There’s a major shift happening in the Industrial Internet of Things. Are you ready?
In years past, data collection in manufacturing facilities and remote locations was extremely limited. Specific information was gathered from a particular piece of equipment (or process) to monitor (or improve) a single operation. Think of it as thousands of employees continuously running around collecting data on clipboards from legacy equipment and manually feeding information into an analysis tool.
The cloud-based IIoT platforms of today have changed everything.
There is no longer a barrier between discrete data points or individual application intelligence. Instead, good count data can be used to improve Overall Equipment Effectiveness while also reducing loss and waste. That same data set can improve production efficiency and compare difference between production shifts.
But all of this possibility doesn’t mean your organization wants—or needs—to invest in all new sensors, networking solutions or data-gathering devices. Instead, you want to leverage what you already have while leveling it up with the latest IIoT protocols to build a feedback loop for all actionable data.
That’s where Red Lion Controls comes in.
IIoT-ready solutions from Red Lion help you meet the immediate promise of the industrial internet of things with an eye toward complete industrial IoT security and reliable process automation. The best part? Red Lion can accomplish these ambitious goals by gathering data from both new and legacy devices throughout your facility.
Let the IIoT experts at Red Lion help you choose IIoT solutions for maximum ROI as well as flexibility for the future.
Today’s floor communication protocols should be able to transmit data in a cloud environment, even when network connections are constantly dropped. They should also offer consistent, robust security and easy scalability. The cellular network medium is proving to be highly reliable and secure, offering traditional data encapsulation like VPN tunnels, as well as more advanced methods to secure data like private access point names (APNs) or Software Defined Networking (SDN).
THE RED LION IIOT ADVANTAGE
Red Lion IIoT products and industrial devices are rugged and reliable, built to withstand harsh environments for remote asset monitoring.
