BEND, Ore. - DENT Instruments, a leader in the design and manufacture of power and energy measurement instruments, has announced a partnership with building management control systems solutions provider AMX® of Richardson, Texas. The strategic alliance will allow AMX to integrate DENT’s energy submetering technology into AMX’s networked, interactive control systems for building automation, audiovisual devices, and indoor environmental quality.

DENT Instruments’ PowerScout™ power meters will enable AMX’s platform to provide accurate and timely energy consumption reporting on whole building and branch circuits. “Intelligent building automation is realized by having all components interacting based on rules set for energy consumption, scheduled occupancy, ambient light, security, and fire alarms,” said Doug Hall, AMX product manager. “Our collaboration with DENT enables building managers to automate and track resources in every room and reduce their carbon footprint.”

More and more, building managers, owners, and architects are facing requirements to construct smarter, greener facilities that promote resource efficiency and safer, healthier environments, said the companies. With the addition of DENT Instruments’ energy measurement technology, AMX’s intelligent building management solutions will let users meet these initiatives while simplifying and automating the process.

“DENT and AMX are driven to deliver building management solutions that emphasize energy efficiency and resource conservation,” stated Christopher Dent, DENT Instruments’ president and CEO. “We believe the combination of our solution with the AMX platform will deliver a more advanced level of green building efficiencies by allowing users more concise, detailed reporting of their energy usage - enabling them to distinguish systems and areas of heavy consumption and take action.”
