Manufacturing

We help manufacturing plants better monitor and control energy costs through an industrial power management system.

Factories and other industrial facilities use a lot of energy. Often there are no systems in place to monitor and control energy usage, which leads to company-wide inefficiency. And when premium fees are charged by local electricity providers, operational costs can spike.

Industrial power management system at Charlotte Pipe and Foundry

We understand these and other challenges faced by our customers in the manufacturing industry. That’s why we design a unique industrial power management system that provides our customers with the information needed to efficiently manage electricity consumption.

Affinity Energy develops many electrical power management systems (EPMS) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems for manufacturing customers. Our expertise includes substation automation, power quality monitoring, load management, and submetering. Our engineers can also customize programmable logic controllers (PLCs) to execute your most important electrical control sequences, designed for high availability in extreme plant environments. Because we’re an open systems integrator, we provide best-of-breed components, software, and equipment at various price points.
