Ruggedised IoT Process Loop Sensor
The Urban.io Process Loop Sensor measures the current on a 4-20 mA industrial control loop or industrial sensor and reports the mA value as a percentage (%).
Used in conjunction with an Urban.io Gateway the Process Loop Sensor will read and transmit the percentage (%) to the Urban.io Cloud Platform on a near real-time basis, where it can be configured to translate the reading into a specific range value and displayed with custom units.
Measured data is securely displayed within the Urban.io Cloud Platform for reporting purposes. Through the use of dynamic profiles, thresholds can be set for each sensor which can trigger alarms that can be sent via email or SMS.
All recorded sensor data, historical summaries and alarms are made available for use within external software platforms via the IoT Data API.
The Urban.io Process Loop Sensor is wired in series with an existing 4-20mA sensor and “piggy-back” measures the mA value in that sensor loop. This alows the Process Loop Sensor to mimic and report the values being read by an isolated or remote industrial sensor that is not connected to a SCADA or analytics platform.
