The Acuvim-L is economical choice for monitoring and control of power distribution systems. The L series offers multi-function TRMS measurements, 4 quadrant energy, power quality analysis, demand and over/under limit alarms. These meters fit both 92x92 DIN and 4" ANSI round panel cutouts. The wide operating temperature range (-25 to +70degC) is suitable for both control room and control cabinet installation. RS485 Modbus digital communications is optional. The EL model includes Time-of-Use with 4 tariffs, 12 seasons & 14 schedules.

The quality of the power system is important with increasing use of electronic loads such as computers, ballasts & variable frequency drives. With the Acuvim-L power analysis option, any phase current or voltage can be displayed and the harmonic content calculated. Action can then be taken to prevent overheated transformers, motors, capacitors or neutral wires and nuisance breaker trips.

For more demanding applications, the Acuvim II provides a 5 parameter display, revenue grade metering, ethernet interface, data logging and plug-in modules for additional I/O. More
