Partners Double-Team Smart Thermocouples Solution

TE Wire & Cable, manufacturer of thermocouple wire, and Plataine, provider of Industrial IoT and AI-based optimization software, announce a partnership for Smart Thermocouple solutions. Plataine’s IoT-based AI software tracks and analyzes the location, status and duty cycles of TE Wire & Cable’s thermocouples, enabling thermocouple users to view analytics, receive actionable alerts, insights, and optimized recommendations.


TE Wire thermocouples are connected to Plataine’s software via a simple hardware infrastructure based on RFID tags and engraved barcodes. The software monitors the thermocouples’ location, status, and duty-cycles to provide automated real-time alerts and recommendations to optimize thermocouple calibration, refurbishment, or replacement. The joint solution improves quality compliance, reduces the risk of using thermocouples that are no longer fit for purpose, and eliminates manual tracking processes and production delays. A dedicated web page allows users to plan for efficient thermocouple utilization. For further illumination, visit TE Wire & Cable and Plataine.
