Services:

  • In-depth guidance on energy data management with visual energy
  • On-site assessment of the situation by sales engineers and project planning 
  • Development of suitable energy management concepts

Good to go – without any stress

Our service department takes care of a quick and smooth implementation. Hardware and software components are perfectly coordinated and integrated into our operational structures in accordance with the best practice principle. This way, we make sure that visual energy provides you with plausible and reliable energy data from day 1.

Services:

  • Hardware: Transmitter configuration, plausibility check of the measured values, integration of the measuring points into the system, checking the bus communication
  • Software: Creation of structural plans, linking meter and data points, setting up cost centers and energy benefits, creating users and rights for customer-specific visualization
  • Server: Software implementation on the customer server, installation and configuration of the web server, setting up the SQL database, bus master connection

ZF Friedrichshafen AG

»Clear and simple«
Two people at our plant manage over 800 measuring points for various media using visual energy. The system is clear and intuitive, easy to operate and guarantees a high degree of operational safety and reliability thanks to permanent monitoring. Warnings and alarms are sent by e-mail and inform the user in good time in the event of predefined thresholds being exceeded or fallen short of – helping us to avoid unwelcome surprises due to production stoppages.
Meisinger Thomas, operation and maintenance TGA

Siegesdorfer Petrusquelle

»All of our energy costs under control – thanks to visual energy«
Since we started using visual energy we have even greater transparency of our energy consumption and have been able to identify considerable energy-saving potential. The visualization of our energy consumption has enabled us to improve our energy efficiency.
Hermann Stadler, CEO

Puma

»The perfect toolbox for energy managers.«
visual energy gives energy managers a toolbox which caters to all of their needs efficiently and effectively. visual energy is a holistic approach to energy data management. Software and hardware are ideally matched, making it possible to create or adjust all of the measuring points, evaluations and analyses in next to no time at any time.
Joerg Rauhtaeschlein, Senior Facility Manager

Stiftung Attl

»Short payback period«
With visual energy we are now able to display the energy consumption of our estate transparently, bill consumers proportional to consumption, and spot anomalies in consumption at an early stage. It has also enabled us to cut our energy costs in the long term. The investment will pay off quickly.
Markus Dullinger, Head of technical management

BAUERFEIND

»Energy data recording with open interfaces to the building management system«
For several years we have been using KBR visual energy with conviction to record our energy requirements. Due to the open interfaces in visual energy (OPC, Modbus) the system is very flexible and thus connects to other BMS systems. This enables us to also record non-system data in correlation to energy consumption. Thanks to the web-based user and administration interface in visual energy, proprietary software is no longer required and it is therefore possible to provide relevant data and reports to all areas of the company on a user-specific basis.
Sebastian Mitscherlich, Head of Object Management

BORBET

»Uncovering energy potentials«
visual energy shows the energy managers, but also each individual who is significantly involved in energy consumption, a multitude of possibilities to create evaluations of energy consumption, to establish a transparency of energy consumption and thus to uncover energy potentials.
Marcel Karpf, Energy Manager Borbet Inc.
