Manage Power, Energy Consumption

The Snap-AIPM-3 analog input module calculates true power, volt-amps, and power sums for all three phases of power in a single module.

It mounts on a Snap I/O rack and measures volts AC RMS and amps AC RMS. When used with the vendor’s Snap PAC R-series controller or Snap I/O brain, the module can play a key role in controlling and regulating equipment and facility power consumption. The input module monitors up to 14 parameters of data relating to power generation and consumption. It simultaneously measures voltage and current for each of the three phases and calculates true power and volt-amps for each phase. The module also calculates true power sums for all three phases. Calculations are executed within the module and are sent to the Snap PAC brain or controller. From these figures, other variables, such as power factor, can be determined, thereby providing the data needed to track overall power usage and energy consumption, maintain power quality and potentially reduce energy costs. List price is $495.
