Bluetooth Dongle for Pumps
Develco developed Bluetooth dongle, called MI401 ALPHA Reader, which is communicating with the app Grundfos GO Balance. The Alpha Reader is attached to the front of the pump which allows the reading of light signals from the pump and sends the data to the app. The Alpha Reader communicates via Bluetooth Low Energy. This solution was chosen, as it provides a long battery life, easy connection to any type of smartphone and eliminates the problem of signal range.
Responsible for All Phases
Develco was in charge of all phases in the Alpha Reader development process and also took care of a production, choosing GPV Asia as the EMS provider.
Develco took responsibility of all the development and production start-up of the Alpha Reader and met the stated time requirements. Therefore, Grundfos was ready to launch their new balancing system on time. Together with the Alpha Reader, balancing of the heating system becomes much easier, more accurate and reliable.
