The E5x can be installed on standard DIN rail or surface
mounted as needed. The Modbus, LON, and BACnet output models offer
added flexibility for system integration. The data logging capability (E5xC3
and E5xx5) protects data in the event of a communications or power failure
elsewhere in the system. Combinations of serial communication, pulse
output, and phase alarms are provided to suit a wide variety of applications.
Additional pulse inputs on E5xHx and E50Fx provide an easy way to
incorporate simple flow sensors to track gas, water, steam, or other energy
forms using a BACnet or LON system.
The E51 models add a bi-directional monitoring feature designed
expressly for renewable energy applications, allowing measurement of
power imported from the utility grid as well as power exported from
the renewable energy source (e.g. solar panels). In this way, a facility
administrator can track all energy data, ensuring accuracy in billing and
crediting. They are also useful for monitoring loads that use regenerative
