In 2019 Sequence Digital created a prototype outdoor
industrial temperature monitor for the City of Greater Geelong's Garden
Organics Processing Facility in Anakie.
They are robust, solar powered and internet connected with extremely simple and reliable operation at the core of their design. A grant was provided to Sequence Digital to develop their remote monitoring system for combustible materials (e.g. organics and other recovered materials), to achieve processing efficiencies and improve safety on sites.
For over two years the Sequence Digital devices have
reliably gathered the internal temperature of 6metre wide, potentially
combustible, compost stockpiles. This level of monitoring happens 24/7 and multiple times per hour.
The data is accessible via a cloud-based console where site management can be
alerted to higher than normal temperatures and take early action to cool down
The goal of the funding support provided to Sequence
Digital by Cleantech Innovations Geelong was to help with the redesign of the
product to meet required Australian regulatory standards for electrical goods.
The product development project included:
environmental monitoring in tough remote situations
- early detection
devices capable of alerting people/organisations of risk
information in a readily accessible and user friendly format
organisations report on and implement regulatory requirements.
Without the Cleantech Innovations Geelong funding the
project could not have gone this far. As a direct result Sequence Digital is
able to invest further time and money into making corrections to their product, and
completing a second round of testing.
This project is one of several product development
projects which have achieved positive economic outcomes for the Greater Geelong
