iPUNIX Technologies was founded by it's Managing Director Harry Degenaar in late 2002 specializing in the outsourcing of Java and Delphi
software Engineers working on ERP applications for the UNIX and LINUX operating platforms.
During 2009 iPUNIX embarked on the development of a Small Footprint Computer based Gateway using the Zigbee & WiFi communication protocols running on the Linux O/S
Managing our resources better; we have seen that with the recent Australian wide water crisis it was possible to get the Australian house holds to
cooperate with a better management of the water resources. Why can’t we do the same with the consumption of our power? Do we need to spend billions
of dollars on upgrading our power plants and worry more about the greenhouse effect? Harry is now with his 2 sons, Sebastian and Rob developing at
Modulite Solutions smart energy saving ZigBee® Gateways, Switches, Sensors
and smart software for large scale energy saving projects. With this system Modulight Solutions can implement Wireless Building Automation Control
for Lighting, Alarm, and (HVAC) energy intensive air conditioning systems. The Pixel Wireless Building Automation Gateway is the beginning of a
Smart Micro Power Grid, scalable from a single building to system-wide control of thousands of devices across a distributed enterprise.
Harry in synergy with his know-how in Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) production plant automation engineering has extensive experience in CAD, SAP,
Oracle, SQL DataBase and Citect-(SCADA/HMI). As a lead architect he worked on front and back-end LAN, intra / internet based applications building
complete ERP systems for manufacturing businesses to achieve an increase in productivity and decrease their manufacturing cost. In the mid 70's
Harry has done development work on the CP/M operating system, followed in the early 80's on MP/M-86, this (early network) turned a PC into a multi-user
multi-tasking machine capable of supporting multiple concurrent users using dumb terminals attached by serial ports.
This was followed by the late 80's with the CDOS386 operating system and from the early 90's he carried out development work on the Linux operating
platforms. He also specialized in propriety operating systems used in the industrial plant control and automation industries.
Harry now supports Ubuntu and Mint Linux both 64Bit computer operating systems based on the Debian GNU/Linux distribution.
