Schneider Electric, a global specialist in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, announced the expansion of the PowerLogic ION9000 series power meter range with the PowerLogic ION9000T. Engineered on the tPowerLogic platform, the ION9000T adds transient capture capabilities, in order to help critical facilities avoid outages, equipment damage, failures, and interruption of operations.
Originating inside a customer’ facility or from the utility grid, transient voltages can damage a facility’s electrical systems and disappear before they can be detected. Industrial facilities can experience many such transients every hour, with voltage impulses exceeding 5 to 10 times the nominal system voltage. Discovering these harmonics and their root causes, and then taking steps to mitigate them, extends the life of equipment insulation.
The PowerLogic ION9000T meter builds on the latest generation of power quality meters and the he ION9000 and ION7650. It shares the core of the original meters, but also adds high-speed transient capture capabilities:
Like, the ION9000, the ION9000T is an element in the EcoStruxure Power platform, part of Schneider Electric’s Schneider Electric’s open, interoperable, IoT-enabled system architecture focused on around safety, reliability, efficiency, sustainability and connectivity. The ION9000T is an addition to the company’s connected products offers and is a platform within a connected and integrated power distribution network.
