Honeywell, Minneapolis, recently announced it has acquired E-Mon LLC, a manufacturer of electric submetering products and systems. The acquisition will enable Honeywell to offer a more complete energy-efficiency portfolio and strengthens its offerings in support of the smart grid.

Submeters enable facility owners to better control and manage energy costs. A submeter measures energy consumption by tenant or department and enables property owners to analyze consumption and usage patterns, helps identify failing equipment and system inefficiencies and can verify facility energy conservation programs—all of which are critical capabilities in a smart grid environment.

E-Mon will be integrated into Honeywell Environmental and Combustion Controls (ECC), which is part of Honeywell’s Automation and Control Solutions business group.
