Digital transformation is a top priority for commercial businesses as they struggle to stay relevant and competitive in an increasingly crowded market. Supermarkets are no different, and one area where they often struggle is in managing their large number of refrigerators and freezers.
Supermarkets must be vigilant in ensuring that the temperatures are always maintained at the correct level to keep food fresh, without compromising too much on energy consumption. To address this challenge, Nexcom’s XPPC 10-100 offers a solution that not only controls and monitors cooling appliances, but also employs the power of AI at the edge and an IoT gateway.
Perform AI Locally
Powered by the Intel® Celeron® processor and DDR3L support of up to 8GB, this fanless touchscreen computer can perform AI tasks locally, without relying on cloud computing. Once food stockists have installed these into their cold storage units, they can detect temperature fluctuations, and adjust accordingly, to keep the units running at the optimal temperature without unnecessary power use.
IoT Gateway and Seamless Monitoring
The XPPC 10-100 is a slim bezel computer that offers a clear multi-touchscreen LCD panel. Through the HMI of the control panel, customers can monitor, operate, and control the temperature, humidity level, and lighting settings for their refrigerators and freezers. To further improve efficiencies, these settings can be programmed in advance based on business hours, helping to save labour costs and reduce up to 10% of total power consumption yearly.
While the XPPC-10-100 can perform AI tasks locally, it can also act as an IOT gateway, collecting and transmitting data from temperature, lighting, and sensor controllers to the cloud. With its COM port and RJ45 GbE, the XPPC 10-100 enables seamless connectivity and data transfer between the cooling appliances and the cloud. This means that business owners and operators can track and analyse granular data pertaining to their cooling units. Giving them unprecedented insight into their operations, and an ability to monitor performance and make informed decisions based on data-driven analytics.
The XPPC 10-100 is IP65 compliant, making it a perfect choice for supermarkets. It is a slim bezel computer that guarantees power efficiency and reduces costs, but also a versatile and intelligent solution that combines IoT gateway technologies, enabling businesses to stay competitive in the rapidly evolving digital landscape.
