Power Submetering Saves Money and Informs Energy Planning

Posted on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 by Packet Power Team

You don't know the future cost of energy (otherwise you'd probably be cornering the energy futures markets right now). But it's a safe bet energy prices will continue to rise. 

Higher energy prices mean there is more value than ever in tracking your power consumption. Submetering systems allow you to gain a more precise understanding of what drives usage. You can add metering to track at the room, equipment, subsystem or end customer levels. You can then use the information to accurately allocate costs, identify and eliminate waste, optimize usage and plan for future needs.

Rescuing Stranded Smart Devices In Your Facility

Posted on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 by Packet Power Team

You’ve invested in smart monitoring devices – power strips, meters, ATS’s, temperature sensors, gas flow meters, and leak detectors. They’re in the desired location, next to the equipment you want to monitor. But your facility’s layout can make it difficult to connect metered devices to your network. Running data communications wire may not be possible due to physical limitations. Or the cost of running wire is too prohibitive.

The result is a stranded monitor. Packet Power has a cost-effective solution.

Wired vs. Wireless Power Monitors [VIDEO]

Posted on Thursday, January 20, 2022 by Packet Power Team

Power monitoring is essential for efficient, cost-effective facility management. The stakes are even higher in critical facilities where power or environmental anomalies can lead to expensive equipment damage and customer services failures.

Power monitoring helps identify and resolve problems and proactively manage power usage. This enables facilities managers to control costs, limit the risk of outages, and respond faster if there is an outage. You can get the data from your power monitor through a wired connection or any number of wireless technologies. Here is how your options compare.
