Predicting the savings for changing to LED lighting
A wireless energy-monitoring system can provide real-time energy-consumption statistics for light to enable the benefits of replacing a traditional lighting system with LEDs to be assessed. The savings that could be achieved by adding controls such as motion sensors can also be accurately projected through the software.
The Minimise monitoring and control system is powered by Realtime Online available from Minimise Energy.
Data is collected from a range of meters and battery-operated wireless sensors attached to specific circuits.
For most projects, sensors are simply clipped into place on the lighting circuits and do not require any additional wiring. For some circuits a split-core voltage current transformer is used.
The data can be used by Minimise to devise a bespoke LED solution for a business’s individual energy profile. For many commercial applications, data of this type can accurately calculate energy saving , so it is fundamental in unlocking infrastructure-improvement budgets at board level.
