New DIN rail meters help make buildings more efficient
Meters offer advanced power and energy monitoring for facility managers to better understand the consumption behaviour of their buildings.
Schneider Electric has the released the iEM3000, EM3500 and PM3200 series, three-phase, DIN rail-mounted range of energy and power meters ideal for energy reporting, bill validation and cost allocation applications. The meters vary from basic kWh meters for the most basic applications to advanced power meters capable of network monitoring applications. Designed to be simple, reliable and efficient to use, the iEM3000, EM3500, PM3200 series makes energy efficiency more accessible for tertiary and industrial buildings.
“To save energy you must know how your energy is consumed, and that’s why it’s important to have the right meters at the right place in the network,” says Samuel Coupel, Product Manager – Energy Management for Schneider Electric. “This means gathering device status and energy consumption data from many points throughout your electrical distribution network. With ten different models to choose from, it’s easier for you to select the best meter that’s right for you.”
The iEM3000, EM3500 and PM3200 series meters are feature-rich. For example, the iEM3000 offers both direct connect and CT-connected meters, basic meters for manual reading, pulse outputs for Water, Air, Gas, Electricity, Steam (WAGES) applications, and multi-tariff meters with digital inputs, digital outputs and communications, so users can divide consumption over four periods to help discriminate peak and off-peak consumptions, work days and weekends, or different energy sources (i.e., utilities versus generator). The iEM3000, EM3500 and PM3200 series meters share numerous design features that help save installation time, costs, and space for panel builders. Easy comb connections and the separation of power and communication connections help increase safety and make wiring simpler for the installer.
These new ranges of DIN rail meters are a key component in any energy efficiency strategy. When integrated with Energy Management software like StruxureWare Power Monitoring 7.0, the meters gather the information necessary for electrical managers to optimise energy consumption in their buildings and enable energy efficient practices for their tenants.
