WiFi AC Current Monitor for Azure®
NCD set out to build the world’s best WiFi AC Current Monitor for Microsoft® Azure®. In doing so, NCD now incorporates a precision Split Core AC Current Monitoring Sensor with WiFi communications directly to Azure®. This current monitor makes it easy to monitor AC current and receive alerts when the AC current value exceeds the preset limits.
NCD’s WiFi AC Current Monitor samples current at a high data rate and calculates the RMS value. Immediately after, the data is transmitted to the Azure cloud. Once connected to Azure, the AC current data can be streamed and monitored via WiFi.
This IoT WiFi AC Current Monitor for Azure® was developed to work with the Microsoft® Azure® Cloud. As one of the world’s most popular IoT platforms, Azure® is an essential tool for monitoring NCD wireless sensor devices.
When it comes to AC current monitoring, nothing compares to the ease of use, low price, high accuracy, operational temperature range, or security features offered at NCD. Note that this device will need to be externally powered and is capable of using a 6-32VDC power supply.
To begin, access the product setup guide under resources to learn how to use Azure® and NCD’s WiFi AC Current Monitor in conjunction.
Monitor AC Current with Microsoft® Azure® Cloud Shell
Microsoft® Azure® is a IoT cloud computing platform that allows for effortless data streaming through a built in cloud shell feature.
Cloud shell is used for data streaming in an easy to read format. Furthermore, aspects of sensor data and how it is received is customizable in the Device Twin section.
A user friendly guide on how to setup NCD’s WiFi AC Current Monitor is provided under the Resources Tab. This guide will cover how to setup the sensor and use the basic testing function on Azure®. Azure has more to offer so explore the IoT platform and learn how to creatively visualize sensor data.
NCD’s WiFi AC Current Monitor for Azure® automatically reports AC Current data samples straight to the Azure® cloud. For many industries, IoT sensors with direct access to cloud platforms bring tremendous value at low installation costs with no hidden 3rd party fees or monthly services outside of the Azure platform.
Web Interface for Sensor Configuration
Upon connecting to the WiFi Sensor for use with Azure®, a Web Interface will automatically appear on screen. This Web Interface is where the settings can be configured for the sensor. Settings such as preferred WiFi Network, Passwords, Device to Cloud Topic, and Azure Account Credentials are found here.
