VPC Asia’s SmartConnect was able to reduce power usage up to 30% or more. When connected to a Vending Machine Smart Connect provided a accurate look into the normal power/temperature cycles in the drink machine.
Monitoring and adjusting drink machine cycles allowed VPC Asia’s team to develop a power setting map that helped reduce the power costs by more than 30%. Considering there are 2 million Vending Machines, deployed at scale this Power Monitoring feature would significantly reduce power country wide.
Temperature Overshoot – Overshoot is when a A/C or compressor continues to running after reaching set point temperature. SmartConnect can help reduce overshoot further reducing power usage. This is accomplished by predicting the overshoot amount and stopping the compressor ahead of time.
