AZZO offers various service models, from turn-key installation and power quality analysis to simply supplying units and data access to your preferred electricians or consultants.
FREMONT, CA: AZZO has introduced EnergyX Portable, the world's most advanced portable metering platform. EnergyX Portable is a cloud-connected portable meter and software platform that provides insight into both power quality and energy performance on any site. With secure, built-in cellular connectivity and QR Code activation, live data and visualizations are provided within minutes of connecting.
EnergyX Portable delivers insights for customers to establish actions needed to achieve a good return on investment. Where most portable meters are designed around hardware only, EnergyX Portable is a complete hardware and software platform designed around customer business needs. EnergyX Portable takes advantage of AZZO's EnergyX IoT cloud platform to deliver insights and recommendations typically found only in enterprise energy and power management systems. EnergyX Portable gives customers access to a wide range of applications, including high-speed monitoring and analysis of harmonics, power factor, disturbances including direction detection, power quality standard compliance, in-rush currents, and energy bill verification and demand management planning.
Some of the business-oriented capabilities of EnergyX Portable are:
Correlating power quality issues with load loss and asset damage, so you can monetize the impact of fixing issues. Many portable meters can detect power quality issues but cannot decisively correlate them with business impact during the event.
Indication of where a disturbance originates from so that you can identify who or what is responsible - whether a utility, a tenant or an internal infrastructure.
Validate compliance with multiple PQ & energy efficiency standards (EN50160, IEEE 519, IEC 61000-4-30, SEMI F47 & CBEMA) so that you can identify non-compliances to distribution code requirements and assign responsibility and action plans for improvement.
Detect and visualize harmonics, sags/swells, voltage imbalances, over/under voltage conditions, and other high-speed event conditions on a continuous or conditional basis so that you can identify the causes and maintain a safe operating environment.
Detect power factor and/or harmonic issues so that the appropriate power quality equipment can be sized to reduce utility bill penalties and ensure asset life expectancy is realized.
James DiLiberto, CEO of the AZZO Group of Companies, said, "This is one of the most advanced solutions AZZO has ever released and is the culmination of thousands of hours of detailed design and careful planning to ensure that both the installer and end customer get a safe, secure, and reliable solution for their power quality and energy management needs. Our engineers have carefully selected every component and programmed every module to meet and exceed international standards for electrical safety and to provide the most accurate and detailed data analysis from any portable meter. And all of this, connected to our cloud-based platform for real-time viewing and historical analysis."
The heart of EnergyX Portable is a utility-grade Class 0.2S programmable meter powered by Schneider Electric's proven ION technology and EcoStruxure software, with integrated cellular connectivity and extensive onboard logging for when coverage is unavailable. The meter can also be programmed with tailored conditional logic blocks built around electrical engineering fundamentals to suit each unique circumstance for specialized applications. As a result, EnergyX Portable can be adapted to any application. With multiple units installed concurrently, an advanced sequence of events and synchronized advanced logging schemes can be created, painting a real-time diagnostic view of any site condition.
