The Benefits of Remote Monitoring of Refrigeration

Supplier: Wave Industries By: Ian Schmahmann
07 September, 2018

If you store food, either frozen or cold, it is critical to know the disposition of your food at all times.

If you store food, either frozen or cold, some of your most important considerations are

  • Making sure your food temperatures are maintained at all times.
  • Maintaining your refrigeration equipment reliability
  • Ensuring refrigerant gas safety and preventing gas leaks
  • Optimising your refrigeration plant energy efficiency.
 You may have your own on-site maintenance employees or you may have a service agreement with refrigeration contractors.  In either case the ability to view, analyse and control what is happening with your refrigeration plant and your food products in real time is critical to your bottom line. Product losses, plant breakdowns, gas leaks and energy inefficiency will severely impact on profitability.

The ability to remotely monitor your cool rooms, freezers, the products contained therein and the associated refrigeration equipment, will inevitably result in improved efficiency and lower running costs. The Hawk-Eye 800 was developed to provide not only the ability to view the real time plant data locally or remotely, but also to control the plant if desired. Its remote access capability really makes it possible to securely monitor and control the plant from anywhere just as though you were on site. Examples of remote control or adjustment would be: change a set-point, increase a time delay, update user information, manually control a valve or pump

Both the end user and the maintenance team will measurably benefit from the remote capabilities of the Hawk-Eye 800 once installed. Its user friendly layout, intuitive operation, easy to read dashboard, real time trending, intelligent messaging and scheduled reporting all combine to provide a cost effective yet comprehensive solution that takes remote monitoring and controlling to a new level.

  • End user can make adjustments to the plant remotely.

Benefits for the Maintenance Contractor

  • Immediate notification of alarms by email (or sms using email to sms service)
  • Remote login allows the contractor to analyse the situation with the same information as though he were on site.
  • The maintenance contractor can now prioritise his work based upon logging in to the various sites where he has had notification of alarms
  • The maintenance contractor can plan to service equipment as soon as he sees some change in performance, well before there is a breakdown.
  • Plant emergency call-outs to see what is happening on site are virtually eliminated with the ability to view the information remotely
