Socomec’s Digiware system deployed in Sandton
October 2018, Electrical Power & Protection


ElectroMechanica (EM) has supplied the Socomec Digiware system to a large South African corporation’s head office in Sandton, where it is being used for electrical metering in compliance of a Green Star rating.

EM is the sole distributor of Socomec’s metering offering and was contracted as a hardware supplier in this regard. Product manager Artur Socha explains that the system can cover a large number of metering points, is highly accurate, and also allows for significant space-saving in the electrical panels. The solution needed to be flexible and modular, and ultimately be able to translate data back to the building’s power metering and building automation system software.

The total number of metered points exceeds 1500, from LV main distribution down to sub distribution board level. The metering of all power distribution units in the data centre was also included in the scope, thus adding to the overall requirement of providing metering hardware with a small installation footprint within the panels.

The Digiware system comprises technological innovations that revolutionise metering, bringing a high degree of flexibility to installations and making connection and configuration easy. These innovations combine to deliver performance in terms of accuracy and functionality. This makes it an effective solution for metering consumption, and measuring and monitoring the quality of electrical energy in industrial or commercial applications requiring a large concentration of points with a small footprint. “These were the main reasons that the system was selected for this mega-project,” comments Socha.

The 12 000 square metre building is located in the heart of Sandton and in 2017, it received a five-star Green Star rating from the Green Building Council of South Africa, making it one of the largest new-build projects to receive this rating to date.
