MEASUREMENT MADE SIMPLE 

 

PLEXUS INNOVATION has developed GUARDIAN , a remote, automated measurement and alert system, which provides a digital alternative to manual measurement. 

 

GUARDIAN  provides a digital transformation within the facilities and energy management marketplaces.

 

GUARDIAN  IoT hardware and software platform is created entirely by the in-house team at PLEXUS INNOVATION .

Hardware is fast and easy to install.

 

GUARDIAN  is cost-effective, reliable, more convenient, reduces risk and impact on the environment.

OUR TECHNOLOGY

Node
  • Low power device which can record data and send it, via LoRa® radio, to the hub.

  • Capable of edge processing.

  • Can have up to three measurement sensors fitted.

  • Battery powered, with lifetime up to 10 years depending on application.

  • Enables measurement of environmental data including temperature, humidity, light and pressure.

  • On-board serial communication ports enable integration and control of equipment including BMS and a/c.

  • On-board outputs enable control of power to single and three phase equipment.

Hub
  • Securely controls and collects data, from up to 50 nodes, via LoRa® radio.

  • Transmits data via GSM 2G/3G/4G modem.

  • Onboard Wi-Fi.

  • Firmware and system settings can be remotely configured by an authorised administrator.

  • Can handle and process data from nodes with mixture of end applications (eg. temperature, pressure and light) simultaneously.

  • Mains powered, with option of solar PV and battery if used in off-grid location.

Cloud
  • Bespoke cloud architecture.

  • Fast, secure, flexible and value engineered.

  • Hosted on Microsoft Azure cloud computing platform.

  • Data can be integrated into other existing user platforms. (eg. ZetaSafe)

  • Secure access to electronic records by authorised users.

 

MARKET APPLICATIONS
