Advantages of Telemetry in Industrial Environments

Industrial operations and processes consist of various equipment and applications, each with specific functions intended to product an outcome. Therefore, in order to guarantee a positive outcome, these applications need to be properly monitored and managed with telemetry systems.

Telemetry systems provide an innovative solution to acquiring essential data from remotely located areas within harsh industrial environments–including wastewater treatment, oil & gas, manufacturing and processing, chemical plants, and refineries.

Because these monitoring systems incorporate a unique remote monitoring feature, excessive traveling, entry into inaccessible places and unnecessary trips to the field can be eliminated. This ultimately minimizes costs and downtime while maximizing site productivity. Telemetry can also save money spent on infrastructure, equipment installation and maintenance, and software upgrades. 

Industrial operations tend to exhibit levels of hazards to both personnel and the environment. With monitoring and management systems in-place, designated personnel can receive customized alerts and notifications via text or email, allowing issues to be solved quickly and efficiently.
