What we do for Industrial / Manufacturing


If you are in Industrial or Manufacturing there is information you want.

How is my power quality? How much down time do I have? What is my cost per unit? How much revenue is bleeding from my bottom line? Where can we save?
We can help you.

Insuring Power Quality and Energy Reliability for Factories

  • Monitor Power Quality in All Parts of a Factory
  • Respond to PQ Problems Before Outages Occur
  • View Voltage Events and Current Faults
  • Avoid Downtime and Lost Revenue
  • Use SCADA to Manage Energy Usage in the Factory
  • Analyze Factory and Process Energy Consumption Enterprise-wide
  • Determine Inefficiencies and Lower Energy Costs

Monitor Power Quality in All Parts of the Factory

Good power quality is essential to the smooth running of any factory. Power quality problems can result in damage to equipment, downtime, and lost productivity and revenue. EIG’s advanced and highly accurate meters and submeters let you monitor power quality for specific loads or parts of the factory. EIG meters let you set alarms for multiple conditions – drops in voltage, current faults, change in phase angles, change in I/O state, flicker, etc.; and to send emails on alarm to multiple users. You can also monitor in-rush current for large pieces of equipment to be proactive in equipment repair or replacement to avoid downtime. In addition, non-linear loads in factories cause harmonics, inter-harmonics and flicker, all of which can have a detrimental effect on power quality. EIG’s meters and submeters let you view and analyze all of these power quality components and provide detailed reports showing if power quality is within normative standards.

Respond to PQ Problems Before Outages Occur

Reliability of the power running your factory is essential. Factory downtime = lost revenue. By giving you access to PQ information at the point a problem occurs, EIG meters let you be proactive in fixing problems, avoiding downtime and the lost revenue it causes. And EIG’s meters have generous amounts of memory for logging measurements and recording waveforms, which lets you perform detailed forensic analysis of any electrical anomaly problems that occur. EIG tools allow you to study what went wrong in order to prevent it the next time.

Use SCADA to Monitor Energy Usage and Flow throughout the Factory

EIG’s HMI EXTTM software application lets you set up EIG meters in a SCADA system that works with your entire factory. With this flexible and powerful application you can manage energy usage, monitor power quality, and respond to power quality problems factory-wide from any local or remote computer in your system. HMI EXTTM software lets you set up a graphical interface for your meters and other equipment used on the factory floor and in your other buildings, such as administrative office space and warehouses.

Analyze Factory/Process Energy Usage – Find Inefficiencies and Reduce Costs

EIG meters have extensive memory for trending. The EnergyReporter EXT software application uses the historical log data to produce detailed reports of energy and other commodity usage. And you can use the software’s Dashboard Viewer to compare usage in different areas of the factory, for specific loads, or for different timeframes, to find areas where efficiency can be improved, thereby saving energy and lowering costs.

Helping Factories’ Energy Usage Become More Reliable and Cost-Effective

According to the U.S Department of Energy (DOE), factories and industrial plants account for a third of U.S. energy use, costing roughly $200 billion annually. The DOE believes that the industrial sector can save more than 20% of that energy – and the money spent to purchase it – by reducing energy waste. When you use EIG meters to track your energy use and monitor power quality, you gain knowledge about, and increase the efficiency of, your energy usage. More efficient use basically means that the energy you buy performs more work, so you do not need to pay for energy you are not using. This results in lower cost, as well as a better impact on the environment.

To stay competitive in a global marketplace, factory owners must manage costs and increase productivity. Implementing an energy tracking and PQ analysis system accomplishes both these goals. Using EIG meters and submeters to analyze your factory’s energy usage lets you identify areas where usage and resulting costs can be cut. And insuring the reliability of the power you purchase, through PQ monitoring, lets you use your energy budget to produce your products most efficiently.
