The main goal of Logimic in this project was to develop, in cooperation with Lersen CZ, a highly innovative, intelligent control system for wireless control of Lersen industrial heaters. The system extends the customer portfolio with a modern and efficient IoT component based on a modular software solution that can work intelligently with IoT devices.
The system monitors and controls the heating of industrial halls based on temperature profiles, indoor / outdoor temperature, working hours, etc. Each hall is fitted with an IoT Gateway (Aurora Hub IoT), divided into zones with one wireless temperature sensor and a set of wirelessly controlled heaters located on the ceiling of the hall. Data is stored in the AWS cloud.
Thanks to continuous analysis, recommendations, and alerts, the client gains valuable inputs to optimize heating and reduce costs. He can set the start and end of the heating so workers arrive in an optimally heated hall. The system is designed for industrial automation of devices such as lights, heaters, conveyors, manufacturing machines, robots, etc.
The IQRF network is used to transmit sensor data and heater commands. In general, there can be more than 200 devices in a signle network, the signal can pass to the furthest places of the hall thanks to the MESH topology, and the wireless solution greatly reduces the costs of wiring. Additional sensors and actuators can be added to the network - e.g. air-quality sensors.
