Star Data Analytics’ award-winning performance optimisation and energy management system Ethos provides unique data-driven analysis to save customers money and reduce the impact on the environment.
Ethos is unique in its ability to not only monitor the energy consumption of a plant and evaluate how it is currently operating, but also to assess how it should ideally be performing to achieve maximum efficiency under all conditions.
Our standalone equipment collects relevant data from refrigeration plant by a combination of the following: a data logger with sensors, a network based data logger or a web API. These sensors collect and send data about the plant’s performance to a central control unit, accessible remotely via an online web portal. Ethos analysis software then measures the gap between the plant’s current and desired performance, and recommend a number of actions to increase efficiency and reduce energy consumption.
These insights are displayed on an online dashboard, along with energy usage data and equipment performance alerts to warn of any irregular behaviour. They also provide advice on specific and immediate actions to prevent unforeseen maintenance and energy costs.
