The AcuRev Power and Energy Meter is used for real time metering. It measures the energy consumption of a facility, multi-tariff time of use and also monitors power quality.
The recommended option for facility managers who monitor trends, produce analysis and create reports for their own use or for their clients.
In simple words, it is a Multi-circuit power metering system that monitors kilowatt hour (kWh), power, energy, demand, peak demand and time of use (TOU) in high density applications.
The energy and power meter works well for tenant sub metering, office buildings, apartments, condominiums, shopping malls, data centers, commercial facilities and in any branch circuit monitoring where multiple units require monitoring.
The AcuRev Power and Energy Meter features True RMS metering of energy parameters and offer 4 programmable tariff periods with 12 independent seasons, 14 schedules and 10 year holiday configuration.
AcuRev Energy and Power Meter has an inbuilt data logging feature that can be used for historical recording. With a data logging and data posting interval of 15 seconds. It also comes with highly advanced communication options such as:
- HTTP/HTTPs Post
- FTP Post
- sFTP Server
For wireless communication, it offers the following options:
- Serial RS485
When it comes to power quality monitoring the AcuRev Energy and Power Meter will prevent any system failures with harmonic analysis and advanced power quality event logging with waveform capture.
The device also has external current transformers for retrofit applications.
Its two-tier user management system provides an efficient monitoring and access.
With the AcuRev Energy and Power Meter you get an optional free HTTP/HTTPs and FTP data post to the cloud-based metering data storage. You are able access all your devices on a central platform, download and even send out data online. With simple data visualization for energy profiling.
The energy and power meter also allows you to set up to 10 different alarms that will go off whenever there is an abnormality in the power quality. It will then give you buzzer and light notification and even automatically shut down the equipment.
The current input options for the AcuRev Energy and Power Meter 2000 series are as follows;
- 1EM: 9 circuits with external CT-33mv secondary input
- 2EM: 18 circuits with external CT-333mv secondary input
