The Shark100-S directly interfaces with most building management systems. Communication cab abilities include RS485, RJ45 Ethernet, or IEEE 802.11 WiFi which make the Shark100-S an easy and economical solution for many applications including:
Electro Industries introduces one of the most advanced electrical submeters. This high performance product is designed to measure revenue grade electrical energy usage and communicate back that information using modern communication mediums. The unit supports RS485, RJ45 Ethernet or IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi Ethernet connections. This allows it to be placed anywhere within a facility and have it communicate back to central software quickly and automatically.
The unit uses standard 5 or 1 amp CTs (either split or donut). It surface mounts to any wall and is easily programmed in minutes. The unit is designed specifically to be a low cost, highly accurate submeter with advanced communication and easy installation.
This unit provides a wide range of outputs. The unit can be equipped with any of the following communication mediums.
IrDA Port for PDA Read
Using the infrared port, the Shark100-S can view and capture data using either a laptop or a pocket PC based PDA.
Standard RS485 Communication
Standard communication includes an RS485 output speaking Modbus protocol. This allows the units to be connected to any serial RS485 bus using the Modbus interface. The unit will communicate easily with most building automation or other software systems.
Wi-Fi or Land Based Ethernet
The unit has an option to connect a WiFi or RJ45 connection. This allows the Shark100-
S to be used on standard WIFI base stations. The unit is assigned an IP address and it communicates Modbus protocol over Ethernet TCP / I P.
In applications in which a pulse is needed, the unit also provides a KYZ output which pulses proportional to the amount of energy consumed. This is used for pulse counting applications or for building management systems where serial or Ethernet protocol is not available.
Benefits of Wireless Ethernet over Dedicated 900 MHz Spread Spectrum
This unit is designed to harness the latest technology by providing a simple, over the counter wireless architecture that is easy to integrate and is reliable. This unit uniquely can be used over any existing wireless or wired Ethernet infrastructure. Just install the unit, plug in the IP address for each unit and the device is automatically on your LAN wirelessly. Simply extend the network by adding WIFI access points.
