Power Monitoring Solutions
Rockwell Automation has expanded its Allen Bradley power-quality portfolio to now include the i-Sense monitoring solution and corresponding i-Grid service. These scalable solutions help OEMs and end users identify and mitigate power issues to improve uptime and productivity. The i-Sense voltage monitors read incoming power for the entire facility. This technology provides vital data that pinpoints voltage-based power events, reveals any consequent relationship between voltage sags and downtime situations and helps users get operations running with minimal mean time to repair (MTTR). The subscription-based i-Grid service logs, analyzes and corroborates i-Sense data via an Ethernet or modem connection from in and around facilities to confirm if power-quality issues were the result of a grid event. Service options include detailed technical analysis and executive summaries. The service also can send instant notifications to facility managers that a power event has occurred, enabling them to more quickly diagnose downtime and resume operations.
