Provide End to End Solution for All Power Monitoring

When it comes to power in a building, Electrical Engineers and Building and Facilities Managers are tasked with managing the power quality throughout the building; as well as increasing awareness of power consumption; implementing Energy reduction programs; and collecting and analyzing the power used, along with generating usage reports and billing of tenants, if necessary. Few providers worldwide can offer an end to end solution that meets the latest needs, including cyber secure power meters, IEC 61850 Protocol, and 4G LTE™ wireless communication that replaces the soon to be extinct 2G and 3G networks.

Technical Engineering Services Experts

Once power monitoring equipment is in place, you are still only halfway there. The next steps are commissioning, start up verification, certification of installations, and training of staff on the meter and software. You must provide your client with the ability to thoroughly understand the product and how to use it to pull and analyze data, download reports of every aspect of electrical power usage and power quality, identify where energy savings can be obtained, and bill tenants. Product training helps users by educating them on all aspects of the life cycle of metering systems, from installation to ongoing use. Your understanding of best practices, metering applications, and other relevant aspects needed by your client, help to make your project a success.

Monitor Power Quality in All Parts of a Building

Good power quality is essential to the smooth running of any building. Power quality problems can result in damage to equipment, downtime, and lost productivity and revenue. EIG’s advanced and highly accurate meters and submeters let your clients monitor power quality for specific loads or parts of the building. EIG meters let the user set up alarms for multiple conditions – drops in voltage, current faults, change in phase angles, change in I/O state, flicker, etc.; and send emails on alarm to multiple users. Your clients can also monitor in-rush current for large pieces of equipment, to be proactive in equipment repair or replacement, avoiding downtime. In addition, non-linear loads in buildings cause harmonics, inter-harmonics, and flicker, all of which can have a detrimental effect on power quality. EIG’s meters and submeters let your clients view and analyze all these power quality components and provide detailed reports showing if power quality is within normative standards.

Increase Awareness of Energy Consumption Profiles through Submetering

Submeters are a critical element for measuring energy consumption. The installation of submeters has been shown to foster energy savings simply through the awareness of energy consumption that they provide, which promotes the conscientious use of energy and yields savings of up to 15%. Your clients gain the support of your tenants in reducing energy usage with the information received through submetering. And the Shark® 100B submeter has native BACnet/IP, which lets it fit seamlessly into any existing BACnet application being used to manage your clients’ buildings.

Implement Energy Reduction Programs and Monitor Their Progress

For several years, the U.S. Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) has issued energy savings guidelines that include the implementation of submetering with energy tracking and reporting, and the formalization of energy goals and processes. Every commercial building owner, every tenant and tenants with multiple floors or significant square footage, must be engaged to take advantage of energy management and energy efficiency initiatives.

Installing EIG’s meters, submeters, and metering and billing software is one of the most cost-effective ways to implement an energy management program. Installing submeters is also a smart way to fight competition from other building owners. Commercial building owners who do not take advantage of the simple use of submetering run the risk of failing to keep the best of tenants. Armed with the knowledge they get from EIG’s meters and submeters, energy and facility managers can help tenants make decisions that will realize energy savings for everyone.
