In 2017 Economists wrote an article regarding the rise of the use of data for companies and how oil is no longer the most valued resource in the world. With the rapid rise of companies desperate to get hold of vast amounts of data to improve their algorithm or process, they were not wrong.
For engineers, data is increasingly in demand for use in future developments, process adjustments and maintenance. The ability to obtain this information and use the data is becoming a way to keep your business competitive but, most importantly, to stay ahead of the curve and ahead of your competitors.
Many legacy applications are being refitted to get serial signals and monitor certain aspects, giving service engineers the insight into when maintenance is needed on the application. You can truly squeeze data out of anywhere.
The question then, is how do you get the data from sites to the data processor / database? A lot of the time, IT would take over and either allow the data through a complex means or flatly deny the practice from happening.
Phoenix Contact has an answer for you. The TC Router family can help you secure data as well as transport the data to your location. With an inbuilt firewall you can be sure that you and only you have the data.
If power consumption is an issue, which is often the case for applications powered by Solar power, the TC Router comes with a power-save function which waits for a contact free input to engage the GSM modem within the TC Router. This allows you to save on data costs and data dumps on condition.
In conjunction with our PROFICLOUD solution you can obtain the data and then the possibilities are endless in processing the data.
