LTE-M Standard Redefines Cellular Efficiency For Water Meter Readings

The term “cellular” often calls to mind certain assumptions and limitations based on prior experience with consumer cellphone networks. Don’t confuse cellular-based Internet of Things (IoT) applications with past cellular experiences, though. The relatively new Long Term Evolution for Machines (LTE-M) standard represents a whole new ballgame. In short, “This is not your father’s cellular network.”

    Keep Your Pumps Running Smoothly To Optimize Process Efficiency

    Industrial pumps consume up to 20% of the world’s energy production and can be responsible for 25 to 50% of a process plant’s energy bill, according to Europump, the Hydraulic Institute and other sources. Nothing moves without them in a process plant, and they are expensive to purchase, maintain and even more to repair or replace. Reducing pump lifecycle costs (their purchase, operation and maintenance) is critical in a process plant optimizing efficiency and product output. The process and the surrounding equipment configuration can be responsible for unnecessary high pump lifecycle costs.
