TEMECULA, CA -- Regulating and conserving energy are major concerns for businesses large and small, and many are now seeking to reduce costs by altering their operations and establishing new energy-efficient practices and policies. To help facility managers, building occupants, and executives accomplish this, Opto 22 and Vancouver-based Pulse Energy have combined their expertise to offer customers the visibility and data they need to understand their energy usage, pinpoint problems, and reduce costs.
Through their newly formed business partnership, Opto 22 and Pulse Energy have made it significantly easier for commercial and industrial customers to monitor their energy consumption, gather usage data, and use it to reduce their utility bills. Specifically, Opto 22’s OptoEMU Sensor™ energy monitoring appliance couples with the Pulse™ energy management software to connect to customers’ metering devices, electrical panels, machines and equipment, and then deliver comprehensive energy-related data over standard networks and the Web for viewing and analysis.
“Opto 22 has a reputation for quality, durability and ease of use,” said Pulse Energy CEO David Helliwell. “The OptoEMU hardware appliances supply our software with reliable, easy-to-read streams of building energy data and are the ideal platform for our energy management software.”
One of the easiest ways for businesses to cut operational costs is by better managing their energy usage. Towards that end, this new partnership merges Opto 22’s considerable experience as a provider of monitoring and data acquisition hardware, with Pulse Energy’s Web-based Pulse energy management software and its powerful capabilities for measurement and verification, anomaly detection, and benchmarking.
“Pulse makes it easy to monitor, understand, and manage energy use,” says Opto 22 Chief Executive Officer Mark Engman. “The software gives engineering and automation teams, energy managers, and other decision makers the monitoring tools they need to quickly and easily understand, and effectively manage their facilities.”
