Measuring energy consumption for virtual machine activation
When designing the concept for virutal machine activation, the Homag Predevelopment department relies, among other things, on Olmatic’s intelligent solutions. Using sample workpieces, energy consumption measurements are put in place to determine the power consumption of HOMAG throughfeed machines (Edgeteg S-500). The aim of these measurements is to validate the energy consumption models of the virutal machine activation. This effectively minimizes the risk of any planning errors, particularly regarding connected machine loads, and optimizes machine and system quality.
Thanks to Olmatic software, the actual and effective values of the active power of the electrical consumers can be recorded and saved. In addition, the parameters of the power consumption in HOMAG machines are recorded simultaneously at several different measuring points. The data transfer takes place via a central Olmatic gateway, which automatically analyzes all data stocks and visualizes them for the customer.
“All of Homag’s individual requirements could be implemented without major difficulties. The measurements are automated and require little monitoring or intervention on the part of the user.” Ludwig Albrecht, Senior Manager Predevelopment at HOMAG GmbH in Schopfloch.
