A business division of GE Energy, Digital Energy has announced the availability of a high-accuracy, high speed power quality meter, the Multilin EPM 9900. Designed for monitoring power applications for industrial, electric and utility companies, the EPM 9900 meter provides detail of the power quality and energy usage of metered points in industrial and power distribution network.
Capable of recording waveforms at 1024 samples every cycle with transient captures of more than 166,000 samples per cycle, the EPM 9900 allows customers to extract recorded data at 20 times the download speeds offered by other power quality metering solutions available in the market, enabling maximum system uptime and faster decision making. Furthermore, the EPM 9900 offers a sampling frequency of 10 MHz and a storage memory of one gigabyte that enables recording of power quality and voltage reliability events for effective forensic engineering analysis. The 10 MHz transient record capability is highly suitable for quality sensitive applications in wafer-fabs plants, hospitals and data centers.
The metering and measuring features of the Multilin EPM 9900 meter include an energy accuracy of 0.06%; 8-channel waveform recorder; sag, transient and voltage surge recording capability; high resolution EN6100-4-30 Class A support and EN61000-4-15 flicker meter. Additionally, an internal sensor, powered by the auto-calibrating technology developed by GE, ensures that the meter maintains accurate time and temperature.
The communications features of the Multilin EPM 9900 include 10/100BaseT standard Ethernet ports allows for 8 simultaneous connections; expandable serial ports; Modbus TCP/IP, DNP 3.0, ASCII protocols; optional RS485 / second Ethernet port; maximum of 40 digital status inputs and 16 relay outputs.
The General Manager – Grid Automation at GE Digital Energy, Juan Macias stated that the Multilin EPM 9900 provides high level analysis tools required by users for effectively managing their systems.
