fi micromodule technology. It allows you to integrate legacy systems and make data available, which can be monitored at any time and from anywhere.

You have to adapt (and there is an easy way to do this)

In the past, it could take days or weeks before the information flow within an operation reached supervisors and directors. Today, the accelerated competitiveness, pressured by the constant evolution of technologies, does not allow data to travel slowly to the decision makers.

Information about equipment productivity and performance, another change that has been taking place in the last decade, is not limited to the interest and review of IT team and direct operations. The data, which are accessible horizontally, bring the necessary information to get a more realistic picture of the processes (especially those involving Quality management) as they are being designed.

By obtaining and monitoring data, companies get several benefits and increase their operational efficiency. An example is the response time to a failure: In a connected operation, unforeseen events are detected more quickly and repair can be arranged in a shorter time, reducing the time required for maintenance downtime.

Using the cloud and Artificial Intelligence, it is possible to predict when a failure will occur. This eliminates the need for unexpected maintenance and brings even more efficiency to the operation. By monitoring the data extracted from a process, it is possible to identify and correct points of inefficiency. Thus, the user gets a more precise operation and improves the decision-making process.

Regardless of the size of the factory plant, information is extremely valuable and its value only tends to increase with time. Mastering the data means acting more intelligently and efficiently, reducing costs and increasing productivity. 

IoT controller: Affordable connectivity for machines and processes

NOVUS’ first IoT controller can be integrated with several systems and processes, making it a versatile and efficient solution and ensuring wireless communication with IoT panels and devices.

The N20K48 modular controller with Wi-Fi micromodule, a device with features not found in similar models, is compatible with many applications.

Its performance include connecting to panels and manufacturing IoT furnaces, which allow you to track the burning status (ramps and soaks) remotely, set alarms to indicate the end of the process, or create error alerts via cloud. In more complex processes, with a controller in each production line, it is possible to centralize the data in a single network and monitor everything via supervisory systems. This allows you to have a real-time view of production and quickly identify any problems.

Very soon, the Modbus Master function will make it possible to centralize data from all devices connected via Modbus and realize full host integration with IoT.

Thus, taking up little space, a single device is able to add the technology you need to stay competitive in the market. Since the software is very intuitive and easy to navigate, it is easy to configure the device via QuickTune Mobile or desktop. This is another advantage of the modular controller.
