Emerson Releases V-Belt iPhone App

Emerson Industrial Automation, a business of Emerson, has announced the release of the Browning V-Belt Efficiency Calculator iPhone Application. The application provides users with a mobile offering of Browning's online V-Belt Efficiency Calculator, which allows users to calculate projected energy savings when upgrading from a wrapped V-Belt to a notched V-Belt. By entering key usage data points, including geographic location, motor horsepower, and days/hours per week, users have the ability to calculate energy savings onsite using the iPhone application. The application also has a payback calculation feature that lets users estimate the amount of their return on investment or days to payback.

The application is available for download on the iPhone and iPod Touch at no charge through Apple's iTunes store by searching for “Browning V-Belt.” Users also can find the direct link to the application on Browning's Facebook page. This application is functional in all of North America.
