BTG launches SMART Monitoring as its first Industry 4.0 solution

BTG is launching today SMART Monitoring, it’s first Industry 4.0 solution which permits to get real-time performance information on all BTG assets in a pulp and paper mill.

With SMART Monitoring, collaboration is accelerated as traditional time and distance barriers are removed. Productivity is increased thanks to the better data insights. Eventually tangible benefits are experienced with significant yearly savings.

SMART Monitoring is based in bCONNECTTM, the BTG’s gateway to the benefits of industry 4.0.  Built around the Microsoft Azure platform, bCONNECTTM connects BTG process instrumentation into a cloud infrastructure via specially developed BTG edge hardware.

Transitioning a mill to SMART Monitoring service is easy, fast and efficient. SMART Monitoring comes as an add-on to an existing BTG sustainability contract, as a monthly subscription fee.
