Automation, Industrial Controls, SCADA, and other M2M Communications Are Forming the Backbone of Future Infrastructure
While Automation and Industrial Controls have been central to oil & gas industries for quite some time, the expansion of machine to machine connected communication and technology is driving use in a variety of new areas. The number of communicating machine devices is expected to climb from 6 billion to nearly 75 billion in the coming years, up from only 100K a few decades ago.
As part of this expansion, the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is growing steadily into a more advanced mesh of networks, sensors, computers, and control systems capable of independent decision making, eventually paving the way for future M2M networks containing Artificial Intelligence (AI). The push for integration of AI into IIoT is already here as energy companies are beginning to partnerer with businesses who specialize in AI to improve operations and predictive capabilities.
One of the most critical components of scaling out this network of interconnected industrial devices is power. As the location of these devices continue to expand farther and farther away from places with access to grid power, providing these sensors and control networks with the appropriate remote power system is essential! SunWize has been a leading provider of reliable autonomous power systems for Automation and SCADA businesses for over 25 years! Our Solar, Battery Backup, and Hybrid Power Systems have been installed on all 7 continents and are trusted by leading businesses and governments throughout the world.
SunWize systems are the ideal solution for companies and entities addressing domestic and global power needs in the areas of Automation & Industrial Controls.
Our highly-experienced solar engineering staff designs rugged power systems to meet your project’s specific electrical, logistical, and environmental requirements.
Solar power and batteries can provide a convenient, cost-effective solution to areas without access to the utility power needed to implement telecom systems such as WiFi, SCADA networks, PLC devices, micro controllers, base transceiver stations (BTS), cell phone networks, satellite terminals, and so forth. It can also help maintain telecommunication systems in the event of inclement weather, which is particularly useful for emergency situations.
For example, remote power systems can be used to transmit data from a oil & gas line flow meter and other sensor infrastructure in areas without access to conventional power. It can also be useful in large well pads, mining areas, or other locations where power may not otherwise be cost effective to obtain. Solar power can help maximize the efficiency and minimize the costs of nearly every off-grid power application.
Advantages of Remote Solar Energy
Whether you are powering local SCADA, PLCs, WiFi, data acquisition systems, sensors, or are part of a network of cell towers, you need reliable, cost-effective power. Off-grid solar power can be used in remote locations to minimize the cost of energy while providing reliable power. Our remote power systems provide needed power 24/7. Solar panels provide low-cost electricity while a battery bank provides energy storage for evening and inclement weather. All equipment is housed in NEMA3R outdoor rated enclosures!
Each system is specifically designed to meet your energy needs, with capabilities for OEM integration of customer equipment, voltage converters, power supplies, or any other equipment. With our expertly designed industrial solar power systems, you get the following benefits without needless complications:
– 24/7 power for constant communications needs
– Chargeable battery bank that will provide autonomous power for 5 days
– Cost-effective solar power for remote locations
– System specifically designed for your project’s load requirements
– Completely designed, integrated, and manufactured by SunWize
