Sense Connect Detect Industry 4.0 Sensor Product Picture

Entering Industry 4.0 has never been so easy

The Sense Connect Detect (SCD) enables companies to get started easily with industry 4.0. As a cost-effective, reliable (IP67) and easy-to-install solution, the sensor device attaches to almost any machine and component. The data acquisition process can start right away and reports wirelessly via Bluetooth low energy. The acquired data is visualized via mobile App that can be operated without prior knowledge.

The wait has come to an end: You want to get an insight into the inner workings of your machine in less than five minutes? We have the right solution for you: Sense Connect Detect.

With built-in sensors for vibration, tilt, shock, temperature, magnetic fields and ambient light intensity, this sensor device provides data that enables you to reduce maintenance costs, maximize machine production, and drive better business decisions.

The sensor data is acquired by a waterproof and dust resistant device and is reported wirelessly via Bluetooth low energy (BLE v4.2).

Sense Connect Detect solution enables wide spread use across many applications thus generating data to accomplish your I4.0 strategy based on machine learning.

The setup is very easy. The compact sensor device can be glued to any surface. All you have to do is to remove the adhesive strip. The installation is already completed when the SCD App is downloaded and connected to the retrofittable sensor via Bluetooth. Now it is time to collect data, save costs and increase efficiency of your factory.
