Leviton’s Inform Technology is an innovative conditioning-monitoring technology that enables Leviton devices to provide real-time data to end-users, improving safety, efficiency, and productivity. The technology is seamlessly integrated into Leviton’s industrial switches, with sensors embedded into the devices that monitor critical device data. This data can be viewed on the device via LEDs, or remotely 24/7 via mobile or desktop devices, making it easier for end-users to monitor the performance of their devices.
One of the major benefits of Inform Technology is its flexibility in integration with other predictive maintenance solutions. Leviton Industrial switches with Inform Technology are more than just a standalone solution; they can easily be integrated into an existing automation system to provide a complete IoT solution for smart manufacturing. This makes it easier for end-users to have a comprehensive view of their entire facility, improving efficiency and reducing maintenance costs.
Inform Technology also helps to improve safety by providing real-time data on the performance of devices. This can prevent costly damage caused by liquid intrusion, which can be identified before it causes any significant harm. With Inform Technology, end-users can understand what’s going on inside their devices without having to open them, improving troubleshooting, response time, safety, and productivity.
In addition, Inform Technology provides both remote and local monitoring capabilities. Remote monitoring enables end-users to view device data from anywhere, 24/7, using the Inform app or existing software systems. This can help identify disturbances in real-time that can impact machine performance, minimizing unplanned downtime by monitoring individual line- and load-side voltage values, ground continuity, liquid accumulation due to improper installation or condensation, enclosure temperature and humidity, welded contacts, and more. Local monitoring, on the other hand, allows for quick, safe identification of device status, making it easier to troubleshoot when there is a power problem with connected equipment.
Common applications of Inform Technology include food and beverage processing, industrial/manufacturing, and temporary power. The technology is also designed to withstand any wet and harsh location, with the highest and most comprehensive ratings on the market (IP66, IP67, IP68 & IP69K), making it ideal for use in any environment. The NSF certified sanitary design also makes it trusted for use in food and beverage environments.
Leviton’s Inform Technology are must-have industrial switches, providing real-time data to end-users and improving safety, efficiency, and productivity. With flexible integration capabilities and both remote and local monitoring options, Inform Technology is a smart investment for any facility looking to optimize their operations and reduce long-term costs.
