Energy Management System at Sugar Industry
Energy Management System at Sugar Industry
The company wanted to use the information from the system to claim under the renewable energy certificate scheme. The benefit to the company under the renewable energy certificates is Rs 75 million a year. To enable the above, an end-to-end solution for load monitoring, consumption monitoring, online data monitoring, automatic meter data acquisition which can be exported to SAP and other applications is required.
Big Data and Predictive Maintenance
Big Data and Predictive Maintenance
Predictive maintenance refers to techniques that help determine the condition of in-service equipment in order to predict and/or optimize when maintenance should be performed. Predictive maintenance is one of the most important benefits of the Industry 4.0 revolution. 
Fully Automated Identification in the Steel Industry
Fully Automated Identification in the Steel Industry
Different industries also have different requirements with regard to identification systems and materials. Let us take a look at the steel industry. As this is a difficult environment, requirements are very different. This applies, in particular, to the labels and tags that are used to ensure full material traceability. Raw materials and products have rough surfaces. In addition, the data carriers are exposed to enormous heat and heavy soiling. And last but not least, the whole identification process always has to be carried out under time pressure. Usually, there is a maximum of 10 seconds for the application of each tag.

Smart HVAC
Smart HVAC
HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) is the technology of indoor environmental control. Its goal is to manage air temperature, humidity and quality to meet the needs of both people and industrial processes. With low cost sensors, wireless connectivity and more powerful data processors, HVAC companies are now able to collect real time performance data and monitor the condition of their equipment. Remote monitoring solutions can monitor hard to reach areas and sites in order to alert staff to a breakage and heat or water damage in a cable. IoT can help the HVAC industry improve overall equipment effectiveness and save money by minimising equipment failure and optimizing energy usage and performance levels. Direct digital control: Central controllers and most terminal unit controllers are programmable, meaning the direct digital control program code may be customized for the intended use. The program features include time schedules, setpoints, controllers, logic, timers, trend logs, and alarms. The unit controllers typically have analog and digital inputs that allow measurement of the variable (temperature, humidity, or pressure) and analog and digital outputs for control of the transport medium (hot/cold water and/or steam). Digital inputs are typically (dry) contacts from a control device, and analog inputs are typically a voltage or current measurement from a variable (temperature, humidity, velocity, or pressure) sensing device. Digital outputs are typically relay contacts used to start and stop equipment, and analog outputs are typically voltage or current signals to control the movement of the medium (air/water/steam) control devices such as valves, dampers, and motors. Groups of DDC controllers, networked or not, form a layer of system themselves. This "subsystem" is vital to the performance and basic operation of the overall HVAC system. The DDC system is the "brain" of the HVAC system. It dictates the position of every damper and valve in a system. It determines which fans, pumps, and chiller run and at what speed or capacity. With this configurable intelligency in this "brain", we are moving to the concept of building automation. Key vendors: Grainger, Johnson Controls, Lennox Commercial, Mitsubishi
