Energy Waste Demonstrated with Loggers and Cameras

March 4, 2014 By William Opalka

FlukeEnergy loggers, infrared cameras and thermometers are items in the energy manager’s toolbox when it comes to detecting and fighting waste.

Fluke says it has tools to show how to easily identify energy waste in facilities with tools that make energy waste easy to identify, but can save money with relatively little expense.

The 1730 Three-Phase Energy Logger is a tool with professional-level energy data gathering capabilities, Fluke says. With calendar-based energy logging, facilities can identify which aspects of their operations are consuming excessive amounts of energy.

The Fluke Energy Logger profiles energy usage in the facility, identifying opportunities for energy savings along with data.

The 1730 can:

  • Discover when and where energy is being consumed, from the service entrance to the individual circuits.
  • Compare multiple data points over time and build the complete picture of energy usage with the energy analyze software package.
  • Quickly understand specific points of energy loss.

To enhance the 1730’s capabilities, Fluke says to add a VT02 Visual IR Thermometer or the Ti125 Infrared Camera to identify energy savings both electrically and thermally. When using an infrared camera or a visual IR thermometer along with the 1730 Energy Logger, potential problems that could be wasting energy are identified. They can be quantified electrically with the 1730 Energy Logger.
