We’re pleased to announce the launch of a new energy management solution for the China market that pairs our VIA ARTiGO A600 system together with a data visualization application from Hyron, a leading software developer based in Shanghai.
Designed to enable building and factory owners to minimize energy consumption, the system can be easily connected to a wide range of sensors, light switches and fixtures, air conditioners, and industrial machinery through its four 3-Pole Phoenix RS-485 connectors, one COM port, and one DIO port. Full 3.75KV isolation in the RS-485 connectors ensures optimum reliability even during unexpected events such as power surges.
As the system receives the data, the Hyron application processes and displays critical information in real-time according to pre-set criteria such as temperature power consumption levels. The user-friendly interface and rich data visualization of the application make it fast and convenient for management to monitor the building’s energy usage patterns and identify opportunities for improving efficiency and reducing costs.
In addition to being easy to deploy, the system delivers years of reliable operation with its fanless low-power design. Flexible hardware and software customization options are also available to meet specific customer requirements.
With buildings accounting for an estimated 30% of China’s overall primary energy consumption, the government has made improving energy efficiency in offices, residences, and factories a major priority of its 13th five-year plan (2016-2020). The launch of this energy management solution with Hyron, is one of a number of steps we are taking to develop the flexible and reliable tools that building owners and managers throughout the country need to minimize power usage, reduce overall operational costs, and contribute towards a better environment.
