KLATU’S latest Wi-Fi sensor platform provides low-cost connectivity with TRAXX™, a powerful cloud-based predictive failure analytics platform for monitoring the real-time status, health and energy efficiency of refrigeration and incubation equipment. KLATU Networks, Inc. has launched PiPer, a new low-cost multi-probe Wi-Fi sensor device called a Mote, which connects mission critical cold-storage and incubation equipment with TRAXX, KLATU's patented, cloud- based predictive failure analytics system. With payback of less than three years, the PiPer platform is a new tool enabling the transformation from old school Fail-and-Fix set-point monitoring, to modern Predict-and-Prevent™ maintenance practices.
PiPer is a proven device that enables proactive management of mission critical assets – extending service life, reducing repair costs, predicting failures, and ultimately avoiding catastrophes. PiPer Motes are low cost, wireless sensor devices that connect lab equipment to TRAXX/Cloud™, a powerful analytical platform for predictive and real-time monitoring.
PiPer transforms a Raspberry Pi into an IoT multi-probe sensor device with the power of a desktop computer by the addition of industrial grade USB sensors and KLATU’s TRAXX/OSTM software. Using existing Wi-Fi infrastructure for sensor-to-cloud communications and compatibility that supports WEP/WPA/WPA2 security protocols, KLATU provides the industry’s most reliable system as measured in terms of uptime.
Rick Kriss, KLATU’s Chief Executive Officer, described PiPer as a low-cost option for deploying IoT connectivity across an organization’s equipment, based on the ubiquitous Raspberry Pi. According to Kriss, Raspberry Pi has an installed base of 30 million devices; it is used in thousands of commercial applications and is widely available for easy access to the powerful TRAXX/Cloud.
