Power Reliability, the Internet of Things, and Harsh Industrial Environments

In our ever-connected world with the Internet of Things (IoT), reliable electrical power keeps our world communicating, electronics working, and critical industrial systems operating 24/7. This necessary level of power protection is assured with industrial-grade uninterruptible power supplies (industrial UPS). Increased Complexity Puts Demands on Reliability As the IoT rapidly takes hold, many innovative applications are leaping ahead, bringing added complexity. Automation systems have now become as computerized and complex as any other industry system. Consequently, production costs have been reduced while operational safety levels have increased. Networked communications have centralized automated process management, further reducing costs. As a result of this networking, the subsystems controlling the individual automated processes have also become objects on the IoT. T...
