Connecting t-mac to the mains multi-utility meters provides real-time energy data.
Visibility is key to energy management as without metering, businesses don’t know what they are consuming and when. By managing the data in real-time, businesses can act ‘now’ if energy consumption peaks beyond the desired level. The t-mac device can connect to the optical port or take a physical pulse output from the mains meter providing instant information on costs, consumption and carbon footprint.
Once businesses know how much they are consuming and when, the next stage is to find out where and why; this is where sub-metering comes in. By sub-metering activity areas such as lighting, heating and general power or zones such as canteens, data-centres, tenanted floors, manufacturing lines and sports halls, businesses can identify the cause of the mains consumption – the reasons behind the peaks, troughs and base-load. By sub-metering data, inefficiencies are easily identified and businesses are better armed to take action to reduce consumption, cost and carbon footprint.
For an organisation investing in renewable equipment, metering the energy generated is a valuable addition to the energy management activities. By connecting metering points from the renewable equipment to the t-mac device, businesses can quantify and verify generated energy
