Schneider Electric has introduced the Powerview power and energy monitoring software solution, which is suitable for small system applications to help businesses save money and energy.

The Powerview software works with the company’s Powerlogic EGX100 integrated gateway and range of meters.

It allows users to track real-time power conditions and remotely monitor electrical equipment and installations across an entire electrical network.

Through the system, users can measure the energy consumption of specific applications or circuits by day and hour, analyse and compare total harmonic distortion, produce reports and plot trends.

The software is capable of reading up to 32 meters, transferring data from RS485 on which the metering devices run to the Ethernet port on which the Powerlogic gateway operates, allowing data to be viewed on the user’s computer.

The Powerview software is compatible with a choice of Schneider’s metering devices, including the Compact NSX moulded case circuit breaker, which also monitors energy and power, and the entire Powerlogic range.

The system allows organisations to achieve transparent energy management and, by having an integrated gateway, software and metering function, helps businesses qualify for an enhanced capital allowance on automatic monitoring and targeting equipment, according to the company.

Zina Shair, marketing engineer at Schneider, said: ‘By tracking real-time power conditions, analysing power quality and reliability and studying historical trends, businesses can pinpoint energy waste or unused capacity, as well as verify efficiency improvements and allocate energy usage to buildings, departments or processes.

‘This will then help to cut energy-related costs, avoid downtime and optimise equipment utilisation,’ added Shair.
