TWTG will launch two new Industrial IoT products: NEON Vibration Sensor and NEON Thermocouple Sensor at Rotterdam this week.

The two new sensors will form part of TWTG’s I-IoT product line for heavy industry. It said in a statement: “Digitalisation is one of biggest trends in heavy industry and it is starting to deliver on its promises. Though, finding fitting solutions that provide real value from the first day is not easy. The Internet of Things needed to adapt to the standards, regulations and demands – TWTG NEON is the result of this and this industry defining product line is now being expanded with two new products: NEON Thermocouple Sensor and NEON Vibration Sensor.”

As soon as assets, such as engines, conveyor belts, and pumps start to fail, the NEON Vibration Sensor sends alerts to maintenance engineers. This sets off a trigger when there is a change of frequency in the vibration or when outliers in the data occur. An engineer is then alerted to check on this asset to prevent it from failure or long-term damage, which saves costs and ensures operational uptime. This means assets that are not under constant supervision from operators can now be monitored around the clock.

The TWTG NEON Thermocouple Sensor comes with a wired thermocouple and uses on-board intelligence to determine average values over user-determined time scales to provide insights that can be used directly within existing systems. 

The device can be attached to existing installations and monitors changes or absolute extremes in temperature. By monitoring these on a variety of locations, insights can positively benefit operations. With the wired thermocouple, extremely low (-270°C) or high (1,700°C) temperatures can be measured. 

TWTG said in a release: “The range supports all industrial customers moving towards LoRaWAN as the Industrial IoT network of the future. The LoRaWAN network gives industrial operations a secure solution, which has no vendor lock-in, scales up to tens of thousands of sensors, covers complete sites with only a small amount of gateways and best of all – the low-power approach means that the lifetime of the NEON products can be extended dramatically. This international networking technology is quickly becoming the industry standard.”
