July 10, 2014 – Schneider Electric’s PowerLogic PM5000 series power meter is compliant with all applicable metering standards. PM5100 and PM5300 models are rated accuracy class 0.5S, while PM5500 models are rated accuracy class 0.2S. Features include different communication and I/O options, a battery-backed real-time clock, alarms, multiple tariff schedules, and data and event logging. The meters are designed to integrate with Schneider Electric’s StruxureWare software suites and gateways for energy and sustainability management. With international language support, these meters directly connect to networks rated up to 690 V L-L without voltage transformers, reducing installation costs, the company says. Data logging capacities vary across the range, and a DIN-mountable variant is also available. The models provide a fourth current input, onboard web pages for viewing real-time and stored information, enhanced harmonics capabilities and dual Ethernet ports to daisy chain meters together.
