POWER MONITORING EXPERT 2020

Power Monitoring Expert (PME) is a software our engineers use to give insight into electrical power quality and energy efficiency so you can make informed decisions to keep your site reliable and cost efficient.

POWER MONITORING EXPERT

We are experts in PME and have been supplying, commissioning and integrating these systems as a Schneider Ecoxpert partner since 2001.

The newest version of PME, is a leap-forward in what was already the world’s most powerful energy and power quality management system. The new features include cyber security, alarm management and third party integration. It connects to smart devices across your electrical system allowing real-time power and equipment monitoring with a customisable and intuitive interface.

OPTIMISE BUSINESS RELIABILITY AND CONTINUITY

UNDERSTAND

the cause of power quality disturbances using advanced power forensics.

ANALYZE

the aging of breaker contacts to avoid failures and enable proactive maintenance.

IDENTIFY

and monitor protection settings to ensure proper isolation of faults to avoid outages.

TRACK

system capacity to avoid overloads and ensure backup systems are able to handle loads.

SIMPLIFY REPORTING AND COMPLIANCE

  • Align with energy efficiency and green building standards
  • Track energy performance indicators 
  • Verify utility/grid service and internal compliance to power quality standards
  • In healthcare facilities, ensure regulatory compliance with backup power system testing
  • Comply with common IT practices and align with cybersecurity best practices

KEEP PEOPLE AND ASSETS SAFER

  • Monitor breaker protection settings and ensure proper breaker operation and fault isolation to avoid safety hazards
  • Operate breakers remotely to minimize exposure to arc-flash risk
  • Detect abnormal conditions, such as rising busbar temperatures, that represent a risk to safety and operations
  • Protect user safety in hospital operating rooms by monitoring and locating circuit insulation faults

PREMIUM POWER - THE COMPLETE SERVICE OFFERING

OPTIMAL DESIGNING

  • Specifying and supplying all metering devices gives us full visibility of the entire planned network, allowing for optimal solution design.
  • Early involvement allows for overall system network documentation, drawings of system block layout and network schedule to be produced.
  • Full system network communication requirements can be managed, and requirements in terms of switches and racks be finalised and specified.

POST COMMISSIONING CLIENT SUPPORT

  • Crucially the client has single contact for all issues relating to the PMS.
  • Our in depth device knowledge and troubleshooting tools when identifying source of communication / system problems.
  • Meter firmware is kept updated to latest versions ensuring that they are supported with future power monitoring software versions.

EFFICIENT COMMISSIONING

  • As we stock spare devices time can be dramatically saved. This also aids troubleshooting and ensures that commissioning can be completed in the shortest possible time.
  • Meter firmware and metering setup can be customised for an Out-of-the-box version.

PRE-COMMISSIONING

  • Liaising with the switchgear providers to ensure that wiring, signal status and communication wiring are confirmed and signed off prior to site commissioning. This can save a lot of  time later. Incomplete/ Incorrect wiring can happen quite routinely .

FEATURED CASE STUDY
Gilead Sciences - Power Monitoring System

Gilead Sciences Ireland is responsible for the manufacturing, packaging and distribution of products throughout Europe and other international locations. We worked closely with Gilead’s engineering department to install a specialist power monitor system (PMS), Power Monitoring Expert 7.2, at their Carrigtwohill plant, Co. Cork. The PMS is used to log and report on the sites W.A.G.E.S. usage and record any power quality events.
