SENSE™ IoT by Penbro Kelnick – Revolutionising power management in mission-critical applications

 ·7 Feb 2024

Penbro Kelnick is a leading South African supplier of specialised electrical products and has been making significant contributions to the railway, telecommunications, utilities, and mining sectors since the early 1950s.

Known for its extensive range of tailor-made solutions, the company has leveraged its backup power management expertise to expand into the exciting realm of Internet of Things (IoT) products for mission-critical applications.

It has developed SENSE™ IoT – a cutting-edge platform that meets the need for effective power management in today’s fast-paced industrial landscape.

We detail the key features and benefits of SENSE™ IoT below.

Tailored for mission-critical applications

SENSE™ IoT is not a one-size-fits-all solution. It is specifically engineered for mission-critical applications where downtime is not an option and efficiency is a must.

Specifically engineered for environments where downtime is non-negotiable and efficiency is paramount, its applications span challenging industrial sectors like petrochemical production, power generation, automotive, and mining.

Furthermore, SENSE™ IoT extends its adaptability to environments where asset preservation is crucial, ranging from microbiological and communicable disease labs to data centers and banks.

In these varied settings, SENSE™ IoT ensures operational continuity and safeguards sensitive assets through its precision and reliability.

With sensors strategically deployed, SENSE™ IoT provides valuable data on power consumption, temperature, and critical metrics. The platform’s robust analytics then translate this raw data into actionable insights.

Whether it’s identifying energy-draining equipment or spotting trends in machine performance, the data you gather is a roadmap to operational excellence.

Revolutionizing the African Industrial IoT market and beyond, we empower customers with cutting-edge solutions, setting a global standard for innovation and service excellence”, says Felice Massaro, Managing Director of Penbro Kelnick.

Reduce downtime with cloud-based analytics

SENSE™ IoT is supported by a strong back-end cloud platform, making data, visualizations, and alarms available remotely.

This ensures that your team can make informed decisions, whether they’re on-site or halfway around the world.

Furthermore, the platform being based in the cloud means that data accessibility downtime is greatly reduced.

Downtime reductions are extended to your machinery too , too, as SENSE™ IoT gives you complete visibility into the health of each machine and system.

By proving enough data to predict failures before they happen, SENSE™ IoT allows for preventive measures, ensuring that your operations run smoothly 24/7.

Energy efficiency – good for business, good for the planet

Reducing power consumption is not just about cutting costs; it’s also about reducing your carbon footprint.

SENSE™ IoT helps you achieve both by optimizing your energy use – benefiting your bottom line and the environment.


SENSE™ IoT is more than just a platform – it’s a paradigm shift in how we think about industrial power management and maintenance.

With its monitoring capabilities, cloud-backed support, and focus on mission-critical applications, it sets a new standard for operational efficiency and sustainability.
