Wind Power

Scalable solutions for single “small wind” applications to multiple “wind farms”.

Resilient, reliable and efficient electrical grid operation is critical to society. The electrical power and energy industry is changing rapidly to meet the demands of the society and address decarbonization needs. New technologies offer significant opportunities for realizing a resilient and sustainable energy future. We are at a crossroads in making business and technical decisions that will allow us to optimally and cost-effectively manage the grid. Our HMI, Smart HMI, and Industrial PC products can be integrated into an existing infrastructure and add functionality.

Solar Power

Remote access is especially important for solar energy automation.

Solar systems must be designed with equipment, environment, and remote monitoring in mind. Environments may be harsh, with physical exposure posing a continuous risk of damaging equipment. Operations and maintenance may not always be able to operate at the location of a solar farm, due to lack of resources or equipment, and remote monitoring is the most efficient means of metering the energy output using remote data acquisition. Our remote access and IIoT solutions like MQTT, Ignition, and OPC UA can help bridge the gap.
