Summary


What Are Sensors?

Sensors are devices in that detect and respond to different types of inputs. Active sensors require power to operate and interact directly with the process they monitor, while passive sensors operate without power, simply observing and reporting on conditions.

Benefits of Using Sensors

  • Reliable Data Collection And Precision in Industrial or Environmental Areas

  • Boosting Process Speeds in Manufacturing And Logistics

  • Provides Remote Monitoring Over Production Control 

  • Assists in The Conservation of Natural Resources

Sensors Overview

 
Sensor technology is one of the most important parts of any smart technology due to its ability to collect data, allow interaction, and give feedback. All of these attributes are fundamental for systems to keep adapting and improving. Their role is especially important in process control, where they contribute significantly to the efficiency and adaptability of operations, making sure that setups are both practical and capable of evolving.

There are two main types of sensors in process control: active sensors, which create their own signal for tasks that need direct interaction; and passive sensors, which use natural stimulation for tasks such as monitoring. Each is chosen based on the process's need for either active engagement or simple observation.


Use Cases


  • Location Tracking: 

    • Using GPS systems and RFID tags, location tracking helps businesses monitor the whereabouts of their assets in real-time. This feature is helpful inside logistics for tracking shipments and in manufacturing for locating materials within facilities​.​

  • Industrial IoT applications:

    • Remote Production Control:

      • IoT devices allow you to monitor production and remotely configure your equipment. Employees can collect data on production and adjust settings as needed from afar, simplifying operation management and control​​.
    • Adjusting Process Output:

      • Sensors are essential in modifying production to meet specific output requirements. Monitoring variables like temperature and pressure sensors enable control over production lines, ensuring product quality and consistency.

  • Autonomous Operation with Minimal Power:

    • Many passive sensors can operate with minimal or no external power. They're able to collect and transmit data independently, which is a unique advantage that sets them apart from other data collection technologies.
