Introduction[edit]

RSEnergyMetrix is a sophisticated Web-enabled, energy management software package which places critical energy information at our desktop. The RSEnergyMetrix Software Suite integrates data communication, client-server applications, and Microsoft's advanced .NET Web technology to provide us with a comprehensive energy-management solution. Via RSEnergyMetrix, we can capture, analyze, store, and share energy data across our entire enterprise through a LAN or WAN using a simple Web browser.

Uses[edit]

RSEnergyMetrix helps managers and engineers solve on-going, energy-related challenges. By means of RSEnergyMetrix, we can:

  • Correlate energy costs to production costs
  • Provide accurate cost accounting based on consumption
  • Generate energy reports and charts for a process, department, facility or enterprise
  • Optimize energy procurement and help negotiate better rates
  • Make decisions on electrical capacity
  • Avoid unscheduled shutdown
  • Procure and analyze energy information with minimum capital investment

Benefits[edit]

Following are the major benefits offered by RSEnergyMetrix:

Scalability[edit]

RSEnergyMetrix has the scalability to add additional software features at the same time maintaining our initial investments.

Connectivity[edit]

RSEnergyMetrix makes connectivity to devices simple by using RSLinx or OPC. It Supports connectivity to Allen-Bradley Power monitors, EEMs, and PLCs via RSLinx RS232, RS-485, Ethernet, DeviceNet, RIO pass-thru, optical, and modem whereas connectivity to third-party devices is supported via OPC.

Configuration[edit]

RSEnergyMetrix provides easy and flexible configuration from our Web browser. It can configure

  • Allen-Bradley Power monitors
  • Water, air, gas, electric, steam, or other energy meters
  • Manual meters for manual data entry (useful for entering in production data)
  • Groups and tree structure to simulate organization or department schema

Besides, it allocates meters to groups for cost allocation and creates rate schedules to reproduce energy bills

Monitoring and Analysis[edit]

RSEnergyMetrix is a powerful load-profiling, cost-allocation, and billing analysis tool. It can:

  • Log power and energy data from Allen-Bradley Power monitors
  • Log energy usage, flow, temperature, and pressure from PLCs or third-party devices
  • Log production data manually or from a PLC
  • View real-time data
  • View and trend historical data dynamically or within custom reports and charts
  • Compare alternative rate schedules to analyze potential cost savings
  • Create energy budgets and forecasts

Power Quality Analysis[edit]

RSEnergyMetrix is a sophisticated power quality analysis tool which can:

  • Perform waveform captures to correlate phase-to-phase relationships
  • Plot transients, surges, and sags on ITI (CBEMA Curves)
  • Display harmonics, THD, K-factor, and Crest Factor
  • Generate power quality charts and reports

Alarming[edit]

RSEnergyMetrix generates alarms in response to user-defined conditions. It generate threshold alarms based off of any parameter being logged to the system while email alarm alerts to specified email addresses

Security[edit]

RSEnergyMetrix allows multi-level security by allotting multi-user and assignable roles to allow specific data access. Furthermore it provides Windows® Active Directory (LDAP) support for synchronized passwords
