DTC have designed and solved communication solutions for SME and Large utilities by leveraging the low power and low cost LPWAN SIGFOX Network.
SIGFOX is a global network technology which has been adopted by more than 70 national IoT operators covering in excess of 1 billion people.
It drastically brings down cost and energy consumption required for securely connecting physical devices to the Internet.
DTC IoT Devices
PowerFox is a wireless & autonomous power monitor that measures in real time power on/off. Additionally it is equipped with an ambient and a highly accurate non-contact object temperature sensor on board. It is perfect for monitoring server rooms, Telecoms equipment and overheating equipment. PowerFox is plugged in via a Micro USB cable, which charges the rechargeable battery. The data is collected in real time and are available using API towards various IoT Platforms, which provides the alerts. The installation and move into service are very easy, in just a few minutes – simply plug into a USB power source. The Device sends (via Sigfox) a message about the ambient and object temperature every 1 Hour to every 12 Hours (configurable) and sends an immediate alert in the case of lost power.
PowerFox comes with an optional comprehensive platform, which will provide email alerts on detecting a loss of power and when power has been restored.
DeskSense is a wireless & autonomous occupation sensor that measures in real time workspace occupation and ambient temperature: workstations, meeting rooms & pods, booth. The data is collected in real time and are available using API towards various IoT Platforms, which provides the alerts. The installation and move into service are very easy, in just a few minutes, which can provide reports, analysis and improvement proposals.
DeskFox can be operated via a rechargeable battery or plug in via a micro USB power source.
If Battery operated, PowerFox will operate autonomously for approx 2 years before a recharge is required.
SigFlite is a SIGFOX comms adaptor for existing Fault passage Indicators (FPIs) that monitors the status of Medium Voltage Lines.
Instead of Power distribution companies, waiting upon fault calls from their customers on end of line power outages. SIGFLITE will recognizes the fault codes within the FPI and send the fault code directly to the Power Companies Control Centre.
The fault code will detail the nature of the fault and the location of the fault, thereby reducing fault restorations times.
SIGFLITE comes with an optional comprehensive platform, which will provide email alerts on detecting permanent and transient fault conditions. Or the data can be sent directly into the Power Companies SCADA system.
Office Space Monitoring
DTCs’ DeskFox can be integrated into third party Workplace management suites, to provide smart and flexible work environments.
DeskFox devices are easily installed within a few minutes underneath work spaces. They will detect if the deskspace is occupied or not. The data is collected by platforms allowing employers to optimaise work environments and give employees employees remote visibility on desk space availability.
