SMART TOWER CONTROL
reduces the probability of serious damages and collapses of the monitored metal constructions; it makes possible to intervene in real time if non-standard behaviors appear.
STC is a zero-to-none set-up system and is equipped with an easy-to-use portal, through which all of its functionalities can be managed.
STC with its own software, can be customized in a very fast and effective way. The STC experimentation phase began in 2013 and completed at the end of 2015 with vibrating table tests, carried out at the "Adriano Galli" laboratory of the Department of Structural Engineering of the Polytechnic and Basic Sciences School of the University of Naples Federico II who certified the results.
The first thing to analyze for each construction that’s monitored through the integrated STC system, are the available documents and the structural maintenance status so that the static and dynamic profiles can be defined.
STC is equipped with some peripheral units called ICU (I see You), an acronym for "Integrated Control Unit" which contains electronic devices and the latest generation sensors; the ICU is adhered to the metal construction using powerful magnets, enabling data to be collected from the daily tests launched remotely.
All the data collected through the ICUs are sent to the servers installed in the sole central control unit, at DEFA INGEGNERIA Ltd, they are constantly examined through models and ad hoc developed algorithms and then extensively analyzed by a highly qualified team of structural engineers. The data is validated by a scientific committee coordinated by the founder of STC, who boasts a consolidated 30-years know how in design of metal constructions for telecommunications, energy distribution and wind turbines. The Severity Code, customized according to the needs of the owner of the infrastructure park, allows, in compliance with the established Service Level Agreement (SLA), to define the alert levels, which companies or people to contact in case of actions or inspections, the opening and closing of any tickets and anything else necessary to ensure safety.
STC has a dedicated and easy-to-use web portal through which all of its functionalities can be managed. Once registered and authorized to consult the data, it can be accessed from a PC, tablet or smart phone (Android or Ios) connected to the Internet and perform setup, supervision and management operations. Through an accurate dashboard you can access information such as the state of health and the map of the residual load surfaces of every construction or of the entire park. For each monitored metal construction there is a summarized technical data report and you can check, via interactive satellite chart or map, if and where there are weather/structural problems or where they may occur in the future. The details of ICU activities, the immediate tests, history documents and all the graphical representations related to the recorded data, are accessible by navigating within the portal in a simple and intuitive way starting from the main dashboard.
