How does it work?

IoT Box: The IoT box is available for many of our vacuum pumps. It constantly monitors process state and vacuum pump conditions (e.g. ambient temperature, oil temperature, etc.).
Condition monitoring and data interpretation: The IoT dashboard provides all collected performance data 24/7. The data is interpreted, and performance trends are shown. To optimize your production, Busch is providing a summarizing report as well as recommendations for more efficient operation.
