Energy managment

As already described above the implementation of an energy management system (EnMS) is essential for achieving the targets of energy saving. In the smallest case scenario this solution consists of a control unit for recording, logging and displaying the energy consumption, which is placed directly on the machine or system. The interfaces for measuring the energy consumption are detected via distributed decentralized I/O modules, such as VIPA SLIO. The existing energy meters and measurement devices such as electric and gas meters, but also water meters, compressed air meters etc. continue to be used as much as possible. The data of the different measuring points are transmitted to the control unit via Ethernet that is usually already available. Complete data logging, recording and backup is performed centrally in an SQL database. This creates a higher security and availability of data that are saved by the on-site IT infrastructure. This module („Out-of-the-Box!“) allows an energy management in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001. It enables logging, measuring and monitoring of energy consumptions and the fast analysis of the main cost causers or in other words:

  • Energy management
  • Energy monitoring
  • Energy measurement
