Module Targets Energy Costs

March 23, 2008
The 750-493 3-Phase Power Measurement Module is designed to integrate comprehensive monitoring of a power supply network with the connectivity of an I/O system.

The 6-channel power measurement module has three channels dedicated to voltage input and three channels dedicated to current input. It is available in 1A and 5A variations to support standard current transformer signal levels. The module directly measures voltage, current, energy consumption and power factor to calculate effective power and track energy consumption rates. The data provided by this module can be used to ensure economical operation and equipment safety. While most competitive power measurement modules are stand-alone units relying on proprietary connectivity to external devices, the 12mm wide 750-493 is a component of a remote I/O or distributed control system. It is compatible with 16 different fieldbus networks, including Ethernet, Profibus, Modbus, and DeviceNet.
