Murata Energy Solutions Americas has built on the decades of Murata experience in providing high-quality wireless products and combined them with Murata’s cloud-based Energy IoT platform to deliver a high-quality, cost-effective, facility electrical and building systems monitoring and control solution. With the ability to aggregate information from geographically dispersed facilities into a single portal, the PowerConnect platform provides at-a-glance information on the health and operation of your electrical systems, including generators and automatic transfer switches, and fingertip control of load management and demand response.
The PowerConnect solution works with virtually any building management system from any vendor, any ATS, and any manufacturer’s generators. PowerConnect seamlessly integrates multi-vendor facilities into a single system displayed in a single portal. Reliable wireless technologies tremendously reduce the cost to install the solution while cellular gateways allow data and commands to be transmitted and received over cellular networks. All PowerConnect components have full industrial temperature ranges, allowing them to be installed outdoors when required.
Automated Demand Response – Completely automate your Demand Response curtailment or maintain control and “push the button” yourself from wherever there is Internet connectivity. With the ability to opt out any device in your system, you have complete flexibility in tailoring your response to DR events.
Economic Load Management – Whether or not you are participating in a DR program, the Murata PowerConnect Load Management module offers a simple, one-button way to implement reduced electrical power consumption modes for your facilities.
