Smart X is a new generation power meter that allows to identify a building's consumption by end use.

The solution can be installed by any electrician in less than 1 hour with no power interruption. Thanks to cutting edge algorithms, the Smart X identifies the power consumption of each type of equipment installed in the building. This can range from IT to ventilation to heating. These algorithms have been developed after nine years of intensive R&D. They recognize the specific signature (on high frequency measurements) of each type of equipment that consumes on an electrical network. Given the clear vision you get thanks to the Smart X, you can target and monitor energy savings over time. As a result, building managers can better understand their energy consumption.
