Over time, the energy management system and SCADA system supplied by Datawatt has grown to include over 200 remote telemetry units (RTUs) around the hospital. Although the system was initially built with the D05 RTU model, it has gradually been updated to the latest version, the DSG RTU. The DSG offers maximum security and even more flexibility than its predecessors. The RTU combines with 600 remote Input/Output (I/O) units placed in various cabinets, to offer complete control over where power can be directed.
The DSG is a cost-effective, state-of-the-art RTU for integrated network applications. It’s designed for maximum security, yet is still flexible enough to be used in complex applications. Datawatt, now Ovarro, has combined the DSG RTUs with other components to create a full-cabinet system that can be installed easily around the hospital.
Despite beginning in 2010, the project between Erasmus University Medical Centre and Ovarro is still expanding, as older buildings are being demolished or renovated. Not only is Ovarro responsible for maintaining the energy management and SCADA system, it is also continually adding to it — a simple task, thanks to the system’s modular design.
For this project, it was essential to collaborate with the customer so Erasmus University Medical Centre could gain the most from the expertise Ovarro brings to the table. Customers aren’t just looking for a supplier, but a partner — whether Ovarro is supplying remote monitoring and control systems for hospitals, water networks or other applications.
As pressure mounts on the European electricity grid, power cuts may become more common. Fortunately, this needn’t be a major concern for Rotterdam’s Erasmus University Medical Centre. With its automated energy management and SCADA system supplied by Ovarro, backup power can now be supplied almost immediately and exactly where it needs to go. Going forward, the system’s data can be monitored and analysed, which gives the medical centre even more control over its power system to keep the hospital keep running safely.
