The WattNode® Cloud makes commercial and industrial submetering easier than ever. Data is made available in several formats, both real time and historic trends. The built-in display helps with site diagnostics, and a battery back-up enables reporting of outages. Cellular and Ethernet connectivity, ability to add other sensors, meters or thermostats and full remote configuration access makes the solution unique in the marketplace. The WattNode Cloud is expected to be released to Sales later this quarter.
“This is Sub Metering 2.0,' says Samuel Davenport, CEO of CCS. 'With this new solution, we move from a complex environment with many different components into one efficient, functional solution. It makes all your meters, equipment or facilities accessible in one interface,” continues Davenport.
Thanks to a focus on easy installation and minimal on-site configuration, the WattNode Cloud solution makes it cost-effective to monitor anything from single units of equipment to large facilities or multiple locations. Remote diagnostics and support enable instant updates and configuration via the secure web portal, ezeControl.com.
“Rather than adding communication to an existing PLC or logger, our platform is designed for life on the Internet,” says Anders Rehnvall, CEO of eze System. “The ezeio system provides the secure communication link for the WattNode Cloud and allows the user to generate reports, alarms, trends and access live and historic data from any web browser.”
The WattNode Cloud adds a long list of previously unheard of capabilities to the professional energy monitoring market. Features such as instant remote control, ability to add temperature, pressure, RH or other sensors, support for thermostats and additional submeters for gas, water or electricity are standard with the system. The cloud-based software supports multiple simultaneous users, PDF reports, dashboards, email and text alerts as well as integration with ERP or billing systems via an open API.
“This is simply the solution that has been missing to make energy management available and effective,” says Cynthia Boyd, Sales & Marketing Director for CCS. “Our customers has been asking for an accessible, flexible system that is cost-effective and that they don't have to re-invent for each installation,” says Boyd.
Successful energy management projects require reliable and easy data access, clean installation, high quality metering and reasonable cost. The WattNode Cloud exceeds all these requirements and without unnecessary hardware or complicated software.
“It is incredibly exciting to be able to present a solution that offers more functionality, without being overly complicated and at a lower cost,” concludes Boyd.
