          Energy monitoring

          Manage WAGES in small to medium-sized commercial and industrial buildings


          Main drivers

          “I need to make sure my processes are running at maximum efficiency without generating any shortages. Plus, I want a breakdown of individual energy costs for each workshop.”

          Solution in brief

          Combine an iRio RTU, Rio extensions and meters to track workshops consumption

          The system is based on an iRio RTU (Remote Terminal Unit), plus Rio extension modules on the secondary switchboards for each workshop or production line. The terminal and modules pick up metering data from power meters (pulsing contacts or Modbus Serial Line communication) and flow meters (pulsing contact, Modbus Serial Line communication, or M-Bus open metering communication). The terminal then generates the necessary databases, dashboards, curves, and reports and transmits data.

          The solution provides WAGES consumption information for each workshop or production line, and then provides ratios and curves showing each machine’s or each area’s consumption profile.

          The metering database can be downloaded for detailed budgeting and usage optimisation needs.

          Electric metering can be provided by a number of meter options depending on your distribution architecture and metering performance requirements:

          • PowerLogic large range of power meters
          • PM9C/200/700 communicating power meters
          • Cost-effective A9MEM2000T/PM9P/ME4zr pulsing power meters

          Benefits for end users

          • 10% energy savings thanks to usage analysis - Even greater savings if additional controls are implemented
          • More efficient operation and maintenance
          • Reduced utility fees and penalties through load shedding
          • Reliable industrial RTU technology ensures information is available
          • Customisable data processing, user interfaces, reports, and controls
          • The solution works with pulse metering technology
          • Possible small initial rollout to secure quick ROI; can be scaled up later with additional metering iRio pre-developed software modules minimise software development costs
          • Web based for easy implementation; no dedicated workstation required

          Benefits for professionals

          • Low software development costs: iRio comes with pre-developed software modules
          • Flexible data acquisition capabilities (pulse, Modbus SL, M-Bus) for compatibility with existing meters
          • Powerful customisation capabilities: implement additional control functions if and when required
          • Highly scalable for maximum cost-effectiveness
          • Less time spent on-site: remote alarm and operation
