Detect problems from a distance: Remote Monitoring and Control
Large or complex machine manufacturing operations require constant and close supervision. Remote monitoring and control (M&C) systems help production managers and maintenance workers supervise equipment and assess maintenance requirements from anywhere. They alert workers when readings, temperatures, and fluid levels, for example, are about to cross dangerous thresholds. IDEC provides cameras for visual monitoring, sensors that detect fast-moving objects and tiny objects through narrow or limited space and at long distances, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-enabled controllers that manage data exchange and inputs to maintenance systems. With systems like this in place, manufacturers can address equipment problems before they materialize and keep production lines moving.
