KJT Introduces System For Power Quality Monitoring
Solo from Kreiss Johnson Technologies (KJT) is an internet system for single point and portable power quality monitoring.
Solo transforms power quality monitoring data into internet accessible answers, giving small to mid-size industrial and commercial companies information on energy use, cost and power quality.
After detecting a power quality event, Solo completes an artificial intelligence based analysis to determine the severity of the disturbance, its source, affected equipment and a recommended solution.
Web based interactive charts enable engineers to analyze and identify energy wastes and reduce usage during peak demand periods.
