WAGO 3-Phase power measurement module earns UL 508 certification.

WAGO Corporation’s 750-493 3-Phase Power Measurement Module (3PMM) now carries UL 508. The drop-in module eliminates stand-alone monitoring components, cost-effectively supplying UL 508A industrial control panels with energy consumption and machine health data. Part of the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM, the fieldbus-independent 750-493 also simplifies data integration into Ethernet-based energy optimization plans via FTP Technology, the company says.

The module calculates effective power and tracks energy consumption by measuring voltage and current to calculate energy consumption and power factor (cosf) at the incoming power source. Programmable via WAGO-I/O-PRO CAA software, 750-493 performs data-logging (down to a minute-by-minute basis per machine) and time-stamping. Via programming, the module can also support trending analysis via MS Excel, correlating usage data with utility prices.
