MIMOS unveils secured smart controller system for optimising energy consumption in buildings
MIMOS Semiconductor (M) Sdn Bhd (MSSB) has unveiled a smart controller system for buildings that allows facility managers to not only better understand their energy consumption patterns, but also have direct control over it. MIMOS is the National research and development (R&D) centre in information and communications technology (ICT) in Malaysia. MSSB provides Research and Development Advanced Shared Facilities as part of the Malaysian Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) under the Electrical and Electronics National Key Economic Area.
The Secured Smart Controller (SSC) system is an interlinked network of hardware and software, which monitors and controls the environment, space and facilities in commercial and industrial buildings. Coupled with an Autonomous Intelligent Ambient Control System, the SSC serves as an Internet of Things (IoT) solution capable of turning an industrial building into a smart establishment. Designed to be simple to use, the system autonomously monitors and controls ambient parameters such as temperature, and room space brightness.
The SSC helps save energy and ensures optimum operational performance of the facility, as well as the comfort and safety of building occupants. Reliable and secure, the SSC system has been shown to enable energy savings up to an estimated 50 percent in lighting and 30 percent in air conditioners.
At the launch of the product, MIMOS also announced that it is working together with Reneon Technologies, a Malaysian startup that specialises in IoT, smart building and energy efficiency services and solutions.
MSSB General Manager, Wan Azli Wan Ismail, who is also MIMOS Vice-President for E&E Sector said, “MIMOS supports local startups company by transferring our technologies. Partnering with Reneon Technologies allows MIMOS to integrate our SSC with Reneon's cloud-based energy management platform to produce a comprehensive energy management solution.”
Reneon Director, Ashwin Menon, said: "Our collaboration with MIMOS has allowed Reneon to speed up the R&D process for product development. The expertise and vast knowledge provided by MIMOS together with the market experience provided by our company has allowed us to build a solution that caters to the requirement of the market while keeping costs low and without compromising on features and quality.”
“This collaboration has certainly been very useful to us and we hope there can be more such collaborations in the future. A market roll-out for the SSC system has been planned by first quarter of 2018,” he added.
