Projects

This page provides a small glimpse of the type of projects that we can execute for our customers. Of course, there are hundreds of other projects that are not on this page. Please contact us with your project so we can help you develop it from begging to successful end. 

Energy Sustainability Efficiency - Vutility

Take control of your carbon footprint to meet your sustainability goals, by identifying the drivers of your energy use and cost-effective opportunities to improve efficiency.


Leading ESCO helped their customer realize 90% savings vs. traditional solutions for a light industrial submetering project. Competitive bids ranged from $50-75K+ (~$35-50K for HW + installation costs and margin) Equivalent scope using Vutility HotDrops cost under $3K for HW with significantly lower installation costs. HotDrops install in minutes vs. hours, minimizing high-cost electrician time Key

Takeaway:  Vutility's lower HW and install costs enable partners to increase their win % when bidding on projects, as well as unlock new use cases that can now have justifiable ROIs.

 

 

 

Monnit: Solar Energy Monitoring Project

Climate Change/Global Warming Project - Industrial Shields

 

In the following success story, you will see how customer installed Industrial Shields Open Source Arduino PLCs to monitor 12 mesocosms in the town of New Alesund - on the island of Svabard (Norway) to monitor changes at the North Pole. The study of  polar ecosystems  helps to understand alterations in  climate change.  One of the ways to analyze the environment under controlled conditions is through mesocosms or outdoor  experimental systems.

Smart City - Energy Sustainability Efficiency - Industrial Shields

Public lighting system with Arduino industrial PLC.  
The Smart Light Controller allows full control over the operation and main parameters of the luminaires.  Using standards such as DALI and 12-24v you can connect with: 

  • Drivers
  • Power supplies
  • Ballasts with dimmer
 
The PLC also allows you to have parameters information that are previously configured for monitoring, such as:
  • Power consumption
  • Tension
  • Current
 
It was also important to have notification systems, alerts or alarms, in case of any type of failure or incident in the luminaires.
Thanks to the Smart Light Controller you can had a complete view of the status of the luminaires.  Advantages in a Smart Light Controller controlled installation:
  • Greater flexibility of the lighting system.
  •  Switching the luminaires on and off remotely.
  •  Control and monitoring of the infrastructures. 
  •  Energy savings of up to 60%.
  •   Better security.
  •  Simple PLC installation in public lighting solutions.  
  •  Use of existing power lines to send commands. 
  •   10% additional savings in case of using LED technology.
  •  Dim the lights thanks to network communication.
  •  Resistance to external interferences.
