Mobile Connectivity Increases Efficiency

Canary is a mobile (GPRS) enabled data acquisition and control device. It has been designed to be both cost effective and easy to install. As a mobile device, Canary data acquisition device works independently of a building’s IT network. Therefore it can be installed in almost any building or location, eliminating civil construction, reducing electrical and engineering costs. Allowing you to get the most from your existing infrastructure.

Energy Data Communication

The ability to access and acquire accurate Energy Data is one of the most important parts of an Energy Management System. Also a traditional EM system requires connection to an organisation’s IT network, requiring significant capital investments and creating interconnectivity problems.
