Monnit Wins 2019
Manufacturer of the Year Award

IoT leader receives honor from the
Utah Manufacturers Association

The Utah Manufacturers Association (UMA) named Monnit 2019 Manufacturer of the Year! Monnit received the award on November 2nd at UMA’s 114th Annual Awards Banquet.

“The Manufacturer of the Year Award reflects Monnit’s dedication to creating the best Internet of Things devices via our adaptive engineering and market-driven manufacturing processes,” said Brad Walters, Monnit CEO. “It also highlights the skill and commitment of Utah’s workforce, better products—of all types—are made here in Utah.”

Intense Competition

Open to any manufacturer with a significant presence in Utah, competition was intense. In 2018, Forbes ranked Salt Lake City 15 out of 373 metro areas where “manufacturing is thriving.” UMA represents 1,200 manufacturers.

“Manufacturing is the engine that drives the economy in both the United States and in Utah. Producing more than $20 billion in economic output, manufacturing is a significant contributor to the number one diverse economy in the country,” said Todd R. Bingham, UMA president. “Utah manufacturing companies produce the products, food, and items we use every day.”

Know Power, No Surprises:
3-Phase 500 Amp Current Meter

The Check Engine Light™ for power-intensive equipment, the new ALTA® Industrial 3-Phase Current Meter helps prevent power bill surprises and equipment burnout. If something goes wrong, users are alerted via text, email, or call.

An advancement over traditional current meters that store data locally, the new current meter remotely monitors energy consumption and continuously posts this data to the iMonnit online dashboard. This information helps those who routinely start large motors and machines, like air compressors, identify power draw for one machine or trends across multiple machines.

With a simple, three-wire clamping system, the device installs in minutes and monitors maximum, minimum, and average RMS current. The sensor also tracks the per-phase duty cycle and total amp hours from all three phases. Features and functions include:

  • Industrial-rated, water & dust-proof sensor enclosure
  • Display of watt-hour or kilowatt-hour readings online or via Android and iOS apps
  • Data logging for accumulated amp hour readings
  • May be utilized for real-time utility billing
  • Clamp-on current transducers (no rewiring required)

Better budgeting begins with sensors that save cents and sense impending burnout.

Preventive Maintenance for Equipment with iMonnit

Why Your Business (or Building) Needs a Check Engine Light

The check engine light—where you would be without it?

When a check engine light illuminates, you have a chance to protect your vehicle from a failing component, a lack of maintenance, or correct something as simple as a gas cap that was accidentally left off. Can you imagine operating a modern vehicle without this helpful light?

Why should your business or building be any different?

Monnit’s ALTA® Wireless Sensors and iMonnit Software are the Check Engine Light™ for your restaurant, warehouse, greenhouse, or commercial shopping plaza. Use the sensors virtually anywhere to monitor environment, energy usage, or activity. If something starts to go wrong, get an alert via text, email, or call—step in and stop minor issues before they halt production, ruin inventory, or pose a safety risk.

Fix Before Failure

What type of preventive maintenance program does your organization have? How often is your machinery running? Do you know if it’s within spec, or what its power consumption is? Deviations in vibration or temperature, if left unchecked, can cause expensive repairs and downtime. Spiking power usage often preludes failure.

Monnit Wireless Sensors and iMonnit allow you to monitor equipment conditions, optimally schedule maintenance, or take other action to cut failure off at the pass. The Monnit Wireless Sensor Platform can monitor equipment to help you detect and address issues before they become show-stopping problems. And, you can access your data whenever and wherever you are via smartphone app or PC. Work with highly classified information or need to keep all data in-house? Monnit offers several on-premises monitoring options to keep your data on-site.

How Can Your Business Use a Check Engine Light?

Activity Sensors Know when machinery operates or when a specific area is accessed
Temperature Sensors Remotely monitor equipment operating temperatures, cold-storage, or remote locations
Voltage Meters Monitor voltage to HVAC equipment and machinery
AC Current Meters Monitor equipment power draw to detect potential issues
Advanced Vibration Meter Track machine vibrations as part of machine health
G-force Max-Avg. Track motors, assembly lines, or even fences for unusual movement
Average Cost $800–1,000 for a gateway and 4–6 wireless sensors
Typical Setup Time Less than 15 minutes
Battery Life 12+ years

Ensure your equipment is running efficiently with Monnit Wireless Sensors.

Whatever you do, there’s a sensor that can help. See how farmers, machinists, police officers, and fast-food franchisees all rely on Monnit.
