Ronds Innotech, a start up company based in Trivandrum’s Technopark, has developed a solar-powered inverter which can be controlled and monitored by Android or iOS smart phones. The application “Ronds C Tracker” used for the smartphone is available free at the App Store.
By connecting it to the phone one can know the details of charging, discharging, performance, operations history and usage of the inverter. GSM based remote maintenance, reduced amount of electricity, extended battery life, automated power source selection and remote monitoring without Internet are the other features of the solar inverter.
The inverter avoids charging during the Kerala State Electricity Board-stipulated peak time (6pm -10pm) using the mechanism of peak load management. During daytime, the automated power source selection (APSS) mechanism directly runs the applications from sunlight without taking power from AC Mains supply, thereby cutting down on the power bill.
During night or if the load connected requires more power, it has the ability to change the power source to grid supply.
“The product will be available initially in south India and then expanded to other markets. The price range is Rs.42, 000 with total implementation cost. We will be offering OEM (Original equipment Manufacturer) services as per the requirement.” said Sijo Joseph, CEO, Ronds Innotech.
In 2012, Ronds had debuted a Smart Solar Inverter equipped with remote assistance was a great success. Their next aim is to develop a smart connectivity with low cost which can connect machines under a central control unit.
