- Published: Thursday, 02 February 2017 10:33
Energy management specialist, Carlo Gavazzi has launched the CPA Series of power analsyers for AC single phase and DC monitoring. A contactless hall effect sensor allows current measurement AC 50-300A and DC 50-400A.
The CPA Series provides a flexible solution for monitoring of both AC and DC power using the same device, the contactless technology ensures a fast connection which minimizes impact on wiring as you do not need to cut and join the power cable, avoiding any production loss.
The inbuilt Modbus/RTU communication port for RS485 connection avoids all the standard problems of analogue signal communications. The CPA series of contactless power analysers are able to measure a comprehensive set of variables such as V, A, W, var, VA, kWh, PF, HZ and THD.
This new CPA series is suitable for four different mounting options either DIN, Panel mount, vertical or horizontal to suit any installation. The plug ‘n’ play setup ensures ease of setup using Carlo Gavazzi’s UCS (universal configuration software) and is fully compatible with the VMUC-EM energy management solution.
The CPA Series family ensure optimal performance in industries such as Photovoltaic monitoring, battery charging systems, AC and DC motor monitoring, industrial process control, conventional energy for both commercial and industrial as well as energy service companies.
