Powelectrics Are Selected To Collaborate With Keele University On Their Ambitious Smart Energy Network Demonstrator
Powelectrics are delighted to be have been invited to participate in Keele University’s ground-breaking SEND programme. SEND stands for Smart Energy Network Demonstrator. This immense project is a European first … a world-class demonstrator facility for smart energy research and development in a life-size laboratory!
Powelectrics are UK distributor for EGE’s range of quality flow, level, pressure and proximity sensors including ATEX certified proximity switches for extreme ambient temperatures. IGEXHa and IGEXPa series withstand ambient temp up to +140 °C. IGEXPa "polar" are suitable down to -60 °C. Zones 0/20. IP69. M12, M18 & M30 designs. More info here.
Powelectrics have delivered a connected sensor solution to a customer who recycles waste cloths and leathers into brand new, usable products. This process creates waste products of its own and our IoT solution help ensure it is collected in a timely manner. Waste should never spill over, production is uninterrupted and collections are scheduled to minimise disruption.
Come and See Powelectrics Latest IoT wireless sensor network for Rail Technology at RailLive on 19-20 June
Powelectrics are delighted to have been selected to demonstrate our IoT technology at Porterbrook’s pioneering Innovation Hub, which will be launched at RailLive in June! We are creating a wireless sensor network, monitoring various parameters across the train. We will use the latest LPWAN technologies such as Sigfox to demonstrate how remote condition monitoring & reliable sensor data can provide knowledge to improve reliability, performance & comfort.
Powelectrics work with many environmental businesses, in projects ranging from waste collection and reservoir monitoring to water level management for wildlife habitat creation and sewage pumping. For this Industry 4.0 ‘solution, our customer is a UK supplier of environmental services and their client is a major retail chain with thousands of stores and several enormous distribution depots in strategic locations. Branded vehicles fuel up from huge tanks on the depots. Our IoT ensures they receive timely deliveries and protects them from fuel theft.
Powelectrics have delivered a ‘connected sensor’ solution to a customer with several sites generating standby power for National Grid. As the UK becomes more reliant on intermittent renewable power generation, a need has been created for highly responsive, on-demand generation capacity to ensure a secure, sustainable electricity system for the nation. It is essential that such power is always available when called upon and the Powelectrics solution helps with that!
