EL3423

The EL3423 EtherCAT Terminal enables the measurement of relevant data for an efficient energy management system. The voltage is measured internally via direct connection of L1, L2, L3 and N. The current of the three phases L1, L2 and L3 is fed via simple current transformers. The measured energy values are available separately as generated and accepted values. In the EL3423 Terminal, the effective power and the energy consumption for each phase are calculated. In addition, an internally calculated network quality factor provides information about the quality of the monitored voltage supply. The EL3423 offers basic functionality for mains analysis and energy management.

EL3453

The EL3453 EtherCAT power measurement terminal is an advancement based on the EL3413. With up to 690 V AC, the voltage inputs are optimised for the direct monitoring of high-capacity generators, as in the wind power industry, for example. No upstream voltage transformer is required. The four current inputs are electrically isolated so that the terminal can be used in all common grounded current transformer configurations such as 2- or 3-transformer configurations with star or delta connection incl. neutral conductor current measurement. The EL3453 can be used for simple grid analysis up to the 63rd harmonics analysis. Alternatively, all readings can be combined in a power quality factor for simplified diagnostics. Like all measured terminal data, the harmonic content can be read via the process data. The EL3453 offers the “ExtendedRange” feature enabling the use of the full technical measuring range, which equals 130 % of the specified nominal measuring range.

EL3443

The EL3443 EtherCAT Terminal enables the measurement of all relevant electrical data of the supply network and carries out simple pre-evaluation. The voltage is measured via direct connection of L1, L2, L3 and N. The current of the three phases L1, L2 and L3 is fed via simple current transformers. All measured currents and voltages are available as root-mean-square values. In the EL3443 terminal, the effective power and energy consumption for each phase are calculated. The RMS values of voltage U and current I as well as the active power P, apparent power S, reactive power Q, frequency f, phase shift angle cos φ and harmonic are available. The EL3443 offers extended functionality for mains analysis and energy management.
