Generally known as a PLC's, RTU's DCS controllers and micro controllers.
Devices are programmed to check the condition of a sensor and report back at a time interval of your choice.
Our own device is called the "Mako"
A Gateway is what connects a device to the internet.
Our gateway is called the PASS-PORT
Data is retrieved and processed from a device and performs functions
Smithtek.cloud is a web-based HMI Scada system. Inside the cloud, fresh data received from the Gateway can be seen in a list we call "variables".
These variables are responsive in realtime, we call a sensor change, a 'data dot', also knows as a data time stamp.
Just like a SCADA system you can customise and design your cloud page, also known as a "Dash Board".
With drag and drop capabilities you can be running in minutes.
