A PEAR provides consumption or RTEC data as standard but can also optionally provide detailed PEA data if required.
The mechanism for configuring this has been completed. Summaries of volts, amps, power factor, kva and kvar can be captured. The same five parameters can also be used to send alerts if values fall outside the range set by the user. The same can also trigger recording the PEA data. Other options allow PEA data to be collected on a rolling basis, switched on seasonally or on demand.
More detail is provided on the meteranalysis page.
In addition, we have added a dedicated solution for monitoring transformers. As well as the electrical parameters: volts; amps; power factor; power output; and kvar, we can monitor the oil and ambient temperatures in real-time at half hourly intervals. This not only shows the efficiency, but can be used to detect faults or highlight when maintenance is required.
