Energy logger helps Identify energy savings

30 September 2018

The Tinytag Energy Logger from Gemini Data Loggers is a portable, easy to use data recorder which monitors power usage in premises with high consumption equipment.

Using an energy consumption logger it offers an effective means of checking power usage – it is often easier to look at logger readings than attempt to decipher electricity bills (which are often estimated) or meter readings. The Tinytag Energy Logger monitors single and three phase power usage, and recorded data can then be analysed to help understand how and where energy is used and to identify opportunities for reduction.

It uses non-invasive flexible coils to monitor the current in each phase of a three phase supply, while voltage information can be obtained via a standard 13A wall socket. Recorded data is downloaded to a PC – where it presented initially in graphs and tables in the Tinytag Explorer Software – to help identify times of peak load and to identify power hungry or inefficient equipment. 

The unit also records Power Factor (PF) data, a measure of power transmission efficiency: this can be significant because power companies typically charge a higher rate for industrial or commercial customers with a low PF
