Innovation and R&D are for Power Engineering a key factor in Product & Services development. Years of experience of our team elements teached us that the best improvement always passes through innovation. While is not true the viceversa: not necessarily all innovation products are the best products as the experence and the maturity of the design plays a crucial role in the marketing success. The four most significant factors of innovation success identified in our analysis are:
- Understanding each technology in terms of its quantified contribution to corporate goals,
- Using external sources of business intelligence in a structured way,
- Reacting to changes in targeted segments by reviewing the product/service portfolio,
- Mobilizing the whole organization to develop new ideas.
Combining these three impacts allows companies to regularly re-align and reprioritise their technology investment portfolio to support corporate goals and reduces the potential for waste in technology development. Our Products and services are the result of the 4 key points above. Technology is used strictly to improve the customer satisfaction and reduce the time to market, that in turns is one of the company goals; external resources are always targeted to the result; changes are used as an engine to reinvent the products everytime; all memebers of our organization are focused in developing new ideas. This last point played a key role in the development of SmartCITY products and Services, that's why Power Engineering created a dedicated community on line hosting such a products (www.mysmart-city.com).

SmartMETERS are remore metering devices built to measure and report the consumption of the stndard utilities such as Electricity, Natural GAS, Water. In addition the Electricity meter platform has been customized to the additional needs of renewable energy market: SmartSUN and SmartWIND are the complete metering and monitoring solutions for Photovoltaic fields and Wind turbine installations. All meters are built around SmartPLC platform. The SmartNODE is connected with our Data Collection Centre using a TCP/IP connection that could be obtained using any existing broadband internet connection, including cable and WiFi connection. Alternatively the node can be connected using a WiFi router over GPRS service (whereas available) or dedicated Satellite connection where no connecton is available at destination site. Each device and its companion web interface is customized to fit the needs of the specific metering segment. SmartCLIMA is designed to monitor and automate Air Conditioning and Heating appliances, SmartWEATHER is designed to monitor meteorological parameters such as temperature, humidity, rain, wind, sunlight, athmospheric pressure for Greenhouses, Agriculture and in general places that are sesitive to weather condition, SmartLEVEL allow to perform hydrometry in a complete set of probes including: water level, flow rate, temperature, pH, dissolved Oxygen, this one is used to control and monitor Lakes, Rivers and any place at flooding risk. SmartSAFETY is the solution for Access control and remote safety management, useful to remotely control accesses and security sensitive places or installations. SmartCARE allow the remote reading of several biometric parameters interfacing a SmartNODE with proper device: glucose, oxymetry, weight, heartbeat, and so on. SmartM2M is the solution for Machine to Machine interfacing, ths is designed to drive directly existing hardware at both digital and analog level: examples of applications include interfacing Vending Machines, Totems, Ticket Machines, and pubblic point of sales. Finally SmartHEALTH is the solution to monitor the pollution parameters of soil, water and air: telemetry is performed on several different probes able to cover most of today needs in term of pollution monitoring.
Smart Meters are built around the same architecture that is shared among all devices. The only difference among the solutions is in the AFE (Analog-Front-End) that is designed to accomodate the physical measurement: SmartPOWER is able to read Electrical consumption of any Electrical Installation (both single-phase and 3-phases). SmartPOWER is equipped with a sepate Metering unit made with Voltage Transformers (VT) and Currrent Transformers (CT). Current Transformers could be inductive (easy to setup, no need to cut any wire as the current flow is measured inductively on the cable with a special split-core-current transformer probe) or resistive (more accurate for applications where the accuracy must stay within strict limits, an electricans is needed to install it).
In addition SmartPOWER is equipped with a pulse input that is able to read directly the light pulses of any IEC1107 compliant meter optical outlet. SmartSUN works exactly with the same scheme of SmartPOWER but is able to measure the energy produced by the PV-Plant, in addition SmartSUN is able to track the income from energy sales to the grid, the weather status, and the PV-plant efficiency. Whenever the energy produced by the PV-Plant is not aligned with expectation she system is able to send alerts using the Remote Control Centre via SMS or e-mail. Last but not least SmartSUN is able to increase the efficiency of the PV-field by switching the PV-field wiring upon climatic and light conditions. SmartWIND works exactly with the same features of SmartSUN, obviously here the biggest part of the relevant informations comes from the Wind forecasts. SmartGAS and SmartWATER are made to measure the consumption of Natural GAS and City Water by interfacing the provider meter using a dedicated optical head that is able to carry on the delicate measurement on the mechanical meter dials. All SmartMETERS comes with a very intuitive and easy to read Web interface where the visitor can find a lot of useful information from the operation to the deep technical stuff about the metering and data collection operations.

