MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY FOR HIGH-DENSITY MONITORING
The PowerScout 24 is a versatile, multi-channel instrument. The modular design allows it to be configured for monitoring multiple electrical circuits (sharing a common voltage source) or for current-only monitoring of branch circuits. It can be supplied with virtually any combination of DENT’s internally-shunted split-core or RoCoil CTs. Monitor any combination of up to 8 three-phase or 24 single-phase electrical devices with the PowerScout 24. With data updates every 1 second and ANSI C12.20- 2010 Class 0.5 revenue grade accuracy (depending on CT), the PowerScout 24 is well-suited for data center monitoring, tenant sub-metering, and for accountability metering in commercial, retail, and industrial facilities. The PowerScout 24 is available as a bare circuit board (UL Recognized) or with a convenient rugged enclosure (UL Listed).
COMMUNICATIONS: INDUSTRY STANDARD MODBUS OR BACNET
Communications interface to the PowerScout 24 can be accomplished through standard serial RS-485 or USB, or optional Ethernet. The PowerScout can use either the BACnet IP or MS/TP protocol or Modbus TCP or RS-485 protocol for sending commands or retrieving data.
The PowerScout series instruments are line powered and do not require external power. Its power supply can accommodate service voltages ranging from 80- 600V (phase-to-phase). DENT’s patented PhaseChek™ circuitry includes a 3 LED indicator display that confirms proper CT-to-phase installation.
OTHER STANDARD FEATURES
The PowerScout 24 features 8 digital outputs - one per meter element. Use these digital outputs to send kWh or other pulses to a pulse counting device, such as a datalogger.
The PowerScout 24 has two digital input ports which are used to count, accumulate, and scale pulses received from non-DENT external pulse initiating meters such as gas, water, or other electrical meters.
In addition, the PowerScout 24 has a 5VDC, 200mA power out to power other devices such as a radio or gateway device.
