Square D PowerLogic Branch Circuit Power Meter from Schneider Electric monitors up to 84 branch circuits.

“Unlike other products that only fit a specific hardware vendor's platform, the PowerLogic Branch Circuit Power Meter is designed to fit any power distribution unit or remote power panel design,” says Lee Featherstone, national sales manager, critical power for Schneider Electric’s Power Management business. “BCPM offers the best accuracy in its class across the entire current-monitoring range. We also made it flexible enough for new or retrofit installations and compatible with PowerLogic power monitoring software so customers can easily turn the large amount of data collected by the devices into useful decision-making information.”
The meter monitors up to 84 branch circuits and the main incoming feeds in a power panel or power distribution unit (PDU), extending affordable, accurate power monitoring to the branch circuit level, the company says. It
