New Integrated Power Center from Schneider Electric Incorporates Smart Metering Technology
The Submetering Integrated Power Center incorporates
Schneider Electric’s PowerLogic E4800 series multi-circuit meter for accurate
multi-tenant building, energy conservation
Palatine, Ill. – June 15, 2010 – Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, today announced the addition of the Submetering Integrated Power Center (IPC) to its Square D® by Schneider Electric Integrated Power and Control Solutions (IPaCS) portfolio. The fully customizable IPaCS Submetering IPC combines the custom-engineered integrated power center solution with the advanced metering capabilities of the Square D PowerLogic® E4800 series multi-circuit energy meter. Ideal for multi-tenant and multi-department buildings, such as high rise office buildings, hotels, condominiums and apartments, shopping malls and medical facilities, the IPaCS Submetering IPC provides property owners with a factory-assembled, pre-wired power system equipped with a metering solution that allows building managers to accurately track and bill energy usage for individual tenants.
Mounted inside the IPaCS Submetering IPC enclosure, the compact PowerLogic E4800 enables revenue-accurate submetering of individual tenants with advanced communications technology, while saving valuable floor and wall space. The data output from the E4800 series multi-circuit breaker provides facility managers and tenants with valuable information about their energy usage, allowing them to better manage their total energy consumption, reduce operational costs and increase energy efficiency. Real-time and status information from the E4800 meter can be accessed with Schneider Electric’s EnergyView Online solution and other online power monitoring solutions.
Designed and manufactured to comply with National Electric Code (NEC) and UL requirements, the components of Schneider Electric’s IPaCS Submetering IPC are assembled and tested in a factory controlled environment, ensuring the highest quality standards are met. During the factory installation the panels, meters and current transformers (CT) are mounted, and wiring between the internal components is completed, reducing on-site installation time, labor costs and associated labor risk.
“The new Square D IPaCS Submetering IPC from Schneider Electric provides multi-tenant property owners with a comprehensive power center solution that is equipped with the advanced, highly accurate PowerLogic multi-circuit energy meter,” said Craig Jones, product manager of Square D IPaCS for Schneider Electric. “With the addition of the PowerLogic E8400 meter in the IPaCS Submetering IPC solution, building owners can provide accurate utility costs to tenants, helping make each more accountable for their own energy usage. Recent studies show that when tenants are held responsible for their energy consumption, they are more likely to reduce usage, which leads to energy conservation and greater efficiency.”
