Synapse Wireless, Inc., a member of the McWane family, recently expanded its SimplySnap holistic energy management platform with Energy Insights. Energy Insights is a component in the popular SimplySnap platform frequently used in the industrial and manufacturing market segments.
Facility managers in charge of proposing and managing energy savings projects can use Energy Insights capabilities within the turnkey SimplySnap Energy Management platform to monitor and
take corrective action plans to optimize energy usage and lower operational costs. Expanding the SimplySnap platform with Energy Insights provides facility teams with the systems and analytics
required to execute and monitor sustainability initiatives across departments, facilities, divisions, and the overall enterprise. The expanded solution focuses on profitability through sustainability supporting organizational ESG initiatives through facility performance and resource productivity optimization.
Energy Insights delivers on sustainability goals across the enterprise through submetering utilities at the facility and rolling that data up to the consumer. Reports from Energy Insights summarize
department and equipment level energy usage details to ensure alignment on energy reduction goals. The central point of data provides a common view and knowledge to target energy savings
and reduce overall costs across the enterprise.
Built into SimplySnap, Energy Insight’s energy cost algorithm determines each facility’s utility rate structure to convert power consumed into dollars spent. It considers complex structures that have different rates depending on the month and time of day. It also considers the cost of peak demand in a given period. This detailed consumption and cost information enables the facility manager to make more informed decisions about energy savings opportunities across a facility.
The company’s approach to energy management can pinpoint savings opportunities so that a team can act to lower energy costs in a verifiable manner for the entire factory. The comprehensive
energy management platform provides the ability to monitor critical equipment and processes in the facility, giving managers the insight and the tools to understand consumption and cost to save
The Synapse energy management platform works with new and existing equipment with minimal integration overhead. The holistic solution includes a combination of the Sense 4-20 wireless sensor
hardware used in conjunction with current transducers to measure the energy flow of mains, subpanels, and heavy equipment. The data is sent wirelessly over the patented Synapse mesh network to the Central Base Station and uploaded to the cloud service for analysis and cost calculations. All the energy data is viewable in the SimplySnap user interface from any mobile device or computer web browser. With configurable views, users can select specific timeframes, equipment, or departments to research and compare performance data across the facility.
