Centric Energy Systems (CES) specializes in systems that help you understand and report your energy use before, during and after the bill and identify opportunities to increase energy efficiency. Energy is complex. Each organization is unique. CES consults with you to define and design ways to capture energy information you can understand, visualize, and report. CES has worked with a variety of clients including manufacturers, educational institutions, service companies and process facilities. Our customizable systems and approach make energy information accessible to you and empower you to improve your operations.

 

Get the Specifics
Is reporting energy usage and costs difficult because you have multiple buildings or a wide array of equipment?

Learn More

We can use combinations of meters at various locations to capture energy use in ways that can be combined into higher levels for reporting. We employ many products and solutions to provide you with valuable, accurate data.

For example: We can use DCM on utility meters, SCADA System for interval (time blocks of energy) and demand calculations (convert to match utility demand capture), Historian and Report Writer to produce timely reports to departments. Optionally, we can also use Analytics and Dashboards enhancement to get control of decision making, so you can answer to your accounting department.

Reduce Demand
You know all too well that energy usage comes at a price. Do you need to reduce energy demand?

Learn More

Our solutions and products are custom-tailored to your facility and equipment, and everything we do supports the goal of helping you reduce costs, monitor energy usage, and improve efficiency.

For example: We can design a SCADA system connected to multi-function digital metering and/or utility meters, which allows the easy collection of consumption data. Processing the consumption data through the SCADA system allows the calculation of demand and peak demand for individual circuits and the entire plant. Correct design ensures correlation between the equipment demands and the plant demand. This enables the facilities' engineer to identify the individual load contributions to the plant demand. As a result, operating changes can be made to reduce demand and the associated costs.

Energy Monitoring and Visualization
Simply put, we design custom solutions to help you monitor and visualize your energy usage, but we take a unique approach to energy monitoring and visualization. Rather than prescribe a cookie-cutter system design, we work together.

We believe you know your organization and energy needs best. We seek to design and build systems that help uncover the answers to your energy questions, relying on your experience and insight as our local expert/the client. Wherever your energy system is at today and whatever energy questions you're facing, we're here to partner with you.

Data Collection Module
Centric Energy Systems provides a variety of data collection modules. The basic function of a DCM is to collect raw data from a device that does not support Ethernet connectivity and make the data available to the energy system over a network connection.

Learn More

Our consumption DCM collects pulse contacts from a consumption meter. It accumulates total consumption and calculates average flow so the system can obtain both consumption data and flow data from a consumption style meter. Common consumption meters are utility electric meters, gas meters, and water meters.

Our flow DCM collects current flow and calculates consumption based on integrated flow. This DCM takes an analog input, typically 4-20 mA from a flow meter. It calculates total consumption based on the measured flow in a short time interval and accumulates total consumption from the short-time interval consumption. Typical flow meters include steam and compressed air.

Centric also makes several other DCM modules to allow connection of non-digital devices to a network and the energy system.

Data Collection & Visualization
Data Collection is performed by one or more computers that communicate with end point metering devices, protection devices, and RTUs. The system gathers and acts on the collected data.

Learn More

Actions include:

  • Energy calculations
  • Combination of values to present higher level results (such as building totals from individual meters)
  • Historical trending
  • Alarms
  • Control

Control may be achieved either directly or by connection with other systems, such as building automation systems.

Data Historian
Data Historian collects data from the Data Collection agent and stores it in SQL database files. Historian can be configured to capture all data, or it can be set to only capture data when a value changes by a specified amount.

Learn More

As a result, the quantity of data to be saved can be controlled. Historian makes a logical connection to the Data Collection agent over the network. If that connection is disturbed, Historian will automatically backfill when the connection is restored. Data is viewed through a web interface using Internet Explorer from any computer.

Data Historian generates detailed, convenient:

  • Data Tables
  • Graphs
  • Reports

Advanced Analysis
Our Analysis Package runs on a separate server. It can connect to the Data Historian, Data Collector, or other data sources. It collects data into a SQL database and provides users with the ability to perform combinations and filtering then feed the results to graphics outputs.

Learn More

It includes the ability to run preconfigured calculations to give metrics on energy performance throughout a facility and to combine those metrics across the entire organization. Its Site Dashboard enables you to easily access information on electricity use, natural gas use, and electricity production for an entire site using your own computer.

Advanced Analysis also includes a Building Dashboard, which provides a clear indication of the amount of electric energy being used for lighting, HVAC, and manufacturing within a large facility.
