Modern production organizations strive to optimize all processes and make the data collection process much easier, faster and cost-effective. But the reality is that equipment such as pump motors or HVAC units is often located in hard-to-reach places making tracking of the running their parameters time-consuming and expensive.
Moreover, losing time to unplanned response equipment malfunction and failure is even worse. Therefore, Ergsense LLC was looking for an IoT solution capable of quickly collecting information about production with non-invasive implementation into machines. However, there was no such solution available on the market. So Ergsense needed to find a cost-effective technology that could analyze the energy efficiency in real-time. Hence, the company was faced with the task of finding a partner that could create such a tool by using the certified and reliable technologies and taking into account all the pitfalls of the IoT sphere.
The Zerynth team helped Ergsense release DTECTS (Detection and Tracking of Energy and Condition Trends System), an IoT-enabled solution designed for real-time monitoring of power consumption. It is built using the Zerynth IoT module (ZM1) connected directly to the Ergsense Cloud by Zerynth Device Manager (ZDM).
DTECTS is a conventional three channel power meter adaptable to many different load configurations, including non-energy sensor reading, it also can reduce data footprint dramatically. This technology replaces conventional time series data with compact ‘KPI Event Vectors’ (KEVs) describing changes significant to the user without loss of meaning. Thanks to Zerynth expert knowledges in IoT and Ergsense’ expertise in electrical systems, these KEVs may be customized based on collected system data through manual or machine learning means. Similarly, the user defined KEV trigger levels may be set manually or through machine learning process.
Many industrial sensor solutions rely on expensive on-site data collection through hard-wire links or storage removal. Thanks to Zerynth’ technology and consultancy, Ergsense has successfully completed the creation of an IoT solution that allows you to remotely view data at any time using specially designed dashboards.
Using proprietary data packaging, Ergsense can send reliable and useful data from relatively small sensors to customers via Wi-Fi, cellular or LoRA.
In just 3 months of concentrated technology integration, Zerynth helped Ergsense create a finished product that is able to monitor energy consumption parameters in real-time and send intelligent alerts.
