March 6, 2012 - Pittsburgh … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced the release of Power Xpert® Reporting version 3.0, which helps customers make sense of exhaustive power monitoring data and identify vital statistics to improve the efficiency and reliability of facilities. Power Xpert Reporting is powerful software engineered for energy, health care, information technology and facility managers to track and compare systems within facilities and across the enterprise. New standard and custom reports help customers take advantage of government incentives, avoid penalties and reduce their carbon footprint.
“Drawing on our global strength in power management, Eaton provides industry-leading technologies and solutions to help customers identify cost reduction opportunities, set goals for improvement and track energy consumption savings,” said Marcus Maxwell, Eaton product manager. “Out-of-the-box, Power Xpert Reporting allows customers to see a clear representation of their power and energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, power quality and more, all in a crisp graphic format.”
Power Xpert Reporting now provides 13 ready-to-go report templates with intuitive graphics and charts to help customers understand and manage critical power systems and energy flow as a whole. The newest version of Power Xpert Reporting adds standard baseline and dashboard report templates, along with custom reporting capabilities. Additionally, Power Xpert Reporting is tested and configured to use with VMware® high-availability clusters for critical systems.
New baseline comparison reports measure actual power consumption over time against a baseline. The report helps verify that buildings’ energy systems are installed, calibrated and perform as planned. Additionally, data is normalized for facility size, location, weather and other environmental variables. These baseline reports support LEED certification and help customers take advantage of government incentives.
With geographical mapping capabilities, a new dashboard report gives customers a bird’s eye view of Power Xpert software and Foreseer® installations around the globe. Using Microsoft® Bing Maps, each building site’s current alarms and status is indicated on a map.
Further, customers now have the flexibility to create custom reports with user-selectable or virtual attributes and complex formulas for custom data. New custom reports allow users to create virtual devices to calculate data input based on existing real-world devices – reducing equipment costs, while providing power monitoring capabilities.
Power Xpert Reporting version 3.0 supports failover VMware high availability clustering infrastructure. In the event a system is damaged or maintenance work performed, Power Xpert Reporting used with VMware clustering can access historical data, facilitating key business operations.
Power Xpert Reporting communicates with multiple Power Xpert Software and Foreseer databases simultaneously. Additionally, a variety of both Eaton and third-party devices are supported for reporting data. Engineered for easy integration and installation, Power Xpert Reporting’s deployment utility is designed to get the system up and running quickly.
