IoT Energy Monitoring Series. Dataforth
The DIN-rail mounted enclosures have pluggable terminal blocks for phase voltage and phase current which simplifies setup and maintenance, and the small format requires little space in control cabinets. The PWRMxx modules interface to phase voltages of 85–265VAC or 85–525VAC, 50/60Hz, and are self-powered from any of the lines. Higher voltage applications can be addressed using voltage transformers (VTs) and appropriate scaling in the module.
Phase current inputs have an industry-standard range of 0VAC to 0.333VAC. An external shunt, current transformer, or Rogowski Coil is used to measure currents directly or non- contact.
BenefitsData analysis such as but not limited to measuring power quality, monitoring energy consumption, and determining machine health turn into simple operations with the modules’ many features and ease of use.

The PWRM modules measure and reports a wide range of electrical energy parameters which include, but are not limited to:
- RMS Voltages and Currents
- Phase Angles
- Line Periods
- Instantaneous Total Active Power
- Instantaneous Total Apparent Power
- Fundamental Active Power
- Power Factors
- Total Active Energy
- Fundamental Active Energy
