LOS GATOS, Calif., June 21, 2002 — Reliable Power Meters (RPM), a supplier of power quality and energy monitoring solutions, has been selected by Frost & Sullivan as recipient of its prestigious 2002 Market Engineering Technology Innovation Award.
This award is presented in recognition of the “significant product performance contribution to the industry” demonstrated by RPM’s advanced, Full Disclosureà¢â€ž- measurement technology. Full Disclosure technology, an integral part of all RPM power monitors, eliminates the need to set thresholds or trigger levels to record power quality disturbances including sags, swells, transients and flicker.
“The most important function of a power monitor is to capture all of the relevant data,” said Michael Daish, RPM’s Director of Marketing and Sales. “With Full Disclosure, the guesswork is eliminated.”
Sara Bradford, Industry Analyst and principal author of the February, 2002 Frost & Sullivan study, North American Power Quality Service Markets reports, “With Full Disclosure technology, RPM has successfully expanded this area of power quality service as monitoring products previously only measured above or below manually set thresholds. Products with this technology can profile and analyze all aspects of power — simultaneously capturing all power quality parameters.”
Full Disclosure technology is the foundation for RPM’s innovative power quality predictive analysis capability. By capturing every power quality incident, however insignificant, a Power Quality Indexà¢â€ž- can be established and tracked using RPM’s Scenarioà¢â€ž- software to uncover insidious degradation in power system performance before equipment failures occur that can result in downtime of mission-critical systems.
