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.

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.
