Remote monitoring technology enables businesses to monitor and manage large, dispersed equipment fleets from anywhere. It allows you to remotely track your equipment, measure performance, and receive critical warnings and alerts. The result is maximized equipment uptime and greatly reduced field service labor and overhead costs.

By implementing a remote monitoring system, businesses can benefit from improved visibility into their operations, increased efficiency in maintenance and repair activities, enhanced customer satisfaction through faster response times, lower operational costs, and better asset utilization. Furthermore, a remote monitoring system can reduce downtime by quickly pinpointing problems with equipment before they become more significant.

Selecting the Right Remote Monitoring System

Choosing the ideal telemetry system is pivotal for ensuring seamless integration and optimal results. Consider the following factors when selecting the perfect fit for your business:

  • Wireless data network coverage, cost, and longevity
  • Ease of device installation and activation
  • Hardware power requirements
  • Scalability to accommodate future growth
  • Availability of customer support resources and responsiveness
  • 3rd party access to machine data through software APIs

Additionally, it is important to consider the size of your business and the type of equipment you are looking to monitor.

Implementing Remote Monitoring

Once you have chosen a remote monitoring system for your business, several steps must be taken to set it up and maintain it. Follow these steps to set up and maintain a successful implementation:

  • Hardware installation and connectivity assurance
  • Configuration of software features such as alarms and notifications
  • Comprehensive training for sales and service personnel
  • Regular system testing and performance evaluation
  • Strategic planning for responding to any issues or triggered alarms

Benefits of Eagle Signal’s CT4 SERIES

by Haleigh Rozier | May 22, 2018

Eagle Signal manufactures electronic timer, electromechanical timer, and other devices. Within the electromechanical family is the HQ4 series of percentage timers. Percentage timers are a type of repeat cycle device that is compact and long-lasting. The HQ4 series is a unique timer that can function as an on delay, off delay, interval timer or repeat cycle device. Eagle Signal offers this accurate, economical, enclosed timer for a wide range of applications. Specifically, those where repetitive ON times of a fixed cycle requires adjustability. This series is a panel mounted unit with an exposed dial. The load relays’ seal protects against the environment. The HQ4 proves to be durable in industries such as chemical, feeding, irrigation controls, electric heaters, and motor controls. Recently, Eagle Signal developed an improved version of the HQ4 Series called the Cycl-Time® or CT4 Series.

The CT4 offers improved features including resolution, potentiometer, ease of setting, torque, safety, sealings, and wiring. Also, the Cycl-Time®’s resolution is more defined. For example, the colors of the faceplate offer more contrast for reading the time settings. With 100 ticks around the dial rather than 50, the CT4’s percentage options are more precise than the HQ4. The torque of the Cycl-Time® dial is more resistant to change than before. Once the timer is set, it will not rotate any further without intentional force from the user. These features combine to make the timer more accurate and easier to set. Safety is always the greatest concern when designing any product. The Cycl-Time® has a plastic guard over the terminal block to protect the user’s fingers from exposure to contractors. This percentage timer is ideal for applications environmental factors would usually cause concern. These features provide a longer lasting product and additional safety. The wiring and electrical connections of the HQ4 was also updated for the CT4. It now has four electrical connections, rather than seven, all in a straight line on the back of the body of the timer. As mentioned before, this timer is made to panel mounted. Eagle Signal continues to design the most accurate, economical, and reliable products in the industry. The HQ4 and Cycl-Time® Series are both exceptional devices fit for their specific applications. Cycl-Time® proves to be a respectable replacement option to the HQ4 Series.
