Smart Metering

Highly accurate electric meters can deliver powerful information that can guide valuable business decisions. Meters can show where to focus energy conservation efforts. Meters also help identify when equipment needs to be serviced and monitoring energy use in real time can help reduce peak kW Demand.

An innovative metering solution can be meter1configured to oversee an entire manufacturing process, assembly line or a  warehouse, or it can monitor a specific piece of critical equipment. Legacy works in partnership with meter manufacturers as an authorized OEM to design and install advanced and cost-effective smart-metering systems. Various meter models and configurations are available depending on the number of loads we want to monitor.

47 ways drawing 1As an example, one model can support up to 45 Current Transformers (CTs) and can be programmed for single-phase or poly-phase applications. These meters measure everything from amperage, voltage, watts, power factor, kW demand, Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), kWh, kVh and kVArh.

An optional 80-character display can show data at a glance. A number of meters can be configured to upload all the combined data to a cloud server using a preferred communications protocol such as MODBUS or BACnet.

These meters can also be configured to record data from other types of meters or sensors such as water or gas meters. That makes it possible to view all the energy and utility information on one platform and on one dashboard.

operation1The Energy Information Management System (EIMS) compiles all the data in  real time so that powerful decision-making information can be viewed on any device, including mobile devices. It's also possible to program pre-set alarms for fault or other critical conditions that require monitoring or action. Facility managers or maintenance staff can be alerted via email or text message for immediate response.
