This solution gives you the ability to remotely monitor product quantities at the customer site, which is critical to the on-time delivery of consumable materials. From simply counting dispensing cycles to measuring liquid product volumes and flows, EP Connect sensors can give suppliers real-time data on product quantities at the customer’s point of delivery. This helps businesses coordinate truck runs and product delivery to customers that cannot afford to “run out”. All this can be done outside of existing corporate data information systems over secure cellular data communications.
Embedded Planet epSensors: Sensors include temperature, proximity, position, moisture, flow, fluid leaks, and vibration.
Embedded Planet epGateway™: Sensors connect directly to the Embedded Planet epGateway. The epGateway serves as a sensor hub for both wired and wireless sensors including epSensors. The epGateway can send data to Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud and Amazon AWS. It also provides remote device management in a secure multi-tenant environment.
epCloud: Sensor data is sent to Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud and Amazon AWS. Device management is performed via epCloud and can securely update device firmware and manage the system remotely. Data rendered into visualization dashboards which use rules to notify maintenance personnel via texts or push the data to tools for automatic work order creation. Data is stored in a cloud-based database for longer term historical analysis which is required for predictive analytics.
