The power analyzer and transducer S6XM300A1000VM measures and monitors all essential parameters of an electric drive completely contactless. Important values such as Power Factor (Cosφ), Frequency, Vpeak, Ipeak, THD (Total Harmonics Distortion), Real-, Reactive-, and Active-Power can be sent to any kind of controllers or PLC via the integrated ModBusRTU / RS485 interface. The transducer can be used with brushless DC motors as well.
Receiving all of the parameters mentioned above can easily give an overview of the characteristics of drives for pumps, shredders, agitators or screening machines. Critical conditions like cavitation, running dry, over load or a broken v-belt can be detected to prevent damage to equipment.
Modern transducers have to be integrated into existing energy circuits in a sustainable and almost contactless way nowadays. Instead of a simple measuring device for line or energy, the requirement these days is for such digital devices to derive measurement data from a measuring circuit and to send them to control units or SCADA systems for evaluation.
