Kirloskar Brothers Ltd (KBL) recently launched an advanced and upgraded version of its IoT-based pump monitoring system, KirloSmart. It is already a first-of-its-kind IoT-based remote pump monitoring system in India. Now, the upgradation will enhance the first mover advantage of the company even more.
At the event, Mr Alok Kirloskar, Member of the Board of Directors at KBL and Managing Director-SPP Pumps Limited, said, “The advanced version of KirloSmart has new additional features like enhanced web application and mobile app with user-friendly next generation UI/UX and easy navigation. This is more interactive and has an enhanced speed. It comes with multiple screen options to show various parameter dials and mimic or process diagrams with sensor data. KirloSmart tracks the overall performance of the pump and notifies the user of any degradation in the efficiency or performance. Also, our team of experts at the back end suggests to customers the correction measures to bring the performance on track. This way, the solution helps to save electricity cost, prevents pump shutdown, and helps to increase the life of pumps.” KBL is a world-class pump manufacturing company with proficiency in engineering and fluid management systems.
KirloSmart is a unique hardware-software technology developed by the Pune-based Kirloskar Brothers Ltd (KBL). Without any manual intervention, users can remotely access, monitor and troubleshoot the pump on a real-time basis. Preventing breakdown, it can even predict and take corrective measures beforehand. This way, it increases the pump’s efficiency and ensures its optimal performance. KirloSmart was being used in-house at the Kirloskarvadi factory since 2010. And in 2016, it was commercially launched.
