Monnit Launches Low-Cost, Wireless Current Meters for Managing Real-Time Power Consumption

SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Monnit Corporation (www.monnit.com)
today announced new low-cost, wireless AC current meters which serve to
dramatically change how power consumption can be tracked and monitored
remotely.

“The AC Current Meter represents a breakthrough in the ability for
businesses to understand and manage power consumption,” said Brad
Walters, CEO of Monnit Corp. “Building and facility managers can gain
unprecedented insight into a building’s HVAC nervous system anytime,
from anywhere in real-time. There is no other solution on the market
with these capabilities, at this valued price-point.”

Applications for corporate real estate and building management systems
include the ability to precisely provide preventive maintenance on HVAC
systems, machinery and equipment as needed. “When a motor is about to
fail, it takes more power to run. This wireless current meter helps
calculate where and when there is an issue that needs attention,”
Walters added.

Monnit’s new wireless AC current meters measure and track minimum,
maximum and average RMS currents, and amp hours. They are also capable
of returning watt hour or kilowatt hour readings using the iMonnit
online monitoring software. Installation is also quick and safe.
Monnit’s wireless sensors communicate with wireless gateways up to 300
feet (non-line-of-sight) away so no hard-wiring is needed and the
current transducer is installed by simply clamping it around the power
wire with no cutting or splicing required.

This new sensor also enables building managers and owners to demonstrate
compliance with a number of LEED v4 requirements. For instance, the
Minimum Energy Performance credit, which is intended to “reduce the
environmental and economic harms of excessive energy use by achieving a
minimum level of energy efficiency for the building and its systems,”
requires that buildings demonstrate a 5 percent reduction of energy
usage in the proposed performance rating over the base performance
rating, with a minimum of 2 percent of that 5 percent coming from
building power and cooling infrastructure.

Like all Monnit wireless sensors, the AC Current Meters include free
basic iMonnit online sensor monitoring, which allows for customization
of sensor operation and reviewing sensor data from any web enabled
device, such as computers, tablets or smart phones. The system can also
send notifications via text, email or voice call if user defined
conditions are met or exceeded.

Monnit Wireless AC Current Meter Features

– Measures amp hours, max RMS current, min RMS current, and average RMS
current.

– Two different current transducers available:

– Low Current: 0-20 Amp
