Global power and automation leader Schneider Electric today announced the addition of a one-meter PowerLogic® High Density metering (HDM) cabinet to its existing range of pre-assembled 8-meter and 16-meter enclosures. Designed to provide affordable energy monitoring for commercial properties, including office buildings and retail malls, the factory assembled and wired one-meter HDM cabinet is available in Type 3R outdoor, or Type 1 indoor configurations. Offered with a choice of high-functionality PowerLogic meters, the new one-meter HDM cabinet is suitable for a wide variety of power monitoring and energy efficiency applications. It enables facility managers to allocate and accurately bill for energy based on actual usage by departments, tenants and cost centers. 

"Space-saving PowerLogic HDM cabinets offer contractors, consultants and architects a low installed cost, exceptional scalability and metering accuracy verified to national sub-billing standards (ANSI C12.20. 0.5 Accuracy Class or ANSI C12.16. 1.0 Accuracy Class)," said Larry W. Rygiel, National Business Development Manager, Commercial Solutions for Schneider Electric. He also noted that they offer industry-leading flexibility, quality and versatility in cabinets that are designed to be easy for contractors to specify, purchase and install in new construction and retrofit projects. 

To simplify mounting, one-meter PowerLogic HDM cabinets offer installation keyholes, while eight and 16-meter cabinets feature mounting channels and surface mount flanges. HDM cabinets can be specified for single and three-phase power systems and are available for a wide array of voltage ranges. Open architecture protocols enable easy integration with existing energy management systems, remote terminal units or advanced PowerLogic energy management software. When paired with a PowerLogic EGX solution, power system data can be accessed through Ethernet and Web browsers. In conjunction with cost-effective PowerLogic Tenant Metering Software, PowerLogic HDM products form an accurate and reliable 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.
