Remote energy monitoring is made simpler
Carlo Gavazzi’s VMUC-EM energy-monitoring platform collects data from energy meters and temperature inputs and exposes it to local networks and the Internet by providing three Web services. One is an ftp server to transfer data to a capable BMS. An http client enables data to be pulled on demand. And a web server provides continuous access to real-time data, trending and alarms.
Logged instantaneous variables of each meter can be displayed on a daily, monthly or annual basis. Data can be acquired from the main meter or a virtual meter, which is the sum of any pre-defined sub-meters. Trends can be compared with the previous similar period. Alarms can be display or sent by e-mail or SMS.
Estimations can be based on a dual tariff system that includes active and reactive energy costs and any monthly penalties that may occur by exceeding the contractual power allowance.
