Energy monitoring company launches ready-to-install product, upgrades technology

August 23, 2012  


NEW ALBANY, Ind. - Facility managers, operation managers and chief financial officers who want to monitor energy usage at multiple locations from remote computers or need out-of-the-box utility management products could benefit from newly upgraded software and a new product from an Indiana-based company.

EnterScape™, an industrial utility monitoring firm, has upgraded its UtilityRecon® software platform and launched its RTI Kit product globally. The company is based in the Purdue Research Park of Southeast Indiana.

Hershel "Ed" Fancher, president of EnterScape, said UtilityRecon 2.0 places the previous version's functionality on the Web.

"Our customers now can access data from any computer connected to the Internet," he said. "They will no longer need to maintain or install any software."

Fancher said UtilityRecon 2.0 also supports an organization's efforts to attain ISO 50001 certification. This voluntary international standard from the International Organization for Standardization shows that a business has a commitment to energy management and environmentally sustainable business practices.

"We have provided an integrated project management tool in UtilityRecon 2.0 to help customers track energy management initiatives and achieve the ISO 50001 certification," he said. "They also can build unlimited dashboards that show data ranging from energy consumption and production data to environmental conditions like temperature and humidity. The facility maps we provide incorporate photos of equipment so customers can view where the data collection occurs."

EnterScape's RTI Kit is a fully customized industrial monitoring product designed by the company's engineers based on a customer's needs.

"Our engineers work with the customer to determine monitoring needs, and then design a kit to meet those needs," Fancher said. "Our experts put the right pieces together, program them and create a customized manual for the installation."

The kits include monitoring devices, facility drawings and a full-color coded manual that instructs a maintenance technician, plumber or electrician where each device should be placed in the building.

Fancher explained how EnterScape's RTI kits differ from other out-of-the-box management products on the market.

"Other products do not offer the level of customization and expertise that we have when it comes to handling large, complex industrial monitoring needs," he said. "Since our monitoring platform is customized and scalable, we can work with any company that is interested in energy management and production efficiency."
