Connectivity – Fundamentals

This #Eatontechtalk will walk through the basics around connectivity of energy monitoring solutions to provide the fundamentals you will need for your next project.  We install meters, relays, circuit breakers and more that have communication capabilities and eventually, if not immediately, we will want to bring them back to some controller, computer, or other system.

This session will break down the system to help you understand some of the key areas you’ll need to think about when achieving your goals and objectives.

 

Energy Monitoring Meter Selection and Accuracy

Energy monitoring meter selection and accuracy is the focus of this #EatonTechTalk.  This session will continue our Energy Month focus with a discussion on meter accuracy.  This session will focus on meeting the expectations of the application.  There are a lot of things to consider including the capabilities of the meter, current transformers, and much more.  We will talk about functionality and features of metering equipment as well as their accuracy with an eye of all aspects of the installation that could impact the accuracy of the data.

You will need to understand the goals and objectives of the installation and pay attention to details during the selection of all components to meet those goals and objectives.

Energy Codes

The self declared June Energy Month continues with a discussion on energy codes.

This session will entertain a discussion with Mr. Mike Stone,  NEMA’s West Coast Field Representative, who is heavily involved on energy codes bringing a wealth of knowledge and leadership to the industry in this regard.  Mr. Stone is with NEMA as a field representative and is a leader I am privileged to call my friend.  the NEMA field representative program brings some of the best kept secret resources to the industry.  There are four representatives working hard to increase safety across the country.

You will not want to miss this event and opportunity to get to know Mr. Stone and the NEMA field rep program which includes 3 other individuals working hard for safety across the country.

 

Energy Management

Welcome to Energy Month!!!

This @EatonTechTalk will kick off June as an energy month of educational content.  In today’s session we will set the stage with a review of energy management in industrial, commercial, and residential applications.  

This session will build a foundation for the month-long educational content we will deliver on this channel.  We will review some general terminology often used and talk about strategies to consider as you approach an energy management focus for your organization.
