Building Infrastructure Energy Management
Intelligent decision making about reducing electrical energy usage requires accurate
data from the various power circuits within the building. With good information comes good decisions.
Businesses large and small are under increasing economic and environmental pressure to reduce their electric power consumption. The cost of power directly impacts their bottom line, driving organizations to find innovative ways to conserve energy and mitigate rising utility rates.
New programs, such as Pacific Gas & Electric's Peak Day Power program in California, offer the promise of lower rates during off-peak hours, but higher rates during afternoon hours. In some area, PG&E has implemented tiered rates with pricing as high as $13.00 per killowatt hour during demand times, and Time of Use billing is on the close horizon. To avoid higher costs and realize serious savings, businesses must find a way to efficietnly reduce consumption during peak pricing hours.
The PM8 - Cyber Switching's Answer to Reducing Building Energy Costs
CyberSwitching’s PM8 is the ideal solution, a turnkey intelligent power management
system that controls power (load) and monitors energy consumption in real time on mulitple circuites without the need for costly
meters or timesr. The device provides scheduled or manual on/off control of eight individual circuits and can monitor the current
supplied by each output using CT coils for currents from 15 Amps to 3200 Amps.
The PM8 enables one-touch load shedding, allowing organizations to respond instantly to brownout and demand response conditions. When power is restored, adjustable stagger start of circuits helps protect plugged-in hardware. Scalable from a small offcie to a large campus, the PM8 provides a detailed view of consumption from individual panels and branck circuits, data center racks, lighting segments, office space partitions, lab space, or connumications closets.
Additional features include baseline usage information, remote management through the Cyber Switching Enterprise Management Console (EMC), high/low current alarms for added protection , and Cyber Breaker, the virtual circuit breaker, for supplemental circuit breaker protection on an individual outlet basis.
The PM8 is an intelligent, cost-effective, scalable, and highly reliable power management system for controlling and monitoring electric consumption. the PM8 can help organizations significantly reduce power costs and provide greater visibility into power usage into power usage in commercial and industrial environments.
Power Management with the PM8
The PM8 integrates seamlessly with Cyber Switching's
Energy Management & Control (EMC) web application software, providing an intuitive user interface
to simplify effetive energy mangement and streamline measurement and verification activities.
With the ease-to-use EMC dashboard, busy facility professionals can log in from any location at any time to quicky obtain the energy data they need. Access control enables administrators to establish unique access and user permissions for each folder, function, and device for ultimate security and flexibility. Click HERE to learn more.
