Markham, ON, Canada — (METERING.COM) — July 20, 2012 – The Multilin™ EPM 6010, a high accuracy, revenue-class power meter that can communicate using both the BACnet/IP and Modbus TCP protocols, has been released by GE.
The BACnet protocol is used today in building automation projects to integrate HVAC, lighting, elevators and other devices to building management systems to better control energy usage and costs.
The Multilin EPM 6010 gives building management systems access to 40 predefined BACnet objects, which allows the meter to seamlessly integrate into the automation system. In addition to BACnet, the meter’s web interface allows users to track energy usage remotely with a standard browser, and the Modbus TCP interface permits interoperability with HMI software such as Multilin EnerVista™ Viewpoint Monitoring.
Along with advanced communications capabilities, the EPM 6010 meter provides true RMS multifunction measurements including voltage, current, power, frequency and 0.2 percent energy accuracy in compliance with modern IEC and ANSI accuracy standards.
