Collect energy data

Before it comes to visualization or even analysis, data must be collected. With the hardware from Phoenix Contact, several options can be implemented for incorporating energy measuring devices into existing systems.

The data collected for this purpose and ideally sent to an IIoT platform can be connected natively or through gateways. Encrypted and secure at all times.

Visualize energy data

Collected data is the first step towards understanding and tangible expert knowledge. This step is followed by the visualization of the data, because this turns masses of data into small, easily understandable data morsels.

With the right visualizations, data becomes comprehensible, so that, for example, major consumers or deviations can be discovered.

Analyze energy data

Visualized data allows conclusions to be drawn. Even with a relatively unspectacular representation of data in a graph, you can find out if energy consumption is increasing without an obvious reason. Often, a comparison of time periods is sufficient.

When companies discover these anomalies, they can react accordingly.

Take actions based on energy data monitoring

Decide what steps you want to take next. Make these decisions based on the data you have previously analyzed.

Repeat & success monitoring

After you have derived and implemented measures, you can easily check the success of your measures with an energy management system and adjust measures if necessary.
