The ELITEpro XC 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 XC uses direct connections to each phase of the voltage and various interchangeable CT options such as split-core current transformers or flexible 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 displacement power factor, are captured in addition to energy and demand values.
The ELITEpro XC's flexibility, size, and ease-of-use make it the ideal tool for gathering detailed consumption information in commercial, industrial, government and retail environments.
New to the ELITEpro XC are 4 analog input channels which can be configured for voltage or current input used in any combination among channels. Analog inputs are especially helpful when used in conjunction with power measurements to correlate the consumption of electricity with environmental, HVAC plant performance, or other process conditions. Typical uses might include logging ambient temperature, building temperatures, solar insolation, tank pressures, duct flows, etc. Obtain this valuable data using just one meter: the ELITEpro XC.
PhaseChek lights verify that that the CTs are correctly installed - green is good, red means that either a CT is incorrectly installed or that a CT is in the wrong orientation.

Connect directly to the ELITEpro XC via the included A-to-B USB cable.
Connect remotely to the logger via 10/100MB Ethernet using DHCP or static IP to manually or automatically download data or reconfigure
The 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. Alternatively, configure the ELITEpro XC 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 are 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
Save time and meet safety requirements by communicating with an ELITEpro XC without removing the electrical panel door. In addition to the standard USB and Ethernet ports, ELITEpro XC 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 XC over short distances (10-100 feet typical) to send setup tables or download data. PC must support Serial Port Profile (SPP)
Choose from an interchangeable selection of CT options including split-core, clamp-on, hinged and flexible RoCoil™ types. The ELITEpro XC comes with an embedded Rogowski coil CT amplifier/integrator circuit so there is no need to provide external power when using our line of flexible RoCoil™ 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 XC can monitor up to four single-phase loads, two three-phase (3-wire) Delta loads or one three-phase (4-wire) WYE load.
ELOG software is used to program the meter, display metered values, and retrieve and analyze the collected data.
ELOG graphically displays recorded data, performs analysis, and facilitates automatic remote data collection. Data is also easily exported to popular spreadsheet and database programs for additional analysis.
You are provided with an unlimited site license to the software with purchase.
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 XC will meet the stringent requirements of remote data logging.
The ELITEpro XC is powered directly from the phases of the service being measured. It incorporates a broadband power supply which operates on virtually any 80-600V phase-tophase 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.
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 XC has 16MB of internal non-volatile memory, which allows for long-term logging sessions. For example, the ELITEpro XC can record a WYE setup with all available system measurements using a 2 minute integration interval for over 160 days!
The ELITEpro XC 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.
Regardless of the user-selectable recording interval, the ELITEpro XC 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). This fast sampling rate allows for real-time display of voltage, current waveforms, and harmonics. The channel sampling rate is 8 Hz or every 125 mSec.
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 XC 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, water-tight connectors for both the current leads and the power and communication cables. This option for the ELITEpro XC will meet the stringent requirements of remote data logging.
One question that we're frequently asked is this: "What happens to my ELITEpro XC during a power outage?"
The ELITEpro XC has 16 MB of non-volatile memory. It's a line-powered device, which means that it's powered by the L1 to L2 voltage under measurement.
During a power outage, the meter ceases to be energized because it's powered by the voltage in the panel under measurement. Although the logger stops recording, the built-in memory means the logger maintains all its records and settings. Once power is restored, the meter will continue to record.
There is a feature in ELOG software to help with this scenario called "Fill Missing Records." This feature detects gaps in the time sequence of the data and fills the missing records with 0 values. This feature is useful any time there are gaps in the time stamp records.

What happens if your ELITEpro XC is on a local area network at a remote project site, but you're hundreds of miles away, at your office, and need to download data off the meter? Port Forwarding makes it possible to complete the download and, with a little planning, you probably already have everything you need to successfully download your data.
Port forwarding is a name given to the combined technique of:
Port forwarding allows remote computers (for example, computers on the Internet) to connect to a specific computer or service within a private local area network (LAN). In the case of the ELITEpro XC (or ELITEpro SP) with Ethernet, port forwarding allows remote connection between the ELITEpro XC and a computer on another network through the firewall via ELOG software.
For instance, if the ELITEpro XC is on the local area network at a remote project site, but you wish to download data off the meter from the office, you can remotely access the ELITEpro XC from any computer with an Internet connection through ELOG.
Prior to beginning, confirm the following information:
Note: The ELITEpro XC itself does not need to be configured for Port Forwarding. All the configuration takes place on the router.
Each router manufacturer uses slightly different software. Check your router's documentation for specific directions on how to port forward with your router's software. Regardless of what software is on your router, you'll be required to enter the same general information.
