Schneider releases PowerLogic pm750 electric meter
The new PowerLogic PM750 meter combines quality, versatility and functionality in a cost-effective, ultracompact unit, said Robert Kennedy, director of marketing, Power Management, Schneider Electric North American Operating Division. It can be easily retrofitted into an existing metering system, and is simple to use and configure with user-friendly software and a large, bright LCD display for easy readability, even in extreme lighting conditions and viewing angles.
Complete with power, demand, energy, power factor and frequency measurements, the PM750 meter is available in a variety of configurations and has IEC 62053-21 Class-1 and IEC 62053022 Class 0.5S certification for basic sub-billing or cost allocation. The meter produces high-accuracy measurements that can be used for bill verification, monitoring backup power for critical systems and cost-effective energy management solutions. In addition, the PM750 meter allows for monitoring down to the tool level to help manage cost centers, identify opportunities for demand control and check energy consumption patterns.
For greater control over the performance and overall health of a system, the PM750 meter comes equipped with remote monitoring and control capabilities, allowing it to diagnose and isolate impending problems before they lead to equipment malfunctions or downtime. It features 15 user-configurable alarms, covering the most prevalent over and under conditions in typical power systems. Combining any of the PM750 meters I/Os with these alarms allows for communication through its two-wire RS-845 port for remote monitoring and control.
