Mission-Critical Power Solutions For EdTech / Education Technology

EdTech or Education Technology continues to evolve in K-12 school systems and higher education at university campuses.  PDI’s ultra-efficient and smart power solutions enables public and private school systems become stewards of the funding they receive in operating their facilities.

Energy costs are the 2nd largest operations budget line-item behind labor primarily because aging campuses are littered with highly inefficient distribution transformers.  It’s not uncommon for 30-50-year-old distribution transformers powering school buildings.  ONYX Power, a PDI Brand, engineers and manufacturers ultra-efficient DOE2016 distribution transformers in a wide variety of sizes and footprints that can replace this aging equipment.

Centralized granular power usage is a trend many school systems have invested in to understand how and where power is being used.  Like any data point to manage you must first monitor.  PDI’s flexible and modular JCOMM BCMS (Branch Circuit Monitoring Solution) can be deployed to monitor power usage within 1% accuracy and communicated back to a centralized building management system via numerous standard protocols.  This data can then be leverage to improve facilities and reduce operational costs.
