CalAmp Corp., a provider of wireless products, services and solutions, has introduced CalAmp Energy Management and Control (EMC), a scalable load-control analytical solution for monitoring and managing demand response for electric utilities' smart grid applications.

CalAmp says the EMC solution provides a single point of access, analysis and management. Utilities can convert existing load-control programs into a single load-control and analytics environment that protects current investment and positions utilities for future growth, the company adds.

Among other features, the EMC solution includes a command-and-control core for creating, testing, executing and fine-tuning a variety of load-management programs; a dashboard analytics solution that unifies relevant information from a broad range of data sources; and the COLT software platform designed specifically for telemetric and telematics applications.

"Our solution can stand alone or be tightly integrated with existing load-control programs and devices to provide a cost-effective, reliable and powerful load-control and analysis solution for better demand forecasting and rapid event response,” says Mike Zachan, general manager of CalAmp's Wireless Networks business.
