Power meter gives cost-savings boost for networks up to 690V
Schneider Electric has launched an addition to the PowerLogic portfolio of compact power and energy meters. The PM5000 power meter series covers the spectrum of commercial and industrial applications within a range of budgets.
The devices are compliant with IEC 61557-12 and IEC 62053-22ming standards: PM5100 and PM5300 models are class 0.5S while PM5500 models are class 0.2S. Each meter in the series offers combinations of features intended to complement the requirements of energy cost management applications.
The power meters feature different communication and I/O options, a battery-backed real-time clock, alarms, multiple tariff schedules, MID compliance and data and event logging—for performing energy cost allocation and tenant metering/sub-billing.
Melvin Koh, product marketing manager of EcoBusiness Division at Schneider Electric said: "The PowerLogic PM5000 series...combines high quality and affordability in a meter that is simple to order, easy to use and installs without tools in a standard DIN sized cut-out. Any meter in the PM5000 series is an excellent tool to help you increase your operational efficiency, network reliability and business performance."
The meters support information access in English, and Chinese. Meters directly connect to networks rated up to 690V L-L without voltage transformers. Internal memory stores key information and data logging capacities vary depending on whether PM5300 models or PM5500 models are specified. The range-topping PM5500 models provide a fourth current input, onboard web pages for viewing real-time and stored information, enhanced harmonics capabilities, and dual Ethernet ports to daisy chain meters together, which saves on installation and wiring costs.
