Power metering solution has high-speed, high-accuracy
GE released the Multilin EPM 9900, a high-speed, high-accuracy power quality metering solution for monitoring critical power applications for utilities, large industrial users, and local electric companies.
The EPM 9900 provides a total picture of energy usage and power quality at any metered point in the power distribution and industrial network. The EPM 9900 meter captures and records power system events at a very high speed, high resolution and with high accuracy, enabling users to monitor, mitigate, and troubleshoot potential power quality anomalies. Through the meter’s advanced recording capability, customers can quickly extract data, with download speeds 20 times faster than conventional power quality meters, enabling faster and more informed decision making and in turn maximizing system uptime.
The 10 MHz sampling frequency and the 1 gigabyte storage memory records as short as 1-microsecond transients to large system events spanning minutes and hours. The high resolution recorder is a Class A power quality analyzer of laboratory grade for all critical power applications where process uptime and availability are critical.
