The insights are delivered in real-time via the Shell Remote Sense website and email alerts, and can be integrated with existing monitoring and telemetry systems via API connections.

Shell Remote Sense differs from traditional lab-based oil analysis, such as Shell LubeAnalyst, in that the oil is continuously monitored, allowing you to detect potential problems early and take corrective actions before they cause damage to your equipment.

Industry 4.0 is the new normal. Our customers use Shell Remote Sense to expand their Industrial Internet of Things (Industrial IoT) footprint.

*Remote Sense is available in select markets and sectors. For any requests please contact your Shell representative.
