Due to continuously rising prices, energy efficiency is becoming an increasingly important issue in business and industry – not only for cost reasons, but also because of heightened sensitivity to environmental issues. In order to achieve significant savings, above all complex processes in production systems have to be optimized and, for example, cycles times and downtime need to be minimized.
Once every four years, large companies are required to subject themselves to a mandatory energy audit in accordance with DIN EN 16247-1, but this is merely a status assessment as compared with an energy management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001. However, small and mid-sized companies benefit from this as well.
And thus in the meantime for many companies, systematic energy management is a suitable tool for increasing energy efficiency and reducing costs as a result. The ISO 50001 standard, which came into force in 2011, sets appropriate international standards for energy management systems. By determining how much energy is consumed by which departments within a company, it’s also possible to identify where potential savings are available. Experience shows that companies can reduce energy consumption by 10 to 25% with the help of an energy management system.
Do you want to introduce an energy management system or are you still looking for a suitable tool for data collection? With its Gossen Metrawatt and Camille Bauer brand names, GMC-I Messtechnik GmbH offers a broad range of products for effective energy data management as a competent partner – from the acquisition level right on up to the management level.
All relevant consumption data for electrical power, water, gas and heat can be acquired, stored, visualized, evaluated and automatically reported with our SMARTCOLLECT solution. SMARTCOLLECT is specially designed for applications in the energy sector and general industry, as well as for service providers and the public sector. A modern, graphic user interface permits easy, intuitive use, even with large numbers of measuring points. Functions and measuring points can be very easily supplemented at any time thanks to the modular layout.
SMARTCOLLECT acquires measurement data from a great variety of devices in a simple fashion and stores them in an open SQL database. The software provides basic functions for data analysis and simple energy monitoring.
Device data can be integrated either directly via Modbus RTU (RS485), Ethernet TCP/IP or via a data collector such as SmartControl. SMARTCOLLECT is also manufacturer-independent, which means you can integrate devices from all manufacturers.
Not only is it possible to acquire, store and visualize electrical measured quantities, but rather all other relevant consumption data as well such as gas, water and heat.
