It has been a while since we provided an update on the progress at Aloxy. Our startup has grown steadily and our focus on creating reliable data for valve position monitoring is still strong. We see that our customers appreciate this focus, as valve position monitoring remains a major global industry challenge and offering a reliable solution is a breakthrough for industrial IOT in O&G and chemical industries.
The team continues to grow and we welcomed two new developers in the last 6 months.
In addition to the European ATEX and CE, we have obtained FCC and ISED certification for RF in US and Canada in the beginning of this year, followed by FM approval for Div1Class2 (Explosion proof). Beside this we are particularly proud to have passed the ISO9001 certification and expect the certificate shortly.
We released an Android app to do firmware updates over NFC on our sensors and we will continue to develop this app to improve the usability.
We started over 10 new pilots with multinational (petro) chemical companies and the first larger roll outs at our early adopter customers are a fact.
Beside valve monitoring, the Aloxy Pulse can also be used on emergency showers, a dedicated algorithm has been developed to indicate whether the shower or eye wash is on or off and can be used to easily connect showers in brown field environments. Monitoring Emergency showers enables quick reaction when used and can be used to log regular opening according to local legislation.
After the summer a new Aloxy IIoT Hub version will be released, and we are excited about the new functionalities we will introduce in the second half year. Reliable data is the goal and adding functionalities to provide insights in connectivity, network quality and battery lifetime expectation are on the agenda to be introduced.
We continue to work with both LoRaWAN and DASH7 LPWAN protocols, each have their own characteristics making them the ideal solution in different circumstances. The Aloxy IIoT Hub now has an embedded LoRa Network server and runs beside the Aloxy Cloud also in our customer private cloud and stand alone in an on-premises environment.
Finally, we are also testing new prototypes as part of our roadmap to release new ATEX and FM approved LPWAN sensors to create more datapoints that can be included by our customers. We are also looking at different partnerships to create visualization and analytical applications on both valve positioning and emergency showers. The ecosystem is being build and this creates exiting new opportunities for all parties.
With the holidays in full swing, we look back at a successful first half year of 2021 and with most of us re-charging our batteries, we are dedicated to continuing our journey and look forward to the second half.
