EPM 6010 Building Automation Power Meter
BACnet/IP Communications
and Energy Measurement


The Multilin EPM 6010 is an industry leading revenue grade power meter with native BACnet/IP communications. This meter is designed to integrate seamlessly into existing and new building management systems using the popular BACnet protocol. The meter allows users to gather data on voltage, current, power and energy usage throughout a facility.

This meter is available in a transducer configuration (EPM 6010T) that comes without a display and has a DIN rail mount. It’s ideal for use in retrofit applications and where budgets are a large consideration.

BACnet/IP COMMUNICATIONS

The Multilin EPM 6010 with BACnet/IP supports building energy management strategies, LEED certification and other Green Building initiatives. By allowing users to track energy use and power quality, the meters gives users the information they need to accurately identify cost -saving measures and respond to power quality problems when they arise.

  Communications Ports
The Multilin EPM 6010 provides two independent communication ports with advanced features:

IrDA port – A unique optical IrDA port allows the unit to be setup and programmed using a remote laptop without needing a communication cable. Simply point at the meter with an IrDA-equipped PC computer to configure it.

Ethernet Port – This port provides connectivity via a 10/100BaseT RJ45 connection. Modbus TCP and BACnet protocols are supported


BACnet/IP Web Interface
The Multilin EPM 6010 comes standard with a web interface. Use the BACnet/IP interface to remotely set up the BACnet/ IP configuration and track energy use with any standard web browser.

MEASUREMENTS
  Designed to be the perfect device for environmental initiatives, LEED certified projects and smart energy projects, the EPM 6010 provides superior metrology, and revenue testable 0.2% energy accuracy. The meter is in compliance with ANSI and IEC accuracy standards, has advanced DSP technology, samples at high rates, and has 24 bit A/D conversion to measure and analyze power accurately and reliably.

Measured Values
EPM 6010 measures the following values:



 
 
INSTALLATION
  Universal Voltage and Current
This meter allows voltage input measurements up to 416 Volts Line to Neutral and 721 volts Line to Line. This helps ensure proper meter safety when wiring directly to high voltage systems. The unit will perform to specification on 69 Volt, 120 Volt, 230 Volt, 277 Volt and 347 Volt power systems.

Unique Current Input Connections
EPM 6010 meter uses two current input wiring methods.

Method One - CT pass through. Directly pass the CT through the meter without any physical termination on the meter. This insures that the meter cannot be a point of failure on the CT circuit. This is preferable to utility users when sharing relay class CTs. No Burden is added to the secondary CT circuit.
Method Two - Current "Gills." The meter additionally provides ultra-rugged termination pass through bars allowing the CT leads to be terminated on the meter. This also eliminates any possible point of failure at the meter. This method is also a preferred technique for ensuring relay class CT integrity does not get compromised. No terminal blocks are required and this stud based design ensures that CTs will not open under a fault condition.


 

Through a standard Ethernet port, the EPM 6010 can easily integrate into systems using BACnet/IP or Modbus TCP.

Solid Construction with Mounting Versatility
The EPM 6010 has a rugged design for harsh environment. This is especially important in power generation, utility substation, and critical user applications. The structural and electrical design of this meter was developed based on the recommendations and approvals of many of our utility customers.

EPM 6010 can easily be mounted in a panel for generator monitoring, substation automation and more. The unique dual design combines ANSI and DIN mounting structure and allows easy installation for both new metering applications and retrofit of existing analog meters.

The unit mounts directly in an ANSI C39.1 (4" Round form) or an IEC 92 mm DIN square form.
