Ulefos and Xepto have cooperated on product development of concepts for water supply, manholes and connectivity, for several decades.
Both companies deliver solutions in extreme environments and work continuously on solutions that value-add each other’s products and services.
Xepto have worked with BNS for several years. BNS is the leading supplier of swap body and modular based container solutions in the Nordics, with products for a range of uses including containers for storage of explosives.
The authorities have set forward many requirements for the storage of explosives in containers. An important requirement is electronic surveillance with early warnings of break-ins and other attacks. BNS uses Xepto OnGuard exclusively for this purpose.
It is mandatory for containers used for storage of explosives to have an alarm agreement. Based on this Xepto has cooperated closely with Securitas Technology (former Stanley Security) and Avarn Security.
If the OnGuard’s sensors detect a break-in or sabotage, warnings are sent to the alarm company in real time.
Xepto uses Telenor as their primary supplier of communication solutions.
Since the very beginning in 2003, Xepto has experienced great adaptability to the requirements ser forward. Telenor’s solutions are utilized in both the OnGuard- and CityGuard product families.
EMD is a Sheffield-based IoT company that mainly specializes in development of technology within water and wastewater.
Xepto has had a close collaboration with EMD since 2006. First through the 7th Framework EU project Trackbox together with Posten/Bring, and later via the Advocate project under Eurostar's auspices together with Kongsberg Esco (now Ulefos Esco).
EMD has considerable experience in sensor development, particularly within Energy Harvesting via Piezo elements and self-propelled water quality sensors in collaboration with Severn Trent Water Ltd and Exceter University.
