Internet of Things - IoT

Posted on April 5, 2016

Internet - Connected to Life

IoT, IIoT, etc.; a fascinating revolution in the world of industrial data accessibility and knowledge. 


An explosion of 'bandwagon riders' are integrating nearly every device, system and communication method with nearly every byte of available information. 

Knowledge - immediate knowledge - is power and confidence.  Or is it?? 


Certainly this IoT tidal-wave will enable access to more information than ever before so assessments, analysis and decisions can be implemented immediately with the results delivered to your smart phone for instant feedback.  This is truly amazing! 


Lots of Data

You may have heard the same phrase that I recall from my days of old when card stacks were used to program computers, (yep, that was a long time ago)

"Garbage in - Garbage out"

The Burns mantra related to this transformational trend, IoT, is "Confidence in - Confidence out".  The team at Burns Engineering is truly energized by the IoT juggernaut that is happening in the world.   We are humbled and ecstatic about our critical contribution to IoT.  All the data in the world, and the process industry can generate A LOT of data, is only as valuable as the level of confidence in the sources of the ‘Data’. 


It has always been core to the Burns Mission [To ensure temperature measurement confidence] as well as our Vision  [Make a difference through Temperature Measurement Expertise] to provide the most appropriate sensor and guidance on installation to achieve a measurement that truly represents the actual process being measured. (Available Technical Papers)  Burns Engineering is  ready for the IoT, IIoT, PIoT (personal), xIoT (TBD), and every other variant.  We promise to stay committed to ensuring that the temperature data provided through our sensors is data the IoT oriented process engineers can take confident action on and trust the results.


Here are a couple of articles recently in the swirl that provide an interesting look at the IoT phenomenon.
