Reinach, Switzerland --- (METERING.COM) --- February 27, 2008 – Automatic monitoring and targeting (AMT) is a powerful energy management technique which has been re-invented over the last few years for use in automatic half-hourly electricity metering. Increased environmental regulations and changing business demands underline how energy saving will be central to business thinking in the process industries in the years ahead.

AMT systems provided by Endress+Hauser assist in minimizing wastage, and provide reports and data updates quickly, so energy use can be effectively audited and energy performance improved. From the data analysis, patterns of energy usage are identified and energy efficiency targets set. Energy intensive processes can then be measured to these targets and energy waste reported and eliminated. The data analysis will also demonstrate the effectiveness of any energy saving measures that have been implemented, providing a record of the savings and return on capital investment.

Endress+Hauser offers a complete AMT solution for metering, data collection and analysis to reduce site costs by up to 20%. Because energy analysis is only as good as the data input, the company supplies customers with the right choice of utility meter, and also offers a selection of data loggers or Fieldgate remote terminal uUnits (RTUs). The data can be transferred to existing SCADA systems or even to a packaged energy monitoring and targeting suite such as eSight, to provide comprehensive energy analysis and create customized electronic reports.
