Simple meter and power analyser, 0.5S sub-meter, optional color graphic display, input, output and communication options, DIN rail mounted, 6 modules

PA 144 is designed for simple monitoring of energy consumption and actual other quantities without the data logging feature (see SMC instruments for recording features). The DIN rail display-less design with multiple communication options is suitable for a wide spectrum of remote automation tasks in modern buildings, supervision of the infrastructure and load management. Absence of local panel controls (display and keyboard) limits possibilities for hostile user interaction.

PA instruments are an ideal and cost-optimized monitor for any modern SCADA system with embedded support for many protocols over serial line as well as Ethernet. It is also natively supported by our free ENVIS application. Its input and output set can be extended with additional IO modules for advanced control functionality.
