Energy Management and Reporting
The Reliable Controls® range of MACH System controllers come with a variety of built in industry standard communication protocols which allow direct connection via High Level Interface to Energy Management monitoring equipment (electrical and thermal energy meters) using the same protocols without the need for expensive gateways. Pulse output devices (water and gas meters) are also catered for using built in I/O.
All MACH System controllers are capable of storing both trend log data and runtime log data. To allow historical data to be stored proprietary data archiving software is used. RC-Archive is the Reliable Controls® data acquisition software which provides long-term, continuous archiving of data collected by both Reliable Controls® MACH System controllers and third-party BACnet devices.
Both active and archived trend/runtime log data is viewable via the various Web interface solutions offered by Reliable Controls®. This data is able to be exported to Microsoft Excel or text file format for quick interrogation. Third-party software packages can be used to query the underlying Microsoft SQL database used to store the archived data. IES is able to provide assistance with specific report generation and formatting requirements.
