The Energy Sentry electrical peak demand control systems measure the electric peak demand at the meter. When the 15 minute average demand approaches the demand limit threshold loads are shed on a rolling basis. The autmated solution is ideal for HVAC system and water and process heating. A manufacturing facility would utilize the demand control system in a manual mode, with the system activating warning lights and outputting data to large displays on the factory floor. The demand data can be utilized by production scheduling to minimize electrical costs.
The PulseConnex electrical demand monitoring system measures the peak electrical demand at the utility meter and sends the data to a remote server. The data is then available from anywhere via a web browser. Energy managers can then find sources and times of demand peak and implement corrective measures.
