Dent Instruments replaces PowerScout 24 with two new multi-circuit power submeters
By Ellen Cools
October 27, 2017 — Dent Instruments has replaced its PowerScout 24 submeter with two new multi-circuit power submeters: PowerScout 12 HD and PowerScout 48 HD. The two models monitor voltage, current, power, energy and other electrical parameters on multiple single and/or three-phase systems. The products come equipped with a USB port for quick setup and an optional local display for diagnostics and reading real-time values. Standard Serial RS-485 and Ethernet communications are also available in the same unit. Using the USB port and ViewPoint HD software, users can toggle between communication methods, protocols and other parameters in the field. Both meters meet ANSI C-12.20-2010 Class 0.2 revenue grade standards for accuracy.
The PowerScout 48 HD also features two independent voltage inputs, which allow the meter to be used on two 90-600V (phase-to-phase) services simultaneously. The meters can capture kWh/kW energy, demand energy and all relevant energy parameters for diagnostics and monitoring on three-phase or single-phase circuit installations.
