Press Release – February 2022 – Paris, France
Ellenex, leading Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) device manufacturer, based in Australia, and covering wide range of industrial applications from farming to oil & gas or smart cities, has joined forces with Actility as a Channel Partner to broaden their offer with ThingPark® solutions.
Ellenex is a pioneer engineering and technology company creating new ground in the industrial internet of things (IIoT) space. This company designs and manufactures low power sensors, operating systems, and software platforms to address challenges on industrial asset monitoring in remote areas. With more than 20 years of experience in design, manufacturing, and integration, Ellenex was one of the first companies to introduce integrated LPWAN sensors and solutions to the market, offering one of the widest ranges of LPWAN measurement systems to monitor industrial assets in water and wastewater, agriculture and farming, smart cities and HVAC, transport and logistics, mining and construction, and oil and gas.
Ellenex believes industrial IoT solutions need to be modular, integrable, and application-centric to make them scalable and profitable for clients. Therefore, modularity and integrability is their philosophy and one of their key differentiators. This company offers over 200 LPWAN products over, which can be found on Actility’s ThingPark Market, and forms the widest range of industrial use cases in the market, selling over 60 pre-configured solutions. Ellenex reaches far away from Australia, where it is based, selling their products to over 500 international companies in over 50 countries, where they work with more than 20 different network providers.
This modular and integrable architecture found in their hardware-software framework, allows to offer more complex solutions to monitor pressure and level completed by a wide range of parameter (temperature, water quality, flow, location, load, and strain, among others) and feed the data to any other third-party platform or control / SCADA system. This is attractive for industries with distributed network of assets in remote areas to address their monitoring challenges at a much lower cost compared to other technologies in the market.
By partnering with Actility, Ellenex finds an ally which can provide the necessary LoRaWAN connectivity, and which can be accompanied by a globalized platform, ThingkPark Enterprise, making the building of networks and infrastructures much easier and allowing customers to manage their own LoRaWAN gateways, adding sensors, monitoring devices, and all Ellenex’s offer. This grants the opportunity for customers to be able to control the flow of data and enabling the deployment of large-scale IoT projects in record timings.
Ellenex has made a successful move to develop more than 200 product variations based on low-power communication technologies (mainly NB IoT / LTE Cat M1, LoRaWAN and low power Satellite) and covers most of the potential applications for battery-operated industrial use cases, like wireless pressure, level, temperature, load, and flow monitoring systems, etc. Such a varied offer gives access to participate in uncountable real-life use cases.
Recently Ellenex has worked on a flood and underground water level monitoring solution put in place for several utility companies and councils in Australia, Europe and the US. This deployment manages to monitor the level of rivers and underground water, minimizing the risk of flood damage, saving lives and unpredictable damage to public and private properties.
Ellenex also works on the health side of air filtering, with other use cases like the one deployed in Singapore, US and Thailand where inappropriate air flow in air handling units and ducts for cooling systems was leading to the increase of humidity inside the ducts and fungus formation. Monitorization of the air flow through integrated sensors lead to assure the essential air flow in the duct, minimizing the chances of this problem and preventing in habitants of high-rise buildings from a variety of respiratory problems.
Ellenex also counts with efficiency solutions put in place in the oil & gas management field. Their Diesel Delivery Management use-case helps workers daily to eliminate manual check of diesel availability in remote patrol tanks and prevents from leakage in farming and logistics deployments, cutting back in maintenance time and money costs.
These are just a few examples of all the industries touched by IIoT and low power technology, and are proof of the big differences in time and money saving small technological deployments can do.
“At Ellenex, we developed “composable IoT” framework and offer one of the widest ranges of LPWAN solutions for complex industrial applications, where “modularity” and “integrability” is demanded. LPWAN solutions are heavily relies on reliability, durability and scalability of the network. This partnership with Actility makes it possible to offer reliable and durable IIoT solutions at scale to global industrial clients.”
said Amin Shad, CEO at Ellenex
“We are delighted to be partnering with such a pioneering company which offers perfectly fitted devices for so many LoRaWAN-enabled use cases. We are happy to work together towards an even more connected industrial global infrastructure, while growing the LoRaWAN ecosystem through our collaboration.”
said Nicolas Jordan, COO at Actility
Ellenex, is a leading IIoT device manufacturer with strong beliefs that sensors and measurement systems are the most important parts of any process system and production line. With a combination of almost 2 decades experience in design and manufacturing of sensors and measurement systems and recent developments in IoT (Internet of Things) networks, Ellenex designed the first fully integrated and efficient LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) wireless pressure and level sensors for mass IoT applications and manufactures modular and highly integratable products to meet complex IIoT applications in the harsh environments. Ellenex’s new range of products opens new opportunities for industries to implement industrial internet of things (IIoT) in their production plants and service system easily with the lowest cost.
