BDMA Conference 2022: The roadmap to sustainable resilience

BDMA 2022

On the 29th and 30th of June, Caption Data exhibited as sponsors of the BDMA Conference 2022: The roadmap to sustainable resilience.

The conference’s theme focused on ‘The roadmap to sustainable resilience’, and explored what the brave new world of the water damage restoration industry needs to look like, and the necessary changes required to secure a bright future.

The water damage industry is a great case use of how intelligent IoT digital technology can be leveraged to uplift service levels. Caption Data has a long heritage spanning over 10 years in the water damage industry, delivering the latest in wireless, IoT technology on a key operational level into water-damaged properties.

The conference’s agenda around carbon footprint reduction and sustainability is hotter than ever. The water damage industry relies on the use of technicians to visit multiple properties, this results in high transportation costs. Optimising site visits can have a positive effect from a sustainability and cost perspective while optimising drying cycle times can be highly effective at reducing energy use.

What’s the ROI potential? 

Each piece of equipment can cost up to £5 per day to run and typically a single regular job will have 3 to 5 pieces of equipment running at any one time, which can substantially amount to large costs. The ability to be able to monitor across a large scale of properties for running costs through energy usage results in quick savings and financial ROI.

 The CDL Portable smart socket from Caption Data

This piece of intelligent equipment can be integrated with the NanoULTRA Matrix+ system and data transferred seamlessly. The CDL Portable smart socket monitors and collates the energy usage from any piece of equipment which is plugged in (up to 13amps), the next development will allow remote switching of equipment via the CDLSmartHub, this will allow property conditions to equalise before the final sign-off visit.

Features:

  • Plug & Play without the need for any additional wiring
  • Suitable for use in standard 13 Amp sockets (US and EU versions available also)
  • Turn on/off equipment remotely
  • Collect current, voltage, power, and electrical consumption data and support overload protection
  • Features an in-built battery backup for power outage alerts

Parameters:

Electric: Measurement Voltage (VAC), current (mA), Power Factor (%), Power (W), Power Consumption (kWh)

  • Operating Voltage (VAC)              100-250
  • Power frequency (Hz)                    50-60
  • Max Load Capacity                         10 A ~ 16 A (Optional_, 250VAC
  • Measurement Accuracy:               ±3%

 

CDL Managing director said ” It was great to network with the leading player’s in the industry over the two days. There was a mix of equipment suppliers and service providers showcasing innovative new technology. CDL likes to think we are making a positive contribution to sustainability within the damage restoration industry. There is more evidence that organisations are looking to innovate their operations and adapt with a more proactive approach which is great news”

As always it was great to support the BDMA as sponsors,  it is a very exciting time for the water damage sector and we look forward to being a part of its future.

The team at CDL would like to congratulate Richfords Fire and Flood for picking up the winner of Sustainable Project of the year: Commercial Property, at the BDMA (British Damage Management Association) Awards 2022.

As sponsors of this award, it was an honour to present to such worthy winners.
