RICHMOND, Va., May 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Power Distribution, Inc. (PDI), a leading supplier of power distribution and monitoring solutions for data centers, today announced that WaveStar® Infinity received the Top Product of the Year honor in the Environmental Leader and Energy Manager Today Product & Project Awards. The power monitoring solution took the top spot for its intuitive user interface and full-functioning remote access that renders real-time sensing and performance metrics to mobile devices and desktops.

The Environmental Leader and Energy Manager Today Product & Project Awards is a program recognizing excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits, or in projects implemented by companies that improved environmental or energy management. This year’s independent judging panel chose PDI’s WaveStar Infinity for its impactful innovation for data center power monitoring as well as their ongoing improvements to simplify the complex task of facility energy management.

According to one of this year’s judges the WaveStar Infinity’s, “improved data accuracy and response allows sub-feed metering, tenant billing and improved energy management. The ability to monitor and alarm seems similar to fire alarm system technology and will allow for easier integration at companies that already have similar monitoring systems for other services.”

“Having instant access to power data on any device, allows facility managers to continually monitor data center operations and achieve those elusive sustainability goals while reducing operational expenses,” said Michael Condon, Director, Engineering (Software & Monitoring Solutions), PDI. “We are honored Energy Manager Today has validated our offering with this prestigious award and pledge to keep evolving our products to ease the tedious process of data center power management.”

WaveStar Infinity boasts two unique features that contribute to operational efficiency. These are its color touchscreen display and its ability to do Native Set-up.

  • Display: WaveStar Infinity has an industry-leading Home Screen showing summary Alarm Notification status, a button to get to Set-up and Configuration, and a one-line diagram of the equipment being monitored, i.e. the electrical distribution configuration. Users can simply touch the logo for a piece of equipment, to zoom in on the readings of what is being monitored. 
  • Local and Remote Access: users have full-function remote access to the interactive home screen, configuration settings, user management, etc. Users can access the monitor via any standard browser from any device.

"With a highly respected (and critical) judging panel and a strict set of judging criteria, entrants faced an extremely high bar for the level of product or project to qualify for an award," says Tim Hermes, publisher of Environmental Leader parent company, Business Sector Media. "Those who entered needed to bring their A-game to get even a sniff of award-nirvana. And they delivered."
