Applications

The NodeX IoT platform from Recon Electronics enable clients to measure and digitize almost any parameter. The NodeX devices can capture and digitize any measurement and transmit them to client dashboards. Node devices, in essence provides, fitness trackers to machines.

Old Machine + Node Device = Rapid Digitization = Data = Increased Value

Industrial machines, big or small, are expensive. In most cases, machines are old and incapable of increasing effeciency and output. These machines can be retrofitted with Node devices and sensors, to bring them into the new industrial age. This enables predictive maintenance, reducing downtime while increasing productivity. With a Node device a new lease of life can be added to an old machine and an increase the return on investment can be realized.
