Equipment Efficiency

Power monitoring can be combined with industrial sensors to determine machinery efficiency in many different use cases.

For example, in the case of a water pumping station Samsara's Power Meters and Input Modules can be used to simultaneously monitor both the power usage of a pump, and the output of a flow meter connected to the pump.  The resulting graphs of kW used by the pump, and gallons per minute of water flow could be used to calculate efficiency, or compare to the manufacturers stated efficiency to determine if pumps are performing as advertised, or require maintenance.
