The smart way to monitor energy

Leading manufacturer and distributor of field control devices, Sontay has introduced a new smart power and energy meter. Designed with the user in mind, the SC-PM-E23C5 is a simple to use, easy to install and flexible meter, which will help deliver improved energy monitoring to commercial buildings.

The new Smart Energy Meter allows building owners and operators to conduct energy monitoring and sub metering in both new and existing commercial buildings. Its universal inputs allow utilisation of existing Sontay Current Transformers (PM-CT range) as well as the new low profile Rogowski Rope Transducer PM-CTR-UO18 up to 5000A. For easy integration, the energy data gets transmitted either via the Modbus RTU or BACnet MS/TP protocol.

“Energy efficiency is such an important issue in commercial buildings,” comments Sandy Damm, Managing Director at Sontay. “Providing effective energy management, the Smart Power and Energy Meter will also provide useful information for cost allocation for building owners and tenants within a building. Using the Modbus and BACnet protocols ensure this new meter can communicate seamlessly with the majority of Building Managements Systems (BMS). We are delighted to be introducing this product and are sure it will help our customers with their metering requirements.”

The meter’s small form factor enables installation in existing panels with limited space and does not require external mounting of the expense of extra enclosures or conduit runs, making the whole installation process a quick and simple task. Sontay has ensured commissioning is easy as possible with auto-detection of the baud rate, parity and protocol type as well as making the meter simple to operate for users. Offering unidirectional or bidirectional energy measurements, the Smart Meter is compatible with current transformers from 5-5000A and flexible configurations.
