A-Series* II Branch Circuit Monitoring [BR]
The path to saving energy starts with energy monitoring. With its ability to identify usage down to the individual branch circuit, this panelboard delivers that information, so people can act on it.
Just tie your AQ or AE A-Series II panelboard with branch circuit monitoring (BCM) into a building automation system for circuit meter usage tracking and detailed energy power monitor capabilities.
Now offering Split or Solid Core based BCM - See features below.
Features and Benefits
- Monitors each circuit in the panelboard (up to 42 circuits,125A max), with option of monitoring the mainbreaker, resulting in maximum monitoring capability.
- Monitors voltage, amperage, power, and energy - reporting a significant amount of data to analyze for potential cost-saving actions.
- User configurable alarm registers allow you to set thresholds, which helps with load management.
- Communicates via Modbus RTU, a versatile and widely used protocol.
- A-Series II panelboard features:
- Symmetrical design - top or bottom mount
- Galvanized enclosures with removable endwalls
- Flush or surface mounting
- Interiors that allow straight-in wiring
