A new application allows users of ABB industrial and standard drives to see exactly how much energy they are saving.
Built-in parameters work out the energy savings in kWh and MWh, the financial saving in a local currency and the CO2 emissions equivalent of the energy saved.
The energy consumed when the fan or pump is used direct-on-line is compared with the energy used once the drive is installed and running.
The drive then calculates energy savings in kWh or MWh with reference to this baseline and displays it in an easy to read way on its built-in screen.
The information can be used by plant engineers and energy managers to ensure the application is attaining its optimum level, as well as by financial controllers and board level directors interested in keeping a closer control on the operational expenditure of a plant or process.
