The Internet of Things
(IoT) is the network of physical objects accessed through the Internet—essentially a "Connected Everything Platform." These objects contain embedded technology to interact with internal states or the external environment. When objects can sense and communicate, it changes how and where decisions are made, and who makes them.
IoT is connecting new places—such as manufacturing floors, energy grids, healthcare facilities, and transportation systems—to the Internet. When an object can represent itself digitally, it can be controlled from anywhere. This connectivity means more data, gathered from more places, with more ways to: increase efficiency, innovate in product development, increase asset utilization, enhance the customer experience, streamline the supply chain, and improve safety and security.
Hitachi Consulting helps apply IoT solutions to drive business value, ultimately allowing companies to be IoT innovators and become an "Enterprise of Things." Companies can learn more about Hitachi Consulting's products, solutions and expertise and how they leverage the diverse product portfolio of Hitachi to help enterprises quickly get value out of IoT capabilities.
From our SmartMirror and DoorShow to our digital service offerings like RemoteMonitoring and ActionBoard, the possibilities are almost limitless with connected elevators, escalators, and moving walks.
Digital Media Services
Turning your units into communication platforms
IoT makes it possible to monetize mobility spaces in completely new ways. Our digital media services make it possible to turn elevators into powerful communication platforms. They provide new information, communication, and entertainment channels for your passengers, tenants and customers. With one back-end solution to manage all channels.
The smart monitoring of elevators and escalators
Digital services complement maintenance service contracts, adapting to your specific needs and requirements. The range of services starts with connectivity and ends with the management of your installations from elevators to escalators.
With the proper sensor to supply critical operating information, a machine operates in a safer condition for both the machine as well as the personnel operating the machine.
Various machine operating conditions concerning temperature extremes, magnetic fields, vibration range, frequency range, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electrostatic discharge (ESD) conditions and the required signal quality necessitate the need for a variety of sensors.
Sensor Bearing Units
SKF sensor bearing units are used to monitor accurately the status of rotating or linear components and are: compact, robust and reliable, and simple and ready-to-mount.
Sensor-integrated solutions engineered by SKF have been well proven in a variety of industrial and automotive applications, such as electric motors, electric vehicles, road rollers, tractors, forklifts and conveyors.
Typical uses include: motor management, steering, speed and position sensing, and measurement of angular position.
Recent innovations from SKF now enable bearings to communicate their operating conditions in real time, with integrated intelligence including wireless sensors, data acquisition electronics and self-powered solutions.
This technology, called SKF Insight, enables operators to see how dynamic operating conditions are affecting bearing health and machine condition in real time. Operators can use this information to adjust operating conditions or make automated interventions, such as lubrication. This can help to prevent bearing damage before it occurs, effectively extending the life of the bearing. Ultimately, this means better maintenance planning and helps to avoid costly unplanned stoppages.
