PM-24 EdgeWare Power Monitor


Modern data center power monitoring systems look nothing like the basic electricity meters from which they evolved. Today’s systems comprise sophisticated metering devices, communication networks and software. By their nature, mission critical facilities such as Internet data centers are prime candidates for power monitoring systems. By employing monitoring systems to analyze system-wide historical and real-time power data, facility managers can reduce the cost of electricity and improve its quality and reliability. Where high accuracy metering, disturbance recording, transient detection or harmonic analysis is needed, there is no substitute for power monitors. Spiraling power demands and utility rates. Power sags, surges and outages. Heat-generating blade servers. Shifting utilization patterns in virtualized environments. Data center managers have a lot to keep them awake at night. The servers that once could be powered, for say, $4,800 a year are now consuming $28,000 or more in energy a year. Power now represents the single largest component of operating cost. Yet, rarely is energy as closely managed as it should be. Many data center managers don’t know the efficiency of their IT equipment or the site infrastructure, nor do they have a clear path in mind for maintaining and improving that efficiency. There’s a lot of low-hanging fruit being overlooked—readily available opportunities to substantially reduce energy costs and become “greener” in the process. With the right power monitoring system, such as with The EDGE, your organization can protect data and applications while optimizing the power delivery infrastructure for efficiency and lower cost. New supervisory, connectivity and protection capabilities provide an envelope of protection for your entire power infrastructure.

AES Power Monitors, like The EDGE, offer options for organizations of any size. You can remotely monitor and manage a single uninterruptible power system (UPS), an enterprise-wide network of many UPSs and power distribution devices, or a complete IT support infrastructure, including generators, environmental systems and detection devices, and other components from multiple vendors.
