The paper explores the optimization of the jaggery manufacturing process through an Industrial IoT-based system. Employing a sophisticated Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), widely utilized in industrial environments, and a Node MCU System for Real-Time monitoring and controlling, the study aims to elevate operational efficiency. In this context, the PLC automates the jaggery manufacturing process by regulating inputs to the VFD. The VFD, employing the V/f method for speed control with constant flux, dynamically adjusts inputs to the induction motor interlocking with sensors in process, resulting in optimized jaggery production. In this context, the PLC plays a pivotal role in automating the jaggery manufacturing process by precisely regulating inputs to the VFD. This dynamic adjustment leads to a finely tuned and optimized jaggery production process, demonstrating the potential for increased efficiency and productivity in the industry.
