PM 8000PowerLogic PM8000 series power meter,Schneider Electric’s newest addition to itsPowerLogic portfolio of power and energy meters, now includes power quality (PQ) compliance and analyses capabilities once reserved for more advanced meters. In line with power quality standards IEC 61000-4-30 Class S and IEC 62586, the PowerLogic PM8000 series meters can be used for auditing the quality of your electrical supply. The meters also have such power quality analysis capabilities as EN 50160 compliance, sag/swell detection, waveform capture, disturbance direction detection, and trending and forecasting, to help facility managers detect, mitigate and correct adverse conditions.

"Power quality monitoring is crucial for power-critical facilities like hospitals, data centres, and large manufacturers," notes Jim Passmore, offer manager for Schneider Electric. "We designed the PM8000 series to aid with both PQ compliance monitoring and analysis. Data accuracy is assured to IEC 61000-4-30 Class S and IEC 62586 standards when verifying contractual supply levels. If a PQ event does occur, the patented disturbance direction detection feature helps identify the location by determining if it occurred upstream or downstream of the meter, so correcting the problem is much faster."

PowerLogic PM8000 series meters have the ability to perform nearly any metering job at key points throughout a facility. The meters are compliant with ANSI C12.20 Class 0.2, IEC 62053-22 Class 0.2S (real energy), and IEC 61557-12. Meters are available in both panel-mount and DIN rail-mount form factors, and boast high-visibility colour displays.
