Endress+Hauser selects cellular gateway for its field instrumentation sensors
The Connect Sensor cellular gateway from Dig- International, a provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) and IoT connectivity products and services, has been selected for use as part of Endress+Hauser's Inventory Management Solutions.
The combination of Digi's Connect Sensor with Endress+Hauser's field instrumentation sensors and the Endress+Hauser SupplyCare cloud platform is believed to offer a complete solution for connectivity of industrial sensors in remote locations.
The Digi Connect Sensor is a battery-powered, enterprise-ready cellular gateway solution for wireless connectivity at locations with either no power or low power. It offers the ability to accommodate a variety of sensors The plug-and-play solution allows for remote sensor monitoring to be deployed in environments previously considered too harsh, remote or not economically viable.
Powered by an internal battery with optional connections to external electrical or solar power sources, the combination of the Digi Connect Sensor cellular gateway, Endress+Hauser sensors and cloud platform is said to provide improved visibility into systems and operations, leading to lower labour costs, decreased safety risk and more efficient operations.
