GE Launches a New High Accuracy Power and Energy Meter for the Building Automation Industry
MARKHAM, ONTARIO—— GE (NYSE: GE) announces the release of the Multilin™ EPM 6010, a high accuracy, revenue-class power meter that can communicate using both the BACnet/IP and Modbus TCP protocols.
The BACnet protocol is used today in building automation projects to integrate HVAC, lighting, elevators and other devices to building management systems to better control energy usage and costs. The EPM 6010 provides accurate and timely energy use data allowing the automation system to better respond to changes in demand. The Multilin EPM 6010 gives building management systems access to an impressive 40 predefined BACnet objects, which allows the meter to seamlessly integrate into the automation system. In addition to BACnet, the meter’s Web interface allows users to track energy usage remotely with a standard browser, and the Modbus TCP interface permits interoperability with HMI software such as Multilin EnerVista™ Viewpoint Monitoring.
Along with its advanced communications capabilities, the EPM 6010 meter provides true RMS multifunction measurements including voltage, current, power, frequency and 0.2 percent energy accuracy in compliance with modern IEC and ANSI accuracy standards.
GE Energy has more than 20 years of experience and innovation in industrial power meters and industrial energy management solutions. The larger portfolio of GE meters, communications equipment and energy management software solutions helps customers utilize power efficiently and economically by building a fully integrated energy management solution.
