Schneider Electric Launches the Square DŽ PowerLogic E5600 Socket Meter for Tenant Billing
June 21, 2009

Global power and automation leader Schneider Electric today announced the release of the Square D® PowerLogic E5600 socket-based power and energy meter. The new meter provides reliable, revenue-accurate tenant or departmental electricity metering, making it ideal for a wide variety of commercial enterprises, including: office buildings, malls, educational institutions, government facilities, transportation hubs and hospitality venues. Offering benefits ranging from a low cost of installation and ownership, to ease of use, the PowerLogic E5600 meter can replace existing electromechanical metering, or be integrated within a PowerLogic power monitoring system.
“Building an accurate, cost-effective sub-billing solution is as simple as plugging the PowerLogic E5600 meter into a compatible S-base meter socket and performing a few straightforward configuration tasks,” said Paul Golden, National Business Development Manager for commercial properties. “With accuracy verified to ANSI C12.20. 0.2, a national sub-billing standard, property and facility managers can now easily allocate and bill for energy based on actual usage by departments, tenants and cost centers. The meter can reveal opportunities to cut costs, improve energy efficiency, meet mandated energy reduction targets and assist in achieving LEED and Energy Star building certifications.”
Offering industry-standard Modbus communications, plus two digital inputs and two digital outputs, the meter can integrate readings from electric, gas or water meters, or pair with a facility’s existing energy management system. When used with cost-effective PowerLogic Tenant Metering Commercial Edition Software, the PowerLogic E5600 meter forms an end-to-end automated sub-billing solution that can reduce overhead from manual reading or data entry errors and provide a quick and easy means to satisfy government regulations for energy saving initiatives.
