Schneider Electric: PowerLogic EM3500 Series

July 20, 2023

The EM3500 Series DIN Rail Meter combines exceptional performance and easy installation to deliver a cost-effective solution for power monitoring applications.

The EM3500 series meters can be installed on standard DIN rail or surface mounted as needed. Pulse output and phase alarms provide additional versatility. There are four unique models to fit your power monitoring needs.

The Modbus and BACnet output options offer added flexibility for system integration. The data logging capability (EM3555 and EM3560) protects data in the event of a power failure. Modbus, pulse output, and phase alarms are all provided to suit a wide variety of applications. Additional pulse inputs on EM3560 provide an easy way to incorporate simple flow sensors to track gas, water, steam, or other energy forms using a BACnet system in addition to full monitoring of electrical energy.

The EM3555 model adds a bi-directional monitoring feature designed expressly for renewable energy applications, allowing measurement of power imported from the utility grid as well as power exported from the renewable energy source (e.g. solar panels). This enables users to track all energy data to ensure accuracy in billing and crediting.
