At the tank level, IIoT technology has several benefits. Wireless connection from a sensor to a display via Bluetooth or a similar technology reduces material costs and installation effort when compared to traditional, wired instruments. This remote access allows users to make routine adjustments without climbing narrow ladders and walking scaffolds. In this way, IIoT is making plants safer for their people. As someone who spent years servicing products in the field and has found myself in some dicey situations, I am happy for the current generation of guys in the field. IIoT and remote sensor access means they won’t have to go through what I went through.
In other areas of the plant, IIoT allows for data collection from a network of level, pressure, and other interconnected sensors to a communication network via the cloud. This collected data gives users a look inside every process in the plant all at once without leaving their desks. Thanks to IIoT innovations, users can monitor and analyze processes, collect and share data, deliver valuable insights and make sound business decisions faster than ever before.
The advantages of IIoT in measurement sensors extend beyond inventory and production. The wealth of information and the ability for multiple parties to access it remotely is downright revolutionary as it concerns supply chain management. It sounds simple, but it’s true: You can’t manage what you can’t see. IIoT gives all stakeholders the power to see more than ever and that power is reaping enormous benefits. Reliable Trucking, a materials hauling outfit in California, is a prime example of how IIoT and remote access to real-time information can improve business practices.
