What can I measure with IoT?

A common question that we are asked at Manx Technology Group is What can you measure with IoT?  To help answer that question, below you will find an extensive list of the sensors that we support.

Using Plug & Sense IoT devices, the data can be transmitted and be stored in a database, Azure, AWS or any other leading cloud platform. From here, the data can be manipulated, analysed and visualised using tools such as Tableau, PowerBI and Qlik.

If the item that you wish to measure or sense is missing – don’t worry – we may be able to incorporate a third-party sensor from another vendor, or a non-IoT sensor using Modbus, serial or 0-20mA interfaces. For more advanced applications or requirements; our own team or our academic and data partners may be able to use scientific literature and research to undertake multivariate statistics and inference analysis to deliver your required outcome.

(We will keep this list updated as new sensors are added)
