Ensuring Compressed Air Quality with a Wireless Pressurized Dew Point Sensor: A Game Changer for Industrial Applications

In a factory, compressed air is as essential as electricity and water. It powers pneumatic pistons, tools, cleaning equipment, and more. The challenge, however, is keeping the lines moisture-free, since air in the lines can easily form condensation

What is Pressurized Dew Point?

There’s always moisture present in the ambient air (think humidity). When the air temperature drops, the moisture condenses and forms dew. Dew point is defined as the temperature at […]

Reduce Downtime & Improve Operational Efficiency with Automated Production & Downtime Tracking Sensors

By Scott Dalgleish, CEO of Phase IV Engineering

Bilocation: the state of being or ability to be in two places at the same time. (Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary)

Don’t you sometimes wonder, when you’re sitting in a meeting, about what you might be missing outside the meeting? I think this is especially true for managers in manufacturing, as there’s so much happening on the production floor. When I started my career as a shift manager at a major coffee processing plant, I once […]

Worried about Water Damage? Introducing Our Wireless Flood Sensor

A Forbes magazine article published in 2021 stated that “A study of 729,999 commercial and residential properties in the contiguous U.S. concluded that floods will cost businesses $26.8 billion in direct lost output and $23 billion in lost output due to downtime in 2022.” And this doesn’t include risks to civil structures such as tunnels or underpasses. Clearly, water damage, whether from burst pipes, leaks, or flooding, is a major concern. Because of this, Phase IV has developed a […]

How Do Cellular IoT Sensors Work?

Do you need to monitor something in a remote location? Or maybe need to just monitor a couple of things for a short amount of time? Or do you want to make installing some sensors as simple as possible? The Leap Sensor’s cellular IoT sensor transceiver node can be a great solution. […]

How Differential Air Pressure Gauge Sensors Are Used in Manufacturing

The aroma of coffee emanating from your local coffee shop entices you in the morning. But what if the aroma wasn’t from the Starbucks down the street, but from a roasting factory in your city? Along with that enticing aroma, the coffee roasting process, like any other industrial process, results in by-products that you don’t want to escape into the air.

Chaff is the papery-thin skin of the coffee bean which falls off the bean when it’s roasted. In an industrial […]

Advantages of Structural Health Monitoring Using IoT and CAN bus Technology

There has been a lot of news coverage lately about the troubles with US infrastructure. In fact, the American Society for Civil Engineers 2021 Structural Report Card recently graded America’s infrastructure at a C-, mentioning “staggering maintenance backlogs,” with 11 of the 17 categories rated falling in the D range.

This is precisely why there is a growing need for a simple, reliable, and cost-effective system for remote structural health monitoring (SHM) using the Internet of Things (IoT), […]

Introducing Bulk Over-Air Transmission & Download for Vibration Data

Vibration monitoring is an established tool for predictive maintenance. Just like a rough-running car engine means it’s time to have a mechanic take a look – changes in the shaking, or vibration, of factory machinery can indicate a possible problem.

Phase IV’s Leap Sensors system offers sensors that monitor vibration only, as well as vibration in combination with two other predictors of motor health, temperature and amperes. (And with Leap’s modular, flexible multi-sensor design, you can combine vibration monitoring […]

How Motor Sensors Predict – and Prevent – Equipment Failure

Predictive maintenance is vital to keep equipment running at its peak at all times. In a variety of industries, using wireless sensors for motor condition monitoring helps minimize unplanned shutdowns and reduces the cost of maintenance.

Motors are the workhorses of manufacturing facilities, powering conveyors, pumps, blowers, fans, compressors, and more. Even one failed motor can impact an entire production line, with the possibility of huge losses in time and money. When a line […]

Innovative Wireless Temperature Monitoring for Freezers & Refrigerators

Temperature-sensitive products like COVID-19 vaccines call for fail-safe cold storage units. Phase IV Engineering now offers wireless temperature monitoring systems that easily attach to a facility’s existing refrigerators, freezers, or ultra-low freezers.

Anyone who has kept up with the news knows that certain COVID-19 vaccines are incredibly temperature-sensitive. If vials are left out too long at the wrong temperature, the vaccine degrades and must be discarded. Other sensitive items, from lab samples to frozen food, also require accurate temperature […]
