As a leader in economical and high accuracy measurement of electric energy consumption and production, Continental Control Systems is committed to delivering the most advanced power and energy equipment. As part of our effort to fulfill our mission, we are pleased to announce the new WattNode Meter Module for OEM applications.
WattNode Module for OEM Applications
The state-of-the-art WattNode Meter Module on a broad concept is for high volume OEM applications. The unique design allows for easy customizations for nearly any application or equipment type. The meter provides bi-directional energy and power readings using RS-485 port with BACnet MS/TP or Modbus RTU communications.
The revenue-grade accuracy is obtainable via the CCS Accu-CT family of current transformers or the meter module utilizes any externally mounted or PCB mounted 0.333 VAC current transformer. We have released the modules in both single and multiple phases. The meter is powered externally from the OEM’s power supply, 3.3 to 24 volts AC/DC
The new WattNode Module is ideal for energy and power measurements that are utilized with:
- Photovoltaic inverters
- HVAC and refrigeration equipment
- Communication gateways
- Building automation systems
- Date center control modules
- Communication towers
- Charging stations
- Marine and RV monitors
