Building automation specialist Leviton has launched an edge data acquisition server to collect energy data from meters and environmental sensors. The server can use a range of inputs, including Modbus RTU/TCP protocols, and designed to connect to IP-based applications such as enterprise energy management, demand response and smart grid programmes. The EMHXD can connect users to thousands of energy points, benchmark energy usage and reduce energy costs.

The EMHXD can be employed for tenant billing, accessing energy information from local or remote sites, benchmarking building energy usage, and viewing “real-time” performance data. The server allows for more accurate energy use tracking and peak demand for demand response programmes, performance monitoring of critical systems, such as lighting, HVAC, PDUs and inverters, and alarm notification setting for data points above or below target levels.

“With a faster processor, more memory and data storage, and an improved user interface for data collection, the EMHXD delivers an expanded capacity and flexibility to address a broad range of energy management applications,” said Tom Leonard, vice president of controls at Leviton. “This makes it ideal for tenant billing in residential MDUs, code compliance in commercial and industrial applications and renewable energy applications.”
