Internet of Things is used across many industries like Manufacturing, logistics, oil and gas, aviation etc. and in use cases which belongs to the industries.
An IoT System includes sensors which helps to sense the data and can communicate with the other sensors. Main motive of connected things has made sure that industries are able to work smartly along with huge amount of data that is being collected by the sensors. The industrial IoT solutions are developed by taking huge data into consideration.

Some of the Sensors Used in IoT Solutions:

1.Infrared sensors:
It is used to detect presence of human. Previously this was used only for the Military Applications but over the years, IR Sensors had been integrated with Industrial IoT Solution.
As IR sensors can easily detect heat that’s why they are deployed in the industries like healthcare, electronics, chemical etc. Few of IoT IR sensors used in industries includes Murata, Melexis MLX90614, Intersil ISL29021.

2.Temperature sensors:
This is one of most used sensors in Industrial IoT solutions. It mainly used in applications where temperature monitoring is the important factor.
Industries like biotechnology, pharmaceutical used this sensor to measure temperature parameter. LM35, Environ data TA40 series are few temperature sensors used in industry.

3.Proximity sensors:
This sensor mostly used to measure distance between itself and nearest object. They are commonly used in car bumpers to give an alert in case of any collision is going to happen.
It has an application in retail industry to guide customer regarding any discounts of the day when person walks near that particular product.

4.Smoke sensors:
Smoke sensors have a huge impact in industries like construction sites, industrial units where the gas leakage chances are more.
When Smoke Sensors are combined with IoT Solution, then even slight leakage of gas or fire will be reported to the concern team and in this way disaster can be avoid.

5.Piezo sensors:
These sensors are used to measure pressure. If these sensors are integrated with IoT solution it can send the data related to the pressure changes.
By using these sensors we can measure pressure in the equipments like boiler, water systems etc. Environ data BP 10 series is one of the used sensor in industrial applications.

It is being possible to automate your industrial operations using industrial IoT Solutions.
