Rockwell Automation has added new energy intelligence capabilities in software applications. The new tools include the FactoryTalk VantagePoint Energy bundle, FactoryTalk EnergyMetrix software and Allen-Bradley IntelliCenter Energy software. The tools were designed to help plant and operations managers view resource consumption in relation to specific units, lines and machines so they can make more informed energy decisions.
Energy intelligence is an extension of the manufacturing intelligence capability of turning data into information for informed decision making, by leveraging power and energy equipment as data sources.
Energy-intelligence strategies leveraging FactoryTalk software enable companies to report and visualize their consumption in a way that can reduce the time and effort associated with regulatory compliance, cut operating costs and maximize profit, according to Rockwell Automation.
