Plogg Network controller monitors real-time energy consumption

"Using a production-ready module and Windows Embedded CE 6.0, substantially reduced the risk, cost and time-to-market for this customer, who was able to take advantage of a commercial, well supported platform," commented David Pashley, Direct Insight's CEO.

"Also, Windows Embedded CE itself is an energy-efficient solution, with unparalleled power-management capabilities, which makes it ideal for a diverse range of low-power and portable applications," he continued.

Energy Optimizers is a UK-based electrical company which designs innovative, energy saving technologies, and promotes and distributes generation and renewable products. Energy Optimizers wanted to develop a smart energy meter that provided immediate and accurate energy readings at the source point using the latest in wireless technology. Energy Optimizers turned to ByteSnap Design to assist in the conception, design and production of a smart energy reading meter that would save users time and money, by making it easy to monitor energy consumption.

Plogg Network Controller utilizing the Direct Insight SwiftModule-PX, System on Module (SOM) which then allows utility companies to implement a demand response system to prevent large-scale power grid failures and widespread energy blackouts. This Windows Embedded CE 6.0 based system runs an ASP Web server interface which downloads data from its network Ploggs to a central SQLite database, allowing for centralised management of an entire network of Plogg energy devices and greater control over energy consumption.
