Energy management pays for itself while energy costs continue to increase

Hannover, April 13, 2015 – Energy costs have become a crucial factor for companies to maintain efficient production and stay competitive. The revised DIN EN ISO 50001 legislation provides tax incentives to companies who embrace energy management programs and certifications. A successful energy management and control program can limit energy consumption by continuously monitoring usage and adjusting control parameters accordingly. Only those companies who evaluate and analyze data over specific time intervals are able to interpret the results and take appropriate actions to lower energy consumption. 

ABB, the leading energy and automation technology company, offers comprehensive know-how in the area of energy management and a wide range of low voltage products that offer operators performance indicators for communicating, transmitting, analyzing and sometimes even automatically routing and regulating the electrical distribution. 

“Our products comply with all existing standards and are, therefore, easily integrated into existing systems. Our product portfolio enables the collection of all types of measurement and control data with one partner,” says Harald Horst, Head of Business Development, Business Unit Enclosures and DIN-Rail Products. '

Interoperability and integration is ensured as ABB’s products can communicate with most globally accepted protocols such as Modbus, M-Bus, KNX, etc. The following products are highlights of ABB’s offerings: 
  • Energy meter – Electric energy meters are measuring devices for collecting and measuring electricity consumption and are DIN-rail mounted. They are typically used in industrial, residential and commercial buildings and collect data, for example, for energy management systems or cost analysis. There has been an increase of sub-meters in the industrial settings to determine energy costs of specific departments, processes or product lines.
  • G13 gateway – The G13 gateway is a product to facilitate the integration of ABB meters into a system environment. That is, from the system environment having one single access point to a network of meters. Up to 32 meters can be connected on the meter side which is accessed through an Ethernet connection on the system side of the G13. 
  • M2M network analyzer – The new M2M network analyzer offers expanded analysis functions that help optimize consumption as efficiently as possible. Only when building operators can view and measure all electrical parameters of an installation, can they detect energy loss and optimize power consumption. The M2M devices also offer conversion functions that can measure values in CO2 / kg and Euros. These concrete and meaningful values allow access to and support of a more efficient use of resources that would otherwise only represent abstract data. 
  • Circuit monitoring systems (CMS) – An electricity measuring system is a multi-channel measure system for branch monitoring. Measuring of individual electric circuits is mainly useful for current monitoring. The system design consists of a control unit and sensors. The sensors communicate all through one line with the control unit and their compact size results in significant space savings. Up to 64 sensors can be connected to the control unit.
