Power Monitoring Expert (PME) Operation

Length: 4 Days


This 4-day overview course focuses on the what, how and why to use an EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert system. Students will be exposed to power monitoring fundamentals in order to set a baseline for class. Students will practice using PowerLogic and ION meter front panels to verify the configuration of devices that already exist in the system. In a hands-on lab environment, students will use the web applications offered in PME as they are featured in this class as the extraction and analysis of data is paramount. Students will learn how to quickly extract and analyze data from their system using tools like the new Incident Alarm Viewer, Trends, Dashboards, Diagrams and Reporter. Utilize the web User Manager tool to add local users to PME. The course then moves on with an overview of one of the engineering clients, Management Console, to ensure the attendees understand how to add as well as remove devices from the PME system. The course concludes with a round-robin session to ensure that students "take away" one tangible item they will do when they get back to their location and their PME system.
