Pre-close update, said:
That its "decisive action and substantial cost cutting" leaves the company in a strong position for 2010.
It has spent much time and effort in supporting prospective customers, with volume order confirmations expected in the new year.
Has successfully secured and maintained key partnerships, most recently with Future Electronics Inc, a top three worldwide electronic component distributor with divisions focussed on metering and lighting products.
Has successfully completed two equity placings to new and existing investors during the period, raising a total of 3.0 million of new money to fund working capital requirements to support customer trial orders and partnerships.
Over 4 Millions share were bought by directors during this month
For all this motives the shares at 1.15p are worth taking some aboard
lectricity Metering Networks
Electricity utilities and meter manufacturers are investigating ways of introducing Advanced Meter Reading (AMR) and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) to their businesses.
These technologies can significantly improve the information made available to energy service providers, including detailed energy usage profiles, diagnostic and status data from metering devices, and instantaneous usage from industrial and domestic consumers. This in turn helps to reduce the cost of taking readings, and prevent financial loss due to the fraudulent use of supplies. Load balancing can also be improved when information on instantaneous usage is provided. In addition consumers can benefit from improved information on their energy usage patterns by making better use of off-peak tariffs.
Cyan offers wireless Point-to-Point (P2P) and Meshing solutions for electricity AMR/AMI. Cyan's P2P solution use its ISM frequency band RF nodes (433/470/868/915/865 MHz). These allow a handheld meter reading device to directly communicate with each meter. Cyans meshing solution uses the same RF nodes to connect meters to a GPRS Gateway. A CyNet mesh network is formed around the gateway, which can be used to collate energy profiles, receive instantaneous readings, and send tariff updates to the meter. Cyan's GPRS Gateways can automatically monitor the mesh network and collect meter readings. Each GRPS Gateway has a RF node to connect to the local mesh network and GPRS modem for remote collection and monitoring from the backhaul system
Gas Metering Networks
A rise in energy prices and increasing focus on environmental issues has led to the demand for energy efficiency. As a result governments are legislating for the provision of Automated Meter Reading with a long term plan to move to fully Automated Metering Infrastructure
Cyan offers a wireless gas meter network solution that enables city wide deployment of wireless gas meters. The network uses Cyan's Cy-Net low power mesh network over ISM band (433/470/868/915/865 MHz). Each gas meter becomes an RF node on the network communicating with other RF nodes as well as mains powered concentrator gateways. The concentrators, Cyan's GPRS Gateways, automatically monitor the mesh network and collect readings from the meters.
Each GRPS Gateway has a RF node to connect to the local mesh network as well as GPRS for backhaul to remote central collection and monitoring system.
Cyan's range of gateways and radio nodes can be used in a wide variety of monitoring and control applications. The RF nodes have on board resources such as Analogue to Digital converters with 12-bit resolution, digital inputs and outputs, timers and counters.
These can be used with external circuitry to sense conditions such as temperature, humidity, and movement. The combination of these resources, the Cy-Net radio mesh, and GPRS gateway can then be used to report telemetry to a central point, and/or send control signals to each remote node.
Street and Tunnel Lighting
With the rise of energy pricing and new regulation, operators of public lighting systems are driven to reduce operating costs. These reductions can be achieved by remotely controlling each lamp and managing its brightness according to need and by decreasing maintenance requirements by detecting faults remotely.
Cyan's technologies and products provide a complete control and communications network and user interface to lighting manufacturers. This complete system solution allows lighting manufacturers to manufacture and sell RF controlled street and tunnel lighting systems.
