3-Phase Power Transducer for Measurements in the Three-Phase Supply Network
Within control cabinets, WAGO's new 3-phase power transducer directly measures all parameters in a three-phase electrical supply network. In addition to energy consumption, it is also possible to reliably detect network feedback, such as that from power electronics.
Neatly packaged in a 72 mm wide DIN-rail-mount enclosure, the WAGO 3-Phase Power Transducer measures voltage directly via the connections for the three phases L1, L2 and L3, as well as the neutral conductor N. Current measurement via Rogowski coils is possible as an alternative. All relevant network parameters are determined through these measurements; beyond voltages and currents, these parameters include reactive, apparent and effective power, energy consumption, power factor, phase angle, and mains frequency. Since the current is also measured in the neutral conductor, short circuits can also be detected.
Integrated Communication and Data Logging
A Modbus RTU interface is available for transferring measured values to a higher-level controller. A PC with interface configuration software can be connected via a serial interface. This software also allows visualization of measured values during operation. With the integrated microSD memory card slot, which is also suitable for microSDHC memory cards up to 32 GB, the device can be used as a data logger.
Anticipated availability: February 2019
