In SEMIAH, an innovative probe has been developed for Develco Products’ External Meter Interface (EMI), allowing the EMI to collect real-time temperature data from boilers. The data ensure that cuts on the boilers do not affect the comfort of SEMIAH system users.
Attached directly to the boiler
By attaching the probe directly to a boiler with a magnet, the EMI collects temperature data from the boiler. The data are continuously sent via ZigBee to a gateway. In this way, users are provided with information on how the temperature is affected by cuts on their boiler.
Ensuring comfort levels of users
The probe provides an essential functionality to the SEMIAH system. Since the aim is to develop a system for implementation of Demand Response in private households, it is vital that comfort levels of the residents are not compromised. With the new probe, the system ensures that the boiler temperature limits defined by the users are kept.
