Advanced Energy and Power Quality Meters Combine Enhanced Capabilities with Simple Operation

VICTORIA, BC (September 7, 2004) - Power Measurement today introduced the next generation in intelligent metering and control: the ION® 7550 and ION® 7650 energy and power quality meters. Designed for monitoring key distribution points and sensitive loads, the new panel-mount devices "raise the bar" by combining revenue-accurate energy measurements with unique power-quality compliance reporting functions, high-resolution sampling (for capturing fast transient disturbances), expanded onboard memory, and enhanced communications options.

Based on the company's popular ION 7500 and ION 7600 meters, the meters' extended processing power offers significantly increased sampling rates (up to 1024 samples per cycle) for capturing extremely short-duration power transients that other meters may miss. Increased onboard memory allows the devices to store more waveforms, event records, and load trend data, and a new ANSI optical port provides quick and secure access to billing data or historical event records, right from the front panel. Plus, both meters feature extensive setpoint alarming and control capabilities, a variety of on-board analog and digital I/O, and a large high-visibility display. When integrated with Power Measurement's ION EEM enterprise energy management software, the ION 7550 and ION 7650 can help support operational cost reductions, power quality and reliability analysis, demand control, energy procurement, cost allocation, benchmarking and budgeting functions.

The meters simplify power quality evaluation to help plant managers increase productivity, improve efficiency, and maintain reliability. High-accuracy energy measurements can help energy managers evaluate historical consumption data to predict energy usage for the month, allocate costs by department, and identify waste. A modular, customizable design allows each meter to perform unique analysis and control functions while assuring ease-of-use by delivering only the information critical to the application.

The new ION 7550 and ION 7650 meters are available now from Power Measurement. For more information, call Power Measurement toll free at 866-466-7627, or visit www.pwrm.com.
