Schneider Electric has rolled out the PowerLogic PM5000 series power meter. According to the company, the most recent addition to the PowerLogic line-up of power and energy meters is developed on a compact and affordable platform, and can cover the full spectrum of commercial and industrial applications, within a wide range of budgets.

The highly-accurate, reliable meters are compliant with IEC 61557-12 and IEC 62053-22 metering standards: PM5100 and PM5300 models are class 0.5S while PM5500 models are class 0.2S, added Schneider Electric. Each meter in the PowerLogic PM5000 series offers combinations of features intended to fully complement the requirements of energy cost management applications. Essential features such as different communication and I/O options, a battery-backed real-time clock, alarms, multiple tariff schedules, MID compliance and data and event logging ensure the PM5000 series has the capabilities to perform energy cost allocation and tenant metering/sub-billing.

PowerLogic PM5000

Because the PowerLogic PM5000 series is meticulously engineered for high-end energy cost management applications, it removes any uncertainty about billing for energy costs, noted Melvin Koh, product marketing manager, EcoBusiness division at Schneider Electric. Better still, it combines high quality and affordability in a meter that is simple to order, easy to use and installs without tools in a standard DIN sized cut-out. Any meter in the PM5000 series is an excellent tool to help you increase your operational efficiency, network reliability and business performance.

The meters support information access in English and Chinese. Meters directly connect to networks rated up to 690V L-L without voltage transformers. Internal memory stores key information and data logging capacities vary depending on whether PM5300 models or PM5500 models are specified. The range-topping PM5500 models provide a fourth current input, onboard web pages for viewing real-time and stored information, enhanced harmonics capabilities and dual Ethernet ports to daisy chain meters together, which saves on installation and wiring costs.

PowerLogic PM5000 series meters are available.
