27 May 2019


The arrival of Internet of Things has led to big changes at the industry in relation with new opportunities to reduce costs and increment the competitivity of the companies.

To reach machine learning, IoT technologies have been directly applied to production processes to find the excellence in machines and installations performance. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is based on monitor, centralize, control and analyze.

Find out 4 of the applications that are taking more benefits of Industrial Internet of Things:


1. Smart grid y energy saving

The installation of meters for energy monitoring at strategic points of our buildings, factories or warehouses has become necessary to tracking and control the consumptions and the quality of our electricity grid. The fault detection and the energy efficiency are the basis of this process.


2. Industrial automation

The performance of production processes can be enhanced thanks to industrial automation. Automation tools as PLC (Programmable Logic Control) connected to devices with connection to cloud platforms allow to collect data, analyze it and take actions to improve its behavior. Increase the efficiency of processes, reduce errors, prevent actions of maintenance and remote control are the main objectives of any industrial automation project.


3. Predictive maintenance

Modern industrial machines require being equipped with sensors to continuously monitor the status of any critical components and detect any critical problem before the system is completely down. These sensors will trigger maintenance warnings of a cloud platform and the alert messages will be delivered to the person in charge of maintenance tasks.

Using that massive amount of data, it’s possible to create effective calendars of remote maintenance in order to avoid routine tasks that may produce unnecessary downtimes in the production line.


4. Agriculture

The well-known Smart Farming. Far away from industrial plants of production, Industrial Internet of Things has facilitated agriculture to make a leap forward in the quality of installations adding sensors at fields and farms to massively collect data.

At agriculture, manual routine processes have always been the most unproductive part of the business. New sensors and wireless technologies have allowed to reduce the cost and increase the viability of automate the humidity and soil potential monitoring. In addition, combined with the possibility of receiving real-time weather data, allows the system to remotely optimize the irrigation management of different fields at the same moment.

Node-RED, the visual programming tool for Internet of Things

11 May 2020

From the beginning of programming, one of the industry’s main challenges has been to facilitate the applications development to simplify the integration between the hardware devices, the software and us, the humans. Thanks to Node-RED we are much closer of this goal. Programming, without programming.

eMOD, a new concept of customized industrial device without R&D costs

16 Apr 2020

We are manufacturers, and we know the effort, time and costs involved in creating a customized and certified industrial hardware from ground zero. eMOD is a new hardware system that brings a solution to all these needs. We have evolved the modularity concept to enable the creation of fully customized industrial devices without R&D costs.

Advanced comparative analysis to optimize the management of multiple facilities

25 Mar 2020

It is well know that the more facilities you have to handle, the less time you have to manage each one. In addition, when you exceed a number of establishments, hotels or restaurants, you are no longer able to separately analyze each facility. Nowadays it is as much important to capture your installations’ data as knowing how to manage it in an efficient way. This process is based on filtering this data to perform a fast and effective analysis.

The success of measuring consumption and times of your factory's production processes

20 Jan 2020

2020 has begun. A year where the business world will be more competitive than ever and where increasing the productivity without major expenses will be a need. We must be aware that if we don’t measure, we won’t get data, and if we don’t get data, we won’t take the right decisions.
