By scheduling charging to avoid costly spikes in electricity demands and ensuring the correct rotation of batteries, PowerNet, the new software system from EnerSys, provides control and significant savings in lead acid
Management reports can be accessed remotely via a LAN or internet connection.
PowerNet software runs on a standard PC and automatically switches chargers on and off at the best time to maintain electricity consumption within desired para- meters. Spikes in electricity use can be costly so different power thresholds, set for certain times, take advantage of off-peak electricity rates and reduce consumption during peak rate.
PowerNet is compatible with up to 10 battery families and 500+ chargers.
