Potentially a “game-changing technology”
“This is has the potential to be a game-changing new technology,” said one judge about Schneider Electric’s panelboards. “Typically, to get the level of detailed circuit-by-circuit energy consumption this system purports to provide, a facility manager would have to install expensive metering systems throughout their location. By tying this data into the panel, the only cost to achieve this data is the incremental cost of this panel versus a more traditional panel. Most importantly, being able to see a facility’s energy consumption at this granular level allows for smart, targeted decision making.”
Schneider Electric’s NF Measurement and Verification Lighting Panelboards provide customers with more detailed visibility into energy use, enabling improved energy management and opportunities for cost saving and sustainability efforts. Facility managers will be able to isolate energy use within any facility using existing or customized building management software and to analyze the data to locate new opportunities for greater energy efficiency and savings. The Panelboards monitor energy usage on a variety of load types, including lighting, plugs, zones and spaces, allowing facility personnel to isolate energy use much more precisely.
This product is perfect for accomplishing energy-saving goals, obtaining LEED Certification points, and meeting code compliance. Another judge noted, “Incremental value and innovative aspect of this product is the increased level of detail/visibility at the individual circuit level. A good tool for companies and other institutions to have as they continue along their sustainability journeys… I suspect that this would be excellent to make a standard component of all new facility builds.” For use in large facilities or home and office buildings, the NF Measurement and Verification Lighting Panelboards are highly efficient. Additionally, they:
· Harness industry-leading monitoring capabilities for maximum power reliability;
· Support up to 84 individual branch circuit monitoring points through board-mounted individual CTs;
· Provide main metering capability through optionally provided CTs;
· Enable network communications via Modbus RTU;
· Are compatible with PowerLogic ION Enterprise PowerLogic System Manager Software, and PowerLogic SCADA software, providing reliable, end-to-end power monitoring and control.
