CVM-NET 4+. Complies with the Energy Efficiency standards

Current situation

The current market standards establish the guidelines for the implementation of new systems that can manage consumption data, with the purpose of knowing how and when our installations are consuming energy.

The new European Directive 27/2012 EU will come into force during 2015, establishing a national objective for improving the efficiency of large companies. This obliges installation managers to have verifiable and quantifiable data about the different energy uses of their installations.

This information will be vital for achieving a better understanding of how each installation behaves and for controlling such behaviour, since one of the key objectives is to achieve a 20% reduction in the energy consumption of these installations.

These companies are obliged to perform external audits to corroborate the compliance of their systems with the new standards. Therefore, these companies have the option to install their own Energy Management System (EMS) as an alternative to performing an external audit.

In addition, some standards, such as ISO 50001, also applicable to SMEs, already recommend these types of systems with the purpose of measuring and quantifying the consumption of energy per zone and type of use, which are useful for the continuous improvement of different energy processes and systems.

When addressing how the system must be installed, the features of electrical installations are not always constant, i.e., many different single-phase channels often exist in switchboards. To this end, units that can measure different types of lines in a reduced space must be installed, avoiding the installation of new measurement sub-panels.

This is quite a critical point, since significant investment will be required to adapt the measurement system if the consumption analyzers cannot be installed in existing panels.


Solution

The new CVM-NET4+ multi-channel power analyzer has been specially designed for multi-channel applications in existing panels, providing information on over 750 electrical variables for the complete management of installations.

Read about its advantages:

 

Less space - Saves time - Reduces costs
CVM-NET4+
  • 4 to 12 analyzers in a single unit
  • Simultaneous measurement of single and three-phase lines
  • Data centralised in a single measuring point
  • Use of MC1 and/or MC3 efficient transformers.

CVM-NET 4+

 

CVM-NET4+-MC-RS485-C4 is a multi-channel power analyzer with compact dimensions that can measure up to 750 electrical variables with a centralised approach.

Its versatile configuration options enable you to take measurements from single-phase systems, three-phase systems or a combination of both.

The unit features a single threephase voltage input, saving time during its installation, in addition to combining up to 12 configurable current measurement channels, through the MC efficient current transformers.

The data gathered by the analyzer is transmitted via the RS-485 communications bus with the Modbus/RTU protocol to the supervision SCADA (PowerStudio / PowerStudio Scada / PowerStudio Scada Deluxe).

CVM-NET4+
  • Over 750 electrical parameters.
  • DIN Rail format.
  • Size of only 6 modules.
  • Reads 12 single-phase channels or a combination of these channels with three-phase current channels.
  • Current measurement with efficient transformers of the MC series (.../250 mA).
  • RS-485 Communications (Modbus RTU).
  • 4 programmable digital outputs.
  • Sealable.
  • Compatible with PowerStudio / PowerStudio Scada / PowerStudio Scada Deluxe software.

1. Installation

Saves space

Space restrictions often arise due to the large amount of units and wiring. Therefore, CVM-NET4+ features a connection mounted on a DIN rail, with a 6-module housing, which can be adapted to any type of electric panel.

Saves space

Saves time

Thanks to its design, CVM-NET4+ features a single voltage measurement connection, avoiding the connection of 12 lines at the same time, i.e., it is the ideal measurement solution for switchboards.

The use of efficient transformers of the MC1/MC3 series helps quickly connect the current channels, in addition to achieving a lower consumption than conventional transformers.

Saves time

Reduces costs

Save money by installing a single unit instead of up to 12 singlephase analyzers, 4 three-phase analyzers or a combination of both types of analyzer. CVM-NET4+ offers the same performance features in a single unit. 

In addition, you will be able to send information via Modbus RTU to the PowerStudio Scada electric energy management and monitoring software with a single communication cable (RS-485).

Reduces costs


2. Configuration

With a size of only 6 modules, the unit can combine 12 measurement channels (single or three-phase), offering a highly versatile unit. Therefore, the consumption of different lines can be measured, grouping this data through the PowerStudio, PowerStudio Scada or PowerStudio Scada Deluxe platforms. 

With such a configuration, detailed consumption reports can be prepared by zone and type of use, creating a system that is adapted to the new requirements and standards, such as the EN 16247 Standard or the new European Directive 2012/27/EU.

In addition, the unit features 4 relay outputs, so the CVM-NET4+ can control loads or alarms to improve the management of the installation. 

