May 19, 2011 Eaton Turns the Spotlight on Energy Metering as Product of the Month In recognition of the importance of accurate measurement as a tool for controlling and reducing energy usage, Eaton’s Electrical Sector has identified its latest metering solutions as its Product of the Month for May 2011. An introduction to the wide range of metering solutions offered by Eaton, all of which have been designed for fast convenient installation, is provided by a short video clip that can be accessed at www.poweringbusinessworldwide.tv To see the video, simply click on the Product of the Month tab.

Eaton’s metering products include meter packs that are easy to mount adjacent to distribution boards and panelboards. They provide flexible sub-metering of loads, thereby helping users not only to monitor their energy usage as an aid to improving energy efficiency, but also to meet the requirements of Part L2 of the Building Regulations. In addition, Eaton also offers popular configurations of its distribution boards as standard assemblies with integral metering facilities.

Metering systems from Eaton save time and money by eliminating the need for bespoke metering solutions that invariably inflate costs and often lead to protracted delivery times. In contrast, Eaton metering products are available off the shelf at very competitive prices via the company’s extensive network of distributors.

Further time and cost savings are made possible because the metering products are supplied with the meters, the associated wiring and, where necessary, current transformers, pre-installed in enclosures. The amount of expensive and time-consuming wiring needed on site is, therefore, reduced to an absolute minimum.

Metering products from Eaton’s Electrical Sector include distribution boards with integral metering as well as separate meter packs for use with Eaton Series G panelboards and Memshield 3 distribution boards. The range includes solutions for both single- and three-phase applications, and options include split metering so that lighting and power loads can be monitored separately.
