What the Judges Said…
“It is great to see technologies applied to energy management systems that allow for improvements. This type of technology may have applications in large facilities where the use varies greatly day by day, and during different times of the day.”
PDI’s WaveStar Infinity is a monitoring and metering solution for power distribution equipment. It’s real-time data collection, advanced visualization, and detailed alarming with revenue-grade accuracy enable users to do fault-detection, energy management, and tenant billing with high efficiency, according to PDI.
WaveStar Infinity provides metering and monitoring of key electrical and performance measurements such as voltage, current, power, frequency, energy, power factor, temperature, and breaker positions. The color touchscreen display has an intuitive user interface and full-functioning remote access via computer or mobile device, make it easy to visualize, configure, and manage, the company says. The product launched in December 2017.
WaveStar Infinity has a number of features, including full Ethernet communications throughout, which contributes to speed and accuracy. Local and remote display of data include a 7-inch color touchscreen display locally and an HTML 5-compatible web server that provide the same visualization on a computer or mobile device. This enables productivity at a data center and in the control room, PDI says. A one-line diagram shows the state of the equipment in real time.
Optional monitoring features include branch circuit monitoring, sub-feed monitoring, panel-feed monitoring as well as breaker position status, equipment door position, programmable output relays, plus additional equipment voltage and current monitoring and metering with field-retrofittable hardware and software. These monitoring options enable data center operators to fully optimize energy management and operations, according to the company.
PDI says that two key unique features of WaveStar Infinity that contribute to operational efficiency are its color touchscreen display with a modern UI and its ability to do native setup with local and remote access.
By combining high-speed, high-bandwidth Ethernet technology with an optimized communication protocol, WaveStar Infinity makes information available to users in real-time. Having the right data at the right time to make the right decisions to optimize their equipment, facility, and business requirements, contributes to users being able to achieve sustainability goals and reduce operational expenses, according to PDI.
