EMS by business type

The below article outlines some of the challenges utility and facility managers face in trying to control their energy consumption, highlighting some of the most common energy challenges faced by different business segments, business types.

Why AVReporter?

Flexible Integration

  • Provides users to manage different type of system applications all in one surface (ERP, SCADA, BMS, EMS, Production management systems, etc.)
  • Open architecture supports industry standard protocols and an expansive range of different manufactures devices

Flexible Integration

Flexible integration is important when

  • users wish to implement energy management into existing corporate environment, where other systems are running; -AVReporter can be integrated into this environment easily, connecting with all the other systems and providing one surface where all the data, reports, analytics can be viewed or worked with, avoiding using many excel sheets for analytics
  • users wish to view the end-results straight away or work with even the other systems on AVReporter's surface
  • No need to change or throw away existing software or system components (brand independent solution, can be networked with other solutions or applications)

Import data from all types of energy consumed by utilities (water, air, gas, electricity, steam), emissions, production or business process data from enterprise system databases (e.g. metering, BAC, ERP, SCADA, BMS, EMS, Production management systems); export data to other enterprise business or automation systems. Open architecture supports industry standard protocols (Modbus TCPIP, Modbus RTU, OPC Server Connection – BACNET, LONBUS, PROFIBUS, etc.) and an expansive range of different manufactures devices (ABB, Siemens, Schneider Electric, ION meters, Phoenix Contact, Circutor, Janitza, Carlo Gavazzi, Socomec, Satec, Elnet, Pilot, Weidmüller, etc.).

 

Key features of datasource integration:

  • Imports data from MS SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, Sybase, etc./, XML data sources, ActiveX components, WEB services, CSV files, FTP data sources, OPC servers, etc.
  • Exports data to MS SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, Sybase, etc./, XML data sources, ActiveX components, WEB services, CSV files, FTP data sources, etc.
  • Supports complex calculations on the source data (SQL commands, VB functions, etc.)
  • Allows custom functions using Visual Basic script and SQL queries  
  • Can pre-process source data and store the results in the AVReporter database

Powerful Reports

  • Easy-to-use wide selection of template Reports & Dashboards
  • Unique, fully customised report options
  • Scheduled reports to selected groups or people

Powerful Reports

AVReporter can provide basic template solution too for those, who wish to monitor only basic consumption or submit these required values to governments or just need to record these regularly for compliance.

However for those users, who wish to truly improve their energy efficiency, energy quality and security or aim for standards like ISO 50001, LEED or BREAM will need a more comprehensive tool. AVReporter is a modular energy management software with numerous versions and add-ons. This is to allow users to pay only for what they wish to use and get a suitable fit for their needs.

Apart from accessing the wide template library for quick report building there is an advanced option to build fully customised reports (like how many trees you need to grow in order of offsetting your CO2... etc.) with no programming due to the pre-created structures you can apply your requirements onto.

AVR fully supports users to create just the right view and summary of their data easily in web and desktop enviroment by wizard. Thanks to the simple user interface, preparing a report does not require any particular professional knowledge.

Key features:

  • Provides reporting for all utilities in one platform (electric energy, gas, vapour, water, sewage, etc.).
  • Reporting energy use by product, production unit, or some other unit of service, as required for tracking the key performance indicators for any business (kWh/HDD, kWh/ton, kWh/unit, kWh, shift, etc).
  • Broad range of report and dashboard applications such as KPI reports, Energy Ratings using ABC charting, Energy Use Allocation, Energy by Threshold Limits, TOU Chart, Optimization of energy bookings, Energy Consumption Forecasting, Green House Gases reports, CO2 emission calculations, ISO 50001 Energy Reports, Examination of quality features, Statements of efficiency of the application of renewable energy sources, etc.
  • WEBPublisher Dynamic Dashboard with Microsoft’s Silverlight technology enables the user to make presentable reports quickly and easily. Additionally, the Gadget Bar ensures handy tractability for the user.

Sophisticated Alarms

  • Automated monitoring and control for alarm notifications
  • Detect any discrepancies and alert
  • E-mail or text message (SMS)

Sophisticated Alarms

Deploying a complex alarming solution can be vital for some users.

Whilst historic alarms help to analyse certain events and provide information for prevention, real-time alarms allow users to react quickly to current problems saving expensive machinery, products or even human life.

When designing AVReporter this was one of the main areas to focus on, as many users are coming from highly sensitive environments (pharma industry, food and beverages, data centers, banks etc.).

AVReporter is available in desktop, web and mobile environment too: featuring alarm, event management and alarm summary report creation possibilities, email sending, etc.

  • Simple filter settings possibilities
  • Customize alarm settings for user requirement
  • Alarm group creation (separate alarms for utilities)
  • Notification for alarm acknowledges (support maintenance activities)
  • Create alarm queries and reports
  • Export functions
  • Multi language alarm messages
  • System event log
