Schneider Electric has launched its new Acti 9 iEM3000 Energy Meter Series designed for energy management, monitoring and cost allocation.

A cost effective range of DIN rail-mounted energy meters, the new Acti 9 iEM3000 Series energy meters can easily integrate electrical distribution measurements into the customer’s facility management systems when combined with communication systems such as Smart Link. Using Modbus, LON or BACnet protocols, the meters can also be incorporated into any existing energy management system at commercial and non-critical buildings.

The Acti 9 iEM3000 Energy Meter Series optimises energy use, collects and analyses all consumption data for each type of load or circuit, allocates all energy-related costs, and implements actions to promote energy efficiency.

Available in variants including 63A direct measure (iEM3100 models), current transformers associated (iEM3200 models), and 125A direct measure (iEM3300 models), the Acti 9 iEM3000 energy meter can be used in energy management, cost allocation, energy monitoring in building automation systems, renewable energy monitoring and industrial network monitoring.

Data integrity is ensured with anti-tamper sealing parts preventing accessibility to all metering connections (voltage, current, DI/DO), while date/time of last reset is saved to verify start of measurement campaigns and detect if clock has been altered.

Measurement parameters of the Acti 9 iEM3000 Energy Meter Series include total and partial kWh to discover consumption behaviour; four-quadrant metering to differentiate energy consumption; green technologies (delivered/received); utility penalties (active/reactive); and additional parameters (P, Q, S, 3xI, V, PF, F) to help monitor network balance and overload behaviour.
