New Release 18.4 for IngSoft InterWatt available soon

Shortly before Christmas the current release of the software IngSoft InterWatt will be released - with many bigger and smaller Christmas presents for you: New evaluation functions, new features and extensions of the existing functions.

Performance indicators

Energy performance indicators are the central tool in energy management according to ISO 50001. In  the updated version of ISO 50001(August 2018), these performance indicators are becoming even more important. This also applies to environmental management according to ISO 14001.

The new task "Performance Indicators" in the EnergieMonitor supports you in applying these standard-complying performance indicators. The extensive support in defining an energetic starting point for the performance indicator is particularly helpful here. The influence variable analysis works at the touch of a button and provides you with standard-compliant documentation as well as a regression function. On the basis of this, you can accurately calculate the current savings.

In addition, performance indicators can be linked to targets. In this way, you can automatically see the degree to which the targets have been achieved in the system, i.e. at what point in time a target is profitable.

The performance indicators also completely replace the energy signatures from the Structure Editor.

 

 

Monitoring

The so-called monitoring supports your daily work with automatically recorded values: IngSoft InterWatt independently checks newly received values. There are two ways to do this: In addition to pattern recognition based on artificial intelligence, the user can define limit values himself. A defined circle of users can be informed if they exceed or fall short of these limits.

Up to now, such monitoring against limit values could only be edited in the Structure Editor. With the new release 18.4 you will find this function under the task "Limit value monitoring" in the Energy Monitor. The range of functions has been significantly extended: Previously, there was only a limited possibility for monitoring the consumption of energy input ranges, totalizers and meters. Now you are completely flexible in the definition of monitoring:

Any value that can be evaluated in IngSoft InterWatt can be monitored, for instance key figures. The new "Synthetic Profile" function can be used to define the limit value. This allows not only the convenient definition of day-time processes, but also the differentiation of day types. This allows you to easily define different limit values for weekends, vacation periods, etc..

Experience with monitoring to date has taught us that usefulness and acceptance strongly depend on how many messages the user has to process. The new limit value monitoring systems therefore have two major innovations:

  • Relevance conditions can be defined, e.g. that the user is not informed until at least three violations of a limit value have occurred in the last 24 hours.
  • A malfunction often results in many limit violations. If violations directly follow one another, they are combined into one message.

New evaluation functions:

The emergence of new tasks often leads to new demands being made on the evaluation functions: The adjusted basis of the performance indicator, the measurable target value, the influencing variables of the performance indicator, etc., are all important factors. But that's not all: A synthetic profile that depicts the course of the day can also be evaluated from now on in order to make the course of the day comparable.

With further additions, your evaluation options will be even better supported so that you can implement all your ideas in the software: With the new Min-Max limitation, you can only display values above, below or between certain values in order to take a closer look at them. The time division function helps you to compare days to which certain conditions apply, such as holidays or public holidays.
