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.
