B&R Industrial Automation: Energy measurement module

B&R’s X20AP energy measurement module measures and evaluates the voltage, current, frequencies, and reactive components on all phases of power actually being consumed by a machine, and can be used to identify the condition of that machine.

Current and voltage measurements up to the 31st harmonic elevate the module to the highest level of precision while its extreme sensitivity and fourth channel make it suited for measuring leakage currents on the neutral line.

By preprocessing signals and providing measurements together with calculated effective performance values as sets of digital variables, this newest member of the compact B&R X20 family takes some of the load off the CPU. Measurement value curves recorded by the module can help in many ways, such as providing the basis for optimizing traverse paths within a machine, in turn contributing to further energy efficiency.

Three variants of this B&R energy measurement module for connecting 20 mA, 1 A and 5 A transformers are available.
