Founded in 1990, by Bill Brayden, Brayden Automation Corp (Brayden) focuses on its demand control product line, continuing to build on the product line started in 1978.
In 1998, the company acquired the powerline carrier technology Southwood Electronics of Indianapolis, Indiana. Brayden repackaged the technology to be used with the Energy Sentry demand control systems and as a stand-alone system for general purpose control applications. Brayden continues to market these products under the WireLynx trademark. WireLynx systems use technology that communicate over existing wires within a building and is particularly important for commercial and industrial applications, where the ability to run wires is not always possible or economical. These products help with peak demand management.
In 2001, Brayden expanded its reach into the electric power distribution industry, specifically electric metering by acquiring Solid State Instruments, Inc. (SSI) of Denver, Colorado. With this expansion, Brayden now offered the most reliable pulse isolation products in the industry. These devices are used to interface between demand control, SCADA, or other telemetry systems and the electric meters to acquire power use information. All legacy demand control products such as Savergy and Synergetics were consolidated under the new Energy Sentry trademark that Brayden uses today.
In 2005, Brayden calls Loveland, Colorado home with its all-electric headquarters. The company designed and built a custom all-electric headquarters to be used as a demonstration building for use in engineering and testing new products, as well as providing a real-world demonstration site for the company’s products.
Today, Brayden actively markets its demand control systems and software to residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural and utility customers in the United States and internationally. Residential markets are limited by the availability of demand-based rates. Currently, only about 15 utilities in the United States offer residential demand-based rates to their residential customers. Unlike the residential market, every utility in every state has demand-based rates for commercial and industrial customers.
Brayden Automation continues to expand its dealer network across the country and works with electric utilities to spread awareness of this peak demand technology. Demand rates are not widely known or understood, and as such, commercial utility customers are generally not aware of the opportunity for electric cost savings. Brayden continues to forge ahead in efforts to educate people on demand rates and the benefits of electric demand control.
