Emerson Electric Company’s (EMR) division Emerson Network Power recently announced the launch of a couple of technologies for its Trellis Platform.
The development of the new technologies, namely the Trellis Power system manager and Trellis Mobile suite application, was driven by the increasing demand for a portable platform that would increase the flexibility for data center managers to manage the power system.
These technologies are expected to provide a complete visualization of the power system along with a real-time and secure mobile access to the system diagnostics. This will enhance the company’s Datacenter Infrastructure Management (:DCIM) functionality by supporting the data center managers to reduce the risks associated with downtime and improving the operational efficiencies.
The Trellis Power System Manager enables the whole power chain to be presented in a one-line diagram. This technology reduces the downtime risks by enabling the managers to track the power system in no-time to access the devices affected with power failure, thereby leading to rapid actions and reduced costs. In addition, this technology also enables the managers to forecast the future energy consumption.
The Trellis Power solution plays a key role in power infrastructure management. The launch of these two new technologies comes at an opportune time as the investment in new power generation is expected to grow in the next 10 years. Further, efficient and effective solutions are the present day requirement of power utilities or electric grids as they have to manage and regulate the accurate amount of electricity required by the place they supply power to.
