Industry Insight

ITS – Intelligent Transportation Systems

– Signage – Urban (local power) and Rural (requires QSolarBattery) and QCS IIoT for Remote Monitoring
and Control
– Toll Stations – Industrial – Embedded Computers, Routers with VPN and Fiber Optic, Managed Ethernet
switches with Single or Multimode Fiberoptic, NPort Serial to Ethernet Devices, MGate for Protocol
Converters
– Street Lights & Security Cameras – PoE Managed Switches with Single or Multimode Fiber Optic
– Train Signal Crossing – Managed Ethernet Switches and Routers
– Tunnel ITS – All of the above plus Fan Control – See Caldecott Tunnel White Paper

Stormwater Control

– Bridge Underpass Pump House Control + Weather Station + QCS IIoT + VPN access
– Tunnel Drainage Systems – same as above

Heavy Equipment

Requires wide temperature rating + higher shock and vibration specifications
– Remote Monitoring – QRTU using PLC – LTE Cellular Edge Gateway – QCS IIoT
– Asset Tracking – QRTU – GPS using Embedded Linux Computer with GPS and LTE Cellular – QCS IIoT

New or Recycled Pavement

Remote Testing of Pavement – on a pickup truck following the “Smart Paver” by about ¼ mile
Benefits – QCS IIoT can send the tested sample information directly to the customer and DoT for
approval right on the spot vs being sent to a test center. Also, this SQC (Statistical Quality Control
Information) can be sent via LTE Cellular to the “Smart Paver” PLC to modify the Setpoint of usually Oil or
Water to provide better consistency…therefore Statistical Process Control.
– QSolarBattery – Lithium-Ion Battery with possible small Solar Panel for remote power vs a generator to
control the Test Machine which requires power to the control panel, servo motor, and compactor.
– QRTU – The actual control panel for the Compactor Test Machine
– QCS IIoT – Industrial Internet of Things Cloud-based Software for data logging, dashboard, and can
send data to other places like DoT for approval and to another control system like the “Smart Paver”

Sandbags LV night

Saving Lives and Properties with Sandbags

During natural disaster situations, sandbags are used to protect people and property. In addition to becoming lifesaving tools during floods and storms, sandbags are also used to provide a steady base for oil, gas, and water pipelines. Sandbags are used in these situations because they provide consistent, flexible weight that enables them to become effective barriers and ballast in a variety of applications. Read More

PLC Upgrade Unlocks Testing Efficiency

For air filter manufacturer K&N Engineering, a high number of simultaneous parallel processes taxed an older test system. A  controls upgrade for the test stations doubled test-process efficiency.
K&N Engineering (www.kandn.com) manufactures washable performance air filters and air intake systems for a variety of systems, such as cars, trucks, motorcycles and industrial engines. Read More
