Are you bursting with brilliant ideas for optimising your operations with sensor data?
As the leading onboard wireless connectivity provider, we take seriously our responsibility to make the sensor data collected across vessels. Our Solutions are easily accessible to all stakeholders securely and conveniently. This is where the importance of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) comes in.
By leveraging the power of APIs, we can ensure that data is transmitted seamlessly and efficiently. This allows stakeholders to make informed decisions and take action in real-time. At Scandinavian Reach Technologies AS, we are committed to driving innovation and providing the best possible service to our clients. APIs are a crucial component of that commitment.
At Scandinavian Reach Technologies AS, we take care of the complex task of data access and distribution in steel environments for consumption both on-premise and in the cloud – so that our customers can focus on managing their assets without any interruptions. We understand that managing data in challenging environments such as these can be daunting, and that’s why our team of experts are dedicated to providing seamless data access and distribution solutions that meet the specific needs of our clients. With our advanced technology and in-depth industry knowledge, we ensure that our clients’ sensor data is secure, accessible, and distributed efficiently.”Tom Hagesæther, CTO, ScanReach
Our REST API and GraphQL interfaces simplify integrating your sensor data with your existing applications. It ensures seamless integration of your vessels’ real-time data with 3rd party software and systems. ScanReach can accelerate the implementation by providing easy wireless communication in steel environments, even when retrofitting industrial maritime sensors, such as Bluetooth or Modbus-based.
As the shipping industry gets increasingly competitive, the time wasted must be kept to an absolute minimum. Sending your crew to monitor sensor data readings is inefficient and includes risky traversal.
Instant data monitoring and sensor alarms
Our graphical user interface (GUI) will provide instant and live data. The environmental sensors deliver data through our onboard wireless connectivity (OWC) solution. Sensor alarms can be set with desired thresholds stated.
Data access powered by the cloud and API
Data stored in ScanReach Cloud will also be made available for consumption by third parties or external systems using Application Programming Interfaces (API). The complete end-to-end solution. Contact us to build a fully API-based integration with your own UI.

REST (Representational State Transfer) is a widely used architectural style for building web APIs. It offers several benefits to businesses, including:
REST APIs can be easily scaled up to handle large requests. This can be particularly beneficial for businesses with rapidly growing user bases, as they can add more servers to handle increased traffic.
REST APIs can be accessed by any client that can request HTTP, regardless of the platform or programming language used. This can help businesses to reach a wider audience and ensure compatibility with different devices and operating systems.
- Reduced Coupling REST APIs provide a clear separation between the client and server, which reduces coupling between the two. This means that changes to one side will not affect the other, making it easier to make updates or changes to the API without breaking client applications.
REST APIs can be secured using standard protocols such as OAuth or JSON Web Tokens (JWTs). This can help businesses to protect their data and ensure that only authorized clients can access the API.
- Easy Caching
REST APIs can be easily cached, improving performance and reducing the server load. This can be particularly useful for businesses that serve large volumes of data or have a large user base.
- Simplified Integration
REST APIs use standard HTTP methods (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE), making it easy for developers to integrate the API into their applications. This can help businesses to build partnerships with other organizations and expand their reach.
Overall, REST APIs offer several benefits for your integration, including scalability, platform independence, reduced coupling, security, easy caching, and simplified integration.
Using the ScanReach REST API, you can build your application using robust and reliable sensor data collection.
GraphQL is a query language and server-side runtime for application programming interfaces (APIs) that prioritizes giving clients precisely the data they request and no more. GraphQL is designed to make APIs fast, flexible, and developer friendly.
GraphQL is an alternate option to build APIs in REST. Facebook developed it as an internal technology for their versatile applications and later publicly released it as open-source. Since then, the software development community has utilized it as one of the favourite technology stacks for developing web services. Benefits:
- Increased Efficiency
GraphQL allows businesses to retrieve only the needed data, reducing the amount of data transferred over the network. This reduces the load on the server and increases the speed of data transfer, resulting in a more efficient system overall.
With GraphQL, businesses can request any combination of data they need from the API, regardless of how it is structured. This means they can easily get the exact data they need without relying on multiple API calls or restructuring data on the backend.
- Improved Developer Productivity
GraphQL provides a clear and consistent way to access data, which can reduce the time and effort required to build and maintain APIs. This can lead to faster development cycles, translating into business cost savings.
- Better User Experience
By reducing the amount of data transferred over the network, GraphQL can improve the performance of applications and provide a smoother user experience. This can help businesses to retain users and increase customer satisfaction.
- Enhanced API Versioning
GraphQL supports the versioning of APIs, allowing Scandinavian Reach Technologies to introduce changes and new features without breaking existing clients. This will enable users to maintain backward compatibility, which can be critical for maintaining a large and diverse user base.
GraphQL can help you build more efficient, flexible, and user-friendly applications while improving your in-house developer productivity and reducing costs.

Choose ScanReach for real-time IoT data onboard ships.
Real-time data refers to information collected and processed immediately as events or changes occur, and the results are available almost instantly. Real-time data is time-sensitive and is used to provide up-to-the-minute information about a particular system or process. This data is often used in situations where prompt decision-making is critical.
Real-time data is characterized by its fast response time, high accuracy, and high frequency of updates. It is usually collected using sensors, cameras, or other monitoring devices that transmit data continuously and automatically.
The data is then processed in real-time using sophisticated algorithms and analytics tools that can identify patterns, trends, or anomalies in the data and generate actionable insights that can be used to optimize processes, detect problems, or make informed decisions.
With Scandinavian Reach Technologies, sensor data is delivered approximately every 20 seconds and is ready for local processing in under a minute. This estimated timeframe is also valid for onshore consumption. However, external cloud infrastructure may add delays due to potential issues with connectivity or latency.
