The important energy data always at your service.
The recorded data can be transferred directly to a database server for archival purposes, and are therefore also available to higher-level systems (such as ERP systems) for evaluation. In addition to the local display on the desktop PC or operating unit, the collected information can also be provided for mobile devices (PC, Smartphone, Tablet PC) for mobile access. If limit values are exceeded, the system can alert the responsible employees or departments by e-mail or SMS.
Based on the information obtained, a specific energy management can be operated very efficiently for any production plant or building complex. In the case of energy monitoring, of course, the data of self-generated energy (e.g. photovoltaic system, heat pumps, etc.) can also be used and compared with the own energy consumption. The monitoring of other resources, like water or gas, is also possible and offers further possibilities to manage the resource consumption.
Avoiding load peaks = Reducing energy costs.
Load spikes can put a heavy strain on the energy costs of companies, because they have an enormous impact on the price of electricity and gas. They usually occur when strong energy consumers start up or operate simultaneously.
With automated load management, such peak values can be avoided and energy costs can be reduced in the long term. The VBASE Resource Control has all the possibilities to implement automated load management in manufacturing companies. Load management not only minimizes load peaks and reduces energy costs but also contributes to a safe operation without fuse or power failure and increases the life of electrical devices.
ROI through energy and resource control.
Energy controlling is the consistent addition to energy monitoring, since the information from the monitoring is applied and the savings potential realized. Unused energy consumers can be automatically shut down or switched off.
The key figures obtained from VBASE monitoring can be automatically transferred to the control systems of the energy users in order to regulate these by requirement and according to their needs and thus to operate energy-efficiently. Where direct control of consumers is not possible, VBASE Controlling can directly intervene and control directly through downstream systems. Peak loads can be avoided by starting particularly energy-intensive loads at specific times or avoiding operating at maximum power. By using production and working schedules, e.g. plants, lighting, heating, etc., can be controlled in a timely manner.
Even self-generated energy can be used more extensively by energy controlling, since all information about the currently generated power as well as the consumption is available at all times. Energy storage devices can also be integrated and operated with a very high efficiency. If limit values are exceeded, messages can be automatically sent by e-mail or SMS.
