Powerscout Energy & Power Meters

>> 3 Channel Meter Supports Full Range of Splilt-Core or RoCoil Rogowski-Style CTs (Sold Separately)
>> Outputs to a RS-422/485 Serial Communication Supporting BACnet, Modbus or Pulse Only Modes
>> Patented PhaseChek™ LED Indicators Guarantee Correct CT Orientation
>> US and Int'l Versions Available w/ Colored Voltage Leads
>> Requires Powerscout Communications Package (#PS-COMPAK-USB) & Current Transformers (CTs)
The PowerScout 3+ Power Meter can measure over 50 energy and power parameters. This single-point 3-phase power meter features PhaseChek™ circuitry, LED indicators, line-powered 60 to 600 volt Phase-Phase power supply and RS-422/485 serial connection. The Dent PowerScout 3+ supports BACnet and Modbus Industry-Standard Protocols. In addition, the power meter has a "Pulse Output Mode" and when connected to a pulse data logger will log pulses based on accumulated values(s) such as system kWh, kVARh and kVAh. A single BACnet client can support up to 127 Powerscout 3+ and a Modbus Control System can support up to 254 meters.
