Why is software playing such an important role when it comes to compressed air monitoring?
The installed measurement equipment in a compressed air system provides real time data output of every sensor, like the air flow output of a compressor, energy consumption and many more. Typically, the sensors / meters are connected to a gateway, like our display and data loggers, where the data is gathered and stored locally. But that means, the data is only stored safely in a data logger, to provide a monitoring of the compressed air system, a software solution is needed. The monitoring software provides a live view of the system, it alarms users if limit values are reached, it creates automatic reports and helps users to understand their system.
SUTO software is capable to analyze big data sets, create useful graphic views or provides real time values of each single sensor. Bigger systems can be grouped into smaller locations, so all values can be easily seen in a single screen. But not only live values are important, especially the past data is crucial for optimizing compressed air system, going back in time and recognize changes on the system, finding degrading components or other irregularities.
Which sensor types can be connected to SUTO software solutions?
SUTO software solutions are optimized to work with SUTO hardware. Display and data loggers can be automatically detected in the network environment. So local flow meters, power meters and dew point sensors can be all connected to the software. But SUTO software is also based on standard protocols, which allows users to connect any third party device to the monitoring solution.
For this, SUTO software support Modbus/RTU and Modbus/TCP protocols to collect the data from any compressed air measurement solution. Furthermore, via gateways, its even possible to integrate any industrial protocol into the system.
Why are SUTO solutions cloud based or running in a web browser?
Cloud based software solutions are providing users powerful software tools with minimal efforts. Different to local installations, a cloud based solution is fully managed and maintained by our experienced software engineers. This means local IT administrators do not need to spend time to update and maintain the software, there is no need for local backups or upgrading computer hardware.
Cloud solutions are offering users the next level of freedom, the software just works without additional efforts. Since the software is accessed via a web browser, it offers the most flexibility. Users can access the software from any PC and operating system, no matter if it's a Windows PC, an Apple Mac or even a Linux system.
SUTO software solutions are taking compressed air measurements to the next level by offering IoT solutions paired with the right application software. Welcome to the Industry 4.0.
What kind of software solutions can SUTO offer?
All SUTO software in relation to the compressed air measurement equipment is developed by our passionate software engineers. Not only the monitoring software or software to read out the data loggers, also configuration software for sensors and data loggers, all is developed by SUTO and optimized for a seamless integration. And the best is, most of the solutions are offered for free.
SUTO offers software for live monitoring of the compressed air system, providing a real time data, alarm management and reporting functions.
Additionally, SUTO offers software to manage leak surveys, but not only managing the found leaks, it provides service companies the possibilities to manage the complete audit, from finding the leaks, collecting the data and creating reports, to finally fixing the leakages, estimating cost savings and repair costs.
In addition, software tools for quick analyzes and data logger read-outs are offered for free.
Which software is used to configure SUTO sensors in the field?
Almost all SUTO sensors for compressed air and gases are equipped with a wireless interface. To connect to the installed sensors in the field, SUTO offers a free app, which runs on any smartphone. Most of the engineers installing measurement equipment are used to carry around bulky laptops, notebooks and several interfaces which allows them to connect to local hardware. Not only can the hardware often not be reached easily, but also having the need of constant power supply makes the commissioning of sensor hardware complicated and time-consuming.
SUTO solved that by offering wireless solutions directly integrated into the sensor, paired with dedicated smartphone applications.
Now, technicians and engineers can connect to sensors and measurement equipment wirelessly and from a distance. The application shows the real-time measurement data and allow users to configure the sensors easily. Parameters like pipe diameters, communication parameters or analog output scaling can be done easily from the smartphone with a single click.
