We offer an integrated energy management system based on our process control systems Plant iT and brewmaxx. This is the ideal solution for manufacturing companies that wish to sustainably reduce their energy costs, as the entire plant structure, including all the consumers and even actuators and sensors, can be mapped and parameterised. For example, the relevant parameters can be defined for each production unit in such a way that process requirements – along with load-related automated disconnection strategies – can be taken into account. Operation of the energy management system takes place on the same user interface as management of the process control systems Plant iT and brewmaxx. In the same view that displays information on the actual process, plant operators are notified that, e.g., peak loads may soon be reached and that defined areas of the plant must be temporarily disconnected.
