Data monitoring is the process of collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data in real-time to identify trends, patterns, and anomalies. It is an essential tool for businesses looking to gain a competitive edge in today’s data-driven world. However, traditional methods of data monitoring can be time-consuming and inefficient, especially when dealing with large volumes of data.
This is where methods of data monitoring with a changeable routing for input channels come into play. These methods allow businesses to dynamically route data from different sources to different destinations based on predefined rules. This means that businesses can prioritize certain data sources over others, or route data to different destinations based on its relevance or importance.
The market for methods of data monitoring with a changeable routing for input channels is growing rapidly, driven by the need for more efficient and effective data monitoring solutions. Businesses are looking for ways to streamline their data monitoring processes, reduce costs, and improve the accuracy and speed of their data analysis.
There are several key players in the market for methods of data monitoring with a changeable routing for input channels. These include software vendors, hardware manufacturers, and service providers. Each of these players brings a unique set of capabilities and expertise to the table, and businesses must carefully evaluate their options to find the solution that best meets their needs.
One of the key benefits of methods of data monitoring with a changeable routing for input channels is their flexibility. Businesses can easily adjust their data monitoring processes to meet changing business needs, without having to invest in new hardware or software. This makes these solutions ideal for businesses that need to scale their data monitoring capabilities quickly and efficiently.
Another benefit of methods of data monitoring with a changeable routing for input channels is their ability to provide real-time insights. By collecting and analyzing data in real-time, businesses can quickly identify trends and patterns, and take action to address issues or capitalize on opportunities. This can help businesses stay ahead of the competition and make more informed decisions.
In conclusion, the market for methods of data monitoring with a changeable routing for input channels is a rapidly growing and dynamic space. Businesses are looking for more efficient and effective ways to monitor and analyze their data, and these solutions offer a flexible and scalable approach to data monitoring. As the demand for real-time insights continues to grow, we can expect to see continued innovation and investment in this space.
The Strong Force IoT Portfolio 2016 LLC invention works as follows
The disclosure relates to “methods for data monitoring that allow input channels to be routed in a different way.” A data collector coupled to multiple input channels is used in an example method. The data acquisition circuit interprets the detection values for each input channel. Sensor data from a first set of input channels is collected and stored along with the specifications for the sensors corresponding to the input channels. Sensor data is compared to an alarm threshold and alarm state when the threshold is exceeded. “A response circuit changes the routing of the inputs channels for data collection, from a first to an alternate route of inputs channels. The alternate route of inputs channels comprises the first input and a group related to the first.
Background for Methods of data monitoring with a changeable routing for input channels
The present disclosure is related to data collection methods and systems in industrial environments as well as data exploitation methods and system for monitoring, autonomous action and other activities within industrial environments.
In order to achieve better results, operators in heavy industrial environments must take into account a variety of metrics and parameters. These include environments such as those for large-scale manufacturing (such a manufacturing of aircraft, ships and trucks), energy production (such s as oil and natural gas plants and renewable energy environments), energy extraction (such s as drilling and mining), and construction (such s as large building construction). In the past, heavy industrial environments were data-collected by humans using dedicated data collectors. They would record large batches of sensor data onto media such as tapes or hard drives for analysis later. In the past, data was sent to a central office to be analyzed, for example, by signal processing and other analyses on data collected by sensors. The analysis could then be used to diagnose problems in an environment or suggest ways to improve operations. The work was done on a weekly or monthly basis, with limited data sets.
The Internet of Things has enabled us to continuously connect to and among a wider range of devices. These devices are mostly consumer products, like lights, thermostats and other devices. The more complex industrial environments are more challenging, because the data available is limited and it’s difficult to deal with multiple sensors. Industrial solutions that work in the industrial sector are more difficult to produce if they are “smart”. “There is a need for improved data collection methods and systems in industrial environments as well as improved methods and system for using collected data for improved monitoring, controlling, intelligent diagnosis of issues and intelligent optimization of operations within various heavy industrial environments.
Industrial systems in different environments face a variety of challenges when utilizing the data collected by a multitude of sensors. Many industrial systems are equipped with a variety of computing and networking resources at one location. This is due to factors such as the fact that parts of the system may be upgraded or replaced at different times, mobile equipment entering or leaving a particular location, or the risk and capital cost of upgrading equipment. Many industrial systems are also placed in difficult environments. Network connectivity is variable and there can be a variety of noise sources, such as electro-magnetic noise (EM noise) and vibrational noise. The process parameters of many industrial processes can be highly variable, and the non-linear response to operations outside of nominal limits is common. Sensing requirements can change with time, the operating stage of a process or equipment degradation, as well as operating conditions. The sensing configurations of industrial systems are often conservative and detect many parameters which are not required during the majority of operations or accepts risk. They also do not detect some parameters that may only be used occasionally to characterize the system. Moreover, industrial systems that were previously used are not flexible enough to configure sensed parameters quickly and in real time, or manage system variances such as intermittent availability of the network. Many industrial systems use the same components, such as mixers, pumps, tanks and fans. However, industrial systems that were previously available did not have a way to use data from components that could be used for a different process or that might be unavailable because of competitive concerns. Additionally, previous industrial systems did not integrate data from off-set systems into the sensor planning and execution in real-time.
