Inflation is an important issue in our economy. Energy prices have risen sharply in recent years, and this has led to a considerable burden for companies. Energy-saving measures are an important topic in many companies. Not only can costs be reduced through electricity saving potentials, but the environmental impact can also be reduced. An essential component here is the hardware. By using energy-efficient components and reducing standby losses, a significant contribution can be made to saving energy.
Terminals on saving mode
Countless energy consumers are connected to the power grid in an office building or in production facilities. From coffee machines to large machinery systems, valuable electricity is constantly flowing. Many devices are only used temporarily and yet the electricity meters run at full speed. If all these devices were put into sleep mode, a lot of energy could be saved. ISGUS has realised this idea and equipped its time recording terminals with an energy-saving function. This function is called GREEN IT. It saves a whopping 50% of the energy consumption. If the terminals are not used, they automatically go into energy-saving mode after three minutes. In snooze mode, only a very low power consumption is needed. Only when the terminal is activated via the touch display does the unit return to full power. Particularly at night, on weekends or holidays, the environmentally conscious terminals go dormant for a longer period and reduce consumption to a minimum.
The complex production processes are often an opaque field in which energy costs quickly skyrocket. This makes it more important to compare effort and result and, in addition to the general costs, to transparently display the energy consumption. For this purpose, ISGUS has developed the ZEUS® production data capture software. The programme is based on many years of experience and a high level of expertise. With ZEUS® production data capture, large amounts of data are collected and linked to complex correlations. The more precise the data, the more transparent costs and services become. Quantities, time units and quality are the clocks that are individually adjusted to each production process.
