Prior to a planned expansion,Tinytag Energy data loggers monitored electrical consumption to provide accurate usage data for planning future energy needs.
The hospital in Stockholm was undertaking an expansion
programme, and it was therefore important for them to understand
their current total power consumption to assess whether their
transformers would be adequate to handle the intended development.
Consultants BIHAL AB were commissioned to find out this
information. Gemini's Swedish
distributor Intab supplied them with eight Tinytag Energy
data loggers to help achieve this, with measurements taken over
a period of two weeks.
Hans Larsén, CEO at BIHAL AB first came in contact with Intab
back in the 1980s in pre-Tinytag days when he was the electrical
manager at shipping company Posten & PG, where Intab conducted
a monitoring analysis of all the cells in the battery banks at UPS
facilities. Larsén comments, "I still use Tinytags today, and
realised that the Energy Logger would be useful in acquiring the
necessary power usage data at the hospital. It proved effective and
easy to use for this purpose."
