Energy Efficiency App

 

Siemens

Siemens Smart Grid’s Energy Engage Mobile is the company’s first mobile Web application that brings energy consumption information directly to consumers’ fingertips and helps utilities connect with their customers. Users can track electricity, water or gas use in near real time and view their estimated bills. The mobile-enabled site displays account alerts and tips plus price information, allowing users to see current cost of electricity per unit and shift usage to off-peak times to avoid higher energy rates. The Energy Engage Mobile website and application is powered by the eMeter EnergyIP platform, the leading software platform for smart energy data management.

IEC-compliant Ethernet Switch

 

Moxa

Moxa’s PowerTrans PT-7528 series is the world’s first Ethernet switches with MMS data modeling to fulfill the requirements of the IEC 61850-90-4 standard outlining network engineering guidelines for Communication Networks and Systems in Substations. Support for IEC 61850-90-4 means that Moxa PT-7528 Ethernet switches can be controlled, monitored and managed via a power supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system, which is critical for reliable electrical substation operation and for building more intelligence and more complete automation into power substations. Plus, it eliminates the need for additional network management software. To detect substation errors faster, the switch offers Fiber Check, a Digital Diagnostic Monitoring (DDM) tool, for fiber diagnostics. The PT-7528 series includes a wide range of models to provide multitype port configurations. Its modular design makes network planning easy and allows greater flexibility by permitting installation of up to four modular fiber ports and 24 fixed 10/100BaseT(X) RJ45 ports.
