Powerstar round-up issue 66
Welcome to the latest round-up, summarising and showcasing the highlights of the latest news, activities and events of Powerstar and the industry for you.
1) BETTING ON SAVINGS IN SOUTH AFRICA
Our latest voltage optimisation case study is for South Africa’s Boardwalk Hotel and Casino, which offers 5-star accommodation just minutes from Hobie Beach.
Following a full site evaluation, it was discovered that the incoming voltage of the hotel was higher than necessary for the electrical equipment on-site but that it remained at a stable level.
Due to this, a Powerstar voltage regulation system was installed which has delivered an impressive electricity consumption saving of 24% since its installation.
2) MAXIMUM VISION
As part of the continuous development of our products, we have upgraded the Powerstar MAX to replace the HMI interface with an online remote monitoring platform.
To help users get to grips with this platform we have produced a video that explains how to use the platform and the variety of metrics that can be analysed from the remote monitoring platform.
3) THE JOURNEY TO CARBON NEUTRALITY
With the need to progress towards carbon neutrality rapidly growing more urgent as the battle against climate change intensifies, many businesses are considering what the best approach to achieving carbon neutrality is.
With the advent of Industry 4.0, it is now possible to integrate a number of smart energy technologies to create a comprehensive strategy that is key for the achievement of carbon neutrality.
In this blog piece, we have explained how these technologies can provide different benefits that can combine effectively to lower the carbon emissions of the site.
