Internet of Things part 5: Rompa and connectivity

2August 2018

It is the latest trend: connecting objects. Countless organisations are already investing into making their products smart. They use the resulting information to e.g. optimise the efficiency of their processes, save energy or improve usability. But what is the best way to go about this? Which technology should you choose? And how can you use this technology so it gives you the exact information you need? In this series of blog articles, we will offer you valuable information and guidelines related to the Internet of Things. This is part 5: Rompa and connectivity.


We live in a new age. A time when everything and everyone is connected and smart devices can communicate with us and each other. This is the age of the Internet of Things. Think of a refrigerator that knows when your milk has expired and automatically orders a new bottle, or a water faucet that automatically detects leaks, shuts off the water supply and then contacts the water company. The developments are moving fast. In 2016, 6.4 billion devices all over the world were connected to the internet. That was 30% more than in 2015. According to the research agency Gartner, this number will grow to more than 20 billion by the year 2020.

Rompa en connectivity
The developments pertaining to connectivity are a core focus for our organisation as well. Whereas Rompa started out as a producer of plastic products with a specialisation in injection moulding and thermoforming, the company has expanded to become a full-service supplier of plastic products with electronic components that are connected to the internet. From products with On/Off and charging features to connected devices that can be monitored via an app; we produce a wide range of devices for both consumers and industrial applications.


SMT-line
Rompa produces all electronics that provide the connectivity in house. This is possible because of our own SMT line (surface-mount technology). Our software engineers ensure that the hardware is controlled by software. In our special ESD room, we can assemble electronic components and plastic products free of static electricity.
