Online and mobile application energy-saving calculators

10 January 2012

A new tool has been introduced by Rockwell Automation to allow manufacturers to use mobile devices or computers to calculate the potential savings from equipment such as variable frequency drives, power pumps and fans.

The new tool, allows users to compare conventional methods, such as valves for pump control and dampers for fan control, to variable frequency drives and see estimated cost savings of installing a PowerFlex drive. It provides two ways to calculate energy consumption – by entering the minimum pump or flow percentages, annual operating hours, cost per kilowatt and other information about their own factory, or by using sample data that is built into the tool.

The tool forms part of the Rockwell Automation Intelligent Motor Control portfolio, which helps manufacturers to access and control their motor assets. The technology behind Intelligent Motor Control – including variable frequency drives, intelligent software and condition-monitoring devices is said to help improve motor control performance for greater overall production efficiency.
