Industrial Internet of Things system provides connectivity for lighting controls, shore power systems, smart meters and other equipment.
Chinese lighting and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) supplier BiNY has announced a new project to implement an extensive system at Tianjin Port.
BiNY will supply an IIoT system to connect a wide variety of equipment to create what it calls an “Internet of Everything (IoE)” system at the Phase C Automated Container Terminal at Tianjin.
The connected equipment includes 3 x 3000kW Shore Power systems, 34 lighting towers (each 35m high with 18 LED floodlights), 12 street light posts with 4 LED fixtures and hundreds of smart meters.
“Once completed, it will become the first extensive IIoT project with one-separate-network-and-one-control-platform extended from IoL 2.0, where nearly 200 ends including 410 smart electricity meters, 89 water pressure sensors, 28 smart water meters, 6 electromagnetic valves, 3 ultrasonic water-level sensors, 3 photoelectric sensors, 2 air quality sensors and others will be connected and accessed to the BiAMS (the SaaS BiNY has been offering) for monitoring and remote control,” BiNY stated.
In addition to the wireless communication system, BiNY said it will develop and deploy 30 millimetre-wave radars on the lighting towers to “identify, locate and track AGVs and other moving objects for the synchronised linkage to the IoL system.”
The IIoT system also opens up possibilities for high throughput data transmission for applications such as remote camera surveillance and crane diagnostics, BiNY concluded.
