INDUSTRIAL TEMPERATURE SENSOR
- Low-Power Wide-Area Networks (LPWANs) have recently emerged as appealing communication systems in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT). Particularly, they proved effective in typical IoT applications such as in following industries where use cases are :
- If the temperature dips below 32°F, it will cause product to freeze up. Below-freezing temperatures in a commercial refrigerator may indicate a problem within the system.
- Many products need to be kept at very consistent temperatures. If those temperatures shift unexpectedly, you’ll know something’s wrong. A simple example is a freezer. A freezer’s whole function relies on maintaining a consistent temperature, so the sensor would be used to tell if the internal temperature deviates from normal.
- Thermal imaging can warn of leaks where insulation might be wearing out.
- High friction causes heat, meaning temperature sensors can detect if there’s too much friction in bearing systems.
