Inductive Automation – Firebrand Award

At Inductive Automation’s Ignition Community Conference (ICC) 2017 Eramosa was presented the Gold Firebrand Award for Transformative Projects. The winning project was completed for Canadian Solar Solutions and connected numerous systems for a brighter solar future. This project involved working with Canadian Solar to create CSEye — a custom hybrid asset performance monitoring and computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) application for the solar photovoltaic (PV) operations & maintenance sector of the renewable power-generating market. CSEye is a comprehensive tool providing value to stakeholders at all levels of the Canadian Solar operations & maintenance group. Ignition provided a customizable application development environment providing full access to critical operational data from various existing SCADA architectures while allowing the project to scale as needs arose. By using Ignition Eramosa was able to solve the problem of disjointed legacy systems, providing a single application environment. The application has several benefits to the project Owner including cost-effective licensing that scales, reliable historical data feeds for near real-time analysis, modern communication protocols such as OPC-UA, Modbus, EthernetIP , Siemens Ethernet, and RESTful web services as well as standardized charting tools, UDT structures and Python scripting for database queries.
