PD, a product innovation and realization company for connected
devices, has introduced a Wireless
Communication Device Blueprint™, a step-by-step application guide
for turning legacy equipment into a wireless solution.
Ideally suited for agriculture, medical and industrial applications
where equipment and infrastructure is costly to replace, the Blueprint
takes OEMs and large operations through the complex process of
retrofitting their devices with wireless connectivity. Leveraging
Internet of Things (IoT) and connected device experience, Logic PD's
process not only helps companies efficiently retrofit equipment, it also
improves operations, increases equipment reliability and identifies new
"As the world becomes increasingly connected, users want their
applications to be moved online for ease of use and increased
operational efficiency,"said Jason Voiovich, vice president of
marketing. "Under pressure, OEMs are often overwhelmed by the
proposition of retrofitting their legacy equipment and overlook the
upside of adding a renewable revenue stream that comes with networked
devices. The Wireless Blueprint guides them through the process and
identifies the opportunities."
A holistic approach to retrofitting legacy equipment, Logic PD's
Blueprint framework guides the process through the examination of
pre-identified considerations and requirements that address the
technology necessary to create wireless solutions.
"Retrofitting equipment requires more than simply connecting a wireless
device to it," explains Scott Nelson, PhD, chief technology officer and
executive vice president. "Beyond the network connection, companies need
first need to examine what is being measured and what data needs to be
collected. Once that is determined, there are a multitude of decisions
that need to be determined - each impacting the next."
The application guide helps companies evaluate considerations related to
sensors and data, network connectivity, power, analytics and security.
