July 2018




Although the concept of IoT within Industry 4.0 may be hazy to most, there are at least three concepts that need to stay in the forefront while facilities plan for improvement.  According to a recent article published by PlantServices, Connectivity, Mobility and Usability are vital to consider when planning a successful IoT upgrade.  Connectivity in this instance relates to getting data from all devices off of the plant floor for analytics and analysis.  Mobility refers to the ability to get the software app onto a mobile device (ie DevCom) for real time insight in turn providing the worker with an instant interface.  Usability refers to how eager the worker is to use the tools provided.  If an employee is unable or unwilling to adopt a new instrument the entire data set will be skewed. 


Bottom line is that there is so much valuable data available and accessable, an organization needs to have a clear and consistent IoT strategy from the plant floor to the top floor.

DevCom + EtherNet = Easy Remote Access with HART-IP

The HART® Protocol was enhanced in 2012 to include the transmission of HART data over the Internet Protocol (IP) using Transmission Communication Protocol (TCP). HART-IP is simply the HART protocol rendered over Ethernet. The addition of HART-IP capability to HART host applications provides a quick and easy way to configure, monitor and diagnose HART devices on WirelessHART networks. HART Device communications can be wireless if the plant has a Wi-Fi network in place. HART-IP device access then removes the need to go onto the plant floor to view or change the configuration of a device. This provides significant time and cost savings and improved personnel safety.

Thanks for your feedback!

Procomsol welcomes all of the feedback we can get.  Here is a recent testimonial... 
“Most of our people have android phones so it makes sense to run the DevComDroid software on our own devices rather than more cumbersome handheld devices. Bluetooth capability lets us remotely control the connected device so reduces the need for two people doing an end to end loop check. It’s dependable and efficient technology, and has saved us time and money.”

They certainly are fascinating creatures!  Did you know
