Architecture

  • IIoT sensors and controllers level (of own design with other vendors’ solutions support). The level covers data acquisition and endpoint equipment control:

    • boilers / heaters

    • air conditioning systems

    • ventilation systems

    • energy storage systems

    • renewable energy sources

    • back-up generation (e.g., diesel-driven generator set)

    • IoT sensors (energy, current, voltage, pressure, consumption, temperature, CO2, etc.) of various consumers

    • metering systems

  • EDGE level. Sensors and controllers interaction using standard protocols (Modbus, MQTT, AMQP, KNX, etc.), data aggregation and batch transfer to the upper level, control strategy reception and implementation

  • On-premise / Cloud level. A set of subsystems responsible for intelligent monitoring, planning and predictive management of energy resources.

AlteroBMS is based on the AlteroUniversal IIoT-platform.

Subsystems
