SteamIQ is the most advanced ultrasonic steam trap monitoring system available. Ultra-long range, simple to install, network independent and with a cloud dashboard platform that can stand alone or work with your cloud.
It's pretty simple.
No. SteamIQ monitors communicate with a gateway utilizing LoRaWAN™. This IoT radio protocol permits incredible range, up to 60 miles line-of-sight. However, in a building or plant the range is typically 1000’ in heavy industrial facilities. It can traverse multiple concrete walls, floors even hit subterranean steam vaults. Depending on the facility we can suggest indoor gateways or IP67 outdoor gateways with mast antenna for superior coverage.
All gateways are configured with a cellular modem so they backhaul the data from the monitors directly to our network server via a 3G/4G connection. This means SteamIQ is completely independent of your network and only requires a 120V outlet for gateway power. Simply put, LoRaWAN™ means no need for networking, IT, wires, your WiFi, Ethernet or configuration. It’s as simple as plugging in a power cord.
Yes, but a repair plan is integral.
By knowing when traps have failed, SteamIQ gives you the tools to get them repaired quickly. No longer will you need to stare at that vent pipe billowing steam outside a building or burning up condensate pumps. SteamIQ means you don’t need to wait for a yearly survey or perform manual testing. Steam and therms are expensive, ensure your dollars go towards efficiency by installing the most advanced steam trap monitoring system ever.
SteamIQ works great using our standalone cloud dashboard and it’s what we recommend for most facilities. But we can also push data from our cloud to yours with a REST API. If your facility requires more advanced containerized solutions, please contact us to discuss.
