Opto 22's OptoEMU Sensor gathers energy consumption data from electrical panels and metering devices
Opto 22's OptoEMU Sensor is designed to help small- to medium-sized commercial and industrial customers gather energy consumption data from their facilities' electrical panels, metering devices and other equipment. The OptoEMU Sensor also provides communication interfaces and data integration capabilities to deliver the acquired energy data to enterprise business systems. The OptoEMU system is comprised of two hardware components — the OptoEMU Sensor and the OptoEMU Server.
The sensor provides three types of monitoring interfaces. First, it is engineered to directly connect to and measure the electrical loads of both individual power panels and subpanels, and key facility equipment. The OptoEMU Sensor has serial and Ethernet interfaces, and can monitor and communicate via the Modbus and BACnet protocols. Finally, the sensor can monitor and accept pulses from utility meters and other sub-metering devices. The sensor can then send all acquired building data to online energy monitoring software portals, or to local databases for integration with business systems.
