Monitoring your organisation’s energy use can be the gateway to significant reductions in energy use, cost, and carbon emissions.

  • All reductions in the use of energy and other resources will improve your company profitability
  • Identify wasteful practices, inefficient equipment, areas of high or unexpected/unnecessary consumption and opportunities to reduce energy use, cut carbon emissions, and lower costs.
  • Improve energy efficiency & reduce environmental impact throughout your site(s)
  • Implement energy, carbon, & cost-saving measures and immediately see the results.
  • Confirm on-going savings from improved energy management practices.
  • Apply tariff costs to energy consumption to check bills.
  • Allocate accurate energy costs to production.
  • Use real historical data in tariff selection decisions.
  • Identify electricity supply problems due to overloading and circuit imbalance.
  • Help meet your ESOS, ISO50001, and SECR obligations.

A comprehensive on-site energy monitoring system or cloud-based solution can help you achieve all of these and more.

For smaller sites or circuits where permanent installations cannot be justified, a Portable Energy Monitoring solution can be moved from circuit to circuit to provide the essential energy use data.

In short, kW is the unit of load, work or demand. In electrical terms it is a rate of use. Whereas kWh is a consumption unit for measuring an amount of electricity consumed. For more details see, kW or kWh: Electrical Energy Unit Confusion

ATLAS loggers receive pulses from any type of resource meter (electricity, gas, water, steam, etc). The meters send a pulse signal each time a certain amount of the resource has been used, e.g. 5 kWh electricity or 10 Litres water.

The ATLAS loggers count the number of pulses they receive on each input channel into 15 or 30 minute periods.

The AtlasEMS software collects this resource use information from the ATLAS loggers, stores it permanently, and provides comprehensive analysis & reporting tools to facilitate analysis of the data. For more see How do ATLAS Energy Management Systems work ?

This largely depends on the specifics of your site or organisation. But we can provide some pointers

This is again something that is largely dependent upon your type of organisation but as a general example, by analysing the data collected by a permanently installed energy monitoring system, or portable energy monitor you can see patterns of use and, when combined with knowledge of production, building occupation, or other workings of your organisation, can identity possible overuse with for example equipment or lighting being left powered unnecessarily.

Analysis of data from individual machinery, lighting circuits, or production lines for example can confirm or otherwise the efficiency of existing equipment and provide the basis of a proposal to upgrade or replace equipment.

Again, this largely depends on the type of organisation you are, and your analysis will adjust over time as you dig deeper into your organisation’s energy use, but questions may include:

  • Are we being billed correctly?
  • Is the equipment being left on unnecessarily?
  • What is our baseload and what can be done to reduce it?
  • For manufacturing, what is our energy use & cost per product? Is this cost being correctly factored into the sale price?
  • Are some areas/departments/production lines more efficient than others? If so, why?

See the installation guides at:

Profile Installation Guide

Profile Phase by Hand guide (if autophasing is not possible)

Profile Single Phase Installation Guide

Profile V HV installation guide

If you have further questions on the use of your Profile then please contact us.

In the case of the Profile V, yes, using the two wattmeter method as described in the Profile V HV installation guide

Profile IV cannot be used to monitor HV circuits, but in some cases can be upgraded to Profile V. Please contact us with your Profiles serial number if this is required.

In most cases, yes. By simply connecting only the phase 1 coil and voltage probes (in the case of the Recon T).

For the Profile Portable Energy Monitor see the Profile Single Phase Installation Guide.

Care should be taken when analysing data from single phase surveys as report totals may include floating values picked up on phase 2 & 3 coils. The ProPower 3 software can be set for single-phase surveys when loading data specifically to eliminate this possibility.

Yes, we have a limited number of Profile’s available for hire on a weekly basis. Please contact us for more information or to check availability.

The latest version of the ProPower 3 software for the Profile Portable Energy Monitor, along with software installation & use instructions can be found here

If you have an existing licence key for the PP3 software, it can be re-used with the latest version. If not, and you wish to upgrade from ProPower 2 or earlier, please contact us for an upgrade cost.

In most cases, yes. Please contact us with the Profile serial number for confirmation of upgrade suitability and cost.

The measuring circuitry in the Profile does not tend to drift significantly over time. However, if you suspect an issue, or require calibration documentation for auditing or other purposes, then please contact us for a cost for re-calibration or repair if necessary.

Yes, please see Profile Energy Monitor App. Due to hardware constraints no iPhone version is currently available.
