Thomson-RCA needed a way to track and identify energy use of the various systems and equipment within its buildings. To get this data, Thomson-RCA implemented an AutoPilot Energy Information System comprising Opto 22 hardware and software, and designed by Holmes Energy.

Using analog and digital interfaces that connected Opto 22 I/O processors to field devices, the Autopilot System was able to monitor 108 different I/O points on gas and electric meters, chillers, cooling towers, boilers, and other equipment. The AutoPilot System also monitored the facility’s compressed air system and tracked the electrical demand and power consumption of two 500-horsepower Centac compressors and one 350-horsepower Worthington compressor.
