November 2020. 3rd US Patent Granted to KLATU.

KLATU Patent San Diego, CA, November 17, 2020 — The US Patent and Trademark Office has awarded KLATU Networks™ its third patent for benchmark scoring the mechanical health, reliability, and energy efficiency of cold-storage equipment using vibration sensors. When combined with previously issued patents for temperature and current, the addition of vibration sensing enables KLATU to determine with greater precision the early onset of mechanical stress and wasted energy in pumps, motors and HVAC equipment as well as refrigeration equipment.

TRAXX/EKG™, KLATU’s cloud application for asset monitoring, alarming, energy bench-marking and predictive failure analytics is widely deployed as a mission critical application for managing deep-frozen and laboratory refrigeration systems in eight of the top ten largest biopharma companies in the U.S.

TRAXX/Score™, a proprietary metric developed by KLATU and similar to FICO® score, is used by KLATU customers to make smarter repair, purchase, and asset retirement decisions based on objective measures of asset health, reliability and energy consumption.

KLATU’S latest Wi-Fi sensor platform provides low-cost connectivity with TRAXX™, a powerful cloud-based predictive failure analytics platform for monitoring the real-time status, health and energy efficiency of refrigeration and incubation equipment. KLATU Networks, Inc. has launched PiPer, a new low-cost multi-probe Wi-Fi sensor device called a Mote, which connects mission critical cold-storage and incubation equipment with TRAXX, KLATU's patented, cloud- based predictive failure analytics system. With payback of less than three years, the PiPer platform is a new tool enabling the transformation from old school Fail and Fix set-point monitoring, to modern Predict and Prevent™ maintenance practices.

PiPer is a proven device that enables proactive management of mission critical assets – extending service life, reducing repair costs, predicting failures, and ultimately avoiding catastrophes. PiPer Motes are low cost, wireless sensor devices that connect lab equipment to TRAXXCloud™ , a powerful analytical platform for predictive and real-time monitoring. PiPer transforms a Raspberry Pi into an IoT multi-probe sensor device with the power of a desktop computer by the addition of industrial grade USB sensors and KLATU’s TRAXX/OSTM software. Using existing Wi-Fi infrastructure for sensor-to-cloud communications and compatibility that supports WEP/WPA/WPA2 security protocols, KLATU provides the industry’s most reliable system as measured in terms of uptime.

Rick Kriss, KLATU’s Chief Executive Officer, described PiPer as a low-cost option for deploying IoT  connectivity across an organization’s equipment, based on the ubiquitous Raspberry Pi. According to Kriss, Raspberry Pi has an installed base of 30 million devices; it is used in thousands of commercial applications and is widely available for easy access to the powerful TRAXXCloud.

KLATU Networks, Inc. delivers wireless sensor network solutions helping Life Sciences companies optimize
  the management of cold storage assets and other mission critical laboratory equipment. Our products enable customers to manage risk, reduce operating costs, achieve energy savings, and sustain near-zero breakdown performance by transforming traditional maintenance practices from Fail and Fix maintenance practices to Predict and Prevent methodologies.