The versatility of the unit offers multiple configurations in a single unit:

Software

PowerStudio Scada and PowerStudio Deluxe electric energy management and monitoring software 

For some time now, CIRCUTOR has been developing robust and reliable tools that transfer electrical parameter or consumption information from remote measuring units or laptop devices to a centralised system where the data gathered can be checked and processed. This tool is called PowerStudio Scada and it covers all the necessary options for analysing the data gathered and taking decisions to make your installations energy efficient.

Efficient three-phase measurement transformers, specially designed for modular electric panels

The MC measurement system offers significant advantages to professionals during the power analyzer and meter implementation and installation phase in electric panels.

The MC3 system is composed of three efficient transformers in a compact arrangement; its dimensions make it a simple and innovating system for 63A, 125A and 250A panels.

The MC1 system allows line extensions in electric panels, by simply changing the transformer secondary, as it is a compact multi-range system.


Application

PUE Efficiency Calculation Scale

CIRCUTOR's headquarters are located in Viladecavalls (Barcelona) and they are a good example of the implementation of an Energy Management System (EMS).

We can classify the different types of consumption by zone and type of use thanks to the measurements taken by units such as the CVM-NET4+. Therefore, the task of classifying the types of consumption is relatively simple, always taking into account where, how and when electrical energy is consumed, helping take decisions associated with the improvement of electrical energy efficiency.

The installation is controlled with PowerStudio Scada energy management software, which can monitor data, produce graphics, tables, Scada screens, reports and alarms, recording all parameters in a database to guarantee system traceability.

In addition, another good example of where the application is used are the data processing centres (DPCs) in which the PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) is calculated as a variable that measures the efficiency of data centres.

To do so, the three-phase load measurements, such as the input power of the server room, UPS and air conditioning system power, must be combined with the single-phase loads, such as the consumption of the servers at the UPS output. Therefore, data associated with the PUE and UPS losses is gathered, i.e., data on the efficiency of the system.

Automatic hybrid switching capacitor banks OPTIM HYB

Ultimate accuracy in compensation

 
Not all installations need the same type of compensation unit

The ever more unbalanced systems together with the implementation of new digital energy meters capable of registering individual inductive and capacitive reactive energy in each of the phases has forced us to reinvent power factor correction.

 
Traditional capacitor banks do not guarantee reactive energy elimination

The use of traditional compensation systems, which measure on a single phase and compensating with three-phase capacitors, cause system overcompensation or under-compensation, and register reactive values from the company energy meter while failing to guarantee the elimination of penalties on the customers' bills.

Thanks to hybrid compensation (with 3 current transformers), the new system patented by CIRCUTOR allows us to compensate any kind of consumption with a fast connection of single-phase capacitors between phase and neutral using thyristors. These capacitors are replaced with three-phase capacitors when the three-phase demand is stabilised, thus leaving the single-phase capacitors ready for new fast compensation needs and/or imbalances in the mains.

THE SOLUTION. Optim HYB capacitor bank

Reinventing power factor correction

Hybrid capacitor banks

The changing in the world of mechanical energy meters for multifunctional digital energy meters, capable of measuring reactive energy phase-to-phase, is forcing us to change the concept of power factor correction.

In this new scenario, to guarantee complete elimination of penalties for reactive energy on user electricity bills, CIRCUTOR has patented its OPTIM HYB hybrid capacitor banks, capable of measuring like the company power meter and compensating the reactive energy individually on each of the phases.

WiBeee: Your consumptions in the palm of your hand

 

An efficiency expert always with you

In the current era of information, energy consumers must be able to obtain data on their electrical consumption, in order to be able to take action to improve the energy efficiency of their installations and to make substantial savings in their electricity bill.

Likewise, due to the difficulty of obtaining consumption data from the installed electronic meters, users do not have the chance to react before receiving their electricity bill.

To help us therefore understand how we consume energy and how to reduce consumption, CIRCUTOR is launching one of the most innovative products on the market in recent years: Wibeee.

 


 

What is Wibeee?

Wibeee is a consumption analyzer (single-phase or three-phase), which uses a Wi-Fi wireless connection for obtaining electrical data to facilitate decision-making when it comes to understanding the use of electrical energy.

The unit can be attached to any part of the installation, which helps you to detect any problematic points where energy is not being used efficiently, thus making a significant contribution to the reduction of energy consumption via the remote activation of alarms when the desired limits are surpassed.

In short, Wibeee is the ideal tool to make your electrical installations efficient, for finally taking control and deciding where to spend your money. Finally, a device with personality. Wibeee displays everything you couldn't see before.

