Energy Event to showcase new MTEM launches
Energy saving specialist Marshall-Tufflex Energy Management will be exhibiting its full portfolio of products at the Energy Event, including its newly launched domestic voltage optimisation system and a wireless sub-metering solution, both of which have already created much interest in the market.
Voltis Home represents a major step forward in domestic voltage optimisation, delivering all the benefits of Marshall-Tufflex Energy Management’s established Voltis commercial system but in a mini version suitable for the home or buildings with electrical supplies of up to 60Amps. For domestic users this means electricity savings of as much as 18% are realistic and possible, which equates to as much as £150 per year for the average three-bed semi occupied by a family of four, based on today’s average electricity prices.
Voltage optimisation is not a new technology – Marshall-Tufflex Energy Management already supplies systems to a wide range of commercial and industrial customers. It has taken major investment and clever engineering to adapt this technology for domestic use, enabling householders to take advantage of a highly effective energy saving method already widely used across a variety of non-domestic locations. The result is Voltis Home, a next generation system that reduces electricity usage, stabilises power supply and helps prolong the life of household appliances such as washing machines, fridges and freezers, tumble dryers, lighting, computers, microwave ovens etc. Voltis Home is manufactured in the UK and is straight-forward to fit – a qualified electrician can usually complete the task within an hour, with the unit installed between the electricity meter and the main consumer unit. Every unit has a visual display which means users can see the savings they are making.
The Voltis commercial/industrial system will also be on display at the Energy Event, as will the suite of Sinergy sub-metering solutions, including new-launch Pulse Plus, a wireless sub-metering product.
This GSM enabled DIN rail unit mounted in a small consumer enclosure covers a range of 10-5,000Amps using Sinergy clip-to-cable or Flexeclamp CTs. Pulse Plus will store time and date stamped current, voltage and PF data within its onboard memory. Data can then be extracted at any time via the host PC(s) but it is normal for a data collection routine to be set up on an automatic daily download basis. CSV files can be exported to Deltrax 5 graphical energy use analysis software supplied with Pulse Plus, alternatively EXCEL provides a tabulation of average KW/KVA demand over a 15 minute integration period with daily KWh totals. MTEM works closely with third party software houses and will recommend multiple channel monitoring and targeting software solutions.
The Energy Event will also showcase the new Sinergy k-Wattch hand-held Energy Monitor which is the little brother of Sinergy e-Tracker and offers a robust and highly portable mains or battery-operated energy analyser that can measure both single and three phase devices, giving instant readings or recording and storing data for download to a USB memory stick. Data can be analysed using Sinergy’s Deltrax software. Its non-invasive 32mm CTs simply clip round cables and monitor power factor, power, voltage or current, up to 1,000A. It is particularly relevant for users with no permanent solution for energy monitoring in place and who require a flexible, portable system that can go virtually anywhere and give instant readings.
