OptiSigma provides several innovative products and services related to energy and environment. Examples of innovative products/services are: InSwitch – Low-cost ultra-compact electronic device, installed inside the motor terminal box. It can potentially replace the millions of traditional electromechanical contactors. The InSwitch performs soft-starting, intelligent connection-mode management (saving energy and improving power factor), advanced motor protection and fault diagnosis and remote control and monitoring/sensing. The Portuguese Electricity Company (EDP) awarded this product with an innovation prize of 50 k€ and evaluated this solution in 5 M€. IUVSense – National project aiming the local installation of a large number of low-cost solar-powered UVB displays as a measure to prevent excessive/dangerous solar exposure during outdoor activities. This project is officially supported “Liga Portuguesa Contra o Cancro” and funding from the “PT Foundation” is being negotiated. Most of the City Halls will install this devices in the sea and river beaches. Awards/Prizes: > 9º Concurso Poliempreende, 1º Prémio, Viseu, 2012 (12.5 k€); > Prémio EDP Inovação 2013, 1º Prémio, Lisboa, 2013 (50 k€); > Arrisca C 2012, Prémio I.S.A./Smart Ventures, Coimbra, 2013 (25 k€); > Arrisca C 2013, Prémios "Câmara Municipal de Coimbra", "Coimbra Inovação Parque", "Parque Tecnológico de Óbidos", "ANJE-Tech-Entrepreneurship" and "Garantia Mútua" na Categoria de Melhor Ideia de Negócio, Coimbra, 2014 (total equivalent to 10 k€).
