SMART FLOW

Smart Flow is the monitoring, storing and analysis solution for dispensers collected data.

Data Sheet

Highlights

Communication

Smart Flow Base Kit

  • One electronic module
  • Sensors (temperature, debit, weight)
  • Dashboard – software application with individual access for operators and suppliers

This solution is equipped with adaptive monitoring devices for data transmitted by dispensers. These can be customized according to specific customer requirements.

Smart Flow ‘s temperature, debit and weight sensors ensure the collection of data regarding the registered information on each device, in one or more points of contact.

System reports centralize the information and send it to a central server where data can be further manipulated.

For an exhaustive monitoring of quality, a system of temperature, debit and weight sensors can be installed inside, outside, or in any other contact points of the barrel, given that the system has the capacity to store, interpret and signal the received data.

  • Long range: 4G / 3G / GPRS / GPRS+GPS / LoRaWAN / LoRa / Sigfox / 868 MHz / 900 MHz
  • Medium range: ZigBee / WiFi
  • Short range: RFID/NFC / Bluetooth 2.1 / BLE
  • Over the Air Programming (OTA)
  • Encryption libraries (AES, RSA, MD5, SHA, Hash)
  • Industrial Protocols: RS-232, RS-485, Modbus, CAN Bus, 4-20mA

Measured parameters

Temperature

Debit

Weight

It is important to measure temperature in order to make sure that the liquid is kept in optimal conditions.
Any deviation from the pre-established parameters will generate an alarm to inform the operator that the fluid’s temperature has changed.

The debit/flow sensor monitors the total amount of sold beer to avoid fraud attempts and to enable operators to refill the barrel in a timely manner. It also offers data analysis potential, which can help identify the best time periods to sell beer.

A weight sensor or a load cell is a transducer (physical element) that can turn pressure (force) into an electrical signal. The weight sensor is closely related to the debit sensor, because both of them help avoid fraud attempts. Moreover, this sensor can inform the client when a barrel is replaced.

Main features

Functionality – Enables equipment functioning to the highest standards in terms of quality.

Alarm system – According to specific terms (sanitation, calibrations, overdue repairs, etc.) and in real time (possible damages, equipment temperature).

Customer support – Fast customer complaint management, by sending SMS messages to the area responsible for the supply/ or technical maintenance of the machine on which the complaint was made.
