PowerMonitors help companies control and reduce energy consumption

Improve energy consumption tracking

The Allen-Bradley PowerMonitors provide insight into how, when and where energy is being used

Two new Allen-Bradley power monitors from Rockwell Automation provide manufacturers with insight into how, when and where energy is being used throughout the production process.

The PowerMonitor W250 power meter offers a self-generating wireless communications platform, ideally suited to applications located in areas where hard-wired networking is cost prohibitive.

The PowerMonitor 500 features a large LCD display to view energy use information directly at the process being monitored without requiring any additional components.

The wireless PowerMonitor W250 measures energy consumption at multiple metering locations, including remote or confined spaces such as ceilings, conveyor belts or outdoors. It transmits energy consumption information directly to Rockwell RSEnergyMetrix software for reduced networking costs and easier data collection. Simplified networking for additional monitors allows for improved system modularity and flexibility.

For smaller consumption and demand-monitoring applications, the PowerMonitor 500 features an on-device LCD display in a small, panel-mounted footprint. Operators can access real-time energy demand and consumption data at the machine or process level to become more engaged in energy-saving initiatives. It also features Modbus TCP and EtherNet/IP communication options and is fully integrated with RSEnergyMetrix software.
