GE Says New Power and Energy Meter for Building Automation Industry Improves Energy Usage, Costs
GE announced the release of the Multilin EPM 6010, a high accuracy, revenue-class power meter that can communicate using both the BACnet/IP and Modbus TCP protocols.
The BACnet protocol is used today in building automation projects to integrate HVAC, lighting, elevators and other devices to building management systems to better control energy usage and costs. The EPM 6010 provides energy use data allowing the automation system to better respond to changes in demand, the company says. The Multilin EPM 6010 gives building management systems access to 40 predefined BACnet objects, which allows the meter to integrate into the automation system. In addition to BACnet, the meter’s web interface allows users to track energy usage remotely with a standard browser, and the Modbus TCP interface permits interoperability with HMI software such as Multilin EnerVista Viewpoint Monitoring.
Along with its advanced communications capabilities, the EPM 6010 meter provides true RMS multifunction measurements including voltage, current, power, frequency and 0.2 percent energy accuracy in compliance with modern IEC and ANSI accuracy standards, according to GE.
