Structured energy data acquisition
VBASE monitors and logs the energy consumption of the entire system and of individual areas, as finely tuned as the technology allows. The recorded values can be displayed in a dashboard as live data or replayed in a historical, cumulative view of weekly, monthly or yearly progressions for later analysis. For this purpose, VBASE has ready-to-use modules that greatly simplify the connection of the meter hardware and the generation of reports. A consumption meter is integrated into the software with the VBASE Smart Meter function module within a few minutes and automatically forms approx. 90 consumption values which can be further processed.
In addition to energy consumption, VBASE also permanently monitors the quality of the electricity supply network and detects fault and differential currents. By continuously monitoring the electrical systems, faults and failures can be detected and averted at an early stage.
With regard to Green IT, Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) is an important component in the move towards more environmentally friendly information and communication technology. This is because the infrastructure with uninterruptible power supply, power distribution, cooling, air conditioning and similar facilities is responsible for up to 50% of the energy requirements of a modern data center. With a reliable monitoring and management system, energy requirements can be precisely recorded, analysed and optimised.
