New VPInstruments 3 Phase Power Meter

VPInstruments introduces a highly accurate 3 Phase Power Meter. The newest addition to the company’s portfolio measures true power, since it measures the voltage and current of all three phases. The 3 Phase Power Meter, which is recommended for permanent measurements, provides power, voltage, current, cos (phi) and many more electrical parameters. All are communicated via the RS485 (Modbus RTU) interface.

The new VPInstruments 3 Phase Power Meter

The 3 Phase Power Meter comes in different voltage ranges to fit users’ specific measurement applications. Models are available for single- and three phase configurations. The 0.333 VAC CT inputs enables connection to universal current transformers. Or, users can use VPInstruments’ current transformers to complete the power measurement solution. 

Applications of the 3 Phase Power Meter include power consumption of air compressors, general purpose power measurement, electricity sub metering, as well as pumps, ventilators, and more. By combining it with VPInsuments’ VPFlowScope DP flow meter, which has been installed at the discharge of the air compressor, users can monitor air compressor performance and efficiency. In most production plants, the compressed air system consumes between 10 and 25% of all electricity. Monitoring the efficiency of your compressed air equipment is key to realizing energy savings.
