The SMART edge of SolarPack

Information technology (IT) is proving to be as valuable in waste collection as it is elsewhere. Knowing remotely when a compactor needs to be emptied is valuable information for a waste collection authority or collector. SolarPack is designed to make use of Cloud-based Remote Connectivity (M2M).

Universal communication

The SolarPack system is supported by eWON and supports all communication technologies. No matter which communication method is used (LAN, ADSL, 2G, 3G, 4G, LTE, WiFi, CDMA, etc.), The free software as offered by eWON will always offer the same user experience and same tools.

Obtain further CO2 reduction

When armed with this knowledge, the contractor can visit a site only when the compactor on that site is full, thus reducing the frequency of needless journeys and securing cost savings in staff time, fuel as well as vehicle wear and tear. This implicates another way to reduce CO2 next to the generated power via the photovoltaic panels of a SolarPack.

Reduced travelling for support on site

In addition the SolarPack control system is designed to offer easy remote access, across the Internet, to the SolarPack installations on customer sites or in the field. With the SolarPack M2M system, supported by eWON, service managers can troubleshoot machines remotely without going on site, drastically reducing support costs.

RFID and SolarPack

Why use RFID?

As the most flexible auto-identification technology RFID is proving to be valuable in waste collection. This makes it easy and cheap to organise access control. RFID makes it possible to identify people that are allowed to make use of a SolarPack to access the feeding system and fill it with their household waste. SolarPack is designed with the possibility to add an RFID access system.

SolarPack can communicate with RFID systems

SolarPack systems are open to communicate with an RFID system to give access to the feeding system of the compactor. SolarPack does not supply an RFID system because such systems should meet the requirements of the (municipal-) waste collector.

Deploying an RFID system necessitates multiple actors and many different components. Typically, installing a system requires basic hardware-including personalized tag chips, readers, and reader antennas-as well as reader control and application software, and solution providers to put it all together. When all of these components come together, an infinite number of creative applications are possible. RFID system applications can help to improve the management of waste collection. In addition, the foundations of variable charging lie in an information technology infrastructure that permits effective communication between household and municipality. RFID can help to provide that information.
