By aggregating data from various devices or software at the field or at various levels in OT and IT systems regardless of communication protocol or the interfaces exposed, Kalki IoT based energy monitoring system manages the energy flow in a very effective way. Developed by Kalki, this IoT platform for energy monitoring and controlling is specifically meant for taking full control over the devices and systems, handling the data at a fundamental & granular level.
Kalki.io: An Intelligent Solution for Data collection
Kalki.io IoT based energy monitoring system is built with the main three key attributes of handling the data- Connect, Manage and Integrate.
Connect: Platform can connect directly to field-level devices and to enterprise-level software on various communication interfaces build in the platform or using edge software called Kalki.io Edge (KIOE). kalki.io supports many legacies and standards-based industry/utility protocols as well as new IoT protocols for field data acquisition and control. Cloud and edge platforms together can connect more than 10000+ types of devices on 100+ protocols and collect operational, non-operational, and diagnostic data, and can manage most of those devices remotely.
Manage: Kalki IoT platform for energy stores and manages the collected data. It creates a single secure data source accessible by third-party applications. Also, these data can be presented to users using inbuild visualization modules including dashboards, reports, notification channels. With the inbuilt Identity and Access Management service, kalki.io can also be used for secure remote device management which includes programming, configuration or changing the settings of field devices. Firmware updates and roll-out management would also be an integral function of device management. Role-based access control, data encryption, audit-trial and security logs are integral parts of this function.
Integrate: kalki.io platform exposes REST APIs and/or data-sources for integrating with any IT systems. With the inbuild protocol engine, data can also be shared with the OT system over telemetry and automation /SCADA protocols. You could also make use of standard connectors specifically made for popular software systems for ERP, Historian and Billing systems.
