DENT's PowerScout™3 Plus is a single-point 3-phase submeter that is compatible with either BACnet or Modbus communications protocols. It was designed to provide timely and accurate consumption data necessary to gain the upper hand on electrical costs in today's escalating energy market. These meters can capture kWh/kW energy and demand data as well as virtually all relevant energy parameters for diagnostics and monitoring.
The PowerScout's flexibility, size, and ease-of-use make them ideal tools for gathering detailed consumption information in commercial, industrial, government and retail environments.
Installing the PowerScout 3 Plus is simple thanks to color-coded voltage leads and clearly labeled CTs. DENT's patented PhaseChek™ circuitry includes a three LED indicator display that confirms proper CT-to-phase installation. The PowerScout 3 Plus automatically adjusts for CT orientation, greatly reducing set-up time and all but eliminating installation errors.
The PowerScout 3 Plus uses direct connections to each phase of the voltage and various pre-wired CT options such as split-core current transformers or flexible Rogowski coils (for large loads or large cables and busbars) to monitor current on each phase.
