Schneider Electric today announced the introduction of the PowerLogic PM5000 series power meter. This newest addition to the PowerLogic portfolio of power and energy meters is engineered on a compact and high performance platform. A range of models cover the full spectrum of buildings and industrial applications, within a wide range of value propositions. The highly-accurate, reliable meters are compliant with IEC 61557-12, IEC 62052/53 and IEC 61053-22 metering standards: PM5100 and PM5300 models are class 0.5S while PM5500 models are class 0.2S. Each meter in the PowerLogic PM5000 series offers combinations of features intended to fully complement the requirements of energy cost management applications. Essential features such as different communication and I/O options, a battery-backed real-time clock, alarms, multiple tariff schedules, MID compliance and data and event logging ensure the PM5000 series has the capabilities to perform energy cost allocation and tenant metering / sub-billing.These high performance meters directly connect to networks rated up to 690 V L-L without potential transformers. Internal memory stores key information and data logging capacities enable energy management dashboards. The range-topping PM5500 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 without the need for an additional hub thereby saving costs.
