WattNode Plus for LonWorks

The WattNode Plus is a kilowatt-hour (kWh) energy and power meter that communicates on a LonWorks network and measures 1, 2, or 3 phases with voltages from 120 to 600 Vac and currents from 5 to 6,000 amps in delta (line-to-line) and wye (line-to-neutral) configurations. For built-in data logging, see the WattNode Logger for LonWorks.

Measurements

  • Net Real Energy: kilowatt-hours – kWh (Phase A, B, C, sum of all phases)
  • Positive Real Energy: kilowatt-hours (sum of all phases)
  • Bidirectional Real Power: Watts (Phase A, B, C, and sum of all phases)
  • Reactive Power: VARs (Phase A, B, C, and sum of all phases)
  • Power Factor: PF (Phase A, B, C, all phases)
  • Reactive Energy: kVAR-hours (All Phases)
  • AC Frequency
  • RMS Voltage: (Phase A, B, C)
  • Computed RMS Current: (Phase A, B, C)
  • Demand
  • Peak Demand

Features

  • Supports LonWorks TP/FT-10 free topology twisted-pair network using Echelon’s® LonTalk® (ANSI/CEA-709.1-B-2002) network protocol.
  • LonMark 3.4 Certified
  • Small form factor for easy installation inside most electrical panels, see a sample installation diagram.
  • Pluggable screw terminals for easy wiring
  • 0.5% nominal accuracy (see manual for details)
  • True RMS power even with leading or lagging power factor and chopped or distorted waveforms
