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
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.
