Qualified statements on energy consumption and power quality cannot be achieved with measurements that are restricted just to the point of common coupling (PCC). If you want to discover fault sources or energy waste, it is necessary to monitor at several points across the grid. The resolution of the measurement is an important factor.
The new UMG 103-CBM is the ideal solution for this task. The extremely compact and affordable universal measurement device requires a width of just 71.5 mm on the mounting rail and so fits conveniently into any distribution panel. Along with a large number of energy values and electrical measured values it offers a multitude of additional functions such as the measurement of harmonics, saving of minimum and maximum values, operating hours counter and bi-metallic strip function. It can be operated both as a Slave to a higher-level device, such as the UMG 604E for example, or directly connected with an Automation System or PLC.
A wide variety of application areas is opened due to the clock, battery and memory. It is suitable for the measurement and checking of electrical characteristics, the energy consumption and for monitoring the power quality, e.g. harmonics. Suitable applications include energy distribution systems, cost centre accounting and threshold value monitoring.
The meter can also be connected to LoRaWAN® networks over ModBus LoRa® interfaces.
