2021: A Year of Success at Phase IV Engineering

At Phase IV Engineering, we measure our success by evaluating how happy our customers are.

When “oh no” surprises become “a-ha” insights because our wireless sensor system is effectively solving our clients’ problems and delivering a rapid return on investment, our clients are happy — and we’re able to share in their success. With 2021 winding to a close, we’re excited to announce that this year has been our most successful year yet!

Let’s take a look at some of our greatest successes of the past year.

A Leap Forward for Wireless Sensor Technology

First and foremost, the final development and launch of our Leap Sensors® technology was a massive win.

We’ve been in the wireless sensor business for nearly 30 years, and we listen to what our clients want: complex sensors that are easy to use. Our industrial wireless sensing system installs in just five minutes and can be customized for almost any application. The foundation of the Leap Sensors’ design was built from the ground up to be flexible and efficiently configurable so that when the solution arrives, it’s exactly what customers want because it meets their system’s unique needs.

To that end, we delighted our clients working in medical and […]

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 goes down, workers sit idle and production deadlines get missed. It can also mean major expenses if an entire motor has to be replaced instead of just one part. This is where predictive maintenance and motor condition monitoring comes in.

Motor Condition Monitoring and Industry 4.0

Manufacturers have begun to use industrial sensor systems to monitor their equipment. A network of sensors can monitor a motor’s actual conditions, establishing a baseline and then establishing parameters that may indicate a problem. Maintenance can then be scheduled for downtime, and before it becomes a bigger headache.

Often, however, these systems are expensive and complicated to install. Retrofitting wired sensors onto existing equipment can mean extra work and hassle to get them up […]

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 monitoring. A door left open or a power outage is both a health hazard and costly, so accurate tracking and monitoring is crucial.

Some commercial-grade units are equipped with continuous monitoring systems that meet CDC or FDA guidelines and industry best practices, but what do you do if your cold storage unit doesn’t have these features built-in? Phase IV has just released its refrigerator & freezer monitoring system. Part of the breakthrough Leap Sensors system, it’s designed to integrate seamlessly with your existing refrigerators and freezers at temperatures down to −40°C/°F.

Our smart design makes it simple for you. The advantages of the Leap Sensors refrigerator & freezer temperature monitoring system include:

  • A paper-thin […]
