Energy logger used to monitor hospital’s electrical consumption

  • 18 Feb 2015

The Tinytag Energy Logger, from Gemini Data Loggers, monitors current and voltage to determine power and energy consumption

Sandwell and the West Birmingham NHS Trust uses the Energy Logger to examine electrical distribution and deliver sub-metering information across its Hospital Estate.

The Estate’s network includes a range of electrical distribution equipment, which all needs to be closely monitored.

The Tinytag Energy Logger has been designed for use in facilities with a high energy consumption, such as the hospital.

The device can monitor single and three phase power usage.

It is attached to the inbound LV cables in the back of low voltage panels and uses coils to monitor the current in each phase of a three phase supply.

A standard 13A wall socket is also used to obtain voltage information.

Once the Energy Logger has recorded the data, it can be used to form power usage reports and determine equipment sizing.

The data can then be analysed and assessed to assist with the NHS Trust’s energy reduction drive.

The portable device also records ‘Power Factor’ (PF) data.

When it has been collected, the recorded data is downloaded to a PC, where it is presented in Tinytag Explorer.

Within the programme, data from separate logging runs can be combined in graphs and tables which allows for easy comparison and analysis.
