We’re pleased to announce the new MT40 smart power controller.
Monitor, Measure, and Control
MT40 is an in-line AC wall-powered smart power controller. It connects upstream of the device it’s monitoring, in-line with its power supply. MT40 allows user to remotely manage power for the connected device, and monitors and measures several power metrics, including:
- Voltage (V)
- Current (A)
- Apparent power (VA)
- Real power (W)
- AC frequency (H)
- Power factor (a measure of energy efficiency as a %)
- Energy (kWh)
MT40 samples data every 15 seconds, and sends data to the dashboard every 20 minutes or immediately upon threshold violation. Like the rest of the MT portfolio, MT40 uses a compatible MR or MV gateway to wireless connect to the dashboard via Bluetooth Low Energy.
Alerting, troubleshooting, and optimizing energy consumption
So what is MT40 used for, you ask? A lot! Most use cases fall into three categories: alerting, remote troubleshooting, and energy optimization and sustainability.
- Alerts can be configured to notify you of anomalous power readings, as irregular power usage can be a sign of improper device configuration or impending device failure. Alerts can also help you identify potential power outages to enable a more efficient response to reduce downtime and impact of lost power
- From the dashboard, you can remotely reboot devices with the power cycle command. This helps eliminate the need to go on site, or having to rely on non-technical employees to locate and reboot a device that needs troubleshooting.
- MT40 helps monitor, evaluate and optimize energy usage across devices by benchmarking energy consumption and measuring the effect of sustainability initiatives to reduce energy. MT40 can also be used to turn off devices when they are not needed to further cut energy use.
