Dent Instruments ELITEpro SP Recording Power Meter
A DEPENDABLE AND VERSATILE TOOL TO MEASURE YOUR ENERGY USAGE
The ELITEpro SP is a complete solution for pinpointing electric usage and quantifying energy usage. It is capable of measuring, storing, and analyzing electrical consumption data which is derived from the voltage and current inputs. The ELITEpro SP uses direct connections to each phase of the voltage and various interchangeable CT options such as split-core current transformers or fl exible RoCoils™ (for large loads or large cables and bussbars) to monitor current on each phase.
These meters can capture kWh/kW energy and demand data as well as virtually all relevant energy parameters for diagnostics and monitoring on three-phase or single-phase circuit installations. Electrical load diagnostic parameters such as power factor (both Apparent and Displacement) are captured in addition to energy and demand values.
The ELITEpro SP fl exibility, size, and ease-of-use make them ideal tools for gathering detailed consumption information in commercial, industrial, government and retail environments.
NEW COMMUNICATION FEATURES:
STANDARD USB AND ETHERNET CONNECTIONS
Every ELITEpro SP includes a USB and Ethernet (RJ-45) port. Connect directly to the ELITEpro SP via the included A-to-B USB cable. Or, have the ELITEpro SP on your local area network for convenient remote data download. Supports 10/100 MB Ethernet over Cat 5 or better and can be confi gured for DHCP or static IP. Schedule automatic data downloads from the logger using AutoPoll software (included with ELOG). Reconfi gure the ELITEpro SP for a new project without leaving your workstation.
OPTIONAL BLUETOOTH® WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY
Save time and meet safety requirements by communicating with an ELITEpro SP without removing the electrical panel door. In addition to the standard USB and Ethernet ports, ELITEpro SP instruments may be equipped with an optional Bluetooth® wireless technology interface, which will allow a PC with a Bluetooth® wireless technology adapter running ELOG to connect to the ELITEpro SP over short distances (10-100 feet typical) to send setup tables or download data. PC must support Serial Port Profi le (SPP).
OPTIONAL WI-FI INTERFACE
Need a meter on your local area network but do not have a network connection near by? The ELITEpro SP’s optional Wi-Fi interface allows the meter to be connected to a wi-fi network and accessed from any PC on the network using ELOG software. Or, confi gure the ELITEpro SP as its own wi-fi hotspot and view real-time data using a wi-fi enabled PC, tablet, or smart phone via a web browser from up to 300 ft away. Two antenna options available: internal antenna (75-300 ft) or external 3 dbi antenna (150-300 ft). Use ELOG to switch between WiFi and QuickView™ access point mode.
Anatomy of ELITEpro SP
FIELD-PROVEN: RUGGED & COMPACT
Measuring in at only 21.6 x 6.3 x 4.7 cm (8.5” x 2.5” x 1.9”) and weighing 340 grams (12 ounces), the ELITEpro SP was designed to fit inside panels for safety and convenience. Its rugged plastic housing is even supplied with magnets on the housing to facilitate mounting.
Our optional NEMA 4 rated weathertight drop-in enclosure delivers stronger environmental integrity, separate voltage plugs, watertight connectors for both the current leads and the power and communication cables. This option for the ELITEpro SP will meet the stringent requirements of remote data logging.
LINE POWERED WITH REDUCED IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT
The ELITEpro SP is powered directly from the phases of the service being measured. It incorporates a broadband power supply which operates on virtually any 80-600V service. You will not have to worry about constantly changing or recharging batteries, nor finding an external power source at the job site. And you will avoid the negative environmental impact of disposing of batteries containing rare earth materials that are difficult to recycle or reclaim.
MEMORY FOR EXTENDED RECORDING
Measurements are stored in on-board memory at recording intervals selected by the user, which can be as short as one second or as long as once every 24 hours. The ELITEpro SP has 8MB of internal non-volatile memory, which allows for long-term logging sessions. For example, with a WYE setup and recording all available system measurements ON with 2 minute integration interval, the ELITEpro SP can log for over 80 days!
BI-DIRECTIONAL METERING FOR RENEWABLES STUDIES
The ELITEpro SP design delivers bi-directional metering, which is capable of monitoring power generated by a renewable energy source versus power imported from the grid—ideal for solar power measurements.
FAST SAMPLING RATE CAPTURES POWER QUALITY DATA
Regardless of the user-selectable recording interval, the ELITEpro SP has a waveform sampling frequency of 12 kHz. This is the number of data points the logger samples on each AC waveform (200 points per cycle at 60 Hz; 240 points per cycle at 50 Hz). The channel sampling rate is 8 Hz or every 125 mSec. This fast sampling rate allows for real-time display of voltage and current waveforms and harmonics.
WIDE SELECTION OF CTS
The ELITEpro SP uses various interchangeable CT options such as split-core, clamp-on, or flexible RoCoil™ current transformers. With the ELITEpro SP comes embedded Rogowski coil CT amplifier/integrator circuitry—no need to provide external power to the CTs.
All DENT CTs are internally shunted for intrinsically safe operation on energized conductors. Special high-accuracy CTs are available for existing CT secondary monitoring. The ELITEpro SP can monitor up to four single-phase loads, two three-phase (3-wire) Delta loads or one three-phase (4-wire) WYE load.Scroll down to view optional accessories you can get with your ELITEpro SP.
