Quanergy and PowerStack Partner to Offer Q-Track with Off-grid Smart Poles

Provides Highly Accurate and Cost-Efficient Security Solution for Remote Critical Infrastructure Sites

Quanergy Solutions, a leading provider of 3D LiDAR security solutions, has established a strategic partnership with PowerStack, the global leader in off-grid smart power poles. This collaboration provides a seamlessly integrated solution uniquely poised to tackle intricate security challenges faced by remote critical infrastructure environments, including utilities, data centers and more. Often located in remote areas without access to power or running infrastructure, these locations typically rely on legacy physical security solutions that are costly to deploy, inaccurate in challenging remote locations, and generate excessive, costly false alarms. The technology alliance between Quanergy and PowerStack resolves all these issues and more. 

Quanergy’s Q-Track™ redefines physical security with a seamlessly integrated solution that combines Quanergy’s long-range 3D LiDAR sensors with advanced perception software. This solution provides users with hyper-accurate 3D intelligent proactive awareness to dramatically improve security operations and reduce false alarms. Quanergy Q-Track raises the bar by setting new benchmarks for event detection, object classification and tracking.

PowerStack modular solar poles are a sustainable, cost-effective way to power safety, security, and smart technologies for commercial and community projects. With totally off-grid, vertical solar, you can power lighting, cameras, wireless sensors, communications networks and more, all without the time or expense of running traditional electrical infrastructure. The unique modular design means PowerStack can be installed almost anywhere and is optimized to capture maximum sunlight for each location. Reliable, 24/7 power on the ground, which does not cost the earth. Installed in under an hour by a two-person team, built to last with a 10-year warranty, and delivering a 5-day battery back-up, PowerStack is solar, reimagined.

The integration allows remote sites to deploy Quanergy’s Q-Track solution without the need to run AC power supply or data infrastructure. As a result, users can leverage a highly secure, automated security solution that can consistently and reliably protect a remote facility. More importantly, the solution will significantly reduce the number of false alerts, saving customers significant costs associated with on-site guard services.

“Time and time again we run into scenarios with our clients in which infrastructure for remote locations is the costliest component of a deployment,” said Gerald Becker, vice president of market development and alliances at Quanergy. “Power and data are not always available, and that’s where PowerStack’s offerings are ideal, providing an easy to install and renewable energy source for Q-Track installations in the most difficult remote environments.” 

“Technology partnerships, like this one with Quanergy, are key to our success at PowerStack,” said Jeremy Sigmon, COO at PowerStack. “We provide the sustainable power option, or the source for remote energy supply, and by integrating with cutting-edge technologies like the Quanergy Q-Track™, customers get a reliable, holistic solution that saves them time and expense. We see so many projects where accessing power is a challenge, and we are excited to work with Quanergy on further solutions in future.”
