Reliable energy data capture and plausible evaluation

visual energy 4 is an open solution for reliable and continuous energy data capture, automatic monitoring and plausible evaluation. It is compatible with the following data sources:

  • Manual meter reading
  • Mobile meter reading using Android smartphones
  • MSCONS data import from the energy provider
  • Automatic capture of meter readings (electricity, gas, heat, water) using standard Modbus measuring devices.
  • Automatic capture of meter readings (electricity, gas, heat, water) using M-bus devices via M-bus / Modbus gateway
  • Automatic capture of meter readings via OPC, e.g. M-bus, BACNET, Profibus, etc.
  • Automatic meter reading and load profile measurement (electricity, gas, heat, water, ...) using KBR eBus measuring devices




visual energy 4 not only records the readings, but also automatically verifies their plausibility on the basis of the mapped supply structure. As a result, the error-prone creation of virtual measurements is a thing of the past, as is virtual data maintenance in the event of changes. The system reliably prevents measured values and energy flow directions from being mixed up. Furthermore, fuses in electrical networks can be monitored, reactive power compensated and power peaks effectively reduced.

visual energy 4 can be used in individual companies, companies with several locations (branches) or in clouds with several different projects on the same server. Without any additional costs, any number of users with individual access to locations or individual media can be created.

visual energy 4 has the following organizational structure:
