Miele: Modern data management in laundries

Monitoring energy, water and detergent consumption made simple

(PresseBox) (Gütersloh, ) In order to get a handle on laundry consumption costs on an on-going basis, Miele Professional is now offering integrated data capture for all modern washer-extractors and tumble dryers. The display on machines with Profitronic M controls provides information, for instance, on current water consumption and laundry loads as well as on energy and detergent consumption. Data from up to 300 cycles can be saved using a special operating data module and, where necessary, ported to a computer for further processing.

This meets all the requirements of a modern quality management system: In collating data lies the key to optimisation. Exploiting optimisation potential results in more efficient reprocessing of laundry and, over the long haul, significantly reduces costs.

Programme data can be relayed to a computer via a serial interface for storage. There, the information can be presented in table form using a computer programme developed in conjunction with a software specialist. The data from washing and drying cycles can, alternatively, also be printed out as protocols for archiving.

Furthermore, Miele's sales force offers computer-based feasibility studies as a special service to clients. This puts laundry operators in an even better position to analyse costs and keep a check on expenditure. The objective of professional data evaluation is to check all laundry machines with a view to improving their efficiency. The system can even come up with a tailored concept to maximise energy-saving potential.
