Predictive Maintenance and Machine Health Monitoring

Predictive Maintenance and Machine Health Monitoring Using Losant and ncd.io Current Monitor Predictive Maintenance and Machine health monitoring is one of the most critical and important parts of the automation industry. In an automation or production factory these machines work on an average 20 hours per day.  In modern automation, all these machines work together and stay in sync, so its very important that every single machine is healthy.  In the old days, the usual ways to monitor machine health was manual inspection and occasional temperature readings.  With modern day technology, we can monitor these machines 24-7 and analyze the

Getting Started with Losant and a NCD Temperature Humidity Sensor

Getting Started with Losant and NCD Temperature Humidity Sensor Recently I discovered this really cool company called Losant. They build Enterprise level IoT software solutions and their platform is so easy to use, supporting tons of hardware platforms. So I decided to give it a try.  Losant is a great choice for Raspberry pi, ESP8266, Arduino, and Particle. In this article, I will be interfacing a temperature humidity sensor with Losant through an ESP8266. This is a simple application, but it will give us pretty good idea about how to use Losant with ncd.io hardware.  It only took a few

IoT Arduino Wireless Temperature Humidity sensor

IoT Arduino Wireless Temperature Humidity Sensor Temperature Humidity sensors are one of the most common and widely used sensors with Arduino and other IoT platforms. There are so many use cases where a temperature humidity sensors can be used to detect potential problem like frozen pipes, broken freezers, malfunctioning air conditioning, water/humidity detection in crawl spaces and much more. In this IoT Arduino wireless temperature Humidity sensor project we will interface a long range wireless temperature humidity sensor with Arduino. These readings can be used to set an alarm or to send an alert. There are so many sensors which

Communication API In this section we will have two option 1. ncd generic Communication API ( could be used in cellular communication or wired communication or point to point communication)  2. ncd Mesh Communication API We will have different structure for LoraWAN. our main aim for having standard(LoraWAN) api is so that our device can work with any LoraWAN gateway in the world. its very important to build a device which can work with generic  gateway. User should be able to select between mesh or standard communication. by default all device will come with standard API. ncd generic Communication API

Isolated 4-20mA current loop transmitter

Interfacing Isolated 4-20mA Current Loop Transmitter Arduino

Interfacing Isolated 4-20mA Current Loop Transmitter Arduino In our last post we interfaced 4-20mA current loop receiver with the arduino, in this article we will learn how you can interface isolated 4-20mA current loop transmitter board with arduino. 4-20mA transmitter devices are used to provide 4-20mA signal which can be used to control pumps, valves, switches and transducers. For example lets say you want to want to control a sprinkler which works on 4-20mA current loop signal, in that case you will need a 4-20mA current loop transmitter board. To control such a sprinkler you will change the current output
