Advantech Launches WISE-M500Series Smart Power Meters for Factories

Advantech’s Industrial Automation Group (IAG) is pleased to announce the launch of two new smart power meters for use in all kinds of electric power data acquisition. WISE-M500 series power meter are easy to use, cost effective smart meters, that provide high accuracy measurement , display and communication (Modbus/RTU). Characterized by a compact size, and flexible connection (1P2W,1P3W, 3P3W..).

The panel mounted WISE-501 is a 3-phase multi-function power meter for sub-metering applications, ranging from power distribution, small motor control to lighten load circuit. It measures 39 power parameters such as current(A), voltage(V), active power(KW), active energy(kwh), reactive energy(kvarh), and frequency values. The measurement data can be viewed directly from local large display, and also can be transmitted through an RS-485 port using the Modbus/RTU protocol.
In addition to the above features, both models support a host of features such as: the ability to monitor single and three phase circuits and use a time-of-use pricing service which adjusts the use and operation of the facility according to actual power usage and the electricity supplier tariff. In factories and buildings which use SCADA software, such as Advantech WebAccess, the WISE-M501 and WISE-M502 are able to transmit their data using the Modbus protocol and have their information viewed on remote displays.
