Summit Technology releases iPad power monitoring app

Summit Technology, a Walnut Creek, Calif.-based manufacturer of the PowerSight line of power monitors and power quality analyzers, has released the PSM-i (PowerSight Manager software for the iPad) available as a free app download on Apple iTunes. With PSM-i installed on the iPad, the user can set up, operate, display, and analyze data graphically from a WiFi-enabled PowerSight meter that is often inaccessible without taking safety precautions, according to the company.

For example, the NFPA 70E and CSA Z462 standards require the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) when circuits to be accessed present an arc flash hazard. According to Summit, while an iPad equipped with PSM-i does not eliminate the need entirely, it reduces PPE use to a minimum to provide relief to the worker operating under difficult conditions.

The “Wizard Screens” feature on the app provides an intuitive guide to planning and setting up a power study. The user can also view dozens of high-resolution screens that allow real-time access to waveforms and phasor diagrams as well as multi-meter displays of instantaneous power values. An iPad equipped with this app enables the user to record and download monitoring data and then review, store, and e-mail the results.
