GE Multilin EPM 6010 communicates using BACnet IP and Modbus TCP
By Anthony Capkun
July 18, 2012 – GE released the Multilin EPM 6010, a power meter that can communicate using both BACnet/IP and Modbus TCP protocols. GE says the EPM 6010 provides accurate and timely energy use data, allowing a building automation system (BAS) to better respond to changes in demand. The meter gives building management systems access to 40 predefined BACnet objects, which allows the meter to integrate into the automation system. In addition to BACnet, the meter’s web interface allows users to track energy usage remotely with a standard browser, and the Modbus TCP interface permits interoperability with HMI software such as Multilin EnerVista Viewpoint Monitoring. The EPM 6010 provides true RMS multifunction measurements, including voltage, current, power, frequency and 0.2% energy accuracy in compliance with modern IEC and ANSI accuracy standards.
