We don’t have to tell you that there is a growing demand for device connectivity in industrial and commercial facilities. You see it everywhere you look, but you may not realize the concrete benefits you could take away from it. The underrated benefit our SMC Cloud customers are gaining? Preventative maintenance.

It may feel like, mastering preventative maintenance feels like the holy grail in the manufacturing world. Trust us, we know! As life safety device manufacturers, we understand that preventative maintenance is a multi-faceted goal that begins with cloud connectivity at the device level.

There are a handful of manufacturers implementing this solution utilizing our FieldServer cloud connectivity devices. For example, one manufacturer we work with ensures that all of their equipment installed in hospitals is monitored very closely.

What are they monitoring for? Failure trends and patterns.

Could you imagine how catastrophic an industrial device failure would be at the hospital? Probably just as catastrophic as a boiler explosion in a college dorm building. Events like these can easily be avoided by implementing our cloud application FieldView – a suite of device management functions including:

Customized dashboard for visibility in the field
Inventory mapping and status of equipment
Alerts and notifications coming from your equipment
Integrated product registration
Remote monitoring equipment to troubleshoot maintenance

FieldView allows the manufacturer to tunnel into their devices from any location and manage its functionality specific to their business needs. From monitoring temperature to pressure to energy and more, FieldView provides users with a suite of tools that can benefit a business’s preventative maintenance strategy.
