SMARTER THAN EVER.
The wiu opt is a central control unit that combines highly innovative Olmatic Power Tracking with essential core functions of our wiu series . Our Central Control Unit forms the required headquarters in the energy management system, which, by software implementation of artificial intelligence, distributes the maximum available energy amount X by the performance modules to the individual energy consumers within the system. This allows individual system components to be regulated in their performance and the energy generated from them to be distributed to other components. By using the wiu opt you can achieve a saving of >30% energy on every electronic consumer with a conventional power source. In combination with renewable energy, you can even achieve a maximum self-sufficiency of 100% in the energy sector. In contrast to conventional energy management systems, it is characterized above all by the additional networking of the smart grid at the supply level, which enables continuous power regulation (0-100) and power distribution.
HIGHLY INNOVATIVE ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Reach 100% self-sufficiency through this combination!
Energy is a central concept of the natural sciences and plays a central role in all areas of physics, technology, chemistry, biology and economics. People use this energy in a variety of ways and in various forms of energy, such as kinetic energy, chemical energy or electrical energy. According to the energy conservation law, the total energy of a closed system remains constant over the entire period and can neither be increased nor reduced. In order to use the energy available to us with a maximum possible efficiency, this maximum amount X of energy must be distributed dynamically and intelligently to the individual energy consumers of the system.
The prime example of such an Energy Management System is the development of humans and their human organism, in which all components are networked with each other via a central nervous system of nerve fibers and bloodstreams and thereby realize an optimal energy metabolism. The original source of energy of each life – the solar radiation – chemically stored in a transformed form, must release by the body again and convert into mechanical energy – muscular movement. The body needs this energy for the basic functions of life support – heartbeat, breathing, digestion, brain activity, maintaining body temperature and physical activity. Again, the maximum amount of X energy which our energy stores provides must always be dynamically and intelligently distributed between each energy consumer to maintain the basic life support functions. The intelligence of the central nervous system decides, based on empirical values and real-time analyzes, which energy consumers are regulated in their performance and which are increased – e.g. how much blood the heart must pump to the working muscles. By doing so, an energy metabolism is achieved with the highest efficiency and without losses.
The identical functional scheme is used by the highly innovative Olmatic Power Tracking method (short “OPT“) based on electrical energy in all electronic systems in industrial and private applications. To illustrate a direct example, robotics systems that have already implemented the Energy Management System in the form of OPT are used. For this purpose, a central control unit forms the central nervous system required in the example “human”, which realizes the distribution of the maximum available energy amount X by the power modules to the individual energy consumers within the system through the software implementation of an Artificial Intelligence. As a result, individual system components or “nerve cords and bloodstreams” can be regulated in their performance and the resulting energy distributed to other components. For here too, the law of energy conservation applies – the energy available is always constant and can neither be increased nor reduced. Insofar as individual components are reduced in terms of energy consumption, the energy they generate must be redistributed to other components in order to achieve maximum efficiency and thereby maximize energy savings. The resulting added value is obvious – further uses of surplus energy in the form of Energy Sharing and enormous cost savings for all electrical consumers. The use of the Olmatic Power Tracking achieves on average of >30% energy savings in comparison to conventional methods and, with an optimal design in the use of Regenerative Energy sources, achieves up to 100% self-sufficiency.

OPERATION VIA REGENERATIVE ENERGY SOURCES?
The wiu series is optimized for long-term use via renewable energy sources. The energy-saving concept has been explicitly designed for this purpose, yet the wiu series has powerful processors and enough memory. Save energy, costs and maintenance – The “wiu” series includes energy-saving and waterproof central control units for a highly efficient 24/7 continuous operation.
The robust and environmentally friendly mini-IPCs have powerful processors as well as enough work and hard drive storage. Thanks to the fanless concept and the implemented ECO design guideline, they are also low-noise and energy-saving.
The minimally maintained case and the simultaneous design with all common interfaces allow optimal use in mobile and sophisticated as well as harsh environments.
