Power monitoring helps brightsolid measure power usage
brightsolid specialises in the cloud delivery of business critical applications, helping companies increase agility and reduce the risk of their IT solutions. They contacted DCR to install a power monitoring system.
brightsolid had a requirement for a power monitoring system, which arose when they took on a new client and their contract costs centred on the power used over a defined period of time, and more importantly, if the energy used was over a certain limit within that time.
The Client had no reliable power monitoring system in place so they contacted DCR to help them find a solution.
DCR met with brightsolid to identify their needs and requirements. From there, DCR installed a power monitoring unit to monitor 125 individual power sources.
Each cable that supplies equipment to be monitored is now clamped with a sensor, which feeds back to a data collection module, producing various graphs and usage reports that can be tailored to customer requirement.
Because of the installation of the recommended system, brightsolid were able to deliver a robust contract for the client, based on meaningful and trustworthy data.
