VPInstruments: measurement of true power consumption with the new 3 Phase Power Meter

The 3 Phase Power Meter from VPInstruments measures true power

VPInstruments’ 3 Phase Power Meter measures true power, as it measures the voltage and current of all three phases.

VPInstruments, manufacturer of leading flow metering equipment for easy insight into energy flows, introduces the highly accurate 3 Phase Power Meter. This newest addition to the portfolio measures true power, as it measures the voltage and current of all three phases. It provides power, voltage, current, cos(phi) and many more electrical parameters. All of these are communicated via the RS485 (Modbus RTU) interface. VPInstruments 3 Phase Power Meter is the recommended power meter for permanent measurements.
The 3 Phase Power Meter comes in different voltage ranges to fit specific measurement applications. Models are available for single- and three phase configurations. The 0.333 VAC CT inputs enable connection to universal current transformers. Or just rely on VPInstruments Current Transformers to complete the power measurement solution.
Applications:
* Power consumption of compressors
* General purpose power measurement
* Electricity sub metering
* Pumps, Ventilators, and many more.
Specifications:
* Measures up to three phases
* +/- 0.5% accuracy
* RS485 (Modbus RTU) output
* Delta or Wye types available
* For permanent installation
In most production plants, the compressed air system consumes between 10 and 25 percent of all electricity. Monitoring the efficiency of compressed air equipment is key to realizing energy savings. By combining the 3 Phase Power Meter with a VPFlowScope DP flow meter, which has been installed at the discharge of the compressor, the performance and efficiency of the compressor can be monitored. Monitoring compressor performance continuously enables to see changes in efficiency which may be due to clogged inlet filters, cooling problems, malfunctioning drains and other maintenance issues.
The expansion of the product portfolio with this great power meter, shows VPInstruments’ insight in providing the complete monitoring solution for compressed air and industrial gases.
VPInstruments offers industrial customers easy insight into energy flows with products that are recommended by leading energy professionals worldwide and offer the most complete measurement solution for compressed air flow, gas flow and electric energy consumption. The company’s monitoring software VPVision can be used for all utilities, and enables to see where, when and how much can be saved. VPInstruments products can be found all over the world, serving all industrial markets, for example; automotive, glass manufacturing, metal processing, food and beverage and consumer goods.
