Using M2M Solutions when Implementing ISO 50001
2N® SmartCom PRO and 2N® SmartCom remote monitoring equipment can be used as a part of ISO 50001 certification, making energy management of properties and companies more efficient.
What is ISO 50001?
ISO 50001 is a globally valid standard that is a comprehensive and systemic tool for introducing energy management in companies. It is compatible with other ISO standards, such as those for quality (ISO 9001) and the environment (ISO 14001). Just like them, it is based on the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) principle.
So ISO 50001 forces a company’s management to constantly perfect its energy management. Energy monitoring is an integral part of implementing this standard. Large companies of more than 250 employees in the Czech Republic have to implement the ISO 50001 standard, and have to do so starting 1 July 2015. A possible alternative for such companies is an energy audit.
How can the 2N® SmartCom PRO and 2N® SmartCom systems be used?
Both terminals serve as a part of ISO 50001 for the connection of individual devices and their subsequent remote monitoring. This involves, for example, consumption meters for electricity, gas, water, heat and independent appliances. So 2N® SmartCom PRO and 2N® SmartCom provide a constant overview of energy consumption. This is necessary for revealing wastage, timely detection of errors, planning and control. At the end of the day, our M2M solutions help reduce the costs and energy requirement of the operations monitored.
Example of use of 2N M2M solution
The 2N® SmartCom PRO and 2N® SmartCom systems have been used for a long time by Enerfis, which is behind the development of the on-line energy management tool Enectiva. And so our “SmartCom solutions” are used in various installations that monitor energy consumption not only of administrative buildings and production premises, but also by individual technologies (e.g. lighting or HVAC).
