Quasar are pleased to announce that the two latest ION meters from Schneider Electric have now gained certification to be used within New Zealand in revenue metering installations.
The PM8000 series is an intermediate Power Quality & Revenue meter ideal for building incomers, critical feeders or anywhere that the power of ION technology is desired.
It's companion for the utility market is the ION7400 series, based on the same platform, and with additional features making it ideal for substation feeder or distribution transformer installations.
Both of these meters now are certified against EIPC 2010 COP 10.4 and approved for use metering and recording of electrical revenue data.
The new ION8650 advanced revenue & power quality meter was recently awarded ‘Electricity Industry Participation Code 2010, Schedule 10.1, Code of Practice 10.4’ compliance with this certification, these meters are now ready to be sold into Revenue compliant installations within New Zealand.
Used to monitor electric energy provider networks, service entrances and substations, PowerLogic ION8650 meters are ideal for independent power producers and co-generation applications that need to accurately measure energy bidirectionally in both generation and stand-by modes. These meters give utilities the tools to manage complex energy supply contracts that include commitments to power quality. Integrate them with our ION Enterprise™ operations software or other energy management and SCADA systems through multiple communication channels and protocols, including our PrimeRead MDM solutions as well as Itron MV-90 and Stark RT.
Quasar Systems NZ’s leading supplier and integrator of revenue and power quality meters and metering systems to local power generators and distributors has recently been awarded a contract by Transpower New Zealand for the supply of revenue meters following an extensive evaluation programme.
Transpower has approximately 450 legacy revenue meters installed at some 152 substations throughout New Zealand. When purchased in the early 1990’s the meters were ‘state of the art’ technology but are now nearing the end of their physical life.
Contact Energy is a large, dynamic company playing a pivotal role in New Zealand’s energy sector. Generating between 25 and 30 percent of New Zealand’s electricity, the Company recently celebrated the completion of their Generation Meters Project by Quasar Systems.
The works and services undertaken for this contract relate to the replacement of obsolete metering and data recorder hardware with modern technologies, and the supply of a metering system suitable for delivering generation metering data to external metering data collection and other business applications.
