The Dent Instruments PS3037-E-D PowerScout is an all-new revenue-grade power meter from DENT Instruments which replaces the PowerScout 3 Plus. PowerScout Meters monitor voltage, current, power, energy, and many other electrical parameters on single and three-phase systems.
The PowerScout 3037 is equipped with several new features, including:
- USB Port for quick and easy setup
- Optional Display
- Serial & Ethernet available in the same unit
- DIN Rail mounting option
- No integral voltage leads
- Lower Price
See below for details on new and standard features on the PowerScout 3037.
Adapt to Any Project
The PowerScout 3037 comes in four basic configurations, depending on whether a display or Ethernet port are desired. Instead of having one specific meter for a single job, the PowerScout 3037 can adapt to nearly any project requirement.
All PowerScout 3037 models have a broadband power supply (80-600VAC) and can be paired with a variety of current transformers, from split cores that measure < 1A up to large RoCoils designed for measuring 4000A. In addition, communication protocols are field-selectable. Easily toggle between Modbus or BACnet using ViewPoint software.
Quick & Easy Setup
Configuring the PowerScout 3037 for a new project is faster than ever before, thanks to the standard USB port. To configure, simply connect the meter to a PC using a USB cable, then use ViewPoint software to select CT type, communication protocol, and other parameters. The meter is powered by the USB port while connected to a PC. Have several meters that require the same configuration? Save your setup table in ViewPoint and use it over and over.
Fastest & Easiest Installation
The PowerScout 3037 is compact enough to facilitate in-panel mounting. Or, use the built-in DIN rail channel, which is compatible with TS35/7 rail for quick and easy mounting near the circuit panel.
All PowerScout instruments are line-powered and no not require external power. Its power supply can accommodate service voltages ranging from 80-600VAC (phase-to-phase). DENT’s patented PhaseChek™ circuitry includes a 3 bi-color LED indicator display that confirms proper CT-to-phase placement and orientation.
The PowerScout 3037 features revenue-grade ANSI C12.20-2010 qualified Class 0.2 performance. Paired with the appropriate DENT CTs, the PowerScout 3037 is ideal for high-accuracy applications like demand response or tenant submetering.
Communications: Industry-Standard Modbus or BACnet
Communications interface to the PowerScout 3037 can be accomplished through serial RS-485 or USB, or optional Ethernet. The PowerScout can use either BACnet IP or MS/TP protocol or Modbus TCP or RS-485 protocol for sending commands or retrieving data.
Standard Pulse Output
Send kWh or other pulses to an external device. The pulse output is used to generate system kWh pulses for devices, such as data loggers, that can accept pulses, but do not have BACnet or Modbus capability.
