With a modular-based design combined with standard Cat5e cabling, the hardware was able to be completely installed in less than 45 minutes. The first side of the panel took only 15 minutes while the other side was completed in under 10 minutes.
One of the challenges when installing CTs (Current Transducers that measure each circuit’s status) is to ensure that they are mapped to the right breaker and corresponding customer. This is an often difficult and sometimes tedious task that was eliminated with Canara Branch Circuit monitoring’s unique auto-identification feature that performed this accurately in under 5 minutes.
Alan Pearson, Director of Datacentres, EMEA at Virtustream and shown in the picture below on the right, was pleased how easy the entire system was to install, configure and view the system data online in real time.
With a little help from Marcos Almonaci, who is on the left, Alan was able to use Canara Connect to set all the circuit owners and verify our readings using his live PDU outputs (turns out that ours was much more accurate). The product worked first time!
It’s great when a product install goes well and we have happy customers. Alan went on to say “I want to say what a fantastic product this is, I’d like to do all the panels on both my sites as soon as possible please!” He added, “I’m prepared to talk to any prospective customers and show them how much money I’ve saved by putting in Canara’s BCM Solution”.
Liam Bounds the electrician that performed the installation was impressed with the ease of installation and added “I’m going to tell my other customers about this – I can see immediate benefits!”
Thank Liam, we appreciate it.
