10 Milltown Ct.
SATEC's Branch Feeder Monitor™ BFM136 is the next generation energy management metering for multi-point power solutions. Ideal for both new and retrofit projects, the BFM136 automatically provides metering, demand and energy readings, logging and multi-tariff (TOU) data.
The BFM136 monitors up to 12 three phase circuits or 36 single phase circuits, or any combination of single or three phase circuits. This flexibility makes the BFM136 perfect for multi-tenant facilities such as residential projects, office buildings and shopping malls.
This compact instrument is designed to easily fit into existing panel boards or be flush mounted nearby, thus eliminating the need for expensive retrofit projects or for allocating extra space for the device.
The BFM monitors up to 36 currents via external Current Transformers (CTs). Each CT measures and reports the current consumed by each of the branch circuits at the panel board. For billing purposes, single or multiple circuits can be defined for each customer. This flexibility allows a simple reassignment of circuit groups without wiring changes, and allows for easy changes when tenants move in and out. Main panel board or load center installation makes for a valuable saving of both time and money.
The BFM’s user-defined and easily configured alarm system enables users to take predictive maintenance action in order to avoid unnecessary outages.
The BFM's multi channel monitoring capabilities are increased even further by connecting the meter to one or more of SATEC's eXpertpower™ services.
In many automated systems energy metering is required in addition to basic electrical parameter monitoring. Automated energy sub-metering is needed for understanding the energy consumption profile, for energy saving plans, precise energy balance, equipment monitoring and predictive maintenance, etc. Energy submetering data allows considerable cost reduction by controlling energy consumption and maximal demand. SATEC devices fit all energy sub-metering requirements, spanning from basic to the most advanced. SATEC's eXpertpower™ Billing service completes the sub-metering package. Our online billing service provides an infrastructure that supports a multitude of billing requirements: General tariffs, Time of Use, Demand charges and various additional costs. Additionally, eXpertpower™ Billing offers complimentary calculation of central air-conditioning costs, water metering and gas measurements. Thus, providing a one stop shop for all your utility billing requirements.
As any other product, electric power is characterized by quality. Power quality analysis is rewarding for electric utilities since it enables continuous monitoring, early excursion detection, root cause analysis, and timely corrective actions improving overall grid reliability. Power quality is also of interest for major energy consumers to minimize amount of power quality events and avoid expensive equipment failures. Therefore, mutual interest of energy suppliers & energy consumers in power quality motivates use of high performance power quality analyzers and recorders for dispute resolutions.
SATEC devices provide high performance power quality monitoring with built-in EN50160 or IEEE1159 monitoring, statistics and reports. eXpertpower™ Pro, SATEC's online solution for full system Power Quality Analysis, provides direct access and a robust tool set for logging and analyzing Power Quality events.
Our state of the art power quality analyzers PM175 and PM174 provide power quality analysis according to EN50160 and IEEE1159 correspondingly, including built-in statistics and reports. These devices provide all power quality parameters required by international standards including harmonics & inter-harmonics (IEC 61000-4-7), dips/over-voltages (sags/swells), interruptions, flicker (IEC 61000-4-15), etc.
