What is Halton Connect?
Halton Connect is Halton’s IoT (Internet of Things) platform which uses an advanced and easy-to-use cloud-based portal as its core, enabled with a build-in 4G gateway.
Halton Connect enables round-the-clock remote monitoring for Halton kitchen ventilation solutions, allowing access to useful information and data analytics for end-users and Halton IoT team. All information provided by Halton Connect is accessible through a web-based portal.
Halton Connect is an essential factor in maintaining the performance and initial design level of Halton kitchen ventilation solutions throughout their lifecycle. Without Halton Connect, the neglected equipment may eventually lose their performance level. A severe drop in the performance level could lead to several issues, causing an increase in energy usage and cleaning costs, a need for spare parts, hidden and irreversible damage for equipment, or hygiene and fire safety risks. This can easily lead to a decline in profitability.
How does the connectivity of Halton Connect work?
The on-site Halton equipment, for example, a Halton kitchen hood or a M.A.R.V.E.L. demand-based ventilation system, is connected to a cloud-based Halton Connect server via a built-in 4G gateway or a cable connection. All data is stored in the Halton Connect server, which is accessible for customers and the Halton IoT team via a web-based portal.
