Opto 22 and Vancouver-based Pulse Energy have combined their expertise in an effort to provide customers the visibility and data they need to understand their energy usage, pinpoint problems, and reduce costs.

Through their newly formed business partnership, Opto 22 and Pulse Energy have made it easier for commercial and industrial customers to monitor their energy consumption, gather usage data, and use it to reduce their utility bills. Specifically, Opto 22's OptoEMU Sensor energy monitoring appliance couples with the Pulse energy management software to connect to customers' metering devices, electrical panels, machines and equipment, and then deliver comprehensive energy-related data over standard networks and the Web for viewing and analysis.

One of the easiest ways for businesses to cut operational costs is by better managing their energy usage, according to Opto 22. Towards that end, this new partnership merges Opto 22's experience as a provider of monitoring and data acquisition hardware, with Pulse Energy's Web-based Pulse energy management software and its powerful capabilities for measurement and verification, anomaly detection, and benchmarking.

"Pulse makes it easy to monitor, understand, and manage energy use," says Opto 22 Chief Executive Officer Mark Engman. "The software gives engineering and automation teams, energy managers, and other decision makers the monitoring tools they need to quickly and easily understand, and effectively manage their facilities."
