"Intelligent" plug from Sony, recognizes and manages the consumption of electrical devices [Videos]


Nowadays we are used to charge our devices directly from the USB ports or inductive chargers, but in any case, the energy source remains the classic outlet that despite the rise of technology has not changed at all in recent decades.






However, Sony believes that they can make major changes and that's why preparing a new "smart" plug, besides the management and monitoring power consumption of each device can be used in public places (airports, shopping etc.) of devices for charging a fee.




Of course, it does not sound very positive, but the idea probably is not so much charging small gadgets (minimum consumption), the charging electric cars or motorcycles that are expected to fill the streets in the future.


What seems most interesting is the energy management system. For example, the user can monitor each time which devices are connected to which outlets and how much energy they consume at the time. Moreover, the system checks its own means consumption of specific devices and can close some of the plugs to prevent the "burning" of a security (or a larger scale to prevent a blackout), selecting those that are not important (eg . a TV from a refrigerator).





Sony Authentication Power Outlet Recognizes ...
The Sony is preparing two different types of such "smart" socket. The first type has a NFC system thus has the ability to read a card from close range for triggering the plug. Of course, at present there are no electrical devices with integrated card NFC, but if you accept the technology will find a suitable way. The second formula uses the technology "RFID Over Power Line", with information to enable plug and energy management to pass through the power cord. In this case, the electrical device should have a RFID tag to read the information.


Definitely take long to see this in practice, and neither the Sony has not decided when it will launch. Besides, the company's objective is to discuss with other manufacturers of electrical and electronic devices to sense such a development. We hope to become a reality before 2030, as he tells us the following concept:
