    Optimization of a lighting system using the "Energy Monitor" software

    Optimization of a Lighting System

    At a production site of a customer of OPTENDA, the lighting system was converted to LED. It was foreseeable that this conversion would entail a significant saving of energy, which was easily proven in the Energy Monitor software.

    However, the tracking of the conversion also revealed another saving potential: Due to the grid analysis in the Energy Monitor, faulty settings and a defect in the automatic control of the plant were detected, causing the lighting system to be continuously activated at times. This was remedied quickly and easily by means of a few clicks, thus saving even more energy.
