Across many industrial industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, oil and gas, and more, monitoring machines and functions is a critical function. If a machine in a hospital goes down without warning, patients can die; if a temperature monitor at an oil refinery fails, it can be detrimental to the industry as a whole. All of these pieces and machines require diligent observation and monitoring, but to do that with humans is nearly impossible. Thanks to the Internet of Things (IOT) used in industrial sectors, small sensors can do the heavy lifting, sending back alerts and signals if anything is amiss.
National Control Devices (NCD) is an expert in industrial monitoring and control. As the company, which has been around since 1995, develops sensors and solutions to common problems across many industries, it reduces errors and risks, in the end saving money and time. NCD sets itself apart from other competitors within each sector by offering long-range sensors with exceptional battery life and security features. Additionally, NCD gives the clients all the data that comes from the sensors at no additional cost; they simply purchase the hardware and the analytical insights are theirs forever.
It takes a special group of leaders to propel an organization to the top in this cutting-edge field, but with Anil Bhaskar, CEO and Director of Engineering, leading the charge, NCD has made impressive advances. Today, it is known as the market leader in the United States and a propeller of the Industrial Revolution 4.0. The ecosystem of wireless IOT sensors built by NCD can be customized and automated to fit each client’s needs, because in sectors this important, there is never a one-size-fits-all.
With Anil Bhaskar’s leadership, NCD experiences yearly growth of 30% and continues to launch new product lines to serve its customers. Singlehandedly, Bhaskar has designed over 500 products during his time at NCD. In total, the organization serves over 4,000 clients each year, constantly growing and expanding its product lines, with 10 new products launched in a recent 6-month period. All of NCD’s sensors and IOT components are made within the USA and manufactured in-house, ensuring that quality is never compromised at any step in the production process.
Bhaskar’s background is centered around engineering; he graduated from the prestigious Chandigarh University in 2013 with a degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, then went on to work as a design engineer at Lofru Technologies for 1.5 years. In 2014, Bhaskar was hired by NCD as a Senior Electronic Design Engineer. For 4 years, he learned the ins and outs of the business, established himself as a technical leader and a business leader, and was named Chief Technology Officer in 2018.
Now, as the CEO and Director of Engineering, Bhaskar leads cross-functional teams across 3 different countries and continues to expand NCD’s product offerings. He’s a natural problem-solver that could do all the technical work himself, but now leads impressive engineering teams and the business as a whole. NCD will continue to shape the industrial IOT space by developing IoT gas sensors and LTE-powered sensors. With expansion at the forefront of Anil’s strategy, he will oversee the hiring of more engineers and the construction of a new production facility.
Bhaskar’s story is one of becoming an expert from the ground up. His career moved quickly thanks to his unique skills and leadership capabilities, and with the growth in digital tools, NCD’s offerings will continue to revolutionize the industrial sector. Next time you buy gas, visit a hospital, or purchase a manufactured product, it’s likely that you’ll have Bhaskar to thank for the quality of your experience.
