Five good reasons for the DS11 Smart Connector

The digital world is advancing in big steps. One example of this is the DS11 integrated Smart Connector from SCHURTER. The DS11 is a smart power entry module and can be installed in almost any device.

Five good reasons for the DS11 Smart Connector

With the Smart Connector, standard devices can be quickly and easily digitalised and integrated into the IoT (Internet of Things) without time-consuming and cost-intensive in-house development. SCHURTER highlights five advantages of the Smart Connector that can offer great added value.

1. IoT-ready overnight: The Smart Connector is a smart device input connector with WLAN connectivity. By installing the Smart Connector and using the SCHURTER Smart Ecosystem, you have all the functions necessary for an IoT-enabled device. Do without your own IoT development.

2. Detailed data analysis: By recording values such as power consumption, performance and voltage, usage patterns can be identified and device operation optimised. In addition, information can be exchanged via an API interface. For example, the utilisation of the devices can be monitored or preventive maintenance can be planned. Offer your customers customised solutions that optimally meet their needs.

3. Comprehensive SCHURTER Smart Ecosystem: The SCHURTER Smart Ecosystem consists of the Smart Connector, the SCHURTER Cloud, the Smart Dashboard, the Smart App for Apple and Android, and the Smart API. The dashboard and the app offer convenient access to the device data at any time. Among other things, the connected devices can be switched on or off remotely.

4. Simple control with the Smart Dashboard: The Smart Dashboard is the browser-based, visual interface to the SCHURTER Cloud. Devices equipped with a Smart Connector can be controlled, monitored and managed in the dashboard. In addition, the Smart Dashboard is a flexible platform. If required, own individual functions can be programmed or the Smart Dashboard can be connected to the customer's IT infrastructure.

5. New business models: Data collection and analysis through the Smart Connector offer a high added value. New business models can be built on this. The analysis of operating time or usage patterns allow new pay-per-use' payment models that are accurate, reliable and verifiable.
