Height clearance of power lines closely monitored
Posted 27 December 2017
Every European Digital has developed and delivered to a leading DSO a sensor for measurement of distance between the lowest point of power lines and the ground. This sensor can be easily installed on a power line while it is powered on and can send the height clearance information wirelessly over a distance of up to 30 km with no external power. The solution will be implemented in the sensitive places to ensure public safety and improve optimization of the power grid.
Smartmetering for energy efficiency
Posted 18 October 2017
A town in Wielkopolskie voivodship (Poland) is currently implementing energy saving measures in all public buildings and facilities. One of the activities within this programme is instant remote metering of all points of media consumption, including gas, heat, electric energy and water consumption. Every European Digital is proud to be involved in the above programme by providing radio equipment and connectivity as well as know-how for the purpose of smartmetering.
Smart postbox trial successful
Posted 21 August 2017
After 4 months of intensive prototyping and testing, Every European Digital’s team has delivered a retrofit transforming solution to existing Poczta Polska’s red postboxes. The solution is capable of sensing letters being dropped into the postboxes and detecting postboxes being emptied by the postmen. Data about these events can be transmitted wirelessly to the relevant departments within Poczta Polska, to improve logistics processes, reduce their cost and improve service quality. The retrofit sensors do not need external power, which allows the solution to be implemented at the very low cost throughout the country.
POWER LINES UNDER CONTROL
Posted 26 June 2017
Energy distributors own huge infrastructure that was built throughout the country and needs to be looked after in order to be efficiently used. Every European Digital has been selected to provide pilot implementation of power line monitoring solution to the Poland’s leading DSO. Selected parameters of high and medium voltage lines will be instantly monitored and the information collected will be sent wirelessly to the grid management unit. The solution may bring many benefits to the DSO, including reduction of power outages and cut-offs.
POSTBOXES WILL BECOME SMART
Posted 21 April 2017
Every European Digital will transform red collection postboxes of Poczta Polska (the postboxes used for outgoing mail) into smart postboxes. Selected postboxes will sense letters dropped into them and provide this information wirelessly to the logistics department so that letter collection logistics can be optimized.
The first phase of the project, starting now, is aimed at prototyping the solution and testing it in the real environment.
COLD CHAIN CLOSELY MONITORED

EVERY EUROPEAN DIGITAL AT GOOGLE CAMPUS
Posted 22 April 2016
On 21 April 2016, a representative of Every European Digital has presented a new product called IOTA Guardian at Corporate Demo Day organized at Google Campus in Warsaw by D-RAFT. The Guardian is a a smart sensor that monitors status of objects and recognises certain motion as suspected (i.e. typical for unauthorised intervention or manipulation) while filtering out motion that can be assumed as „natural” for this object. The main feature of this device is its independence from power supply allowing uninterrupted and maintenance-free service for over 10 years. The new product has attracted a lot of interest from the audience.
