Increasing energy costs have raised the importance of controlling electrical energy. The UMG 604 can be a first step towards control of energy costs. The accurate and precise collection of energy data and electrical parameters can provide a clear picture of your energy consumption. Analysis of the data will allow development of cost reduction measures and the UMG 604 will record data to track improvements as these are implemented.
The UMG 604, equipped with a 500 MHz DSP (digital signal processor), is a fast and high performing power analyzer. The continuous scanning of eight channels with 20 KHz per channel enables the collection of all relevant electrical parameters (more than 800 values), minimum and maximum values, the basic power quality values such as harmonics (up to the 40th, each phase with direction recognition) and short term interruptions.
Even fast transients (> 50µs) can be identified and data saved in the 128MB memory. Using modern communication processes, the data collected can be sent to a central high-performance database which allows for further processing. The UMG 604 can be integrated into an existing building management control system or a PLC controlled environment.
Optional Peak Demand Management software (Emax) can be used in conjunction with digital I/O’s to control non-essential loads, which provides means to limit and control peak demand charges.
