An Energy Management System consolidates energy related data (sources, costs, control and monitoring points) into a data warehouse, and provides a platform for tools to easily access the data and obtain actionable information. The EMS makes data-driven information available so that the end user is able to perform in-depth diagnostics, engineering analysis, and monitoring in a small fraction of the time it took with earlier methods. By publishing information for consumption outside the traditional facilities management area, an EEMS supplies critical information to department heads, financial staff, and executive management as well.
There is a direct economic return. Most opportunities found in an energy survey have less than a two year payback. Some are immediate, such as load shifting or going to a new electric rate schedule.
Energy-related data comes from purchased utilities, generated utilities, building automation systems (BAS), metering systems (both advanced and manually read), weather, computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS), and space planning systems. Additionally an EMS manages rate and billing data, users, and organizational information.
Most manufacturing companies are looking for a competitive edge. A reduction in energy costs to manufacture the product can be immediate and permanent. In addition, products that use energy, such as motor driven machinery, are being evaluated to make them more energy efficient, and therefore more marketable.
Energy Manager EXT uses standard Modbus over TCP communication, providing a fully Ethernet-based communication network. This allows any Modbus based device to be used with the meter. The HMI Com engine supports many different formats, such as float and integer. It also allows you to place scale factors and formulas for proper scaling. Moreover, Modbus TCP allows multiple socket connections so that multiple users can obtain real time data and download stored power quality data, simultaneously.
Energy Manager HMI is designed as a true Client/Server package. The base system acts as a data polling engine and data server. Additionally, the web base client package also operates as an HMI display client, which can be accessed throughout the network. Web based clients can be browse on an unlimited number of computers, but the user only activates the desired number of simultaneous clients. The system is economically designed to incorporate desired number of simultaneous users.
Whether you are operating a large power utility or simply need a small power distribution monitoring solution, HMI EXT allows you to set up a graphical presentation of desired data. You can build intuitive and consistent user interfaces using standard tools such as shaded lines, buttons or polygons, and easily manipulate the objects using a wide range of dynamic properties. Fully Customized reporting solution with Advanced filtering and grouping facility in PDF/HTML/Excel formats, which can be built by user themselves in Excel base template. Also can be auto scheduled as per shift change requirement.
