              ACD Grid-Management-System is our solution for safe, remote-controlled and bidirectional energy management of EE facilities in power grids and distribution networks. We offer a complete solution that allows you to regulate and administrate EE facilities to keep the power supply system stable according to the law on the energy industry (EnWG). The ACD Grid-Management-System is easy upgradable and can be installed parallel to existing control systems. Due to the operating of regenerative power generation facilities, safety of the system must not be endangered. According to the Renewable Energy Law (EEG), plant operators are committed to fulfill the technical and economical requirements of the § 6 EEG. Thus they give the network operator the possibilty to stop or regulate current facilities in case of bottlenecks. ACD’s Grid-Management-System consists of:
              • The ACDIPT-Server establishes the connection between all participants
              • The E-Tracker serves as transfer unit in the field

A Nurse chooses locally a resident on the terminal, takes a photo and is directly able to draw the wound on the touch-screen terminal. The photo can be allocated to a new or an existing wound number. This kind of documentation offers two advantages: The photos are automatically allocated to a resident (with calendar date, time and wound number). On the other hand saves the photo contact-free all needed survey data. Subsequent you are to readout all relevant data on the PC. The PC program can either transfer all data to an external planning softwar or archives them and offers additional functions like analysis and progression graphs.

                            • Our production locations in Achstetten and Neustadt (Orla) offer ideal manufacturing conditions, maximum product safety and utmost quality on the latest machines.

                              Based upon proven hardware and software modules, we develop proposals; create initial design drawings that we then substantiate together with you in order to create requirement specifications / technical specifications. This results in the creation of a tangible prototype / functional sample.

                              During the next stage, the prototype is equipped with the functions that you desire. These functions may consist of electronic modules, software components or special characteristics that result in the product perfectly meeting your requirements. The result is a pilot production model.

                              Are all requirements fulfilled, ACD Group accompanies the rollout and subsequent operation with your trusted project team.
