Temperature data loggers help ensure heat comfort levels are maintained and help verify operation of boiler plant and controls. The Energy Logger is used to monitor electrical consumption before and after energy saving measures are introduced.
Tinytag data loggers are helping the University of Chichester
with their energy saving objectives. Peter Bassett is the
University's Energy Officer, and his role is to implement energy
saving measures and initiatives in order to reduce carbon
emissions. Monitoring is essential to ensure heat comfort levels
are maintained, and to verify the operation of boiler plant and
controls. In addition, monitoring provides evidence to support
future projects, and verification post project.
Transit 2 data loggers are used to confirm temperatures within
accommodation and academic areas. People's perception of
temperature frequently varies: if they feel the radiator and it's
not on, they may think the heating is broken - when in reality the
room has reached a satisfactory comfort level and the heating has
shut down. The Transit 2 is ideal for measuring a wide range of
temperatures, potentially over a significant amount of time. Peter
frequently has six or seven simultaneously monitoring different
buildings across the campuses.
Logger is used to verify electrical consumption pre and post
energy saving measures/projects to calculate actual carbon and
The data is analysed and used as evidence to confirm that the
University is either in control of its energy usage, or to
highlight areas for potential improvement. Peter comments, "The
software that accompanies the loggers produces comprehensive graphs
that can easily be exported into 3rd party software. Gemini's
customer support has been very good: queries have been answered in
a timely manner at all times."
