Sensata Technologies Launches IIoT Platform to Boost Manufacturing Productivity

By Stefania Viscusi April 26, 2022

One industry where productivity levels hold extreme importance is in the manufacturing environment. With so much focus placed on efficiency at all times, the need for systems that continuously monitor and manage assets are critical.

Sensata Technologies just launched a new platform, Sensata IQ, that tracks and manages data from IoT devices and sensors around the factory to help prevent unplanned downtime.

When machines in production lines and other areas of a shop go down, the result is extreme financial loss each minute that an asset is not performing its intended function. 

In the past, having advanced monitoring systems throughout the facility to help with this was expensive, time consuming and required specific expertise. Many chose to only monitor large and critical assets and as a result, unplanned downtime still remained an ongoing threat.

Now, with this easy to install solution they can easily monitor and manage assets from a smartphone, PC or tablet and there is no deep domain expertise needed to setup and manage the monitoring systems.

Using artificial intelligence, Sensata IQ processes data and gains insights into the health of the assets being monitored. Managers can stay in the know about the health of their factory’s equipment and proactively respond to maintenance needs or other repairs needed before downtime can negatively affect production and efficiency levels.

“By leveraging Sensata’s deep sensor domain expertise along with AI technology, the Sensata IQ platform can reliably and accurately identify machine anomalies, characterize faults, and extend the working life of assets,” said Naoto Mizuta, Vice President of Industrial at Sensata Technologies.

Smart factories are quickly maturing today thanks to more intelligent network technologies and sensor capabilities. Sensata Technologies’ smart sensor systems for Industrial IoT applications deliver valuable and actionable insights. With computer-integrated solutions and digital technologies, rapid increases in production levels, optimized supply chains and more worker safety is just the beginning.

“We are working closely with customers and partners to develop scalable solutions that make it easier and more affordable to implement remote monitoring and predictive maintenance strategies beyond the critical assets in a plant,” said Mizuta.
