Remote control and monitoring products eliminate the need for physical presence
Now that we are starting to re-open, how can you keep your workers safe in a research and development area or on the process floor where working conditions may be tight or products can’t be moved? Add products with remote control and monitoring to gain the distance you need to keep your employees safe. We have a few popular products that will go the distance for you by not only adding social distancing for your employees but also providing you with more efficiency, accuracy and time savings.
Advances in remote monitoring and control have eliminated the need for a physical presence in the lab or on in your process, giving researchers the ability to achieve remotely much of the same control and monitoring they need to get their jobs done. Remote monitoring can be beneficial for R&D departments tasked with experiments or pilot testing. For those conducting around-the-clock experiments, the ability to monitor the equipment remotely is a huge advantage.
With access to IoT, researchers and other types of lab managers can leave their experiments overnight, allowing their pumps and other expensive instruments to run without risk of failure or loss of valuable samples. Technicians no longer need to stand at spectrophotometers to wait for results, manually record data, and then input it into the computer to share for record-keeping. IoT enables access to the cloud, which allows data to be input anywhere, accessed anywhere, and printed/shared anywhere. It’s the perfect answer to keep employees at a safe distance.
