Schneider Electric Launches PowerLogic PM8000 Line of Meters

April 27, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

PowerLogic-PM8000Capabilities once reserved for more advanced power and energy meters now come standard in Schneider Electric’s PowerLogic PM8000 series for industrial and critical power facilities.

The PowerLogic PM8000 series’ power quality analysis capabilities include EN 50160 compliance, sag/swell detection, waveform capture, disturbance direction detection, automated alarm configuration, trending and forecasting – which help facility managers detect, mitigate and correct adverse conditions.

In addition, the PM8000 series helps facilities protect their infrastructure by addressing power quality issues before they cause problems that may damage or shorten the life of expensive equipment. The PM8000’s four-metered current inputs allow direct measurement of 3-phase currents and neutral current for an enhanced view of harmonics to mitigate excessive heating and premature failure of transformers, while trending and alarming detect fluctuations in current pull of critical equipment to prevent motor failure.
