High-Accuracy Power Meter

Aug. 1, 2006
As the latest addition to the Series 800 PowerLogic power meter family, the Square D PM870 power meter combines accurate energy and power measurement with power-quality capabilities not typically found in a compact power meter, says the vendor.

Designed for electrical installations with power-sensitive processes, the PM870 can help facility managers establish and maintain LEED certification through measurement, verification and reduction of energy consumption. The PM870 meter provides disturbance detection and configurable waveform capture, used to detect, capture and troubleshoot current and voltage sags and swells that can disrupt sensitive processes. With zero blind-time metering, the PM870 is designed to simultaneously monitor all three phases of voltage and current with extreme accuracy, even for fast-varying loads. The PM870 meter’s compact, 96mm x 96mm size and mounting depth of 70mm make it suitable for installation in low voltage switchboards, stand-alone machines and other commercial and industrial applications.
