OH&S SafetyPod: Connecting Dust Collection and Compliance with IoT Remote Monitoring

Listen in as Editor Sydny Shepard and Donaldson's Brent Nelson chat about the adoption of IoT in industrial facilities as well as its specific application with dust collectors.

I am so excited to be bringing you a new feature episode of the podcast all about the internet of things. I know that we have talked about a lot of different technologies on the podcast, but this is the first where we really dive deep into the connectedness IoT brings to our industrial facilities.

I had the pleasure of talking with Brent Nelson, the Global Product Manager for the Connected Solutions division at Donaldson Company. Brent is a specialist in wireless communication products for machine-to-machine and IoT applications and he had the most interesting things to say about the adoption of IoT in industrial facilities as well as its specific application with dust collectors.

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
