Assets are usually customer connected systems either attended or unattended, local or remote. Measuring asset data is usually accomplished by means of connecting the asset to an edge connected device, and various interfaces are usually encountered when doing so, an example of some of these are:

  • Analogue Inputs
  • Digital Inputs
  • SDI-12
  • I2C
  • 1-wire
  • Serial (RS232/RS422/RS485) ports to remote terminal units (RTU) or serially connected asset
  • Ethernet ports to measuring or control equipment
  • Various sensors (temperature, humidity, shock, vibration, pH, pressure, etc...)
