The Leviton EMHXD Data Acquisition Server (DAS)

Data acquisition server collects info for energy management, smart grid

Sept. 23, 2022
Leviton has now introduced the intelligent, flexible EMHXD Data Acquisition Server (DAS) unit for its VerifEye submetering solutions product line.

Leviton this week introduced its VerifEye EMHXD platform, an intelligent, flexible data acquisition server (DAS) unit that collects energy data from meters and environmental sensors through flexible inputs and use of Modbus RTU/TCP protocols.

Designed to connect to IP-based applications such as enterprise energy management, demand response, and smart grid programs, Leviton says the EMHXD allows users "to connect thousands of energy points, benchmark energy usage, and reduce energy costs."

"With a faster processor, more memory and data storage, and an improved user interface for data collection, the EMHXD delivers an expanded capacity and flexibility to address a broad range of energy management applications," explained Tom Leonard, vice president of controls at Leviton. "This makes it ideal for tenant billing in residential MDUs, code compliance in commercial and industrial applications and renewable energy applications."

The EMXHD collects data from connected (wired or wireless) devices based on user-selected intervals. Compatible with virtually all front-end software and reporting tools, users can easily access the data through any web browser. No software is required.

Leviton notes that the EMHXD unit can be leveraged for tenant billing, accessing energy information from local or remote sites, benchmarking building energy usage, and viewing real-time performance data.

Additionally, the EMHXD allows the user to more accurately track energy use and peak demand for demand response programs, monitor the performance of critical systems, such as lighting, HVAC, PDUs and inverters, and set alarm notifications for data points above or below target levels.

The unit's dual Modbus (RS485) ports also double its capacity for Modbus devices, and dual Ethernet (LAN) ports provide enhanced security and easy commissioning.