  FA-WIBEEE-buen-trabajo-en

Once connected via Wi-Fi, you can immediately access the instantaneous data using your smartphone, tablet or PC, which allows you to view your electrical consumption in real time. In addition, Wibeee also sends all of the data to a server in the cloud server so that you can view and compare the various past consumption logs in a user-friendly manner.

With Wibeee you will no longer get a surprise with your electricity bill, learning to manage your consumption in a simple way.

Cable-free. Wireless system

 

Accurate measurement

Wibeee. Cable-free. Wireless system

  Wibeee. Accurate measurement
The entire system has been designed to monitor information over wireless communications networks. Nothing can come between Wibeee and you.  

You may be thinking that such a simple installation could result in loss of measurement accuracy, but that is not the case. Wibeee has a minimal error percentage and so is able to maintain the measuring guarantee that CIRCUTOR units have always been known for.


 

How will it help you?

Wibeee shows you the instantaneous and past electrical consumption data using any smartphone, tablet or PC, with the help of its integrated web server or via the free Wibeee Circutor app, available for iOS or Android. In other words, it enables a direct Wi-Fi connection so that you can view your data.

It is also possible to configure the consumption analyzer so that it sends the data automatically to a cloud server in order to log the data. With Wibeee connected to the Internet, you can view instantaneous and past data using your smartphone or via alerts configured by your smartphone. Connect to the web platform to consult your data, carry out analyses, configure your user profile, etc. The logs of the analyzer in the cloud are also fully integrable with any platform on the market.

Wibeee is therefore the ideal tool for making your electrical installation efficient, controlling and showing your savings and helping you to take the right decisions in terms of managing energy efficiency.

Consumption control, electrical savings

 

Comparisons are not tedious

Wibeee. Consumption control, electrical savings

  Wibeee. Comparisons are not tedious
Wibeee collects the necessary data on electricity consumption and helps you interpret them, know your consumption profile and save on your energy bill.  

Wibeee lets you analyse your installation(s) by making comparisons between more than one Wibeee or between different periods of time, if you wish. It lets you confirm that the actions you take for energy savings are getting their expected results.


 

It couldn't be easier to install, it's as simple as putting a magnet on your fridge!

The installation of any electrical metering unit can be a complicated task as it requires wiring space and time. Wibeee is extremely easy to install: in ten seconds it's done.

Our technology, which is attached via a clip, is based on the patented system DINZERO and consists of attaching the unit easily to the cable or simply to the upper part of an MCB (miniature circuit breaker). Once switched on, it will begin to convert the measured parameters into information that can be sent via a wireless connection.

New dynamic power controller with demand management

In recent years, CIRCUTOR has developed some of the most innovative and advanced solutions in the sector of photovoltaic self-consumption in Spain, leading initiatives and movements to facilitate the legalisation of installations interconnected to the grid for self-consumption with zero injection.

This has enabled CIRCUTOR to position itself as the company that offers the widest range of solutions in the Spanish market and with the most flexibility of control.

The range of CDP solutions from CIRCUTOR also enables a phase-by-phase control of the installations in order to take maximum advantage of the performance of the inverters. CIRCUTOR is reinforcing its commitment to offer solutions for photovoltaic self-consumption to the market, and is thus complementing its range of dynamic power controllers (CDP) by offering more options to manage the distributed generation of energy in the most efficient way.

As the icing on the cake to bring the year 2014 to a close, CIRCUTOR is launching the CDP-G on the market, the new Dynamic Power Controller with demand management. With this unit, a controlled injection to the grid can be guaranteed (or injection to the grid can be prevented, as in Spain's case). At the same time, maximum advantage can be taken of solar radiation surpluses for use in electrical consumption in installations.

The CDP-G incorporates all of the features of the CDP-0 and also includes new functions, making it a very flexible unit, in particular for use in the domestic and tertiary sector.

Some of the main features of the CDP-G are:

  • Capacity to control inverters from the leading brands
  • Use of surpluses of photovoltaic production
  • Monitoring via web (smartphone, tablet or PC)
  • Screen that shows consumption data, PV production, grid consumption and activation of manageable loads
  • Modbus/TCP communications for integration in SCADA

This makes it the ideal unit for optimising a photovoltaic energy installation for self-consumption in applications such as:

  • Managing heat pumps
  • Heating water with the use of thermal accumulators (swimming pools, homes)
  • Water pumping and irrigation applications
  • Production of compressed air

In this way, CIRCUTOR continues to be the leader in the sector of photovoltaic self-consumption with the most technologically advanced solutions on the market, thus offering better products to their customers.
