Imagine a controller so cost-effective it can replace basic equipment controls without significantly increasing manufacturing costs and can even generate new revenue streams. IoTA Forte™ controllers are fast, powerful, 32-bit, RISC-based, ultra-compact, universal automation controllers designed specifically for IoT applications where control, monitoring, remote diagnostics and data analytics are required or beneficial.

 

IoTA Forte™ controllers are small (about the size of your phone) and have unprecedented I/O density (50+), and the lowest cost per I/O of any controller in their class.  This makes them extremely cost-effective to add sensors to equipment that are beyond basic controls.  Consider the benefits enhanced remote diagnostics, system reliability, operational efficiency, improved customer service and loyalty that can come from adding a few low-cost sensors to your equipment (e.g. temperature, pressure, dp, level, reed switches, position, stress, etc.).  

 

Now imagine further monetizing these upgrades by generating new revenue streams by providing cloud-based technical support and monitoring capabilities. The system can automatically detect issues and dispatch qualified technicians directly while ensuring the right part is on truck before they get there. Controllers can work autonomously without the internet or in concert with each other in a peer-to-peer network, optimizing the interaction between all machines.
