The PowerLogic ION9000 series has third-party certified Class 0.1S accuracy, twice the precision of existing energy standards. This can unlock significant new possibilities for energy savings and ensure the meter can comply with the highest performance for revenue grade applications says the company. 

The ION9000 is the only meter that complies with all three of the latest power quality standards: IEC61000-4-30, IEC62586-1 and IEC62586-2. The modular meter is designed for rapidly changing IoT-enabled power networks, as well as the 0.1S accuracy

he meter is cybersecurity ready, designed to align with comprehensive grid cybersecurity policies, helping to eliminate vulnerabilities to critical power assets and systems. Smart power event analysis automatically correlates related trends, events, and waveforms based on time and type of incident, saving time and providing vital insight with pre- and post-incident data.

Onboard power quality analysis provides useful information, not just data, and it does so via its onboard PQ tool, according to EN50160 and IEEE519 standards. The ION9000 also has extended waveform capture and patented disturbance direction detection (DDD).

The patented ION programmability allows users to adapt as networks become more dynamic, tailoring programming to accommodate complex electrical distribution monitoring or custom substation automation – protecting their investment into the future.

“The ION9000 is truly the power quality meter of the future. With the pace of change today, any power system that is unable to adapt to any new standards, requirements or certifications may be obsolete very soon,” noted Kelly Becker, vice president, Power Solutions Division, Schneider Electric. “The ION9000 provides this future-proof adaptability that modern power networks need. It’s a precision platform, is highly customizable, it sets a new industry benchmark for accuracy and has a complete power quality analysis tool right out of the box so it can immediately identify and help solve power system events. The ION9000 is a significant addition to the company’s EcoStruxure Power portfolio of connected products, and is a valued new platform within a connected and integrated power distribution network.”

The meter can be combined with Schneider’s EcoStruxure Power edge control software to help avoid outages, equipment damage, failures and interruption of critical operations.
