E Sentry Connect™ Systems
Intelligent Asset Management
E Sentry Connect™ system unitizes Near Field Communication (NFC) contactless Smart Card technology that allows smart phone devices with NFC to easily access critical data relating to the equipment being inspected and also save up-to-date inspection data directly to your electrical asset.
Meet the E Sentry Connect™ System Intelligent Asset Management
The E Sentry Connect system has been designed to be operated on 2 platforms, a standalone system and a subscription based cloud system allowing historical data back-up and complete access to the current status of all assets utilizing E Sentry Connect tags.
Set Up E Sentry Connect
- Low cost: Readers built into smartphones
- Ease of use: Simple tapping reads the tag
- Low technology risk for businesses
- Low implementation cost
- Simplify Operations
- Automatic saves of the inspectors details and time & date of the inspection
- Supplied as standard on all CAP Series IR windows
How does it work?
- The phone powers the operation, so no batteries are required
- Uses the principle of inductive coupling to transfer information between the tag and phone
- Tag contains memory to store data which can be erased and rewritten as needed.
- Phone “wakes” the tag by proximity
E Sentry Connect Standalone
Allows you to document and access information relating to IR inspection parameters
on Electrical distribution assets. It is a stand alone tag that writes and allows
you to read the last inspection detail completed.
Accessible from any android NFC compatible device
The E Sentry Connect App is free of charge and designed to work with any android based device working on a 4.0 Kit Kat or higher operating system.
Automatically saves the time, date and user information
User data from the NFC device is automatically saved to the E Sentry Connect Tag when recording any new inspection details.
Provides Inspectors with Important Equipment Data
The tag allows for valuable data related to the equipment to be recorded on the tag and available to the operators during the inspection including notes specific to the use of the IR Window, inspection details, Arc Flash Incident Levels, PPE requirements etc.
Records & Saves Inspection Parameters
The tag allows for data such as IR window transmission rates, maximum allowable temperatures, emissivity settings to be saved for the reference of other inspectors using the IR Window.
Records & Saves Inspection Details
The tag contains the inspection details from the previous inspection as well
as a note section that allows the user to make notes relating to their inspection
that may be valuable for the next inspection cycle.
E Sentry Connect Cloud
Allows you to document and access information relating to IR inspection parameters on
Electrical distribution assets. Data is stored on the asset tag directly and backed up to
the cloud for future reference and maintenance trend analysis. Routes can be set and monitored.
Designate and Manage Users
The system administrator sets up users and access rights ensuring that sensitive or critical data is protected and properly managed.
Automatic Data Caching
Functions in areas without internet connection by uploading to the cloud the next time the device obtains internet access.
Trigger and Record Alarm Conditions
Alarms triggered by the E Sentry Connect App are immediately transmitted to the system administrators and designated users to ensure that resources are immediately assigned to bring the asset back online as quickly as possible.
Send and Receive Notifications
Easy communications between the system administrators and inspection staff allows for fast and automatic notifications of required inspections and completed tasks.
Review & Analyze Temperature Trends
All Historical Data from the inspections recorded to the E Sentry Connect Tag are uploaded to the cloud and plotted in trend graphs for future reference. This data can be used by administrators to manage and even predict when assets may require maintenance or to deploy temperature monitoring systems.
Build and Assign Inspection Routes
Assign your employees custom routes while selecting from your entire asset database sorted by location, alarm state and more.
Generate Custom Reports
The system allows for all inspection data to be reviewed and downloaded as a CSV or XLS file for use in reports and setting inspection routes.
The E-Sentry QwikTAG allows users to define information and data fields on any asset type imaginable. Maintenance records can be stored, accessed, and overwritten repeatedly. Users can shape and format the tag to fit their needs, altering it to contain information relative to their personal needs regarding inspections, maintenance, equipment and more. Working between the android app and the tag, users are able to fine tune their maintenance procedures to create their own custom solution on the fly.
