EPM 7000P

Versatile Power Quality Metering with Logging and Flexible Communications

The Multilin™ EPM 7000P is a versatile power quality meter offering that can be used for a wide range of high accuracy revenue and power quality applications for both Utility and Industrial customers.

Along with high accuracy and logging capabilities, the EPM 7000P provides flexible and customizable optional input/output (I/O) configurations (relay, status, and analog output) along with a variety of communication options (Modbus, Level 2 DNP3, GE EGD and IEC 61850) as well as a web server for easy system integration and communications. The EPM 7000P provides users with logging of accurate power quality and event information; and limit alarm triggers; allowing users to analyze historical trends and perform post fault investigations.

The EPM 7000P is also an enhanced, direct retrofit upgrade replacement for the EPM 7000 and is also available in a transducer version without display (EPM 7000PT).

Extensive Communications and I/O Cards

The EPM 7000P provides two universal option slots for communications and/or I/O. The unit can be easily configured to accept new I/O cards even after installation by auto-detecting installed I/O option cards. Up to 2 cards of can be used for communications and or I/O per meter providing a range of integration possibilities.  

Along with I/O expandability the EPM 7000P can integrate with many different systems, using multiple standardized protocols such as Modbus RTU/ASCII/TCP, Level 2 DNP3 and IEC 61850.  Expandable communications cards allows customization for system requirements at time of purchase as well as in the future if requirements change.
