Power Failure Monitoring

Monitoring for power failure supporting critical machines or appliances can be accomplished wirelessly and integrated into a building automation or management system. This can be especially important for GFCI outlets that can trip off for various reasons. Powercast’s contact closure (digital input) sensor has two input ports for monitoring external contacts. When coupled with a power alert dry contact, the status can be relayed to a wireless gateway and provided to a BAS/BMS to log the outage and send alerts.
