November 26, 2012 - In addition to voltages, X20AP can measure currents, frequencies, and reactive components on all phases. Current and voltage measurements up to 31st harmonic promote precision, while sensitivity and fourth channel make unit suited for measuring leakage currents on neutral line. Measurement value curves recorded by module can help in by providing basis for optimizing traverse paths within machine. Variants for connecting 20 mA, 1 A, and 5 A transformers are available.

Clarity About Voltage, Current and Frequency

B&R presents the X20AP energy measurement module

The first step to improving energy efficiency is being able to measure and evaluate the amount of power actually being consumed. Any deviations from normal values can be used to identify the condition of the machine and evaluated through the use of monitoring systems such as the EnMon energy monitoring package included in B&R's APROL process control system. The new X20AP energy measurement module from B&R is able to do just that: measure voltages, currents, frequencies and reactive components on all phases. Current and voltage measurements up to the 31st harmonic elevate the module to the highest level of precision while its extreme sensitivity and fourth channel make it perfectly suited for measuring leakage currents on the neutral line.

Higher performance through integrated intelligence
By preprocessing signals and providing measurements together with calculated effective performance values as sets of digital variables, this newest member of the compact B&R X20 family takes some of the load off the CPU. Measurement value curves recorded by the module can help in many ways, such as providing the basis for optimizing traverse paths within a machine, in turn contributing to further energy efficiency.

Three variants of this B&R energy measurement module for connecting 20 mA, 1 A and 5 A transformers are available.
