A new panel-mounted power-monitoring device (PMD) from Socomec has been launched locally by leading supplier ElectroMechanica (EM). The Socomec DIRIS A-40 has been designed for measuring, monitoring, and reporting electrical energy. The latest PMD offers a range of functions for measuring voltage, current, power, energy, and power quality.
Compliant with IEC 61557-12, implementation is quick and efficient. The three current technologies – namely solid-core, split-core, and flexible (TE, TF and TR/iTR) – allows for a monitoring solution to be implemented on new and existing installations.
IEC 61557-12 is a specific standard for all PMDs designed to measure and monitor electrical parameters in distribution networks. Compliance with the standard ensures a high level of equipment performance, metrology, and also the mechanical and environmental aspects.
A configuration wizard provides step-by-step instructions for the end user, in addition to detecting and correcting configuration errors, thereby slashing commissioning time by half in order to guarantee a reliable monitoring system.
The Socomec DIRIS range consists of Internet of Things (IoT)-ready connected products that can export data automatically for remote processing, without any restrictions on time and storage. The embedded WEBVIEW-S solution optimises metering, alarming, and monitoring functions, with no need for additional software.
Metering consists of the measurement of active, reactive, and apparent energies; a historic record of measurements; a graphical display on a monthly, weekly, daily, or hourly basis; and automatic data export via FTPS in CSV format. Monitoring includes real-time measurement of electrical values; viewing data as graphs or tables; and power-quality analysis of the utility supply and loads.
The Socomec DIRIS A-40 are panel-mounted measurement units ensuring that the end user has access to all the measurements required for carrying out successful energy-efficiency projects, as well as monitoring electrical distribution. All of this information can be analysed remotely using an energy-management software solution.
Thanks to its large backlit LCD display and its multiple viewing screens with direct pushbutton access, the Socomec DIRIS A-4x provides clear readings is easy to use. It directly displays a number of multi-measurement and metering values.
