Lowering utility bills from peak demand usage, reducing energy consumption from equipment throughout an industrial facility, and creating a sustainable future good for the bottom line and the environment are all of paramount importance to everyone in manufacturing and processing today. But most industrial companies lack the energy monitoring capabilities and necessary data to develop an effective energy savings strategy and plan.

Mitsubishi Electric Automation’s EnergyPAQ is the ideal energy monitoring and control solution for measuring and displaying energy usage, the company said. It helps companies determine and understand where and how much energy is being consumed in factories and plants. Once problem areas are identified within a facility, the company can then implement viable energy savings plans with the EnergyPAQ to optimize and reduce consumption. EnergyPAQ can be simply connected and wired to “every and any” piece of equipment or machinery with three-phase power, and can be used to monitor and collect usage data from all energy types: electricity, water, gas, coal, fuel, compressed air, and steam.

Engineered at Mitsubishi Electric’s North American factory automation headquarters, EnergyPAQ is an all-in-one solution, prewired and ready to go. Users only need to connect voltage and current transformers to the circuits they want to monitor. Essentially, EnergyPAQ is ready to start monitoring energy right out of the box. It houses Mitsubishi Electric Automation’s Q-Series rack-based PLC system, making it a scalable solution that offers special options, including the ability to log data locally or to a remote database. With the option to SmartGrid connectivity, customers can manage electrical demand more efficiently. Standard Web-based dashboards are also available.
