In business, it is just as important to learn from one’s mistakes as in life. When mistakes are made, or if things are allowed to slip leading to a sudden unexpected breakdown in your ability to carry out your company’s activities it is important to take steps that will prevent the same thing happening again. The cost of an unplanned break in service can be felt in many ways, the financial loss is one thing, customer perception is another and employee morale is yet another. Where energy is concerned, a power monitor offers the ability to keep tabs on your systems to anticipate when a problem may arise and support management’s ability to learn from what went wrong and correct processes if necessary in order to prevent it from happening again.
Here at CSE Uniserve, we have listened to the stories of our many and varied long-term customers and taken the knowledge gained back to our design, manufacture and innovation hub in order to come up with new solutions to the problems that face industry in the modern era. While well-known brands make up a key part of our business, we are committed to exploring new and alternative technologies that may, in fact, be a better fit for a company’s specific issues.
Learning from past experience is important, but once this has been done it is just as important to take measures to prevent and control where possible. Where power and energy are concerned there are major benefits to be derived from the use of energy monitoring systems.
First of all, rather than hope your employees will spot a fault early on, this device can detect problems as they are presenting. The advantage here is that you have the ability to do something before things get worse and you will undoubtedly save a lot of money by negating the possibility of sudden breakdowns during critical production times.
Having a device to analyse continuously recorded waveforms enables management to identify irregularities such as transient harmonics and power outages, by comparing this data against the manufacturer’s baseline. An inefficient operation can, therefore, be quickly snuffed out through early diagnosis of problems.
Wouldn’t like you to know how a short or electrical spike came to happen? An energy monitoring system is a highly useful forensics tool. It is possible to trace back the chain of events and pinpoint where it all went wrong. In rectifying such problems, repairs or replacement of similar issues in other machinery can be actioned thereby preventing a similar breakdown and premature ageing of equipment.
Would just like to say thanks very much for your flexibility to work in with us and your assistance in carrying out your side of the Commissioning of the LRS. The LRS unit has operated faultlessly for us, and has played a crucial role in ensuring a very smooth return to operation of our Mill.
Thanks for working in with our site electrical teams. Your sharing of knowledge and data captured during the mill starts was excellent and your understanding and experience gives us full confidence in the setup of the LRS gives me great confidence in the equipment going forward.
