CLOUD PLATFORM FOR MONITORING, REMOTE CONTROL AND DECISION SUPPORT FOR REFRIGERATION EQUIPMENT

AKONET.Cloud

AKONET.Cloud is software by AKO for monitoring, remote control and support, that allows installers know the condition of refrigeration equipment remotely, from any location and at any time, in a manner that is easy, graphic and quick.

All AKO equipment (Controllers, sensors, gas detectors, trapped person alarms, etc.) can communicate with the AKONET.Cloud via two methods:

  • Through wireless communication (Narrow-Band IoT) built-in to the devices
  • Through the AKONET.Edge communication gateway. The AKONET.Edge acts as a device hub via modbus-rtu and sends and receives data to and from the AKONET.Cloud software through the clients network (Ethernet) or via data card (2G-GPRS).

Some AKONET.Edge models offer variants with analogue/digital input and output relays for greater functionality and integration capacity.

Some functional possibilities of the platform are provided below:

  • Devices

Analysis of the temperature registry to detect operating anomalies in the refrigeration services:

Quickly, we can see how much time we are within the temperature range and its Max/min records:

Access to the “Real Time” mode to view the cooling cycles with different temperature setpoints of the service (very useful for detecting problems with ice expansion or build-up). Also to activate the Stand-by (maintenance) and forces defrost cycles (ice build-up):

For each day, view the time the door is open as well as the number of times it is opened (including the average time per opening), operating time of the compressor and defrost cycle times:

View the activity of the service per day, week or month:

View the Core Index (comprehensive efficiency index) and list the equipment based on the efficiency ranking:

   

Continuous recording of temperature and humidity with alarm levels and operating range:

Histogram that shows the efficiency of the regulation in terms of product conservation and energy efficiency:

Daily activity (with maximum, minimum and average temperature and/or relative humidity):

Analysis of the continuous gas leak record in ppm:

% of time inside the desired temperature/humidity range, above and below:

Monthly and daily map of the concentration of gas by days and time slots:

Daily graph of the evolution of the leak index (kg/year) and charge loss index (%):

TGCI: Total gas concentration index per day and hour to detect at what moments the equipment leaks the most:

Continuous temperature and/or humidity record analysis to detect anomalies, ageing evolution and drying of meat/fish/fruit, legal, compliance, regulatory, IFSs
