Dent Instruments PS18-D Recording Power Meter
DENT's PowerScout™ 18 is a multi-circuit submeter designed to provide timely and accurate consumption data on up to six 3-phase circuits or 18 single-phase loads. CT types and sizes can be ‘mixed and matched’ on the individual meter elements to maximize the number of circuits monitored at any electrical panel. These meters can capture kWh/kW energy and demand data as well as virtually all relevant energy parameters for diagnostics and monitoring on three-phase or single-phase circuit installations.
The PowerScout's flexibility, size, and ease-of-use make them ideal tools for gathering detailed consumption information in commercial, industrial, government and retail environments.
Installing the PowerScout 18 is simple thanks to a single voltage connection via color-coded voltage leads and clearly labeled CTs. DENT's patented PhaseChek™ circuitry includes a three LED indicator display that confirms proper CT-to-phase installation. The PowerScout automatically adjusts for CT orientation, greatly reducing set-up time and all but eliminating installation errors.
The PowerScout 18 is compatible with either split-core current transformers or flexible Rogowski coils (for large loads or large cables and busbars) to monitor current on each phase.
Communications interface to the PowerScout 18 is through an RS-485 serial connection using the industry-standard Modbus protocol. Up to 43 PowerScout 18 meters may be connected to a single RTU or datalogger for monitoring and recording power usage at multiple locations within a single site.POWER SCOUT DATASHEET
DENT's ViewPoint software utility allows you to easily configure the PowerScout for the connected CTs and to check readings. ViewPoint will help you to:
Easily verify meter installation. Check realtime values before leaving the job site. Read and write to specific Modbus registers. Set the data scalar setting.
