I is the internet, T is the things or devices. You guessed it, O is for Awesome.IoT is about connecting the physical world to the internet. Essentially IoT is a large ecosystem of devices that: Gather data (using sensors) Interact (using actuators) Process (using controllers) and Connect (using Gateways to the internet)
Options & Benefits
In-line pipe pressure sensors can be installed for water or gas distribution to help ensure correct functioning of pumps, valves and pipes/joins.
Sensors a variety of pollutants including dust, fine particulate matter, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen oxide, and many others.
Used to measure the internal temperature of structures like bridges, dams, buildings, power plants, etc.
Detects and measures water vapour or dew - important for incubators, respiratory equipment, sterilizers, and biological products.
Can be used in applications such as light sensing in mobile devices, automatic outdoor lighting, proximity sensors, and renewable energy.
Automatically senses the presence of smoke, as a key indicator of fire, and sounds a warning to building occupants.
Used for determining the distance of an object from another object or obstacle without any physical contact.
Used to detect motion by receiving infrared radiation. Automatic lighting when someone enters a room or cause a video camera to begin operating.
Designed to monitor, maintain, and measure liquid (and sometimes solid) levels. Sends information back to the control panel to trigger an alarm or indicator.
A barometric pressure sensor is a sensor that detects atmospheric or air pressure. The pattern of pressure will predict short-term changes in the weather.
Monitoring and control can increase soil quality, guide crop production, suppress pests and weeds, sequester carbon from the atmosphere, and clean the water that flows through it into rivers and lakes.
The sole function of an actuator that’s used in a hydraulic control system is to convert the hydraulic energy supplied by the pump and processed by the control elements into useful work.
A relay is an electrically operated switch. It takes a relatively small amount of power to operate a relay coil. That being so, it can still be used to control motors, heaters, lamps, or AC circuits.
An electric actuator converts electricity into kinetic energy in either a single, linear, or rotary motion. They’re typically used in industrial applications associated with manufacturing valves, pumps, and motors.
A thermal actuator is equipped with thermal-sensitive material that when paired with a temperature sensor, can be used to perform tasks such as release latches, operate switches, and open or close valves.
A pneumatic actuator is a device that converts energy – typically in the form of compressed air – into mechanical motion. Pneumatic actuators are notable in their use for applications where the opening and closing of valves takes place. For this reason, they hold value within applications where there’s a fire or ignition risk.
Magnetic actuators operate in either a rotary or linear direction and can have continuous or limited motion. Magnetic actuators are used within the aerospace, automotive industry, healthcare, computers, and many other industries.
