                                                    Energy monitoring

                                                    Manage WAGES (Water, Air, Gas, Electricity, Steam) in non-critical large industrial buildings


                                                    Main drivers

                                                    “I need to make sure my processes are running at maximum effi ciency 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

                                                    Solution applicable to non-critical large industrial buildings > 500 kVA

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

                                                    • Masterpact or Compact NSX built-in power meter
                                                    • PM9C/200/700 communicating power meters
                                                    • Cost-effective EN40/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

                                                    > Customizable data processing, user interfaces, reports, and controls

                                                    > Cost-effective

                                                    • The solution works with pulse metering technology
                                                    • Possible small initial rollout to secure quick ROI; can be scaled up later with additional metering

                                                    > iRio predeveloped software modules minimize 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
