Does this require Omega Cloud to work?
While recommended, the system does not require Omega Cloud to work. Data can be stored on a local PC, using OEG (Omega Enterprise Gateway) software from where it can also be integrated with a data warehouse, business intelligence system or other enterprise data management solution.
What is Modbus?
Modbus is a standard data communications protocol used to connect industrial electronic devices.
Do I have to use Omega sensors?
No. The system is compatible with any thermocouple (TC) or resistance temperature detector (RTD) sensor and all sensors with standard 4 to 20 mA signaling. We offer a wide selection of rugged smart probes, from non-contact IR sensors to a full range of sensor types including temperature, humidity, process, RTD, thermocouple, pulse and more. When in doubt we recommend you ask our experts and we’ll be happy to verify connectivity of any probe.
Where is my data stored?
Data is logged on the sensor and stored either on the cloud (if you select Omega Cloud service) or you can store on a local PC; if stored locally that data can also be integrated with a data warehouse, business intelligence system or other enterprise data management solution.
Why do I need to see sensor data in dashboards/reports?
Discreet sensor readings are only a snapshot. Tracking data over time and comparing multiple measurement types (like temperature + humidity) provides a holistic view of the performance of your system. Data visualization offers a convenient way of turning measurements to insights that help you do your job.
