Wireless Sensing Solutions
Enabling data driven decisions to improve your operations
Wzzard Wireless Sensing Technology delivers the data you need to manage, improve and optimize your operations.
Regardless of your industry, there is constant pressure to increase efficiency, reduce waste, reduce energy consumption and maximize uptime of equipment.
But making those improvements often requires data that you don’t have. Too often the effort required to get the data is complex, expensive and disruptive to critical equipment or processes, so those valuable projects are set aside.
Wzzard Wireless Sensing Solutions solves that problem, making it easy and non-intrusive to capture sensor data from existing equipment and operations to enable ongoing improvements that lower costs, increase productivity and reduce waste.
How does Wzzard accomplish this?
Wzzard turns sensors into smart, wireless devices
- A range of analog, digital and temperature inputs allows connectivity to hundreds of sensor types
- Wzzard nodes convert sensor readings into engineering data easily used by a range of applications
Long life battery powered sensor nodes eliminate costly wiring
- Wzzard reduces total installed cost by over 60% compared to wired solutions
Self-forming, self-healing wireless mesh network provides wired-class reliability. No RF experience required.
- Smartmesh IP wireless technology provides best in class reliability
- Every Wzzard node is a routing, repeating node, making Wzzard easy to install and expand
Gateway with built-in applications capability eliminates the need for software development
- Web dashboards, email or SMS alerts, data logging, reports capabilities are built in
- Powered by Node-RED, running in a protected Linux container inside the gateway to ensure reliability
Pre-configured application kits allow you to deploy Proof of Concept and Pilot projects in hours, not days, weeks or months
- Starter kits include everything you need to demonstrate the value of Wzzard. Gateway, Wzzard Sensor Node, Sensors, Application Dashboard.
- No engineering required!
Need Help with your Proof of Concept system?
Many opportunities to improve efficiency, productivity and reduce waste are never explored. They are cast aside because it’s too difficult to get the data needed to demonstrate their value. Wzzard was developed to simplify the process of acquiring the data needed to make those improvements, without any disruption to existing systems. See how Wzzard Starter Kits can help you quickly prove your business case!
Wzzard Energy Monitoring Starter Kit
Energy reduction programs require data. Installing traditional power monitoring equipment on legacy equipment or in existing facilities is expensive and intrusive, requiring specialized installation and power interruption to live equipment. The Wzzard Energy Monitoring Starter Kit makes it easy to monitor current consumption of individual machines or circuits, giving you the data you need to optimize processes and energy utilization.
Wzzard HVAC/Compressor Monitoring Starter Kit
Cooling systems are often “teamed” with many cooling units working in tandem. In many cases there are no management systems in place, making it impossible to detect performance problems until so many units fail that there is a loss of environmental control, causing problems ranging from dissatisfied facility tenants to loss of inventory or unscheduled shutdowns of production. The Wzzard HVAC/Compressor Monitoring Starter Kit makes it easy to see the run time, duty cycle, and output effectiveness of each unit, allowing you to maximize uptime and eliminate problems before they cause failures that impact your bottom line.
Build your own Wzzard Solution
Wzzard mesh sensor nodes can connect to most any sensor. Simply select the Wzzard sensor nodes, add a Gateway and you can develop your own wireless sensing solution. The embedded Node-RED makes it easy to create applications inside the gateway, or the gateway can publish Wzzard sensor data to your favorite application platform using the popular MQTT protocol.
