Brief Description

Description :

The Energy Management System (EMS) acquires data from different feeders of a sub-station of the plant and logs the information and generates reports. This information can be used for taking action by generating control signals leading to improvement in energy efficiency. The system is a low-cost solution for small applications limited to 32 nodes per network (physical/electrical nodes based on Modbus) to a maximum of 256 nodes.
