Fluid handling specialist Cole-Parmer says it is bringing the Internet of Things (IoT) to pump applications, providing pump operators with the ability to remotely control and monitor peristaltic pumps via the internet.

The firm’s MasterflexLive is said to be a secure, Cloud-based platform for controlling and monitoring its peristaltic pumps via a PC, tablet or smartphone. Pump operators can monitor and adjust critical processes running 24/7 from anywhere with a data connection. This technology, claimed to be a first-of-its-kind for peristaltic pumps, provides real-time control of all pump parameters, including speed, flow rate, dispense volume, and more. Push notifications provide alerts for operating conditions and error messages. “Hands-free” operation allows control of pumps operating inside hard to reach locations.
