Digital meters monitor local energy consumption

Finder, digital energy meter

Finder’s 7E Series of digital energy meters can accurately monitor and measure electricity consumption in HVAC, lighting and other environmental control equipment. These meters have a 7-digit LCD display of total and partial kWh consumed, instantaneous power, voltage and current.

The range covers single-phase metering of currents up to 35 A, 3-phase up to 35 A for both day and night tariffs, and up to 1.5 kA via a current transformer.

To support remote energy management via a centralised BMS, these meters have a pulsed, open collector interface. The 3-phase models also provide an error display indicate missing phase or wrong current direction.
