Electro Industries’ Nexus® 1450 meter is a powerful, next generation power meter that provides high accuracy electrical energy measurements and offers advanced capabilities for power quality analysis and determining electrical power reliability. The meter is a transducer base with a separate display. The transducer base is a direct retrofit upgrade to existing Electro Industries’ Nexus® 1250 and 1252 meters. The Nexus® 1450 meter is also ideal for existing switchboard panels, since it can be installed without cutting panel doors. The separate display mounts into existing analog meter knockouts.
The Nexus® 1450 meter is protected with a Multi-level Cyber Secure Encrypted Configuration. Highly secure encrypted passwords and 10 user IDs and passwords help prevent tampering and hacking of your power system data. Physical seals and lock-outs provide additional protection against interfering with the meter.
The built in WebView™ Energy Dashboard on the Nexus 1450 allows you to analyze metering data without needing software. View real time data, analyze stored history logs, and view alarms and waveform records. You can navigate easily through multiple webpage views and get detailed information on energy usage and power quality.With 6 simultaneously operating communication ports, the meter acts as a communication hub to multiple software systems. The Nexus® 1450 meter is equipped with 4 serial ports capable of speaking Modbus and DNP 3.0 protocols. It also has two independent, standard Ethernet ports, consisting of a 10/100BaseT copper RJ45 connector and an ST Terminated 100Base Fiber Optic Ethernet port. Each Ethernet port has a unique IP address. Through the meter’s 6 ports, a user is able to communicate to multiple computer-based systems, providing data to entities throughout an enterprise.
The meter also excels at measuring power quality, including waveform recording and IEC 61000-4-7, IEC 61000-4-15, and IEC 61000-4-30 Class A compliance. The Nexus® 1450 meter lets you look at the reliability of the electrical power circuit to determine causes of faults, voltage surges and sags, and harmonics.
