More Information
  • Calixto Systems Energy management solution includes an Intelligent Gateway Controller for managing and optimising power usage by devices such as lights, HVAC, Motors etc. Cloud connectivity for remote control and viewing the trends of sensors are added benefits of the system.
  • Configurable Input modules help the Intelligent Controller to sense ambient conditions. Output modules include ON/OFF, Leading/Trailing edge dimmer, DALI control and 0-10V analogue control for controlling luminaries. HVAC control is achieved by direct Fan Coil interface or using protocols such as BACnet IP/ MSTP.
  • Ambient light, Temperature, Occupancy and Motion sensing are the main sensor systems. Magnetic sensors are also supported mainly to detect vehicle presence for Parking and Gas station Bay-based control. Intelligent Gateway Controller does the energy management based on sensor input as well as programmed schedule. Real-time energy monitoring is possible with any MODBUS-compliant Energy meter. Hybrid inverter management helps utilization of power from multiple sources depending on availability and rate such as Solar.
  • The application includes Building, Parking, GAS Station, and Warehouse automation.
Key Features:
  1. Lighting Control: These systems provide precise control over lighting, allowing users to adjust brightness, color temperature, and even the scheduling of lighting fixtures. Smart sensors, occupancy detectors, and ambient light sensors help automate lighting based on occupancy and daylight conditions.
  2. Energy Monitoring: Energy Management Systems track energy consumption in real-time, offering insights into where and when energy is used. This data helps users identify patterns and areas for potential energy savings.
  3. Integration: These systems can integrate with other building automation systems and IoT devices, creating a cohesive ecosystem. Integration with HVAC systems, for example, allows for coordinated control of lighting and climate for optimal energy efficiency.
  4. Remote Control: Users can manage and control lighting and energy systems remotely through smartphones or computers, enabling real-time adjustments, scheduling, and troubleshooting.
  5. Energy Conservation: By optimizing lighting and energy usage, these systems lead to significant energy savings. This not only reduces utility costs but also contributes to sustainability goals by lowering a building's carbon footprint.
  1. Energy Efficiency: The primary advantage is reduced energy consumption. By turning off lights when not needed and adjusting lighting levels based on occupancy and natural light, energy waste is minimized.
  2. Cost Savings: Decreased energy usage results in lower utility bills, offering cost savings for homeowners and businesses. The initial investment in an Energy Management System is often recouped through these savings.
  3. Environmental Sustainability: Reduced energy consumption aligns with environmental sustainability objectives, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helping organizations and individuals meet their eco-friendly goals.
  4. Enhanced Comfort and Productivity: Better lighting control not only saves energy but also enhances the comfort and productivity of occupants. Optimal lighting levels contribute to a more pleasant and productive environment.
  5. Smart Automation: These systems enable smart automation and personalized control, making it easier to create lighting profiles, scenes, and schedules that cater to individual preferences and building needs.
