It’s amazing how you can go through life and not be aware of something that is brilliant. I like to do a bit of running. Nothing competitive, just a way to try and keep the weight off as the years advance. I think it’s fair to say it’s more jogging than running. Over the years the legs have got stiffer, especially when getting out of bed in the morning, and the minor injuries become more frequent. I’ve increased my mileage in recent weeks and this led to a calf strain which was pretty sore. A personal trainer friend suggested I try out a foam roller so the next day I went shopping and within days I could feel the improvement. Two weeks later my calf is fine and I'd not taken the rest normally recommended. I’ve just done a quick web search and see the theory of lengthening muscles is by no means new and foam rollers have generally been around for about ten years. What I do know is that they are brilliant and have not only helped my calf but also helped with the general aches and pains I get in my legs.
Why didn’t I know about them sooner..?
I hear similar things from customers. They have either spent forever trying to find a suitable solution or have gone with others and found them to be lacking. Had I known to search for ‘foam roller’ on the web I’d have been laughing. As a supplier one of the tricks is working out what people search for. If I google ‘reduce leg pain after running’ I don’t get told about foam rollers.
We connect your sensors to the internet making the data available to you so you can view on your computer, tablet or smartphone; you can integrate to other software; you have configurable alerts.

It’s finding those business who need the equivalent of my foam roller..!
We are all guilty of it.... not reading the instruction manual. I did it yesterday when a new washing machine arrived and predictably I forgot to remove the transit screws. It happens all the time with our customers - we get calls about things that we thought were clearly presented in a fairly brief manual. Units are returned that have been connected to the mains even though it's clear the device operates from 12/24Vdc.
What we all want is plug and play and that's what we've brought you. We have catalogued hundreds if not thousands of sensors from the a wide range of manufacturers and can supply you with a ready to use remote monitoring solution. All you need to do is wire in your sensor and the readings are avalable through a web site and for collection via a simple and well documented API.
It's proven. It's affordable. It's flexible. It's the Industrial Internet of Things Out of a Box.
