UPGRADE TO SAVE ENERGY

18 July 2008

Energy Optimizers has upgraded the smartphone and PDA software interface for Plogg Blu, its Bluetooth-based wireless power meter, to provide more convenient and intuitive monitoring and control of energy consumption by most types of electrical and electronic appliance.

Energy Optimizers has upgraded the smartphone and PDA software interface for Plogg Blu, its Bluetooth-based wireless power meter, to provide more convenient and intuitive monitoring and control of energy consumption by most types of electrical and electronic appliance.
The new Plogg Mobile Manager software uses an uncluttered menu system to display energy use data — including instantaneous current, voltage, power consumption, and electricity cost per hour — clearly, even on small mobile screens. Energy use patterns over time and cumulative energy consumption can be viewed and compared via bar chart displays. Logging intervals, local electricity tariffs and appliance names can be entered and edited easily on screen, and all data can be uploaded to a Bluetooth equipped PC for further analysis and storage.
Should wasteful or unnecessary energy use be discovered, all appliances connected to a Plogg can be turned on/off instantly or automatically using four separate timers controlled by the smartphone or PDA.
Plogg can also monitor and log over time the energy contribution of small-scale local generators such as solar panels and wind turbines, supplementing the kWh reading provided only as a visual display by the proprietary system.
Notes for Editors:
Energy Optimizers Ltd is a designer, manufacturer and distributor of innovative energy saving products and technologies for government, industrial, commercial and household markets. Part of the T H Brown group of companies, it is based in Grimsby, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom.
Plogg is the Energy Optimizers range of integrated power (kWh) meters and data loggers, the first in the world to provide wireless data delivery to PCs, laptops, PDAs and smart phones. Connected between an electrical appliance and the mains supply, a Plogg can use Bluetooth or Zigbee wireless communications to display various electricity consumption parameters in real time, monitor them over a longer period, and switch the appliance off and on remotely. Its simple plug-and-socket design allows easy installation even in locations with difficult access. Plogg is intended for use by government departments, business managers, facilities managers, householders and indeed anyone that wishes to identify and eliminate sources of wasteful or unnecessary electrical energy use. The Bluetooth version, Plogg Blu, works with smartphones and PDAs running Windows Mobile 5 or 6 (Broadcom or Microsoft Bluetooth protocols) and on Symbian phones (e.g. Nokia and Sony Ericsson) with Java enabled Bluetooth and data storage (JSR-82 and JSR-75).
