Arbitrary resources from any smart meter
The NETx MaRS Module is not limited to any resources or meter types. It allows you to use any meter (KNX, BACnet, Modbus, M-Bus,...) for any resource (electricity, water, air, gas,...).
Analysis of consumption values
The NETx MaRS Module helps you to collect the consumption values of smart meter and to store them in an SQL database. Afterwards you can export the daily, weekly, monthly or yearly consumption as table or chart. You are able to compare the values of different meters or different periods.
By defining cost rates (e.g. price per unit, base rate,...) you can calculate the costs of the consumed resources. These calculations can be compared and exported in different formats.
Hierarchical cost center structure
A cost centre is an organizational unit where different meters are assigned. The structure of cost centres can be organized hierarchically. In addition, the assignment can be done on a percentage base. Depending on the specified structure and the assigned meters, consumption and cost calculations can be performed.
The results of consumption and cost calculations are displayed as NETx MaRS documents. For each document you can choose whether consumption values or calculated costs shall be presented. Also the period can be chosen freely. To compare the different costs and consumption values with each other, it is possible to show multiple meters, cost centres or periods in one single document. For reusing documents, you are able to save them as templates. If you want to reuse a stored document afterwards, the according configuration is loaded and the actual consumption or cost values are shown.
In addition to the visualization of the consumption values, you have the possibility to define actions e.g. periodical sending of documents per e mail or exporting them to other systems.
The NETx MaRS Module supports the definition of indicators. Indicators are data points that influence consumption values like e.g. temperature. Usually, indicators are used as reference values.
The NETx MaRS Module allows you to add virtual meters in addition to physical ones. These virtual meters are not assigned to real devices.
You can give different users different access rights.
