The network-capable meters acquire and monitor the characteristic electrical data of machines and systems. The devices can be expanded with communication and function modules to meet the requirements of an extensive energy management system, ensuring future-proof planning and investment. A Web server, integrated in the Ethernet expansion modules, facilitates convenient online configuration and remote access to the most important electrical parameters.
This family of measuring devices offers the optimum solution for each and every measurement task: From the simple measurement of local loads using the compact, DIN rail-mounted EMpro MA250 device, to measuring tasks in power supply applications up to 700 V AC with the EMpro MA600 device for front panel mounting. The meters can be flexibly equipped with additional function and communication modules for expanding plants and systems. These modules can be simply integrated into all of the usual network structures via a communication interface: with RS485/Ethernet gateway with Web server, RS485, JBus and Modbus RTU, as well as Profibus DP and Profibus DSUB. This means that the most important measured energy values are now centrally available in the main control room. These values range from current and power measurements up to the measurement of harmonics and trend calculations for production systems.
