EQUOBOX allows for the metering of the power and resources of a building, making it possible to share the operational costs, in conformity with standard UNI 10200. The architecture of this system is modular, and was conceived to house a wide range of devices that can communicate with the most popularly used standard protocols, such as M-BUS, KNX, ZigBee, RS485, impulse inputs. EQUOBOX can simultaneously measure different sources of power and resources, such as: electricity, thermal and cooling energy, hot and cold sanitary water, grey waters, gas, solid urban waste. EQUOBOX is a management tool for the building, shopping centre or office building administrator, for the Energy Manager who wishes to offer guarantees on consumption data in an accurate and detailed manner. EQUOBOX is a tool for sales companies in the energy and utilities market, providing users with perceived added value to power supply. EQUOBOX helps users become aware of their consumption, thus providing a starting point from which to pursue energy efficiency. EQUOBOX is easy to consult thanks to a Web interface either locally or remotely, in a simple, intuitive manner. EQUOBOX integrates power metering to home and building automation systems, offering the visualisation of data collected on synoptic panels, display panels and touch screens of home automation systems. Thanks to the services managed by SINAPSI DATA SERVICE (SNDPS), EQUOBOX can show users, in precise and punctual detail: • Consumption information per period of time, with its respective amounts due • Heat consumption share report based on parameter configurations defined by users, in compliance with UNI 10200 • Information on consumption history • Configuration of consumption thresholds, with the automatic generation of signals and alarms • Access to a personal archive of consumption documents, such as utility bills, reports, contracts, text messages, promotions and offers. EQUOBOX can be consulted by users using the most commonly used consumer technologies: Web browser and smartphone apps.
