The Complete Solution: Current Transformers for Billing Purposes

Growing WAGO’s Portfolio of Current Transformers

WAGO now offers current transformers for billing. The new current transformers have been approved through the conformity assessment process for third-party billing. The billing transformers perfectly complement WAGO’s new energy meters with a transformer connection (item no. 879-3040).

The Complete Solution

The new billing current transformers fortify WAGO's existing line of current and energy measurement solutions. These current transformers readily complement and perfectly combine with WAGO’s energy meters (MID), which are new current and energy measurement technology products. A quick-mount kit allows easy, cost-effective installation. A large number of mounting options gives users tremendous flexibility. The combination of an energy meter and current transformer offers a complete solution.

Your Benefits:

  • The new current transformers have been approved through the conformity assessment process for use in billing third parties
  • Perfect for combining with the transformer meters in WAGO's energy meter product group (item no. 879-3040)
  • Screwless CAGE CLAMP® Connection Technology

Voltage Taps for Insulated Conductors

WAGO’s 855 Series Voltage Taps easily and safely tap the measurement voltage in existing systems. Conductor contact is made via IDC connection for fast voltage tap-off.

The Benefits for You:

  • Safely tap the measurement voltage in no time
  • Tool-free insulation displacement connection guarantees secure installation.
  • 2 A fuse possible, 5 x 25 mm
  • For insulated conductors up to 16 mm2 (6 AWG)

Voltage Taps for Busbars

The Benefits for You:

  • Fast, easy installation on a live busbar with clamp mount or M6/M8 mounting
  • Various marking options for clear identification
  • Universal conductor termination via Push-in CAGE CLAMP® connection technology
  • Fused voltage path protects downstream measurement devices

Current and Voltage Tap

A combination of current transformer and voltage tap, the current and voltage tap can be quickly and easily mounted in the jumper slot of the 95 mm2 (4/0 AWG) high-current through terminal block (285-195).

The Benefits for You:

  • Power data can be directly tapped on the power supply
  • Integrated 25 A/1 A current transformer
  • Complies with accuracy class 0.5 per EN 61869-2 for exact measurement results
  • Fused voltage path protects downstream measurement devices

Current and Voltage Signal Conditioners and Power Measurement Modules

Besides current and voltage signal conditioners which record DC and AC currents and voltages, this impressive range also includes a power measurement module that can measure current and voltage in parallel, convert them to power and output them as an analog standard signal. Additionally, WAGO’s signal conditioner for Rogowski coils offers a solution for retrofitting existing systems. Thus it is not necessary to disconnect the live conductor. The new WAGO 3-Phase Power Measurement Module measures all relevant parameters in a three-phase supply network – voltage, current, power, harmonics, etc. – from within the control cabinet.

Your Benefits:

  • Signal acquisition of DC and AC voltages up to 300 VAC/VDC using modules that are just 6 mm wide
  • AC currents up to 4000 A via Rogowski coil
  • Switchable filter function to prevent signal interference
  • A digital signal output (DO) reacts to freely configurable measurement range limits (this allows use as a threshold value switch – with activation/deactivation delay).

3-Phase Power Measurement Modules

The power measurement modules in a DIN-rail mounting enclosure offer the ideal solution for measuring currents and voltages in a three-phase supply network remotely from the control level. Measured variables such as active/apparent/reactive power, energy consumption, power factor, phase angle and frequency can be accessed via Modbus® interface. Two integrated RJ45 sockets streamline the interconnection of up to 32 devices.

The Benefits for You:

  • Measurement via current transformers or Rogowski coils: Flexible selection of upcoming measurement tasks
  • Slot for microSD cards: Fast and secure mobile measurement, including recording
  • Compact device in DIN-rail-mount enclosure: Saves space in building technology
  • Modbus® Interface (RS-485): Provision of the measured values via Modbus®
  • Digital signal output as pulse output (pulses/kWh are configurable): Continuous energy consumption monitoring
