Intelligent Compactors & Optimized Waste Management
We create value for any organization responsible for waste collection saving as much as 60% of all waste pick-ups by ensuring pickups are only initiated and completed when a bin is full. By eliminating unnecessary pickups Pandora not only saves money, but also helps to green the environment, with a typical payback of less than 1 year. In addition Pandora also facilitates proactive maintenance and remote diagnostics of compactors, by initiating service calls for conditions like low oil alert, and by avoiding service calls using remote diagnostics indicating, for example, hose disconnected.
Pandora Intelligent Networks platform (Pandora) utilizes machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless communications to allow individual machines to remotely indicate if they are working correctly and efficiently. This enables organizations to achieve cost savings in waste management. First, Pandora will schedule pick-ups only when compactors reach a specified fullness level, eliminating the cost of unnecessary collections. Second, Pandora makes information accessible to multiple stakeholders throughout an organization. Third, Pandora tracks key parameters of compactors and balers, such as ram pressure, operating time, number of bales, cycles, etc., and tracks equipment and system performance over time. By tracking compactor performance, service calls can be scheduled well in advance of an actual breakdown, thus reducing repair costs and leading fewer replacements, and patterns or trends can be identified among a network of machines. Finally, the remote sensing equipment enables the user to detect and rectify compactor misuse – a common cause of breakdown.
