Schneider Electric Announces New Addition to the Portfolio o
BOSTON, Jan. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Schneider Electric, the global specialist in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced the expansion of the PowerLogic™ ION9000 series power meter range with the PowerLogic ION9000T. Engineered on the trusted PowerLogic platform, the new ION9000T adds high-speed transient capture capabilities, helping critical facilities avoid outages, equipment damage, failures, and interruption of operations.
Originating inside a customer' facility or from the utility grid, high-speed transient voltages can damage a facility's electrical systems and disappear before they can be detected, ultimately leading to poor performance, gradual breakdown, or abrupt failure. Industrial facilities can experience many such transients every hour, with voltage impulses exceeding 5 to 10 times the nominal system voltage. Discovering these harmonics and their root causes, and then taking steps to mitigate them, extends the life of equipment insulation.
"Legacy power meters aren't fast enough to capture a transient that occurs in a millionth of a second, does its damage, and disappears. The ION9000T samples at 10 MHz on 4-phase voltages, so it can capture and record these sub-cycle transients and help facility managers quickly get to the root cause of these events," said Drew Reid, Offer Manager, Power Solutions, Schneider Electric. "Fortified with onboard power quality analytics, this is a powerful tool in reducing exposure to the unnecessary risks that threaten operations and power reliability."
Powerful Innovation at Six Levels
The PowerLogic ION9000T meter builds on the advancements of the latest generation of power quality meters and the successes of the ION9000 and ION7650. It shares the core innovations of the original meters, but also adds high-speed transient capture capabilities:
An EcoStruxure™ Power connected offer
