Making Technology Work
EDI’s team of automation specialists works closely with you to understand your specific applications in order to create an effective solution. In addition, EDI has alliances with specialty subcontractors who work with us on specific assignments requiring highly sophisticated programming or equipment assembly.
Power Monitoring Systems That Work
As energy costs have soared, EDI customers are focusing more than ever on energy management in order to drive down operating costs without impacting process integrity or product/service quality. In response, EDI’s automation specialists are providing assistance in implementing or enhancing power monitoring systems that control demand loads and readjust usage patterns to achieve greater energy efficiency and lower costs.
Today, power monitoring systems allow you to identify, monitor and control power loads in real-time, down to a single machine process or building system. And, through integration with various process controls, these systems enable you to pinpoint specific locations of inefficientpower use or potential mechanical problems.
Drawing upon the expertise of some of the most respected manufacturers in the business as well as their own experience, our specialists can develop integrated communication links between components, allowing real-time information to be compiled and distributed to any operating department or accounting reporting system. We can also configure power monitoring software to read circuit monitors, facilitate logging and harmonic analysis and drive a variety of custom applications designed to control energy consumption. Once the hardware and software are installed, we stay with you through the critical start-up to ensure that the systems work as well in the field as they do on paper.
