What makes Industrial IoT truly beneficial, are the valuable new data points it offers whilst monitoring key elements in industrial processes. Especially when easily installed (retrofittable) and provisioned in seconds. This is exactly what TWTG NEON Temperature Sensor does. It provides insight into temperature changes, on almost every industrial asset, instantly. All in the reliable NEON form factor that comes as a battery powered, IECEx Class 1 / ATEX Zone 1 certified1 I-IoT device, communicating wirelessly via LoRaWAN.
TWTG NEON Temperature Sensor can be attached to existing infrastructure and monitors changes in temperature. These insights can positively benefit operations. Currently it is in use at several industrial sites on insulated oil storage terminals and on transportation pipes but the solution can be used in various other scenarios. In oil storage, it monitors the contained product temperature to reach the desired viscosity for easy transportation and to ensure the product properties.
IECEx Class 1 / ATEX Zone 1 certified / FM Approved
Designed for industry from the very beginning, TWTG’s NEON product line is built to not only operate in industrial sites where explosive gasses are being handled but also all other elements that a sensor may be exposed to in the course of its 10 year lifetime. It has been tested and certified to work in conditions from -40° to 80° Celsius without hampering performance. The devices are designed and engineered in such a way that they can be safely and securely deployed in a wireless network and are fully remotely configurable, ensuring not only longevity but also reliability within an operation. The devices have also received FM approval and are fully certified for use in the United States and Canada.
Additionally, TWTG delivers spare parts and product lifecycle support. Hence, even at the end of the battery lifetime, the sensor can continue to be used with the correct refurbishment kit. This way, periodical maintenance can be kept at a minimum.
NEON Temperature Sensor can be installed / mounted using various methods ranging from its built-in magnets (for easy placement on ferro metals), to band clamps or a bracket (for specific use cases available).
Alerts for drastic changes in temperature.
NEON Product Line - LoRa devices designed for heavy industry
The TWTG NEON product 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.
NEON stands for a standardised approach to collecting data points from within the operation and a general approach to creating integrated solutions with existing IT ecosystems.
