Are you interested in Energy Management Systems (EMS) and want to learn more about how your building can connect to it? Pulse Energy's EMS can collect real-time energy data from virtually any metering system whether it’s an old fashioned utility meter or a modern IP system.

This webinar was an overview of how various energy metering systems connect to Pulse. It included:

- a brief overview of the architecture of a typical energy management system and explain where Pulse EMS fits in
- a description of how Pulse connects to the three most common types of energy meters
- an explanation of how Pulse software is deployed at new client sites by Pulse engineers

How to connect your building to an energy management system

  1. 1. How to Get Pulse™ Running in Your Building Presenter: Jamie Hargreaves, Lead Systems Engineer Deployment Services Pulse Energy
  2. 2. GoToWebinar Control Panel Hide the control panel Write questions for Jamie
  3. 3. Presentation Outline • Pulse™ Energy Management System (EMS) Overview • How we connect to • Energy Meters (socket and panel types) • Direct Digital Control (DDC) or Building Automation Systems (BAS) • Centralized Databases • How is Pulse™ Deployed? • Q&A
  4. 4. Pulse™ EMS Overview • Pulse™ Connector – Data logger • Communication Protocols – Modbus & BACnet/IP • Electrical Energy, Natural Gas, Steam and Water Meters
  5. 5. Building + Pulse™ Connector
  6. 6. Connecting to Panel Energy Meters • The Pulse™ Connector can integrate with any Modbus enabled meter. • All parameters collected in the meter can be transferred to the Pulse™ EMS. • How do I know if my meter is Modbus capable? Modbus RTU or Modbus TCP/IP
  7. 7. Connecting to Socket Energy Meters • The Pulse™ Connector can integrate with socket meters that have a KYZ dry contact module. • The generated pulse train is proportional to the energy consumption measured. • How can I tell if my socket meter has a dry contact module? kWh / count
  8. 8. Connecting to DDC/BAS Systems • The Pulse™ Connector can connect to any DDC/BAS that is BACnet/IP compatible. • The Pulse™ Connector simply registers as a foreign BACnet device and logs the appropriate energy variables. • Is my DDC/BAS BACnet/IP compatible? BACnet /IP
  9. 9. Connecting to Data Servers • CSV, HTML, HTTP file transfers. • Push or Pull data structures. • Custom Solutions. • Pulse Energy API. • Can Pulse™ connect to my centralized data centre? File Transfers
  10. 10. What is the Pulse™ Connector compatible with? DDC/BAS Energy Meters Database • Any meter or system that is Modbus or BACnet compatible. • Any meter or system that can produce a KYZ pulse. • Any data source that can transfer data through the internet. • What if I don’t have any metering at my building?
  11. 11. How is the Pulse™ EMS deployed? 1. Initial Site Assessment / Technical Scope 2. Hardware Installation / Software Integration (Pulse™ Connector) 3. Account Access and Training
