Issues and results
Unable to visualize the electrical power usage of manufacturing equipmentSucceeded in conserving electrical power by visualizing power consumption. As a result, CO2 emissions were reduced by 15.4 tons per year and electrical power costs by roughly 450,000 yen per year.
Key implementation points
Low implementation cost and easy to install.
Easily performed post-installation of a wireless current sensor on the manufacturing equipment with a clamp-type current sensor.
The dominant factors in the power consumption were visualized by calculating and graphing the rough power consumption from the consumption current measured over several days with the wireless current sensor.
・The customer analyzed the power consumption graph and found that the standby power consumption of the metal film deposition devices was high
・The rotary pumps for the metal film deposition device were improved as follows to reduce the standby power consumption
・Newly installed low-power-consumption rotary pumps
・Stopped high-power-consumption rotary pumps when they do not need to be operated
As a result of the above improvements, CO2 emissions were reduced by 15.4 tons per year and electrical power costs by roughly 450,000 yen per year
