Energy management is one of the biggest challenges in business applications and has a huge impact on the cost of operations. To ensure optimal energy efficiency, ABB India has launched a new series of electrical measuring and power monitoring meters for the digital panel meter market which is growing at a CAGR of 6% for the period between 2017 to 2023 globally. With this introduction, ABB India offers a comprehensive portfolio in addition to the existing range of single, multifunction meters and network analysers, catering to the Panel Meter market across industries such as healthcare, hospitality, infrastructure, and F&B to name a few.
These smart solutions in metering and energy monitoring enables users to make better choices to monitor their power consumption. The meters guarantee basic to complete power quality analysis and accurately monitor the energy assets for residential, industrial, and commercial building segments. The newly introduced M1M11, M1M DS, M1M 20B and M1M 30B cover the main submetering easily and cost-effectively by powering quality monitoring requirements inside power factor correction boards, motor control centres or sub-distribution switchboards of commercial and industrial buildings.
Kiran Dutt, President-Electrification at ABB India said, “The emerging Panel meter market and our introduction of new range of meters offers a huge potential for customers to better manage energy performance across industries. Thanks to their connectivity capabilities, M1M can now leverage on the integration in ABB’s Ability™ Energy and Asset Manager cloud-computing platform to monitor, optimize, and control the complete electrical system
The complete M1M range offers the following benefits in submetering:
- Complete offer: Thanks to integrated functionalities and communication protocols, the same product version fits an increased number of projects and wide applications range
- Simple and intuitive: Makes configuration and operations simple and fast, from easy installation and wiring
- Energy Efficiency: Complete set of measurement functionalities, from multi-function meters to intermediate power meters improving energy efficiency of the electrical system
The M1M11 is a digital kWH meter for energy measurement, providing the measurement of the single-phase or three-phase energy consumption. M1M DS is a Dual Source multi-function meter for complete electrical system monitoring, providing the measurement of active energy, active power, apparent power, power factor, voltage, current, frequency, enabled by a communication device for remote monitoring. Additionally, the two new different intermediate M1M product families, M1M 20B and M1M30B, have been commonly designed to perfectly fit in a scalable way for monitoring needs, with a high focus on intuitiveness, quality, and common user experience.
