Data collection and analytics in today’s markets are increasingly important to ensuring efficiency, uptime, and quality. For any industrial manufacturer or data center owner, the ability to predict costly downtime before it happens is critical to maintaining productivity.

Hubbell’s line of intelligent Data Monitoring devices provide data directly at the point of use for analytics while helping to predict potential process changes. Important power and environmental data provided ranges from revenue grade billable metering, voltage, power, and internal device temperature. Hubbell’s Ethernet Gateway gathers data from all data monitoring devices and is the connection point from the wireless to the wired. Data received from all monitoring devices is transferred through a wireless mesh network to the gateway which is then sent to the user’s front-end dashboard for visual and historical analysis. Each gateway can accept up to 150 monitoring devices at a maximum distance of 30 meters from node to node. If there is a line of sight issue between nodes within the network, the device will transmit data to the next closest monitoring node.

Cloud-based or local software packages are available as part of the Hubbell system or any customer supplied data monitoring software can be used. Programmable data thresholds can be set to alert the user when outputs fall outside of the upper or lower parameters. If required, text or email alerts can be sent directly to the responsible designee.

The Hubbell inSIGHT™ Data Monitoring line includes:

  • Pin and sleeve devices – incorporated into standard IEC packaging
  • Ethernet Gateways – gather data from all monitoring devices and transfer to a front-end dashboard for analysis
  • Smart Power Cables - provide quick plug-and-play monitoring directly at point of use
  • Circuit and Environmental Monitors – devices monitor single- and three-phase circuits in pre-configured enclosure kits
  • Software – cloud-based or local software packages available if BMS or DCIM systems are not currently being used

“The new Hubbell line makes it easier for customers to ensure efficiency, uptime, productivity, and quality,” states Mike Williams, Sr. Product Manager for Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems. “With data and analytics now at their fingertips, customers can be confident about the decisions they’re making and adjust systems accordingly to improve overall performance.”
