Milpitas, California, Feb. 20, 2019 – Industrial and commercial equipment manufacturers are making the leap to the cloud to give their customers visibility into the operation and performance of their systems. Chromalox, a company that takes pride in providing the best advanced thermal technologies for the world’s toughest industrial heating applications, turned to Sierra Monitor Corporation (SRMC: OTCQB) to enable cloud system connectivity on their Heat Trace solution.

Using SMC’s ProtoAir devices, Chromalox is harnessing the power of the built-in SMC Cloud capabilities along with extensive protocol connectivity. The SMC Cloud provides secure remote connectivity so that industrial facilities are able to run smarter, utilizing real-time device data analytics to drive better decision making and transform the way they do business.

“As consumers, we are accustomed to having access to data and information at our finger tips. This is transforming how manufacturers think about providing data from their equipment,” states Steve Shaw, Marketing VP for Sierra Monitor Corporation. “Want to check on your industrial equipment from your phone, the same way you can check your thermostat or doorbell at home? We’ve got you covered.”

Smart devices are no longer reserved for consumer markets. Chromalox will be the first to present a family of cloud-connected heat trace products delivering temperature management solutions for piping systems, valves, and tanks.

“Sierra Monitor allows us to simplify things across the board with their ProtoAir device. Being able to provide protocol translation and cloud connectivity through one device is incredibly convenient,” says Chris Myers Product Manager, Heat Trace at Chromalox. “Our end goal is to provide basic analytics and predictive maintenance data to our customers – utilizing the SMC Cloud puts us on that path.”
