New VPLog-i-R: Current Transducer with Modbus Interface

New VPLog-i-R: Current Transducer with Modbus Interface

VPInstruments, manufacturer and worldwide supplier of measurement and monitoring equipment for compressed air and gas, now offers the proven VPLog-i current sensor in a new version with Modbus interface. The VPLog-i-R is the only Rogowski type current sensor with RS485 (Modbus RTU) output.

You can now connect multiple VPLog-i-R sensors with other Modbus RTU devices to a PLC or smart data logger, for simultaneous data recording and analysis over a single modbus cable. Or connect the VPLog-i-R directly to your building/energy management system for permanent energy monitoring.

The VPLog-i is the perfect device for mobile current measurements of e.g. compressors, vacuum pumps, driers, or any other electric equipment within your plant. Installation is very easy and takes you less than a minute; just wrap around one of the three-phase power cables and close the snap fitting. Moreover, due to the digital signal processing and extremely large measurement range of the VPLog-i-R, 100 to 1600 A RMS, you just need one size for all your measurement applications.

Highlights VPLog-i-R current sensor:
> Very easy and quick installation
> For short-term and permanent measurements
> Large measurement range: 100 – 1600 A-rms
> Output: RS485 (Modbus RTU)
> LED for feedback on Modbus communication

Application examples:
> Power consumption of large consumers (i.e. compressors, dryers, pumps, water chillers)
> Submetering
> Cost allocation
> Baseline condition monitoring
> Energy management
> Efficiency calculations (i.e. compressor electrical usage vs output)
