Smart Gas, Water and Electricity
Chimera IoT Smart Logistics is designed to help companies create end-to-end IoT based solutions through it’s pre-made UI/UX and functional modules. Creating a IOT solution for logistics-related business has never been easier.
With constant urbanization as well as demand for greater efficiency, utility companies need to augment capacity while adopting new solutions to optimize management of their existing utility assets. When it comes to manage the delivery and use of energy and water, or how cities are run, there’s a lot of opportunity that Chimera IoT offers.
The introduction of smart grids, smart meters and new ways of generating and transporting energy are being driven by our IoT solutions.
We enable smart utility services where energy, gas and water use is being monitored and proactively managed for increased profits, waste reduction, conservation, and sustainability goals.
IoT enabled Smart Water Management
Our smart Water metering IoT solutions are expertly designed to enable utility companies, cities, municipalities, buildings and industrial sites to increase profit margins, improve the performance of their water distribution system, reduce infrastructure investment and operating costs by implementing automated water consumption monitoring, water flow metering, and leakage detection.
Chimera’s IoT connectivity platform is used for high scale smart metering projects, benefitting from Sigfox technology and its long range and low power capabilities. Providing affordable and reliable way to manage metering and assets.
Why use Chimera IoT Smart Water Management Solutions.
Automated Meter Reading
We enable Meter-to-Cash services by visualizing water consumption, using connected meters. This reduces your billing costs by eliminating manual meter readings and reading errors.
This cost savings can be passed to the end consumers who get reduced consumer bills, also having access to their real-time water usage data to identify potentials to enhance water efficiency.
Reduce non-revenue water losses
Reduce non-revenue water losses through quick detection of water leaks and instances of fraud, using connected sensors, and address leaks prior to them becoming costly main breaks.
This optimization improves water management by ensuring sustainable management of water resources while enhancing revenue collection.
Quality and pressure monitoring
Operate a continuous health monitoring of the water distribution system, with synchronized pressure, flow and quality measurements using connected IoT sensors.
Remote Valve Control
Remotely disconnect or limit water flow to an end customer using connected Smart Valves, using bidirectional, low-latency IoT connectivity.
Why Use Chimera IoT Smart Gas Management Solutions.
Automated gas meter reading
Remotely measure gas flow rate through pipes via wireless Sigfox network and visualize gas consumption, with the ability to view usage trends.
Safety and System Integrity monitoring
Our Smart Gas IoT solution allows to visualize what’s happening inside gas pipelines: pressure changes, temperature, pipeline stress via strain gauges, the status of cathodic protection and more.
Get real-time data with prioritized alarms that allow you to maintain safe delivery operations, employee safety and meet regulatory requirements.
Methane sensing and gas leaks control
Automate and correlate readings to reduce gas losses. Monitor changing levels of methane using smart methane sensors.
Remote disconnect valves are used to shut off gas service when elevated levels of methane are detected, alleviating potentially dangerous situations before they arise, keeping utility personnel and customers safe.
Why Use Chimera IoT Smart Electricity Management Solutions.
Automated meter reading
IoT brings effective and scalable grid automation in a wide urban area with smart electricity meters transmitting readings via Sigfox.
Fraud, leaks and power losses detection
Electric power diversion detection can now be based on real-time, continuous, and localized analysis of changes in electric current flows and voltage levels in the distribution network to distinguish legitimate metered loads versus those from theft.
Our IoT solution helps to identify when current is drawn on the secondary of a transformer that did not go through a meter.
Smart meters enable transformer load management, performed at the device level by continuously calculating and monitoring impedance throughout the lower voltage system.
Utility companies can save money and time, avoid utility energy losses and serious safety risks by knowing when the transformer is approaching overload situations and taking action to avoid this situation.
Grid equipment monitoring
Substation temperature and humidity levels can affect the lifetime and performance of utility assets.
Remote Sigfox sensing allows to take care of grid assets: monitoring operating conditions in medium/low voltage street cabinets (temperature, humidity, vibration, door contact, pulse…) for unauthorized openings and overheating detection; monitoring lightning impact on key network infrastructure using connected surge arresters; copper cable drums theft detection using trackers; overhead power lines monitoring for electrical faults on portions linked to electric boxes at the bottom of the poles.
Demand response programs
IoT allows a granular control to switch individual loads on and off so that they can be reduced where needed and in times of peak power demand without impacting customers. Residential Demand Response is made easy and inexpensive using a seamlessly integrated device in the electrical panel.
These programs incentivize customers toward more energy-conservative usage patterns, giving utilities another tool for managing the use of the utility’s infrastructure.
The end result is reduced Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) and Operating Expenditure (OPEX) costs, ultimately reducing customer utility bills.
Increase the value of your business.
Previously, managing businesses utilities and energy usage have been expensive with huge operational costs.
But with our precision IoT enabled management and billing solutions you can manage all your business assets and energy billing directly from your consumers on the palm of your hands at a very affordable cost while automating the repetitive tiresome aspects of energy utility management.
