Dortmund, 20 November 2017. Lemonbeat GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of innogy SE, is set to present its IoT operating system Lemonbeat OS at this year’s “SPS IPC Drives”, the trade fair for the electrical automation sector, which will take place in Nuremberg from 28 to 30 November. The solution is suitable for a wide range of automation projects in the industrial, energy and housing sectors.
With Lemonbeat OS, users can create IoT applications by combining standardised software modules. The solution allows any device to process data independently, enabling it to function as an intelligent link in a larger network. The technology even extends to sensors and actuators, which are subject to significant limitations in terms of performance and size. With Lemonbeat, devices communicate and interact with one another directly, speaking the same language – Lemonbeat smart Device Language (LsDL) – regardless of the application. The combination of intelligence across all devices and a common language relieves cloud platforms and gateways of the task of managing the network. The pre-qualified data is transferred to the cloud solely for monitoring and control purposes, freeing up bandwidth and reducing the likelihood of system failures.
At stand 102/10.1, Lemonbeat will be showcasing a number of technologies, including the innogy solution “bit.B”, a cost-effective retrofit system for reliable process and energy monitoring for industrial buildings, hotels and offices. “bit.B” sensor nodes collect data from conventional sensors and transfer this data to a monitoring platform using Lemonbeat technology. The solution can be deployed in a diverse range of applications: In October, the company announced that “bit.B” had been installed as part of the “Hatta Rooftop Solar Initiative”, a solar project across 640 residential buildings in the United Arab Emirates.
Lemonbeat has proven useful closer to home, too: The technology has been fitted in the new research and training centre at EBZ Bochum, the European Training Centre for the Housing and Property Sector. Lemonbeat has also been used in smart garden technology, in robotic lawnmowers manufactured by Gardena and AL-KO.
