This latest IoT energy management platform from Verdigris was designed to be the “most-scalable connected sensor for complex enterprise facilities” the company says.
Each Einstein sensor wirelessly streams “millions of samples per second” from a facility’s electrical panel to the cloud, Verdigris states. It then analyzes these electrical “fingerprints” to automatically optimize building controls, predict future breakdowns and send users critical notifications about energy use.
Verdigris’ AI software and smart sensors aggregate energy consumption and prediction data into instantaneous mobile apps and web dashboards. Weekly reporting emails offer insight into energy statistics and measure progress against customer goals.
Einstein is Verdigris’ 5th generation hardware and includes built-in, native 4G-LTE connectivity. The company says this sensor can now instantly deploy an always-on secure network for real time remote diagnosis of equipment faults and other energy signature anomalies.
