Much has been written about the Internet of Things’ (IoT) potential to deliver process and operational efficiencies into a variety of engineering applications. But those seeking to design, integrate and apply new IoT solutions are often restricted or challenged by the requirement to source essential components from a variety of suppliers, risking lengthy testing periods to ensure compatibility.
APC Technology Group has launched APC Smartwave to solve this problem, reducing the time needed to research and build effective IoT solutions. APC Smartwave provides a comprehensive range of IoT and Cleantech products from a single source. It is not restricted to a single product range or brand.
In fact, APC Smartwave is continually testing and introducing new-to-market products from established and emerging components suppliers worldwide. This ensures IoT systems designers and integrators have the widest choice of compatible components available with which to build their systems to meet their specific objectives.
To help IoT and Cleantech systems engineers select the right product and optimise performance, APC Smartwave doesn’t just supply components. The team works closely with OEMs and system designers and integrators to develop smart engineering solutions that are tailored to a customer’s needs and goals.
Working collaboratively, APC Smartwave technical specialists will work with customer teams to identify the best component combinations, technologies and processes, providing engineer-to-engineer technical expertise and design-in support.
Commenting on the launch of APC Smartwave, Martin Kingston, general manager, said: “Advanced Power Components is an established supplier of innovative electronic components with more than three decades’ experience of sourcing, supplying and working with large blue chip organisations to design in dynamic electronic solutions. More than that, the group has developed a broad product supply-base and an unsurpassed technical expertise in component integration.
“We’re bringing all of this expertise to the fast evolving IoT sector, which makes us an ideal partner for those organisations developing and instigating innovative IoT-based programmes,” he said.
“Unlike many other IoT product providers, we’re not restricted to a single solution. Instead our focus is on providing engineering support to identify and build in the best component solution.
“Our engineers have a full understanding of how IoT systems work, what they can achieve today and what is possible tomorrow. The service they provide is based on design and system development, not purely product supply,” he said.
