Kingspan Sensor supplies measuring and monitoring solutions to customers in the commercial, industrial, agriculture and domestic markets.

Business Need

Kingspan Sensors most recent innovation is the Watchman Anywhere Pro (WAP). A one-piece oil monitoring solution that checks fuel levels and provides in-depth data that assists with stock management, health & safety compliance and CRC reporting. To work effectively the monitoring devices would need to connect to an outside source – to send regular information to customers. With global ambitions for its monitoring service, the connectivity would need to work anywhere in the world.

Solution

The Vodafone Managed IoT Connectivity Platform enables Kingspan to install the same SIM in every monitoring device, activating the device once it is ‘live’ with a customer – anywhere in the world. At the point of manufacture, the factory captures data from the units, recording the device’s identity code, model and other important data from the modem. The devices (with SIMs installed) are then imported electronically to the Kingspan database. Kingspan engineers can identify any device through the given barcode. Scheduled, customised and exportable reports provide in-depth data on current levels, projected run out dates, usage, fill requirements all of which can assist in calculating energy usage and carbon emissions.
