Dent PowerScout PS-3 and PS-18

Dent PowerScout3The DENT’s PowerScout™ Series of networked power meters are MODBUS enabled devices that allow monitoring of individual circuits or a complete electrical installation. With the ability to report up to 50 separate parameters via MODBUS, the PowerScout can be used for monitoring or diagnostic applications.

Lontek in conjunction with LabCraft have successfully built various projects using the Dent PowerScout range and the DataTaker DT80 series of data loggers. Code can be found here.

DENT’s patented PhaseChek™ circuitry includes a three LED indicator display that confirms proper CT-to-phase installation. The PowerScout™ automatically adjusts for CT orientation, greatly reducing set-up time and all but eliminating installation errors.

Key Features:

  • Over 50 measured parameters for energy measurement, monitoring and diagnostics
  • Three or Eighteen channels for multiple circuit or individual circuit monitoring
  • Single or 3-phase energy monitoring or power meter for sub metering applications
  • Large range of Split Core or Rogowski type current transformers
  • PhaseChek™ LED indicators ensure correct CT orientation during installation
  • Line-Powered; 60-600V Phase-Phase Power Supply (Use on 120/240V, 208/120V, 480/277V, or 580/335V, 380/220 volt services; 50 or 60 Hz
  • Uses an industry standard MODBUS RS485 Communications Protocol
  • Data updates occur every 500 milliseconds
