It connects directly to meters on a network, through industrial controllers, and accepts manual entry. The application is layered on top of the Wonderware System Platform, enabling integration with a wide range of applications, networks and I/O data sources. Application functionality includes recording consumption and demand at main and sub-meters for a wide range of energy types, including power, water, chill, gas, air, and steam. The application also associates production output to energy usage, providing the key performance indicators used in many sustainability programs. It can be quickly installed in a matter of days, and pre-built reports give managers, supervisors and workers new visibility and information on how energy is used within the operation.

Invensys Operations Management’s offerings are delivered under several prominent industry brands, including Action Instruments, ArchestrA, Avantis, Barber-Colman, Chessell, Continental, Eurotherm, Foxboro, IMServ, InFusion, SimSci-Esscor, Triconex and Wonderware.
