New Sensata industrial wireless technology simplifies IoT equipment connectivity
The addition of Sensata’s wireless systems to its range of industrial-grade products offers customers an easier way to add IoT connectivity to their equipment for increased productivity.
Sensata Technologies, a leading provider of sensor-rich and control solutions, today announced the availability of its new Industrial Wireless Systems. Sensata’s broad offering makes it easier for digital transformation leaders, automation engineers and plant managers to implement scalable, cost-effective connectivity to their equipment.
Wireless networks eliminate the installation and maintenance costs associated with wired systems for continuous asset monitoring. The breadth and configurability of system devices, which include wireless pressure and temperature sensors, gateways, receivers and transmitters, gives it scalability and adaptability to work in a range of industrial applications.
To simplify setup, Sensata’s wireless systems feature out-of-the-box configurations while still allowing for the flexibility to program to specific requirements. In addition, Sensata’s system uses a proprietary wireless protocol to reliably deliver sensor data up to 500m in environments with obstructions and supports a range of connectivity options to communicate with other systems.
“We’ve designed these systems to meet our customers’ changing needs and to simplify the process of connecting machines to smart factory solutions, helping them increase the productivity, reliability and performance of their assets,” said Paul Heine, Product Manager, Industrial Sensing & IIoT at Sensata Technologies
Sensata’s robust portfolio of wireless systems simplify and lower the cost of connecting data from assets in hard to maintain locations for smart factory solutions.
