PM800 series power meters, which the company says are designed to optimize the monitoring of electrical installations in industrial, commercial or critical power environments.
The new “Transparent Ready” Ethernet port offers fast access to a meter’s 3-phase energy and power quality data using a standard Web browser, e-mail or power and energy management software. Facility and operations personnel can use the power meters as part of a complete PowerLogic solution to help reduce energy-related costs and avoid power disturbances or other conditions that put equipment and productivity at risk, says Schneider Electric.
The company says that PowerLogic PM800 series power meters offer more integrated measurement, I/O and connectivity features than is typical in their price class, and “the Ethernet module’s ability to connect directly to a corporate intranet or the Internet without the need for a separate Ethernet gateway makes the meters the most affordable option for combined power quality compliance metering, disturbance monitoring, cost allocation or demand management applications.”
