The new compact solution
The new range of metering and communication modules (MCx) offers a very interesting solution: current transformer, voltage tap-off, measurement electronics, fieldbus interface and display interface in one enclosure.
Thus considerable wiring and installation effort and expense are avoided.
The MCx modules provide all the relevant measuring data for calculating the power consumption:
- Phase and N conductor currents,
- rms voltages,
- active, reactive and apparent power,
- active, reactive and apparent energy,
- power factor (cos phi).
This helps establish greater transparency in the consumption of electrical energy and cut costs.
MCx is a component for modern energy distribution which can be easily mechanically integrated and where the measured values can be transferred on-location as well as via a fieldbus. It plays an important role in the area of recording energy consumption, control of switchgear, load shedding and diagnostics.
