Data monitoring is a key process followed by almost all the manufacturing industries. The status of a machine running in an industry can produce an enormous amount of data that could be analyzed well if recorded in a proper manner at regular intervals. In general, a small scale industry has to employ a person to record the machine status data in a notebook, which has to be analyzed and the performance of the machine and the efficiency of the machine will be calculated manually. Since the data are to be recorded at regular intervals it might be a tiring job for the humans to do. That is why industries look forward to automate the collection of data from the devices which led to the success of IoT devices. This article proposes an idea of a device that can collect information from any device controlled by PLC and store it in the cloud using GPRS or Wi-Fi.