SmartLEVEL is a unique platform for Hydrometry. The solution is made up of the following components: one or many SmartNODES connected with probes. Probes include: flow-meters, rain meters, wind speed and direction meters, immersed temerature probes at different depth, pH probes, level probes. Level probes are crucial for this application, in fact we use sonar principle to measure the distance from the station unit to the top of the liquid surface to control. Having assumed to know the original depth of the water at the measurement point we are able to measure with great accuracy the level of the liquid below the probe. As the probe has no moving parts and is completely sealed the harware is able to stand even the worse weather conditions. Data coming from the station are cross linked with meteo data in order to foresee potential risks coming from flooding and excess of rain. In reaction of those events it's possible to open or close the water gateway to control the level of lakes, river, and water channel thus avoiding dangerous situations. All data, alert level, automation are completely controlled via web interface. This application comes already integrated with Web-GIS data for the best perfomance in geolocalization of the remote station and its surroundings.Download SmartLEVEL Product Information

In SmartM2M a SmartNODE is connected directly to another machine having its own CPU. Interfacing is done via I/O ports or serial ports hence there's virtually no limit to the kind of machine that could be interfaced assuming the end user owns the communication protocol with them. This solution is deeply customized upon customer needs and situation as it's impossible to foresee the kind of machine the customer is going to interface. However a typical and useful case is to have the device installed on one or more remote vending machines. Those machine usually require maintenance and refilling and it's necessary to poll them almost every day going on site. Vending machines are installed usually in offices, public places, schools, libraries, hospitals, offices where internet connection is not an issue, hence connection with Remote Control Centre is done quickly, easily and with no further costs. With this device it's possible to monitor also ticket machines, kiosks, and public info totem without the need to visit the device to understand their status.Download SmartM2M Product Informations (Currently Under Development)

PV-SAFE is an innovative product designed to solve the problem of fire events in Photovoltaic installations. In fact all Photovoltaic fields represent a potential danger for electric shock and fire accident as the electrical energy produced cannot be intrrupted, furthermore as the voltage is not referred to any ground, there's no possibility to protect thew user with a breaker. We must consider that even just 10 modules connected in series are able to develop well above 300V in DC! Imagine that usually the PV installations are made with 15 to 24 modules! If the user get close to the PV-Field during the day, is exposed to the risk of lethal voltages and currents. In case of fire it's impossible to use water as in a normal fire event, as the water would bring electricity to the firemans. Even in case of structure collapse (for istance in case of earthquake) the risk is very high. PV-SAFE solve this problem in a very clever way. The principle is very simple: each module is connected to a switch box that lets the module to stay connected with the others only when safe contitions are fullfilled. By default the box is open, so even connecting several modules in series will not cause any voltage rise up. The switching boxes receive the enable command through the same wires they use to bring electricity out. A central unit decide when is safe to power the field. User is able to put on safety the plant at any time by pressing a simple button. In case of fire or accidents, the lack of mains electricity will cause the plat to shutdown immediately with maximum safety. Also installation is made with maximum protection using modules equipped with PV-Safe device as during the installation no module will be electrically connected withe the others. PV-Safe is available in two configurations: the JBOX version is intended for module manufacturer who wants to produce safe module by adopting our solution (that works also as a standard JunctionBox), the Flying version is made for exisitng modules, it's connected in series using the PV pairs connectors and operate as the device wass mounted on the module itself.Download PV-SAFE Product Brochure
