An Energy Monitor is a device that allows us to know the amount of energy consumed in a particular time and place. It can be in a house, office, building or factory. The most basic version of this device can be found outside your home; this meter is used by the energy company to measure your consumption and calculate the energy bill.
In other words, each appliance connected to the power grid (television, washing machine, computer), consumes an amount of energy while it is on, and the meter records the cumulative consumption of all appliances. However, there are monitors with advanced capabilities, one of them is the new MDE-IND Energy Monitor.
How does the MDE-IND Energy Monitor differ from a conventional meter?
An MDE-IND energy monitor exceeds the functions of a traditional energy meter by providing the following additional benefits:
This function gives the user the possibility to be informed remotely, and almost instantaneously, when any eventuality occurs in the power supply.
This allows you to take corrective actions to ensure the continuity of your operation and avoid unscheduled downtime.
What other functions does the MDE-IND Energy Monitor have?
How can the MDE-IND Energy Monitor help me comply with the new Grid Code?
Since 2019, the Grid Code came into force, which is: a mandatory technical regulation that establishes compliance parameters in terms of power quality in a load center. This standard applies to all load centers connected to the National Electric System (SEN). However, many companies are still unaware of this issue and risk being sanctioned with fines ranging from 50 to 200 thousand minimum wages. In this sense, having the MDE-IND Energy Monitor helps to identify the parameters that are not being met and to take the necessary actions to correct them.
In conclusion, the MDE-IND energy monitor is an ally in the management of electrical energy because, through the information it captures, it is possible to take measures to save on billing, maintenance of machinery and facilities and ensure the power quality.
