Plug & play device for all kitchen appliances to monitor energy consumption
Equipment Tracker measures the energy consumption of kitchen appliances. The collected data is analyzed in the intelligent SmartKitchen cloud service. As a result of continuous analysis, possible equipment failures can be predicted. This means, for example, that the technical staff will receive an alarm before a fault occurs in the cooling equipment or the dishwashing line. Significant food spoilage or service breaks can be prevented.
Equipment Tracker also monitors equipment operating hours and thus preventative maintenance is based on actual operating hours instead of inaccurate estimates.
Easy remote control of kitchen equipment
SmartKitchen Machine Link (ML) is a universal device with a built-in Internet connection. It includes a SIM card that provides an affordable data connection via the NB-IoT service in 4G / LTE mobile networks. The data between the SmartKitchen cloud service and ML is secure and automated.
Machine Link device is always configured for each equipment type. Configuration is made by SW and sometimes with minor HW changes. It is suitable for any kitchen equipment including kettles, dishwashers, coolers, freezers, etc. The device has a wide variety of communication interfaces (RS232, USB, RS-485, TTL, binary and analogy). Many standard sensors (temperature, humidity, energy, vibration, etc.) can be connected to ML.
The most flexible way to interface kitchen equipment ML is by using the serial data interface. Standard MODBUS communication or a proprietary protocol can be used. Kitchen equipment can send data to cloud and data from cloud can be sent to the equipment.
ML device is assembled either into the SmartKitchen standard enclosure or a custom enclosure. The device can be fixed on the outer surface or inside the kitchen equipment. The device has an embedded mobile network antenna. However, for improving the network sensitivity an external antenna can also be used.
SmartKitchen service features
SmartKitchen cloud service provides many existing features to analyse and share data. It also has an alarm management feature. SMS or email alarms of specified events can be distributed. The data between the SmartKitchen cloud service and SmartKitchen devices is secure and automated.
