Wireless Power Meter Enables Enhanced Energy Conservation
Emerson has introduced the first WirelessHART Power Meter, making electrical demand and consumption measurement available via a secure and reliable network across numerous markets. In an ongoing effort to help customers face the challenge of meeting more stringent energy standards and improve equipment reliability, Emerson incorporated WirelessHART technology into a revenue-grade wireless power meter to deliver a unique measurement solution that will greatly improve energy efficiency and sustainability. WirelessHART communication technology ensures secure and reliable data transmission.
The power meterâ€™s small physical footprint and WirelessHART technology makes it simple and quick to install, enabling businesses to monitor voltage, current, power, energy, and other electrical parameters on single- and three-phase electrical systems in real-time with revenue-grade accuracy. Real-time monitoring of electricity consumption and instantaneous demand enables more granular energy management and effective equipment monitoring, securely and reliably.
â€œThe introduction of the Wireless Power Meter to processing, industrial, cold chain storage facilities, data centers and more will enhance energy saving capabilities and reliability in existing infrastructure through a secure and robust wireless network,â€ said Sandeep Nair, president of Emersonâ€™s Therm-O-Disc business. â€œWe are enabling customers to better understand their power usage, power quality and therefore improve their energy efficiency.â€
The new power meter is another option for Emersonâ€™s customers from the industryâ€™s largest and broadest portfolio of pervasive sensing technology, a critical foundation to the Industrial IoT.
