The Signature System is the most advanced power quality monitoring system available on the market today. Able to capture critical events that typically are missed by other systems, it is completely web-based. Instead of proprietary software that must be installed and updated on a PC, users only need a standard web browser to access, view and analyze data. By logging onto a secure website, multiple users can simultaneously view data in real time and from any location. This shared-access feature allows users in various locations to collaborate more effectively in making quick decisions on key power quality and energy management issues. The affordable Signature System is simple to learn, deploy and use, delivering immediate value to both users and managers.

The Signature System is a multi-tiered power quality analysis and energy management system. It is comprised of an integrated system of DataNodes, which are measurement and monitoring instruments, InfoNodes, the web-server and data analysis tool, and where needed, enterprise software.

Key to the Signature System are AnswerModules, a series of intelligent algorithms that convert raw event signature data into precise answers for rapid and accurate decision making. The Signature System is the only power monitoring system to offer AnswerModules, which help users prevent and mitigate equipment and process failure by pinpointing the location and root cause of power disturbances.
