Data Monitoring

In this age of the internet of things, Star Refrigeration has for some time recognised the importance of data. It is for this reason we invested in using real time data for the optimisation of refrigeration plants. Drawing on Star Refrigeration’s 50 years of industry experience, a new business unit, Star Data Analytics (SDA), was set up to fill a gap in the market for strategic insight data services. A team of award-winning senior refrigeration consultants, field engineers and software engineers joined efforts to develop Ethos, a one-of-a-kind bespoke data driven analysis software. The performance optimisation provided by Ethos finds ways for end users to reduce energy costs and CO2 emissions.

Our standalone equipment collects relevant data from your refrigeration plant by a combination of the following: a data logger with sensors, a network based data logger or a web API. Ethos analysis software then applies the live site data to a ‘dynamic digital twin’ of the cooling or heating plant to measure the gap between the ideal and the actual operating conditions. This enables it to identify problems and suggest corrective actions to reduce energy usage and meet environmental goals. These insights are displayed on an online dashboard, along with energy usage data and equipment performance alerts to warn of any irregular behaviour. They also provide advice on specific and immediate actions to prevent unforeseen maintenance and energy costs.
