Dent PowerScout PS3037 Revenue Grade Power Meter

This all-new revenue-grade power meter replaces the former PowerScout 3 plus model. Measurement capabilities include the ability to monitor voltage, current, power, energy and many other parameters.

Adapt to Any Project

The PS3037 comes in four basic configurations, choose between models with or without digital displays, customize your communications with the option of ethernet or serial. The PowerScout is capable of adapting to a variety of work environments and project types.

Featuring a broadband power supply (80-600VAC) and the capability of being paired with a variety of current transformers, including split cores that measure < 1A and RoCoils designed for measuring 4000A. Additionally, communications protocols are field-selectable, allowing users to easily toggle between Modbus or BACnet.

Quick & Easy Setup

Configuring the PS3037 for a new project is faster than ever thanks to the standard USB port. Configure by connecting the meter to a PC outfitted with the ViewPoint software. You'll be able to select a CT type, communication protocol and other parameters.

Users with more than one meter will be able to easily share configurations between meters using the ViewPoint software.

Fastest & Easiest Installation

With it's compact size the PowerScout 3037 is capable of facilitating in-panel mounting. Otherwise, you can make use of the built-in DIN rail channel, which is compatible with TS35/7 rail for quick and easy mounting near the circuit panel.

All PowerScout models are line-powered and do not require external power. The power supply can accomodate service voltages ranging from 80-600VAC (phase-to-phase). Patented PhaseCheck circuitry includes a 3 bi-color LED indicator display that confirms proper CT-to-phase placement and orientation.

Revenue Grade Performance

The PowerScout 3037 features revenue-grade ANSI C12.20-2010 qualified Class 0.2 performance. Paired with the appropriate DENT CTs, the PowerScout is ideal for high accuracy applications like demand response or tenant submetering.

Communications: Industry Standard Modbus or BACnet

Communications interface to the PowerScout 3037 can be accomplished through serial RS-485 or USB, or optional Ethernet (available on PS3037-E-N and PS3037-E-D models). The PowerScout can use either BACnet IP or MS/TP protocol or Modbus TCP or RS-485 protocol for sending commands or retrieving data.

Standard Pulse Output

Send kWh or other pulses to an external device. The pulse output is used to generate system kWh pulses for devices, such as data loggers, that can accept pulses, but do not have BACnet or Modbus capability.

PowerScout 3037 Features:

  • NEW! USB Port for Quick & Easy Setup: Simply connect the PS3037 to a PC, then use ViewPoint software to configure CT type, communication protocol, and other parameters.
  • NEW! Optional Display: The scrolling display can be used for quickly reading real-time values and performing diagnostics during setup. Without even connecting to a laptop, know that the meter is configured properly before leaving the job site.
  • NEW! Serial & Ethernet on the Same Unit. No longer be limited to choosing either Serial or Ethernet. All Ethernet units (PS3037-E-X) are equipped with both RS-485 and RJ-45 connections standard. Having both communication methods ensures maximum flexibility in the field.
  • NEW! DIN Rail Mounting: The PS3037 is compact enough to facilitate in-panel mounting. Use the angled mounting tabs to install flush on the side or back of the panel wall. Or, use the built-in DIN rail channel for quick and easy mounting near the circuit panel.
  • NEW! No Integral Voltage Leads: Voltage leads are now user-supplied. Because of this, there is no distinction between "US" and "INTERNATIONAL" PowerScout 3037 instruments. All configurations of the PS3037 can be used throughout the world (50/60Hz)
  • NEW! Lower Price: Just need Serial communications without a Display? Save 20% compared to the previous-generation PowerScout 3 Plus. PS3037s with Display and Ethernet (PS3037-E-D) are the same price as the previous PowerScout 3.
  • Revenue-Grade Performance: ANSI C12.20-2010 qualified Class 0.2
  • Over 50 measured parameters for energy measurement, monitoring and diagnostics. Monitors voltage, current, power, energy, and many other electrical parameters on single and three-phase systems.
  • Single or 3-phase energy and power meter for submetering applications
  • Choose from a full range of Split-Core or RoCoil™ Rogowski-style current transformers
  • Patented PhaseChek™ LED indicators ensure correct CT orientation during installation
  • Line-Powered
  • Equipped with industry-standard Modbus and BACnet Communications
  • Data updates occur every 0.5 second
  • ViewPoint Setup Utility software: Verify meter installation, switch between communication protocols, and check real-time values before leaving the job site. ViewPoint 4.0 or later required for the PowerScout 3037.
  • UL
  • CE Mark
  • 5-Year Warranty
