A new panel-mounted power monitoring device (PMD) from Socomec has been launched locally by ElectroMechanica (EM). The Socomec DIRIS A-40 has been designed for measuring, monitoring, and reporting electrical energy. The latest PMD offers a range of functions for measuring voltage, current, power, energy, and power quality. Compliant with IEC 61557-12, implementation is quick and efficient. The three current technologies – namely solid-core, split-core, and flexible (TE, TF and TR/iTR) – allow for a monitoring solution to be implemented on new and existing installations.
IEC 61557-12 is a specific standard for all PMDs designed to measure and monitor electrical parameters in distribution networks. Compliance with the standard ensures a high level of equipment performance, metrology, and also the mechanical and environmental aspects.
A configuration wizard provides step-by-step instructions for the end user, in addition to detecting and correcting configuration errors, thereby slashing commissioning time by half in order to guarantee a reliable monitoring system. The Socomec DIRIS range consists of IIoT-ready connected products that can export data automatically for remote processing, without any restrictions on time and storage. The embedded WEBVIEW-S solution optimises metering, alarming, and monitoring functions, with no need for additional software.
Metering consists of the measurement of active, reactive and apparent energies; a historic record of measurements; a graphical display on a monthly, weekly, daily, or hourly basis; and automatic data export via FTPS in CSV format. Monitoring includes real-time measurement of electrical values; viewing data as graphs or tables; and power quality analysis of the utility supply and loads.
The Socomec DIRIS A-40 has panel-mounted measurement units, ensuring that the end user has access to all the measurements required for carrying out successful energy efficiency projects, as well as monitoring electrical distribution. All of this information can be analysed remotely using an energy management software solution. Thanks to its large backlit LCD display and its multiple viewing screens with direct pushbutton access, the Socomec DIRIS A-4x provides clear readings and is easy to use. It directly displays a number of multi-measurement and metering values.
