Logic PD, a product innovation and realisation company for connected devices, has introduced a Wireless Communication Device Blueprint™, a step-by-step application guide for turning legacy equipment into a wireless solution.

Ideally suited for agriculture, medical and industrial applications where equipment and infrastructure is costly to replace, the Blueprint takes OEMs and large operations through the complex process of retrofitting their devices with wireless connectivity. Leveraging Internet of Things (IoT) and connected device experience, Logic PD’s process not only helps companies efficiently retrofit equipment, it also improves operations, increases equipment reliability and identifies new revenue streams.

“As the world becomes increasingly connected, users want their applications to be moved online for ease of use and increased operational efficiency,” said Jason Voiovich, vice president of marketing. “Under pressure, OEMs are often overwhelmed by the proposition of retrofitting their legacy equipment and overlook the upside of adding a renewable revenue stream that comes with networked devices. The Wireless Blueprint guides them through the process and identifies the opportunities.”

A holistic approach to retrofitting legacy equipment, Logic PD’s Blueprint framework guides the process through the examination of pre-identified considerations and requirements that address the technology necessary to create wireless solutions.

“Retrofitting equipment requires more than simply connecting a wireless device to it,” explains Scott Nelson, PhD, chief technology officer and executive vice president. “Beyond the network connection, companies need first need to examine what is being measured and what data needs to be collected. Once that is determined, there are a multitude of decisions that need to be determined – each impacting the next.”

The application guide helps companies evaluate considerations related to sensors and data, network connectivity, power, analytics and security.
