Power Management

About Power Management

POWER MANAGEMENT

Power Management of a site, shelter, cabinet or facility poses challenges.  Many customers are working towards a greener approach.  Our solutions provide your team with one affordable solution for remote access to save time and money.  Our hardware solutions give secure, remote access to local devices and deliver you visibility of current status, commercial power outages, power consumption and alarms.

TENENT METERING

Monitor power consumption for tenants and bill them appropriately.  Tenant metering is easy with the addition of a power meter.  You will receive exact usage for billing and reporting.  One study we did exposed a utility transformer that was on the client’s side resulting in an additional $10,000 annual savings after resolved with the utility company.

OPEX REDUCTION

Monitor specific network elements such as your HVAC usage; the primary network element driving up your monthly utility bills.  You can also monitor every single source that utilizes power to see which source is using too much power; ask us about our cost study.  These types of approaches are proof for OPEX reductions by working to reduce your overall utility bills.

BACKUP POWER - CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION

Power management also comes in the form of backup power.  Planning for backup power is critical to keeping your site up and running.  Monitoring your generator back up power allows you to maintain from a remote location, provide reports to States or Counties on hours of run time, amount of fuel on site or fuel loss/leaks.  Ability to see remaining run time allows you to successfully deploy refuel trucks to sites that will run out of fuel first.  Knowing when you have lost commercial power is critical, although you might have a generator, true commercial power loss notifications are important to get immediately.  Sometimes your generator doesn’t start or the generator is running when commercial power is present.  All of these items are critical to a fully functioning facility.

MONITOR POWER PLANT/RECTIFIER

Connect directly to your power plants; current and voltage, battery and rectifier information is all remotely available.  It is like you are standing in front of the controller.  These items are useful in order to plan for repairs or assess issues without having to visit the site.  Many use this information when planning for expansion as it is easy to collect remotely.
