Bend, Ore. — March 16, 2016 — DENT Instruments, a provider of power and energy measurement instruments, along with Emerson, a leader in bringing technology and engineering together, have announced a strategic collaboration, making wireless power measurement a reality.
In an ongoing effort to improve equipment reliability and customer ease of use, DENT Instruments has combined its revenue-grade PowerScout 3037 Power Meter with Emerson's Smart Wireless technology to provide a measurement solution that will greatly impact energy efficiency and sustainability for a vast array of customer markets.
"DENT's versatile PowerScout Meters coupled with Emerson's WirelessHART technology and global reach creates a much-needed energy information solution for our mutual commercial and industrial customers,” said Christopher Dent, president, DENT Instruments. “The DENT-Emerson partnership is a perfect blend of complementary technologies that brings increasingly important energy information to the world."
This DENT-Emerson joint solution provides customers the following:
• “Easy to install” design and mounting features support plug-and-play deployment in new or existing WirelessHART mesh networks.
• Measurement of over 20 energy variables is available to meet users’ needs.
• Optimized connectivity for 99.999 precedent data reliability via WirelessHART’s self-organizing, self-healing mesh network technology.
• Highly secure network communication via data encryption, critical key management, and end-to-end security features.
The new Wireless Power Meter monitors voltage, current, power, energy, and other electrical parameters on single and three-phase electrical systems with revenue-grade accuracy. Continuously monitoring electricity consumption and power quality at submeter levels enables more granular energy management and effective monitoring.
