The Power Xpert Meter 2000 Series power quality instrument monitors the most critical aspects of an electrical distribution system. This premier power quality metering instrument uses the latest in advanced technology to make it simple to use, powerful, scalable and highly flexible.
The embedded Web server displays comprehensive power quality data using standard Internet browsers and allows for device configuration from the browser. The embedded Web server presents real time, historical, and event information in a browser style graphical format to help the user interpret information such as current loading, voltage and power levels, power factor, energy usage, I/O status, power quality measurements, as well as harmonic plots. The embedded Web server also offers a waveform view to visualize steady-state harmonic content which is critical for power quality analysis.
The Web server provides the energy and demand readings required to help manage the cost of energy.
Demand usage patterns can be analyzed with the month-to-month, week-to-week comparison chart built into the meter. Raw data can be exported as a .csv file with the "Save Table" option to other applications for further analysis and graphing.
The Power Xpert Meter 2000 has two levels of configurable event triggers. The on-board meter limits can be set for any measured parameter, for up to 16 limits. If either of the 16 limits are exceeded, an alarm condition will be present and illuminate one of the LEDs on the meter faceplate. The on-board meter out of limits can also be used to energize a relay output, if so equipped. The on board gateway limits can trigger an alarm off of any measured parameter on any of the PXM 2000 model series. These triggers permit pickup, reset and pickup delay to be configured by the user.
The Power Xpert Meter 2000 embedded Web server allows the user to view a list of triggered events. In addition, a separate system log records system operations such as resets.
The Power Xpert Meter 2000 contains the ability to send emails based on an event that has been triggered or cleared along with the option to send an event or data log file. The Power Xpert Meter 2000 also has the ability to send a configurable periodic email with energy and event information.
