Schneider Electric introduces PowerLogic PM8000 series meters



June 17, 2015 – The PM8000 series power meter is the newest addition to Schneider Electric’s PowerLogic portfolio of power and energy meters.

The meters have power quality analysis capabilities, such as EN 50160 compliance, sag/swell detection, waveform capture, disturbance direction detection, and trending and forecasting, to help facility managers detect, mitigate and correct adverse conditions, Schneider Electric said. Meters are available in both panel-mount and DIN rail-mount form factors, and boast colour displays.

“Power quality monitoring is crucial for power-critical facilities like hospitals, data centres, and large manufacturers,” noted Jim Passmore, offer manager for Schneider Electric. “We designed the PM8000 series to aid with both PQ compliance monitoring and analysis. Data accuracy is assured to IEC 61000-4-30 Class S and IEC 62586 standards when verifying contractual supply levels. If a PQ event does occur, the patented disturbance direction detection feature helps identify the location by determining if it occurred upstream or downstream of the meter, so correcting the problem is much faster.”

The PowerLogic PM8000 series meters are built on the company’s patented ION technology platform.
