Leviton has expanded its revenue-grade line of VerifEye submeters with the addition of the Series 3300 and Series 3500 models. Featuring advanced communication protocols, these highly accurate 0.5 percent accuracy-class kWh/demand meters enable tracking, monitoring and verification of real-time energy usage in commercial and industrial environments. Both meters deliver universal voltage performance and easily integrate with building management systems.
Ideal for typical three-phase, three-wire (Delta) and three-phase, four-wire (WYE) circuits applications, VerifEye Series 3300 and 3500 provide kVA, kVAR, PF and per-phase voltage mea¬surements. Both models feature time-of-use readings and a user-friendly LCD display that provides quick, easy visualization of power status and signal strength. The meters are designed for installation in facilities that are seeking to implement a comprehensive energy management program where the ability to benchmark, load shed, allocate costs and efficiently bill tenants, as well as comply with green building programs and government mandates is desirable.
Field Test Station
TESCO’s new Field Test Station (Catalog No. 2200-F) provides metering professionals with exceptional testing flexibility. The Field Test Station includes a zero insertion force (ZIF) meter socket, voltage and form selection, and connection points to link it with a TESCO Field Test Kit (Catalog No. 621, 630 or GA Series). When combined with a Field Test Kit, the Field Test Station creates a single position, stand-alone, meter accuracy testing device for socket-based meters. Power for the Field Test Station can be supplied via inverter/120VAC or by customer potential via TESCO Field Test Kit. The Field Test Station, with the proper load box, boasts a 50 amp max current source and operates on voltages up to 480 V.
TP-LINK, a global provider of networking products, has delivered a series of gigabit Ethernet switches that break new ground for price and performance for any business looking to upgrade their LAN. TP-LINK’s Jetstream 24-Port and Jetstream 24-Port PoE L2 managed switches are some of the most cost-effective solutions on the market for small and medium businesses. These gigabit access layer switches offer rich management capabilities, strict security policies and reliable performance. Both deliver maximum throughput to high-performance workgroups at the edge of the network. They also feature 4 gigabit SFP slots to give users greater network flexibility.
Ruggedized Ethernet Switch/Router
RAD Data Communications, the manufacturer of Service Assured Networking solutions for utilities and transportation networks, has launched its new ruggedized IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 compliant SecureFlow Ethernet switch/router. SecureFlow provides flexible connectivity for Ethernet intelligent electronic devices and older serial remote terminal units with full redundancy over various topologies using fiber-optic rings, 2/3G cellular modems and external radio systems. The gateway function enables it to comprehend Ethernet IED and serial RTU protocols, so, in utility applications, SecureFlow can convert old IEC-101 SCADA protocols to the new IEC-104 IP-compatible equivalents, or Modbus serial to IP, DNP3 and others. These conversions enable seamless communication of IP SCADA to both old and new RTUs.
