With growing concern over what global climate change means for the future of our planet, many companies are taking matters into their own hands to help reduce energy consumption and reliance on fossil fuels. A factory in Taiwan recently decided to implement a strategy of utilizing environmental monitoring to ensure the most efficient usage of air conditioning throughout their building. Being a large facility, this meant monitoring across several zones: offices, production lines, and warehouse. Additionally, they took the initiative to install solar panels, turning the roof of the facility into a solar farm. However, to achieve the goals of their plan, they needed an IoT based platform to help overcome key challenges.
Broad I/O Layout to connect multiple sensors and devices to a single system
Flexible Network Connectivity Flexible Network Connectivity to utilize both LAN and Wi-Fi connections where needed
Cloud Ready Solution to allow the factory to quickly and easily deploy their monitoring system
AAEON worked closely with the manufacturer, identifying key pain points and concluding the SRG-4854P to be the best solution. AAEON and the SRG-4854P offered several key benefits for this application:
Cost Effective Platform both in upfront costs and lifetime maintenance and operation
Custom UI Support to deliver exactly the information and controls the factory needs
Hardware-Software Integration to provided a total solution for the factory
With the SRG-4854P, the factory can set in motion their plans to monitor the facility and begin reducing energy consumption in an intelligent way. Additionally, by monitoring the status of the solar panels, they can ensure reliable energy product and proper maintenance. The cost savings of the system also means the factory can invest in the next steps to their goal of becoming a green factory. The SRG-4854P also shows that putting green infrastructure in place doesn’t have to be a budget breaking endeavor, and with support from AAEON, each project can be up and running quickly and smoothly.
