Energy Monitoring – Transparency and Control of Energy
Our additional function Energy Monitoring collects and visualizes production-related energy data. Process-related peak loads as well as energy wasters are easily identified.
The Most Important Functions at a Glance
- Comprehensive energy evaluation per article, order or over a given period of time
- Storage, acquisition, visualization and monitoring of energy data
- Display of apparent or reactive and active power, voltages, currents or flow rates
- Alerting when defined values are exceeded
Benefits for Your Corporate Success
- Permanent control of energy consumption
- Fast recognition of increased energy consumption, e.g. due to defects
- Detect process-related peak loads
- Identify “energy guzzlers”
- Continuous transparency in energy consumption
- Recognize saving potentials
- Post calculation of production orders including the energy needs
- Take into account energy aspects in investment decisions
Additional Function Energy Monitoring: In Detail
It is very likely that production is the division of your company with the highest energy consumption. Accordingly, it is of paramount importance to immediately identify possible savings. The FASTEC 4 PRO additional function Energy Monitoring supports you with the acquisition, visualization and evaluation of energy data. With the newly gained transparency about energy consumption you can profit from deriving reliable saving potentials. In this way you not only save valuable resources, you are also able to include the energy consumption in detail in your post calculation of the production orders.
You have several options to collect energy data. Special I/O plug-in modules can quickly and easily be connected to existing I/O modules for machine data acquisition. What is more, you are able to connect with an interface to a widely used multi-function measuring device SENTRON PAC by the company Siemens. Alternatively, you can rely on S0 interfaces through which your data is consistently recorded and then clearly assigned to the respective consumers. These can be machines, machine units, production areas or even your entire factory.
You increase the benefits of the FASTEC 4 PRO additional function Energy Monitoring additionally if you decide to combine it with other MES modules. An attractive example is the MES module Production Data Acquisition (PDA), with which you can also generate order-related evaluations. For environmental audits, you receive order and article-related CO2 balances.
