Monitor Power Quality in All Parts of a Factory
Good power quality is essential to the smooth running of any factory. Power quality problems can result in damage to equipment, downtime, and lost productivity and revenue. In fact, an estimated 30-40% of all commercial downtime is power quality related. EIG’s advanced and highly accurate meters and submeters let you monitor power quality for specific loads or parts of the factory. EIG meters let you set alarms for multiple conditions – drops in voltage, current faults, change in phase angles, change in I/O state, flicker, etc.; and to send emails on alarm to multiple users. You can also monitor in-rush current for large pieces of equipment to be proactive in equipment repair or replacement to avoid downtime. In addition, non-linear loads in factories cause harmonics, inter-harmonics and flicker, all of which can have a detrimental effect on power quality. EIG’s meters, submeters, and energy management software let you view and analyze all these power quality components and provide you with detailed reports showing if power quality is within normative standards. And the EnergyPQA.com™ Energy Management Cloud solution lets you view power quality and alarms for the entire factory’s meters, online.
Respond to PQ Problems Before Outages Occur
Reliability of the power running your factory is essential. Factory downtime = lost revenue. With EIG meters giving you access to PQ information at the point a problem occurs, and the EnergyPQA.com™ Cloud solution predicting energy usage for the factory, you can be proactive in addressing problems before they occur, avoiding downtime and the lost revenue it causes. And EIG’s meters have generous amounts of memory for logging measurements and recording waveforms, which lets you perform detailed forensic analysis of any electrical anomaly problems that occur. EIG tools allow you to study what went wrong in order to prevent it the next time.
Analyze Factory and Process Energy Consumption Enterprise-wide
EIG meters have extensive memory for trending. The EnergyReporterPQA™ software application uses the historical log data to produce detailed reports of energy and other commodity usage. You can use the software’s Dashboard Viewer to compare usage in different areas of the factory, for specific loads, or for different timeframes, to find where efficiency can be improved, saving energy and lowering costs. And since Demand charges can be as high as 50% of a facility’s actual consumption, the EnergyPQA.com™system’s predicted usage and Demand engine gives you the information you need to implement Peak Demand reduction strategies.
