PowerScout 24 Multi-Circuit Power Submeter
Maximum Flexibility for High-Density Monitoring
The PowerScout 24 is a versatile, multi-channel instrument. The modular design allows it to be configured for monitoring multiple electrical circuits (sharing a common voltage source) or for current-only monitoring of branch circuits. It can be supplied with virtually any combination of DENT’s internally-shunted split-core or RoCoil CTs. Monitor any combination of up to 8 three-phase or 24 single-phase electrical devices with the PowerScout 24.
With data updates every 1 second and ANSI C12.20- 2010 Class 0.5 revenue grade accuracy (depending on CT), the PowerScout 24 is well-suited for data center monitoring, tenant sub-metering, and for accountability metering in commercial, retail, and industrial facilities.
Communications: Industry-Standard Modbus or BACnet
Similar to the PowerScout 3037, the PowerScout 24 allows for communication over either BACnet or Modbus protocol via a serial or Ethernet connection (depending on model). Ethernet communications are via either BACnet IP or Modbus TCP. Modbus registers and BACnet objects remain the same between Ethernet and Serial models of the PowerScout 24 meter.
The PowerScout series instruments are line powered and do not require external power. Its power supply can accommodate service voltages ranging from 80- 600V (phase-to-phase). DENT’s patented PhaseChek™ circuitry includes a 3 LED indicator display that confirms proper CT-to-phase installation.
There are four models to choose from: Serial Only or Ethernet Only communications, With or Without an enclosure.
|PS24-N-S||PowerScout 24, circuit board only, Serial Only, Modbus/BACnet|
|PS24-D-S||PowerScout 24, indoor enclosure, Serial Only, Modbus/BACnet|
|PS24-N-E||PowerScout 24, circuit board only, Ethernet Only, Modbus/BACnet|
|PS24-D-E||PowerScout 24, indoor enclosure, Ethernet Only, Modbus/BACnet|
The PowerScout Series meters are not meant to be standalone energy recorders. They are designed to connect as a slave device to a data logger, Remote Terminal Unit (RTU), or building management host network.
