Argentum's Plug-and-Play System

Our System Distributes Digital Current™

What is Digital Current™?

Digital Current™ is an electrical system that enables the inherently safe distribution of direct current (DC) power at high voltages.

It's "digital" because an onboard computer monitors the power cables 1000s of times a second for defined safety parameters, stopping power flow if any type of fault is detected.

The system allows our customers to save on capital project costs (especially related to wiring).

Our customers also benefit from energy savings and reduced maintenance cost for LED lights and HVAC because our Digital Current™ technology eliminates inefficient AC to DC conversions.

Better Than Power over Ethernet (PoE)

All the benefits of PoE, without the 100W max power limitation, Ethernet cables, or network switches.

Ethernet cable with an X through it to show that the Argentum system doesn't require ethernet cables

CABLE AGNOSTIC

No need for Ethernet cables; use any certified two conductor cable.

Lighting bolt to represent high voltages

SAFE, HIGHER VOLTAGES

Digital Curret™ can go up to 400 Volts DC, but still has zero risk of electrical shock or fire. This also means that no conduit is necessary.

MORE COST EFFECTIVE TO INSTALL

All the benefits of PoE systems, without the power limits, no need for Ethernet cables, and 1/5th the hardware cost.

AC Power Enters the Main Electrical Distribution Panel

Most electrical grids distribute Alternating Current (AC) electricity, but 80% of modern devices need Direct Current (DC) power.

AC to DC Conversion

The Argentum intelligent DC sub panel (connected to your building's electrical panel) makes a single, highly efficient, conversion from AC to DC power.

Intelligent Drivers Distribute DC Power

Argentum's SpacrNodes intelligently and safely distribute DC power to LED fixtures and HVAC motors. They also form a wireless mesh network for sensors and remote controls.

Devices Receive DC Power

This eliminates the inefficient conversions from AC-to-DC that would've otherwise been made at the load level by device drivers.

Control Everything with Wireless Switches

Use Argentum's SpacrSwitch as a remote or wall mounted switch to adjust lighting and HVAC operation.

Building automation and Digital Twin Software Brings Everything Together

Control your building systems from a cloud (or on-premise) based dashboard, and automate based on real-time sensor data.

See how this could add value to your building.

"The team at Argentum has been great to work with and have been quick to respond to our questions. We've been using the Spacr product and interface for over 6-months now and have been happy with the flexibility and control it's enabled us to operate our system"

- ANDREW LEE, PRESIDENT, INNOVIA GEO CORP.

"We just installed new state of the art sensors from Argentum as a pilot project in Ryerson CUI. The sensors are very slick and the user interface is very simple to use, although powerful. Thank you to Bolis and Sagar for this install and looking forward to your next innovations. You are the future."

- JEAN FRANCOIS LANDRY, P.ENG., BEMP, CEM, WELL AP, FACILITIES ENGINEERING, RYERSON UNIVERSITY

"We are installing sensors in selected conference rooms and volunteered workstations that will anonymously monitor occupancy and environmental conditions. We’re excited to be collaborating with Argentum Electronics, a Toronto-based start-up that is providing the sensors."

- H.H. ANGUS AND ASSOCIATES

"Please watch Argentum, they have some very exciting and innovative products and solutions for the building industry. Very focused on energy savings and driving a zero carbon building industry!"

- ZENON RADEWYCH, PRINCIPAL, WZMH ARCHITECTS
