IoT Globiots solution to monitor on/off power of refrigerated containers on barge

 

Introduction

 

IoT Globiots is a comprehensive solution (hardware and software) to monitor on/off power of refrigerated containers on barge. The solution applies IoT technology based on Internet of Things Globiots platform developed by Daviteq since 2012 and based on Daviteq’s 18 years of experience in industrial instrumentation and control.

Main functions

 

Automatically collect run/stop of generator set, on/off power of refrigerated containers on barge, and GPS position of barge
.
View current running status of generator, power load of containers, on/off power supply to refrigerated containers, and current GPS position of barge
Show reports of historical trend for running status of generator, power load of containers, and on/off power supply to refrigerated containers during selected period
.
Immediately notify abnormal alarm and event (over-voltage, over-power load of container, abnormal on/off power supply to container, connection break….) through web on PC, through application on smartphone and tablet and through user’s email
 Send daily reports of generator operation and status of power supply to containers on barge to registered users through email
.
Manage account, group and user. Each user is authorized relevant rights and interfaces to monitor on/off power supply to containers on barge effectively

 

 

Highlight features

 

Anywhere monitoring for on/off power of refrigerated containers by PC, tablet and smartphone Customized function and report design based on customer request
. .
Easy upgrade and expansion  Fast installation and deployment
. .
Convenient data exchange with ERP, CRM… Secure connection with closed communication protocol

 

Typical benefits

 

Assist to handle issue of faulty operation in supplying power to containers Provide reliable evidences to customer in case of spoiled goods
Historical trend of on/off power for containers assists manager to identify and handle issue of faulty operation of  barge operator in supplying power to containers Data of on/off power of containers is collected automatically, precisely and continuously and is stored on cloud server for long time to provide reliable evidences to customer if quality problem of transported goods occurs
. .
Calculate precisely transportation cost Reduce risk of spoiled transported goods
Total time of on-power for container is reported precisely to facilitate to correct calculation of electricity cost assigned to barge operation team Alarm of abnormal off-power of container is notified immediately to manager to handle the problem timely, thus preventing from long off-power of container causing spoilage of transported goods
. .
Optimize fleet coordination Promote company brand name
Barge information of current GPS position, time of departure and arrival, and specific trip fuel consumption helps fleet coordinator assign barge in service effectively Barge equipped with online monitoring system builds trust to customer that their refrigerated containers would be supplied power continuously to reduce risk of spoiled transported goods

 

Deployment process

 

Fast system deployment in two steps

 

Step 1: Install sensor of generator running and sensors of on/off power of containers, and connect them to 3G iConnector

 

Sensor of generator running and sensors of on/off power of containers are installed in an electric panel for refrigerated containers on barge. These sensors are connected to a RS485 converter. The converter is connected to 3G iConnector through port RS485, communication protocol Modbus RTU.  The iConnector collects data of the sensors and transmit them to cloud server through cellular network (GPRS/3G).

Step 2: Remotely configure for system, device and parameter through web

 

Power up for all system and sign in on web browser (Google, Chrome, Firefox…) with provided user and password to configure system, iConnector, parameter, alarm, event, dashboard interface, report, automatic email, automatic SMS, group management, and user management and then synchronize configurations to remote iConnector. After configuration, user could access software to monitor on/off power of refrigerated containers on barge.
