This project is based on meteranalysis and in conjunction with PSW Building Consultancy
Within the new testing facility each monitoring bay can have multiple utilities: electricity; cold water; hot water; and gas. Each of these is metered and connected to a logger which sends minute by minute data to meteranalysis. A test bay is selected depending on which utilities a particular product uses and for each test the start and stop time is recorded. From the metered data this provides accurate test results on consumption for each product. To start the products being tested are: washing machines; dishwashers; electric and gas ovens; and fridges. Other products and test types can be added later.
