New Web-Mon Enterprise Edition Provides Remote Meter Dashboards over TCP/IP LAN/WAN Networks
E-Mon, the electric submetering market leader and manufacturer of the widely installed E-Mon D-Mon product line, today announced the availability of the Web-Mon Enterprise Edition, an Internet-enabled energy monitoring platform that provides real-time and historical energy data via any standard Web browser. Ideal for campus and multi-building facility applications, Web-Mon Enterprise directly communicates over the facility’s existing IP backbone with remote Class 3000 and 5000 E-Mon D-Mon meters and up to three connected pulse-output utility meters per Web-Mon Enterprise device. Typical applications include schools and universities, medical complexes, business parks, military bases and other multi-building commercial, industrial and institutional users.Ideal for campus or multi-building facilities, Web-Mon Enterprise Edition provides meter dashboards of historical and real-time energy use via any standard web browser over Modbus TCP/IP-based LAN/WAN networks; complements Web-Mon standard edition for single-building apps
Like the Web-Mon standard edition introduced in 2009, Web-Mon Enterprise provides a user-friendly web interface that allows live energy data, charts and graphs to be viewed via any standard Internet browser—without add-on software or extra programming to provide a “dashboard” display of kWh, kW, power factor and other advanced functions from up to 24 meter inputs.
“Web-Mon Enterprise Edition takes one-click energy management to the next level by automatically integrating the user’s distributed metering infrastructure into real-time meter dashboards via any TCP/IP local or wide area network,” said Don Millstein, president and CEO of E-Mon. “Web-Mon Enterprise complements our standard Web-Mon offering, typically used in single-building scenarios, with open-architecture Modbus IP-compatible device connectivity for virtually any multi-facility energy monitoring and management networking requirement, including presentment of electricity, gas, water, and other metered parameters.”
Web-Mon affords multiple users access to key energy data and usage patterns critical in today’s energy intensive environments. The ability to view usage on demand either on-site or remotely allows energy managers and others to easily stay on top of energy conservation programs, green building initiatives or overall efficiency analysis. Whether the need is for one-page dashboards, energy profiles or raw interval data, E-Mon’s Web-Mon solutions are the answer.
