Get the data you need to manage, improve and optimize operations Regardless of your industry, there is constant pressure to increase efficiency, reduce waste, reduce energy consumption and maximize up-time of equipment. But making those improvements often requires data that you don’t have. Too often the effort required to get the data is complex, expensive and disruptive to critical equipment or processes, so those valuable projects are set aside. Wzzard Wireless Sensing Solutions solves this problem, making it easy and non-intrusive to capture sensor data from existing equipment and operations to enable ongoing improvements that lower costs, increase productivity and reduce waste. The Wzzard intelligent wireless sensor platform creates a complete, quick and easy connectivity stack between sensors and applications. The platform uses Wzzard mesh sensor edge nodes and a self-forming, self-healing wireless mesh network to transmit sensor data to a wireless gateway. Both Ethernet and carrier-certified cellular options are available. Users are also able to utilize the Node-RED application platform on the Wzzard gateway, enabling local decision making, alerts and data conversion at the edge of the network.
