Schneider Powerlink EM lighting control system
By Anthony Capkun
Schneider Electric has added the Powerlink EM system to its G3 intelligent lighting control product family portfolio. The EM system combines individual branch circuit remote control and metering functions in a single lighting panelboard enclosure to ensure users are able to verify the performance of the control system by energy savings by circuit, zone, space, panel or complete lighting system. The Powerlink EM system also provides historical trends that can be used to reveal opportunities for additional energy improvements and generates reports to allocate costs according to actual energy used. Smart metering is accomplished using the PowerLogic branch circuit power meter (BCPM).
