RMS Energy is committed to providing the most comprehensive, innovative and forward-looking electrical engineering and power systems engineering solutions available in the United States. This means we constantly seek and implement the latest advanced technology to help our skilled teams perform better to keep your systems operational longer.

One vital aspect of our work is testing for electromagnetic signals that can interfere with nearby homes, businesses or personal electronic devices. High voltage power equipment, such as transformers, generators, bus ducts, circuit breakers and other components, generates radio frequency signals. Certain signals can indicate that equipment is experiencing problems or approaching breakdown.

Trained technicians from RMS Energy are skilled and equipped to test for these signals in order to prevent breakdowns, electrical faults or other equipment damage that could lead to costly outages or personal injuries.


Electromagnetic Signature Analysis (EMSA) is a highly advanced technology representing a major step forward in electrical testing and diagnostics. EMSA testing is performed while electrical system facilities are at full power. No shutdown or outage is necessary, allowing equipment to run unimpeded. This is a major advantage to energy clients that are concerned about downtime during scheduled maintenance procedures. RMS Energy teams are fully trained and equipped to perform EMSA testing in the field.​

  • Online, non-invasive testing

  • No outage required

  • Detects defects in generators, bus systems, transformers, motors, switchgear, switchyards and associated electrical system components

  • Static test, typically annual test cycle

  • Employs proprietary hardware, software and handheld Radar 246A EMI Sniffer technology

Another advanced electrical technology used by RMS Energy is called Watchkeeper Monitoring. As the name implies, this is an advanced system designed to keep valuable electrical assets and your business operational around the clock. We use complex signal analysis monitoring to detect even the smallest of faults before they fail.

  • Electrical signature analysis performance is constant, 24 hours a day

  • Same system as EMSA testing, but with a powerful onsite computer to constantly analyze data signals

  • State-of-the-art proprietary software samples, captures and analyzes data

  • Detects system problems immediately when they occur and notifies Command Center

EMSA testing and Watchkeeper Monitoring allow RMS Energy technicians to detect the slightest indications of errors or potential problems, so we can prevent major problems that cost you significantly in time and resources.
