Press Release - EDP Europe Appointed As UK Distributor For Packet Power
EDP Europe is pleased to announce its appointment as UK distributor for the Packet Power wireless power and environmental monitoring system. Packet Power provides the easiest, most cost effective way to capture detailed power and temperature information for both single site and large multi-facility operations.
The Packet Power solution is easy to install without the need of electricians or removal of existing equipment. All monitoring devices utilise a self-configuring wireless mesh network to communicate with each other, keeping the need for IP addresses to just one per Ethernet Gateway. The Ethernet Gateway device gathers the data from hundreds of monitoring points and makes it available to existing IT applications via SNMP or transmits it to Packet Power’s EMX software. EMX is available as a cloud-based service for easy deployment or as a local application for complete customer control. Smart Power cables, in a range of styles, incorporate precise power and temperature monitoring into a power cord format. While the Environmental Monitoring node provides up to eleven temperature monitoring points and one humidity or differential pressure point.
Colin Parker, EDP Europe’s Marketing Manager said “We are delighted to have added the Packet Power product line to our portfolio of products that help Data Centre and Facility Managers improve their energy efficiency. The system is very easy to install and the data it provides will help quantify where energy savings can be made. Its scalability allows you to start small and grow over time”.
“We are delighted to welcome EDP Europe as a partner in the United Kingdom,” stated Steve VanTassel, CEO at Packet Power. “The combination of EDP Europe’s extensive data centre knowledge and the Packet Power offering set will help make it easier and more affordable for UK data centres to gain the knowledge they need to improve operational effectiveness and make informed decisions about their energy use.”
