Industrial IoT instrumentation manufacturer Define Instruments released their latest addition to its IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) product range. The Nimbus is a smart relay unit with a built-in Cloud interface.
Designed specifically to allow industrial companies to control and connect their production-line machines to the Cloud, the Nimbus provides the opportunity for these companies to improve efficiency and reduce costs by utilizing operational data from their machines to more accurately plan maintenance, consumables replenishment, parts replacement and other ongoing tasks.
The Nimbus is an all-in-one solution for controlling small machines. The conveniently compact unit measures only 3.98” x 0.91” x 4.72” and provides 3 programmable relay outputs capable of switching mains powered equipment. It features industrial grade analog and digital I/O, with 4–20mA and NTC temperature inputs.
Additionally, the Nimbus has a built-in Cloud interface so you can send data from your machine to the Cloud – useful for scheduling maintenance, replenishing consumables and other “upkeep” tasks.
Explore the current state of the production, processing, and manufacturing industries and discover what it will take to achieve re-industrialization of the former industrial powerhouses that can counterbalance the benefits of cheap labor providers dominating the industrial sector. This book explores the potential for the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), and Smart Factory technologies to replace the still largely mechanical, people-based systems of offshore locations.
