This chart visualises variances in the relative current your equipment is consuming over time.
How can it help you?
Use this chart to look for trends in your equipment's relative current consumption and discover how your equipment is changing.
By understanding the relative current consumption of your equipment, you can identify opportunities for improving energy efficiency, understand where energy consumption can be reduced, and better understand potential equipment issues.
How does it work?
The Measured Data Chart displays the relative current consumption of your equipment over time, as compared to the actual calibrated current (where applicable). For each sample that the FitPower sensor sends, a data point is plotted.
The left-hand axis of the chart represents the equipment's current consumption, and the right-hand axis measures the date and time. In this context, 'Current' indicates the actual current. This value will only be accurate if we (MOVUS) have internally calibrated this for you. The 'Sensor Value' indicates the relative current of equipment, and thus whether your equipment's energy usage is increasing or decreasing or time, and in what patterns.
A value of zero indicates that your equipment is not running, however, the other values along the y-axis are arbitrary and are simply there to help illustrate the degree of changes in energy usage.
Some trends to look out for include:
- An upward trend, especially if it is accelerating. This may be related to deteriorating equipment conditions.
- Recurring changes. These could be certain parameters affecting the way the equipment operates or could be related to process changes.
You can use the calendar feature at the top of the chart or drag the slider below it to adjust the date you are viewing, and the "Saves As" button allows you to either save the data as a CSV file or save the image as a PNG if you desire.
How do I access it?
The FitPower Measured Data chart can be found on any asset's Equipment Detail Page, under the 'FitPower Charts' tab.
The FitPower Charts Button will not be visible if your organisation has no FitPower sensors installed. If your equipment has both a FitMachine and FitPower installed, you can link the sensors and view both charts on the Equipment Detail Page. To do this, simply click the down-arrow next to "Edit" on the Equipment Detail Page.
