As we enter the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0), our world as we see it will be more and more integrated with with sensors and “smart” devices, connecting our physical and biological spheres with the digital world. We can electronically monitor machines and controllers remotely, using real-time and historical data to optimize the performance of systems and processes, saving time for people and businesses to make informed decisions. Even on a personal level by improving our quality of life with wearable devices and portable monitors.
SkyLab advocates innovations and technology breakthroughs in this industrial internet age, and focuses our solutions and product development in the following:
Applying smart manufacturing in factories provides real-time production dashboards allowing businesses to remotely monitor, optimize and control production. Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) collect data automatically, enabling equipment settings to be self adjusted based on ambient conditions and the particular product being made. Continuously monitoring machine health allows proactive predictive maintenance scheduling, thus reducing unscheduled downtime and prolonging machine life.
Smart utilities for energy, water and waste management provide real time integrated operations and control dashboards to remotely monitor, optimize and control facilities. Collecting performance data allows for predictive asset maintenance of machines and controllers, enabling real-time situational awareness, safety and surveillance of critical utilities infrastructure.
