Flowmeter Used in an Energy Monitoring System Application

We recently met with a customer in India who needed to replace a flowmeter in an Energy Monitoring System (EMS) application in a commercial shopping mall.

Energy Monitoring Systems (EMS) continuously monitor and record chiller operating data. The EMS utilizes flowmeters installed in each chiller to measure flow. Temperature sensors are located in the inlet and outlet of the evaporators and condensers. A kWh meter measures the power consumption of each chiller. The data from each of these devices is collected and recorded within the control panel, which is then sent to a report generated in the cloud. This kind of system can accurately report the data used to manage energy and operating costs.

Because the space was occupied, the application couldn’t be shut down for maintenance or repairs. This meant that we needed to look into alternative solutions that wouldn’t affect system operations with unnecessary downtime.
