Ermes System

Ermes System is the latest product in the Smart Cities line that has allowed Umpi to integrate its historical and authoritative leadership on the powerline with radio / wireless technology (LoRa, NB IoT) in order to offer its customers the best of both technologies.
Thanks to its innovative technological solutions, Ermes System transforms public lighting systems into the most extensive communication network in the urban and suburban area.

A new intelligent network....

Remote control up to the single light point

Ermes System constantly monitors each light point of the lighting system.

In this way it is possible to monitor the lamp operating status h24 and to detect any anomalies or faults in detail.

Radio technology advantages

Through the radio transmission technique use, Ermes System communicates with the single lamp post, without having to add new and expensive wiring. The system can thus decide flexibly, in which zone and, at what time, to send commands to the light point for switching on, off or reducing the luminous flux, in addition to receiving information on the lamp status. The advantages of using radio technology are:

  • the possibility of using radio technology on systems that are not fully managed (only a few lamps in the plant can be equipped with a remote control system)
  • the possibility of managing different systems with a single concentrator
  • a standardized protocol, which allows interoperability between different systems
  • the possibility of integrating battery measurement systems

Save and respect the environment

Ermes System helps to respect the environment and the objectives set by international treaties.

Through energy saving and scheduled maintenance, it limits the consumption of fossil fuels reducing pollution and the release of dangerous gases into the atmosphere.

With the immediate reporting of failures, it also eliminates possible air polluting caused by gases present inside the lamp. It also reduces light pollution thanks to the possibility of deciding when to switch on, switch off or reduce the light flux of each light point.

With Umpi X-perience everything under "remote control"

With Ermes System you can control and manage the lighting network with simplicity and convenience. As with the Minos system, Ermes also uses the Umpi X-perience software which has been designed to offer all the advantages of the internet world.

All it takes is a click and wherever you are you can visualize the status of the systems and check every light point with the maximum security.

Maximum safety and compatibility

Ermes System effectively meets all the requirements of safety and compatibility within the existing market. All cabinet and lamp control devices are designed to ensure immunity to atmospheric agents and can withstand the high temperatures of desertic enviroments. The modules of the system are totally compatible with electrical panels and lamps of all types, power and brand.

Any failure or tampering with the Ermes System devices does not alter the lighting system that continues to operate normally.

Extreme versatility

Cities, railway stations, highways, airports, ports, parking lots, sports facilities. Where there is a lighting network and a light point, Ermes System can create savings, efficiency and new services, guaranteeing maximum compatibility with the existing technical reality in any application area.

Ermes-E System

Ermes-E System is the line developed by UMPI to respond to requests from extra EU countries where frequencies and radio communication infrastructures are often different.

The Umpi proposal doesn’t knows territorial boundaries and can be customized to the different needs of the various countries. In North and South America Umpi is already present with the Ermes-E line based on radio systems with a transmission frequency of 915MHz and on the LTE CAT M1 / NB2 telephone network.

...and not only....

Not just light, a new intelligent network

hanks to its innovative technological solutions, Ermes System transforms the lighting network into the most widespread communication infrastructure already present on the territory and the lamp post in a new intelligent support able to integrate public utility services to make cities more Smart, safe and eco-friendly.
