CLEVELAND, USA: Paragon Robotics, which is developing affordable solutions to make buildings and processes cost- and energy-efficient, launched its new line of wireless data acquisition products on September 25 at the World Energy Engineering Congress (WEEC).
The company's advanced system enables users to obtain robust analytics thanks to a range of easy-to-install monitoring and logging hardware, which is combined with an integrated, flexible suite of browser-based software tools.
"Our data acquisition system is affordable, simple and powerful," says Julian Lamb, president, Paragon Robotics. "For users, it has clear advantages: The all-in-one system has four times the wireless range of other sensors, a 90-second setup time per sensor and a battery life of up to 10 years-all at one-third the cost of competing systems. We are thrilled to offer this cost-effective, efficient solution to energy engineers and companies."
Paragon Robotics' new solution utilizes their novel wireless Halo/S architecture, which merges the fields of data acquisition and control into a single unified system. By combining a peer-to-peer platform optimized to run on low-cost microprocessors with a proprietary wireless architecture, users can assemble fully intelligent systems of sensors and controls.
"Because of Halo/S, even simple sensors can autonomously communicate with other devices and run their own algorithms," says Lamb. "This creates an extremely powerful, self-configuring network of smart devices." Customers with specialized hardware can integrate with Paragon's wireless data acquisition line by utilizing the company's OEM modules, which bring the benefits of the wireless Halo/S platform to third-party devices.
Paragon Robotics is committed to becoming a leader in the data acquisition market. "Our goal is to help users obtain the information they need with an order of magnitude reduction in system design and installation time," Lamb says.
