Removing large stand-by consumption can help you save both power and money. Stand-by consumption can be estimated using power sensors on the parts of your installations you wish to monitor. If the power consumption stays high all day, there is probably a room for improvements.
Sensors used: PowerMoni Spot calibrated, PowerMoni Pro or PowerMoni Pro-C.
Method: The sensor is mounted on the cable to the unit, device, or part of installation you wish to monitor. After a full day you can see how low the consumption gets, and hence the estimated stand-by consumption.
Alarm set-up: you can add a self-learning stand-by alarm, automatically warning you in case the stand-by raises significant. The alarm module is self learning, so no specific set-up is needed.
