I’m really excited to share successful deployment of EpsumThings on field in a village at Bargarh Road, Odisha.
The problem statement :
Government of Odisha had installed Solar powered pumps in various locations of Odisha to deliver drinking water to the localites. The water was previously delivered using borewells. But due to the increasing depth of water, government installed Solar powered pumps to pull the water from ground, independent of Grid electricity supply.
The problem here was the installation was done by many different companies so it was almost impossible, remotely to identify which company installed which pump and who to maintain in the event of fault. So to diagnose the issue one has to come to the location and contact the company who installed the pump which is both time and money consuming task.
So to solve this is problem we at Epsum Labs developed a system (both hardware and software) which can easily identify and maintain records on who installed a particular system. Apart from that, our hardware monitors data such as currents flowing through the motor (3 phase Motor) Light intensity, panel voltage, water level which are all powered by the same solar panel installed on site using power supply circuit we developed, without any external power source.
With the help of these parameters, one can not only identify the system vendor but also help authorized personnel to diagnose the issue on why did a particular fault occur…
For instance, let’s assume, it’s been detected that a particular system is faulty… with the help of our solution, one can pull out all the parameters in EpsumThings panel. Now to start with, one can view whether there is enough sun light available or not with the help of Light intensity parameter. And then one can see whether motor is getting enough current to pull up water from the ground in each phase individually and so on. This helps the technical person to pinpoint the exact issue.
We tried (keep on trying) to make EpsumThings IoT as easy as possible for the user and make it an Industry standard which can be used to develop IoT enabled systems with a few button clicks.
We are trying to bring our IoT products (hardware and software) to life and to masses at a low cost. As a proof of concept we deployed the platform in the above project…
We are seeking funds to push the project even further and for large scale production of both hardware and software. @Community we need your help!
