Phoenix Contact's new MID energy meters in the EMpro product range are used for billing purposes. The measuring devices acquire key electrical parameters and communicate them via common interfaces. Product versions for direct current measurement save time and money.
The energy meters have been tested in accordance with the European Measuring Instruments Directive. This enables the measured energy consumption to be charged to the relevant cost centres. The measuring devices record current, voltage, power, and energy. For high currents, versions are available with a measuring input for current transformers. Currents up to 80 A are recorded quickly and directly using models with internal current transformers. All the energy meters enable the voltage to be measured directly.
Other characteristic values are calculated in the processor and supplied via the interfaces. Communication to higher-level control systems is via M-Bus, Modbus/RTU or Modbus/TCP interface. In addition, all of the devices have an S0 output. With a width of just 72mm, the products are particularly space-saving.
