We retrofit energy usage monitoring into offices, factories and breweries. We also supply to manufacturers of modular buildings.
Working with electrical component supplier Europa Components, we fit smart consumer units into existing and new-build premises, allowing building managers to see where energy is being used and take action to reduce costs. The 'isolate' and 'restore' buttons on our dashboard give managers the capability to temporarily stop energy from being used on a particular circuit at a particular time.
Find out where your energy costs are being incurred down at the level of individual circuits through which heaters and other energy-intensive appliances lare supplied.
By default we present and store half-hourly usage data for every circuit we are monitoring. If you require a different presentation we can tailor the dashboard to meet your requirement.
Isolate and restore
We provide an optional capability to shut circuits off to prevent unnecessary usage, for example at weekend when no staff are on site. This can be scheduled or done ad hoc.
Customised user access
Define different user types e.g. faciltiies manager, financial controller and set user-specific and device-specific levels of system access.
If you would prefer to see our data on your organisation's existing dashboard, we offer a documented API to allow your internal IT team to integrate Osmium data and controls
Our energy monitorung equipment also monitors temperature and humidity, allowing energy managers to ensure that good working conditions are being maintained.
Designed to meet modern needs
Connectivity to meet modern business needs.
Osmium is a cloud-based service that may be accessed remotely from any browser or mobile device, giving you greater control over your equipment. Osmium's embedded mini-computer links into your existing control systems without disturbing their operation.
Flexibile communication to reflect local connectivity.
Osmium may be deployed over 2G, 3/4G, 5G and wifi. This flexibility means that Osmium can be used remotely via the cloud or on a local area network (LAN). We were one of the first users of WM5G’s 5G testbed where we tested Osmium against the new 5G network standard - successfully!
Secure and robust.
Osmium uses encryption and a modern approach to communication architecture to overcome security threats. Hardened over several years at remote wind turbine sites, it is engineered to recover reliably and repeatedly from power outages, avoiding costly visits to restart remote equipment when power comes back on after an outage.
Control logic modification to reflect user knowledge.
Where equipment logic allows, Osmium can give you the capability to mask minor faults, allowing installations to remain active whilst a repair is organised. In some cases, control logic may also be modified. In one recent example a wind turbine operator was able to increase productivity by lowering the cut-out wind speed of a wind turbine which suffered unwarranted regular interruptions to service due to its location at an unusually turbulent site.
