SOLAR HUB

The Solar HUB is an intelligent solar powered infrastructure that incorporates environmental sensors in order to measure pollutant emissions. It has electronic and communication devices to offer Environmental Data as a Service.

Standalone/Hybrid

The Solar HUB can operate in stand-alone or hybrid mode. The standalone version uses only solar energy to power the sensors, communication module and LED modules. And, the hybrid version primarily works with solar power, but when required, it automatically connects to the power grid.

Sensors Customization

The Solar HUB allows users to incorporate different types of environmental sensors to meet the needs of municipalities. From air pollution sensors such as NO2, SO2, O3, PM10, PM2.5, noise pollution sensors to Carbon Dioxide sensors for the control of greenhouse gases, as well as meteorological sensors such as Temperature, Pressure, Relative Humidity, Solar Radiation, UV Radiation and wind sensors. Each Solar HUB can be customized by choosing the sensors of interest with a maximum of up to 8 sensors.

Easy integration and scalability

The deployment of the infrastructure can be done through a Small Pilot, Medium Pilot, or Smart City Network, depending on the number of units installed. This deployment allows monitoring strategic points, such as areas with important atmospheric emissions, or even emission points, i.e., monitoring points of pollutants once they have gone through a process of atmospheric transmission. The easy scalability allows to grow in magnitude attending to the demands and increasing the capillarity of data and the representation of the area.

Design

Unique dome-shaped solar infrastructure on the market. One of the most innovative components of the Solar HUB is the dome-shaped photovoltaic panel that maximizes solar energy collection regardless of the sun’s position. Solar energy is stored in a 480 Watt LiFePO4 battery that powers environmental sensors, LED lighting system, IoT devices and controls internal electronics. During the testing period of our R&D, new materials and production processes were evaluated. The industrial design of the Solar HUB was engineered to enable mass production and reduce costs. The PV dome was divided into 8 sub-modules, allowing easy installation and maintenance to easily deploy the solution in cities and private companies.

Easy installation

The Solar HUB has been designed to have a very simple Plug&Play installation of the components. The product is shipped sub-assembled and in a few steps the base is assembled with the central structure and the dome. The Solar HUB is mounted on a commercially available or previously installed pole to replace old street lights. Once the components are connected, the Solar HUB starts sending data to the Cloud using LoRa WAN, WIFI, ESP-MESH or 3G/4G/5G communication technology.
