many hours of administrative time by generating and saving the test protocols of the residual currents to produce comprehensive reporting on system availability and performance.

How does it work? During set-up POWERSCOUT®

easily and

precisely adapts to the relevant plant and to meeting special demands and desired measuring devices and quantities. Residual currents, neutral conductor

monitoring or stray currents are all within the scope of POWERSCOUT®

and critical

conditions or emerging problems within an installation can be detected at a glance to prevent system failures and reduce the chances of potentially disastrous fires. By using the POWERSCOUT®

commissioning wizard users can easily create meaningful visualisations - or dashboards - for each type of plant with only a little information required to tailor it to their specific needs – simple and quick. They can also specify the intervals at which they would like to receive automated reports. The visualisations can be adapted for

each display unit whether that is a mobile phone, laptop or computer and provide worldwide access. Thanks to end-to-end integration, the Bender system can be put into operation in less than 10 minutes.

Proactive maintenance partnerships The comprehensive real-time reporting offered by POWERSCOUT®

and its ability

to organise and present data remotely through web connections opens up huge potential advances for preventive and proactive maintenance by in-house teams or external service partners. POWERSCOUT®

can monitor, analyse

and predict the behaviour of electrical systems, and that means if a fault is identified the team can take immediate action to rectify that fault even before the facility operator is aware that a fault exists. The solution might be as simple as a

remote adjustment or software fix, or it could involve ordering in a part and despatching service personnel to site. Importantly the fault can be dealt with at the earliest opportunity to maintain availability of the system and reinforce resilience.

Continuous monitoring As any medical person appreciates, continuous monitoring is far more effective than random tests in assessing the health and wellbeing of critical systems. POWERSCOUT®

continuously collects

measurements and generates user-specific reports. This well-founded database allows real trend curves to be represented and the causes of malfunctions to be found. POWERSCOUT®

sends graphically

processed reports at specified intervals – automatically and customised to reflect a site operator’s priorities by taking into account relevant data. The automated report on residual

currents forms the basis for measuring without switch-off by means of periodic verification. Safe operation of all electrical

installations and equipment is only possible if proper condition can be permanently ensured. The IEC 60364-6 determines test intervals and types. The requirement for continuous monitoring of stationary electrical installations and equipment can therefore be complied with if measures for continuous measurement of the insulation resistance or the residual current have been taken.

How POWERSCOUT® helps teams

work more effectively: Technical Director The Technical Director of a healthcare facility or authority is responsible for providing proof that electrical systems are in sound working order. That means submitting conclusive documentation, which must be painstakingly pieced together from the available data – a time- consuming process which is often prone to errors. Moreover, the Technical Director has an interest in identifying causes of recurrent faults at an early stage, so that downtime can be reduced for internal clients. It is also important for the Technical

Director to reduce the amount of “live work” performed by his or her team to ensure the safety of the team and a more targeted deployment of manpower to improve effectiveness and efficiency. Studies carried out in Germany

indicate that archiving of reports using POWERSCOUT®

worth of labour per year.

IT staff The IT (Information Technology) staff of a health authority are tasked with maintaining the IT infrastructure to maximise cost-effectiveness and resilience. Disruptions and faults in the IT

environment can quickly rack up costs as normal working is disrupted. POWERSCOUT®

increases availability

of IT infrastructure and reduces risks of downtime, and the continuous monitoring across multiple sites can minimise the need for local computer maintenance, thereby saving on manpower resources. By analysing critical electrical variables, reduces the risk of power


failures in the IT environment, and energy monitoring helps to identify potential savings and reduce energy costs in the long term.

Electrical maintenance teams A facilities manager can spend a lot of time compiling data from the electrical system in order to perform the necessary long-term analyses. To do this, data tables must be maintained but ensuring the inputs are correct is a challenge because manual data input is always prone to errors. Electrical maintenance teams can work

more effectively by minimising the number of unscheduled tasks and the number of on-site interventions as a result of the predictive and proactive maintenance enabled through POWERSCOUT®

. Moreover, because the software is web-

based, error analyses can be conducted remotely. This reduces the need for lengthy tests on the electrical system itself and saves on travelling time.
