Power usage of a range of electrical equipment is recorded to provide detailed consumption profiles and to help reduce energy usage.
The Trust uses the Energy Logger
to monitor electrical distribution and provide sub-metering
information across the sizable and diverse Hospital Estate. The
site incorporates a range of electrical distribution equipment that
makes up the overall network. The Energy
Logger is used regularly on numerous low voltage (LV) panels,
typically attached to the incoming LV cables in the back of the
panels. The recorded data forms part of power usage reports, and is
used to help determine equipment sizing (generators). The
information provided also assists with the Trust's energy reduction
Nicholas Lane, Estates Operational Manager at Sandwell and West
Birmingham NHS Trust comments, "We are extremely pleased with the
Logger: we have found it reliable and easy to operate. It takes
a minimal amount of time to set the logger up and the coils are
easily attached to the incoming cables."
