Leviton announced the new VerifEye™ EMHXD, an intelligent, flexible data acquisition server (DAS) that collects energy data from meters and environmental sensors through flexible inputs and Modbus RTU/TCP protocols. Designed to connect to IP-based applications such as enterprise energy management, demand response, and smart grid programs, the EMHXD allows users to connect thousands of energy points, benchmark energy usage, and reduce energy costs.
“With a faster processor, more memory and data storage, and an improved user interface for data collection, the EMHXD delivers an expanded capacity and flexibility to address a broad range of energy management applications,” said Tom Leonard, vice president of controls at Leviton. “This makes it ideal for tenant billing in residential MDUs, code compliance in commercial and industrial applications and renewable energy applications.”
The EMXHD collects data from connected (wired or wireless) devices based on user-selected intervals. Compatible with virtually all front-end software and reporting tools, users can easily access the data through any web browser. No software is required.
The EMHXD can be leveraged for tenant billing, accessing energy information from local or remote sites, benchmarking building energy usage, and viewing “real-time” performance data. Additionally, the EMHXD allows the user to more accurately track energy use and peak demand for demand response programs, monitor the performance of critical systems, such as lighting, HVAC, PDUs and inverters,, and set alarm notifications for data points above or below target levels.
Dual Modbus (RS485) ports also double the capacity for Modbus devices, and dual Ethernet (LAN) ports provide enhanced security and easy commissioning.
