Dent Instruments and Emerson reveal “industry-first” wireless power meter (Spring 2016)
By Renée Francoeur
April 29, 2016 – Dent Instruments has combined their PowerScout 3037 power meter with Emerson’s “smart wireless” technology to provide “a measurement solution that will greatly impact energy efficiency and sustainability”.
“Dent’s PowerScout meters coupled with Emerson’s WirelessHART technology and global reach creates a much-needed energy information solution for our mutual commercial and industrial customers,” said Christopher Dent, president of Dent Instruments.
This joint solution includes measurement of over 20 energy variables, according to Dent, and plug-and-play deployment in new or existing WirelessHART mesh networks.
The new meter monitors voltage, current, power, energy, and other electrical parameters on single and three-phase electrical systems with revenue-grade accuracy.
Customer trial devices are available now through Emerson’s Therm-O-Disc business unit.
