2N® Energy Management
Remote Data Reading and Device Control
The 2N® Energy Management multi-utility solution reads data from all energy meters and sensors remotely, as well as controlling individual devices or circuits. The system evaluates collected data according to its configured criteria and automatically decides on further action. It’s elegant and proactive. For example, it allows the management of electrical energy consumption, the switching on or off of air-conditioning, heating and lights. 2N® Energy Management enables cost-effective oversight of entire buildings and is often the preferred example of cutting-edge automation in ‘smart buildings.’
Using a 2N® SmartCom PRO multi-utility data concentrator from 2N in this project provided an easy, effective and functional way of collecting data from various energy meters. The ability to connect various communication interfaces for terminal energy meters at the same time, led to very effective implementation, with a mere seven units covering over 100 connected measuring devices. During the installation, we appreciated 2N’s flexible response to non-standard situations that occurred during implementation.

A telecommunications network operator is looking for new solutions to expand his infrastructure. He selects the M2M solution for Energy Management, a system uniquely suitable for GSM/GPRS networks due to its low demands on speed and the volume of transferred data. He gains a comprehensive solution from 2N® Energy Management that allows him to gather data remotely from various meters, as well as remotely control connected devices.
A systems integrator looks for a solution to read energy consumption data remotely and send it to his own software application, as well as remotely control connected devices. He chooses the modular solution from 2N® Energy Management for its real-time overview of energy consumption without need of regular site visits to read data. He further takes advantage of 2N software to remotely manage devices and gather the data, along with the sensors necessary to monitor pressure, humidity and temperature, all within a single system.
Energy management firm
An energy management firm needs an energy optimisation system for a new building projects to achieve the greatest possible energy consumption savings. Thanks to the 2N® Energy Management solution, it gets a comprehensive program for the remote reading of data and control over equipment. So in its new building it will always have an up-to-the-moment overview of the state of energy consumption, as well as remotely controlling in real-time on/off monitoring.
The Cisco EnergyWise energy management system is a product developed especially for connecting devices without IP interface to IP networks, metering and controlling via their proprietary protocol. Typical devices include printers, heaters, air-conditioning, ventilation, elevators and the switching of electrical circuits. Integral within the 2N® Energy Management solution, management and administration of these devices is then handled centrally, using the Cisco EnergyWise Suite. This software makes it possible to monitor consumption and provides necessary analytical tools.
