Tinytag: Understanding Power Usage and Energy Efficiency in High Consumption Facilities

  • 9 Jun 2023

For higher consumers of electricity such as those in the manufacturing sector, power usage monitoring and energy efficiency measures are of particular importance. The Tinytag Energy Logger is a portable data recorder which can monitor electricity consumption in individual pieces of equipment in order to help identify where potential energy usage savings can be made.

Celab, based in Hampshire, designs and manufactures high reliability power supplies for military and commercial applications. With 2000 square metres of manufacturing space housing a variety of equipment and processes, Celab are a relatively high user of electricity, typically 55,000 – 70,000KWH/month. Richard Clifford, Quality Manager at Celab, purchased a Tinytag Energy Logger in order to understand the power usage of individual pieces of equipment.


The Energy Logger monitors the equipment to identify where potential energy usage savings can be made. As a result, various changes are implementable in the future.

Celab chose the Energy Logger primarily as a straightforward means of measuring three phase power consumption.

Richard Clifford comments: “We have found the data logger easy to use. Three phase measuring has involved gaining access to the individual phases within the equipment housings.

“Compiling measurements has taken some time as we have needed periods of equipment downtime in order to gain access: however, the results we have obtained have allowed us to identify where savings can be made, particularly when equipment is in idle mode.”
