PALATINE, III. - March 18, 2002 - Ideal for sub-tenant metering, the new POWERLOGIC(R) 480V Energy Meter from Square D is easy to install and easy to use. Designed to provide cost-effective metering solutions for monitoring 240V to 480V applications, the meter readings allow commercial contractors and building managers to decide how to charge tenants based on real-time energy consumption.
The expanded range meter is ideal for commercial and industrial submetering projects, including residential and commercial multi-tenant facilities, strip malls and stadiums. The new 480V meter includes a kYZ pulse output contact that can be used to provide control systems with kWhr pulses. The pulse output easily integrates with existing building automation systems.
