Measuring Devices for Energy Management: Measuring - Monitoring - Communicating
11 August 2011
The new EMpro energy measuring devices from Phoenix Contact acquire and monitor electrical parameters of systems and machines. Using these network-capable devices, all measured data are centrally and locally available. These products set themselves apart as a result of the direct access to measured values and easy configuration by simply pressing a key. The devices can be expanded at any time using the function and communication modules.
The product family comprises three device types. The rail-mounted compact EMpro MA250 measuring device is used for measuring tasks in control cabinets directly at the machine. Using the integrated RS485 interface, the device can be simply incorporated in Modbus and JBus systems. The universal EMpro MA400 measuring device in the front panel fulfills all standard measuring tasks in main distribution panels up to 500 V AC. Using a pluggable RS485 communication module, the product can also be simply incorporated in Modbus and JBus systems. The EMpro MA600 measuring device is especially suitable for all measuring tasks in power supply systems up to 700 V AC – from current and power management up to recording harmonics – including a spectral analysis as well as trend calculation. With the pluggable expansion modules, this device is transformed into a communication professional and can therefore be integrated into fieldbus systems as well as into network structures. The Web server integrated in the Ethernet communication modules facilitates convenient remote access from a main control room. Further, the following communication interfaces are available for the measuring device: RS485/Ethernet gateway with Web server, RS 485, JBus, and Modbus RTU, as well as Profibus DP and Profibus DSUB.
