Process and energy monitoring system is easy to retrofit

May 22, 2017 // By Julien Happich
The “innogy bit.B” process and energy monitoring system records, monitors and evaluates the energy, production and environmental data of industrial machinery.

Based on the Lemonbeat IoT technology, the cost-effective retrofit solution is suitable for small and medium-sized operations to fit their existing industrial plants with customary sensors or counters during operation to ensure comprehensive monitoring. The system can record important energy and process data at the consumer level and identify savings potentials.

The individual measured data, such as current consumption or temperature values, are sent to a gateway via Lemonbeat Radio, a patented radio technology in the sub-GHz range, which transmits the data online to the bit.B platform. On the platform, the current situation can be graphically displayed and monitored on a customisable dashboard and analysis area.

Due to its significantly higher ranges than WLAN as well as the better data rates compared to conventional 868 MHz radio, the Lemonbeat Radio is fit for use in industrial environments. This means that additional repeaters to transmit the data within larger halls are generally no longer required.
