A new approach to improving the management of fixed and moving assets by using cloud computing and the Internet has been launched by HMS Industrial Systems

This is in response to the growing demand to monitor and control a wide range of applications and equipment safely and securely.

The web-based remote monitoring system, called Netbiter 3, is a comprehensive family of devices and services. Stuart Hannah, business development manager for HMS says: “One of the great things about Netbiter is it can be used to monitor both fixed and mobile assets 24/7.

“Web-based means it’s viable for any number of local or remote devices from a single asset, such as a PLC or Frequency Inverter, to a complete plant or process, and the inclusion of GPS means location based asset management is also available. In the event of a problem you can instantly receive alarm emails or text messages and check online from anywhere on the Internet.”

Netbiter comprises three main elements: the secure online storage, the gateway communication devices, and the online monitoring tools, and because data is both important and confidential HMS takes security as our first priority”, says Hannah.

“We use an online data centre called Netbiter ARGOS which is backed up at two separate locations. Secure remote access is through multi-level passwords from any Internet enabled device, and firewall friendly communications protocols avoid IT issues at the user’s sites.’’
