DENT Instruments PowerScout™ 24

Product Description

Maximum Flexibility for High-Density Monitoring

The PowerScout 24 is a versatile, multi-channel instrument. The modular design allows it to be configured for monitoring multiple electrical circuits (sharing a common voltage source) or for current-only monitoring of branch circuits. It can be supplied with virtually any combination of DENT’s internally-shunted split-core or RoCoil CTs. Monitor any combination of up to 8 three-phase or 24 single-phase electrical devices with the PowerScout 24.

With data updates every 1 second and ANSI C12.20- 2010 Class 0.5 revenue grade accuracy (depending on CT), the PowerScout 24 is well-suited for data center monitoring, tenant sub-metering, and for accountability metering in commercial, retail, and industrial facilities.

Communications: Industry-Standard Modbus or BACnet

Similar to the PowerScout 3037, the PowerScout 24 allows for communication over either BACnet or Modbus protocol via a serial or Ethernet connection. Ethernet communications are via either BACnet IP or Modbus TCP. Modbus registers and BACnet objects remain the same between Ethernet and Serial PowerScout 24 meters.

Fool-Proof Installation

The PowerScout series instruments are line powered and do not require external power. Its power supply can accommodate service voltages ranging from 80- 600V (phase-to-phase). DENT’s patented PhaseChek™ circuitry includes a 3 LED indicator display that confirms proper CT-to-phase installation.

  • Pulse Output
    The PowerScout 24 features 8 digital outputs – one per meter element. Use these digital outputs to send kWh or other pulses to a pulse counting device, such as a datalogger.
  • Pulse Input
    The PowerScout 24 has two digital input ports which are used to count, accumulate, and scale pulses received from non-DENT external pulse initiating meters such as gas, water, or other electrical meters.
  • Power Out
    In addition, the PowerScout 24 has a 5VDC, 200mA power out to power other devices such as a radio or gateway device.
