The IoT Energy Management Platform is an integrated and proven solution that works as a backend facility for monitoring and managing parameters in smart retail environments. The platform leverages the Intel® Pentium® QC N4200-based IBASE OFP-151-PC-NVK open-frame 15-inch panel PC and Novakon iFACE Designer software as a SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System) management solution. It displays real-time status of equipment such as freezer, air conditioning, lighting system and power meter, and serves as a communication bridge between sensors and the cloud to instantly transmit equipment operating status, event and alarm messages through email or LINE App in order to optimize overall power consumption and avoid down-time.

OFP-151-PC-NVK open-frame 15-inch panel PC

The IoT Energy Management Platform integrates four intelligent management systems (as listed below) for the retail environment to optimize energy consumption.       

  • Freezer - Operating status & trend, dynamic group selection, smart defrost control    
  • Air conditioning - Operating status & trend, dynamic group selection, scheduler    
  • Lighting - Operating status & trend, scheduler    
  • Power - Instant power consumption, cumulative daily power usage, power metrics, and power demand

The platform features modularized functional blocks for easy customization across all venues in the retail industry. The upgradeable OFP-151-PC-NVK panel PC comes with easy to mount, open-frame modular design with optional colored frames. It supports IP65 front panel protection against dust and water and is built with industrial-grade components to ensure reliable performance with fanless operation in temperatures of up to 50°C.

Installed with the Novakon iFACE Designer, a comprehensive object-oriented UI/UX graphics editing tool that utilizes numerous industrial automation standard protocols, mainstream brand name PLC drivers and universal IoT cloud protocols, the platform can provide easy connectivity among diversified industrial equipment and devices, such as sensors, power meters, controller, PLCs, IO modules, and IoT cloud platform.
