No matter your current network mix, ENCOM Stratos Elite central software with Harmony devices bring connectivity, visibility, and manageability to sites and systems previously not “online”. The Encom Platform is inter-operable with any private Ethernet network (fiber optic, copper, or wireless), and can be used in conjunction with a 3G or 4G cellular network to bring back valuable data from any type of field device – no matter its age, type, or where it is located.
Using Stratos Elite, and Harmony products, you can now monitor devices that were otherwise not meant to be viewed remotely.
Some of the key benefits are:
Valuable data about each site’s “health” can be seen in real time
Data is logged for analysis to help dramatically improve preventative maintenance planning
You can be immediately notified of a downed site instead of waiting for scheduled visits or an exception report that relied the goodwill of strangers to call into the control
This real-time monitoring can reduce cost and manpower now that you can see the health of the whole network in one location.
Advanced IO 4G LTE
ENCOM STRATOS shows the location and status of all sites within the network - ENCOM Broadband and Harmony devices all on one map. Imagine being able to view and log the status of all of your solar powered sites in the entire city/county. View and manage city/ state wide school zone beacons from the comfort of your central office.
As with Stratos +, the main map dashboard in STRATOS ELITE is the focal point for monitoring and managing all of your wireless devices. Not only does this dashboard show you the status of the ENCOM wireless network devices but it also provides real time health status of YOUR site equipment.
On the map you will see all of the ENCOM broadband radios, the Harmony devices, and the status of your solar powered sites and flashing beacons. Managing the network is simple with color coded ‘link’ lines showing the status of all the wireless links in the network. Hover over or click any icon to view detailed information for each site.
With easy to identify color coded icons, you can quickly see if a site or sites are online or offline. You can also view the historical logs to see if there are any persistent issues with a particular site. When you send out a maintenance crew, they will already have an idea of what the problem is, and can ensure that they have the appropriate tools to repair or replace the faulty equipment.
With STRATOS ELITE, you can easily create and download schedules to all School Zone Flashing beacon sites in your city, county or state.
Here is a list of some of the core functionality:
• Centrally create, download, and manage all school zone beacon schedules
• Easily send schedules to groups of beacons or individual beacons
• Manual override with times resumption provides ultimate flexibility and fool proof reliability.
STRATOS ELITE directly monitors LED Lamp Status so you know if the LEDs are operating properly.
Many systems only monitor the relay that drives the lamp’s flashing, and not the beacon’s status itself.
Using Harmony, ENCOM Stratos can monitor up to (2) separate beacons at one site.
SOLAR MONITORING SYSTEMS
Solar Panel Output Voltage from a central location; you can see exactly how much power each solar array is generating at any given time during the day.
This information is displayed in real time and is logged for historical comparison.
Charge Controller Output Current
The charge controller takes the power from the solar panel and controls the battery charging process. The more efficient and effective the solar panels, the more charge current is present and the faster the battery gets charged during daylight hours. By measuring and displaying the charge controller output current, you can truly understand the health of your solar power charging system.
Correct battery operating voltage is critical for battery longevity. By ensuring your batteries are being charged as completely as possible and that they are not being drawn down too far, the life expectancy of the battery can be increased by 2-3x over a poorly charged battery. Since batteries are a major investment in a solar powered system, extending their life means you get a better return on your investment.
System Load Current
By monitoring the total load that is put on the batteries during the day and night, you can truly understand the capabilities of the system.
User-defined popup alerts within Stratos Elite, along with email notifications which can be sent out to any number of personnel responsible for maintaining the system which alerts you to potential problems, well in advance of total site failure.
All alarms and alerts are saved within Stratos Elite for future review. This running error log can provide important data about problematic sites and enabled operators to make informed decisions about which sites require additional maintenance or upgrades.
