Machine State Detection On Off Using Wireless IoT Sensors

How To Detect Machine State (On/Off) Using Long Range Wireless IoT Sensors Machine State Detection without interference with existing wiring is a critical component to machine health monitoring.  Using AC current detection sensors, machine on/off state detection is now possible, allowing you to monitor the operational hours of any machine on the factory floor.   Detecting an On/Off, Idle or under load conditions of a machine has traditionally been very challenging. Over there years we have received many requests from our users who needed a device which can detect these machine states and send a push notification as soon a motor
