Information is the key
For any utility manager, landlord or anyone managing a company’s or building’s energy resources, a utility meter and the information it provides usually is not sufficient. One bill and no information of where or why the energy is wasted. Sub-metering, on the other hand, provides a far more detailed picture of the energy consumption. It helps you identify specific areas where the energy consumption is too high and essentially where investments need to be made. With a submeter you can look into the details of your energy consumption and take actions where it’s needed the most.
In the World Energy outlook for 2012 the International Energy Agency (IEA), states ”A significant share of the potential to improve energy efficiency – four fifths of the potential in the buildings sector and more than half in industry – still remains untapped.” Is your company or organization doing enough to reduce its energy consumption?
EQ meters is the new range of meters for sub-metering and energy efficiency from ABB. EQ meters come in three product series and up to five functionality levels of each series, and in single phase or three phase versions.
- The A series is a advanced meter product range for installations up to 80 A direct connected or transformer connected both for current and voltage (CT/VT)
- The B series is a basic meter product range for installations up to 65 A direct connected or transformer connected (CT).
- The C series are products, without communication, intended for stand alone energy measurement up to 40 A direct connected.
