Energy Management

For over two decades, Radio-Tech has pioneered the development of RF based wireless monitoring solutions for Energy Management applications. We are considered the technology partner of choice for many of the UK and Europe's leading data collection and carbon management service providers.

Our market leading solutions provide our partners with the 'near-real-time' data that they need to help their customers to eliminate waste, cut costs and reduce carbon emissions. We are committed to our partners and work hard to help them realise their goals through the on-going design and development of creative and innovative data collection and remote monitoring technologies.

Solutions

Our range of products include transmitters and sensors for multi-utility including ATEX, temperature, humidity, open/close, CO2 and movement (PIR) applications, which can be integrated into existing BMS systems via Pulse or Modbus receivers, or sent off-site via our GPRS, Wi-Fi or Ethernet gateways to drive 3rd party applications and near-real-time displays.

In addition to Fixed Network systems, our product portfolio also includes a market leading suite of  Data Loggers, which offer a robust and cost-effective means of monitoring single-point applications. Data is provided in a ½ hourly CSV format, in-line with the industry standard.

How it Works

Wireless transmitters are fitted strategically around a building to monitor not only the incoming supply, but also the internal distribution of energy via sub-meters, to identify areas of high use or points or interest. Once deployed, data is transmitted into existing Building Management Systems (BMS) or sent off-site to 3rd party applications via our Wi5 Data Hub, using GPRS, Ethernet or Wi-Fi.

Our market leading battery powered aM&T hardware solutions are non-invasive, making them suitable for both new and retro-fit installations. As our technology has been designed to be simple-to-use and easy-to-install, deployment time on-site is reduced to a minimum, reducing the overall cost of ownership and increasing roll-out efficiencies.

Our products are fully approved in the UK and Europe and are available on 434MHz, 869MHz, 153MHz (UK Only) and 169MHz ERMES band for many European Countries

Our 153MHz and 169MHz solutions are considered to 'best in class' for remote monitoring applications. This is primarily due to their superior output power that allows us to transmit data up to 2km point-to-point and re-broadcast that data on a further 10km using our high-powered repeaters . This is all achieved without compromising battery life, which is still offered as 10-years.

This market leading USP has made our Economise suite of products the obvious choice for monitoring ports, airports, universities, schools, hospitals, holiday parks and indeed any medium to large commercial premises, which can sometimes prove problematic for less powerful systems.
