5 Reasons Why You Need Power Monitoring System
Power Monitoring System such as DELTA Power Meter helps to analyse power quality events by determining event techniques and spot certain events that might cause harms to your facility.
These are the 5 reasons why you might need Power Monitoring System:
- To save cost from complicated electric rate schedule.
With power monitoring system, you can map your plant’s peak demand and allocate them based on the electric rate schedule such as off-peak and on-peak schedules.
- To ensure reliable power for your facility operations or team safety.
Commonly, facility uses generator control system, uninterruptible power supply (UPS), and other electrical distribution system to ensure that reliable power supply is driven into the facility. Power management system tracks important metrics such as UPS run hours and many more. Thus, with these important metrics, it can help you increase your equipments lifespan and in turn, reduce costs.
- To find out if your electrical-type equipments might subject to premature failures.
With power monitoring system, you can use easily monitor your electrical-type equipments important parts and determine if they might be subject to premature failures. By discovering these, you can perform preventive measures and thus ensuring that your lifespan equipments last as long as what the OEM has outlined.
- To determine the cause of frequent electrical trippings and control devices resets.
Electrical trippings and control device resets in the end will cause some costs to your facility such as reducing the quality of your manufactured products, damage your equipments, and a few others.
Power monitoring systems help to determine the causes of these and hence allowing you to quickly resolve these problems.
- To automate emergency power supply system (EPSS) reporting for compliance purposes.
This is mostly important if you are using supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. Power monitoring system schedule tests, evaluate results, and automatically generate reports for distribution – and thus, saving you many man-hours every month.
Not only does a power monitoring system, such as DELTA Power Meter or DIAEnergie, automatically collect data, it also provides an extensive library of templates and reports to guide you through data analysis.
Many Industries nowadays using a power monitoring system has a simple way of proactively identifying facility inefficiencies, Energy saving, environment control, power monitoring and analysis, facility management control without going through a difficult customization program in SCADA or building automation.
