The Power Patrol works with either Rogowski Coil “flex” CTs or conventional split-core CTs. The ability to have interchangeable CTs gives added flexibility for last minute changes at the job site. The Power Patrol is embedded with the necessary amplifier/integrator circuitry for Rogowski coil CTs—eliminating the need to provide external power.
Using the Power Patrol HeadStart software, power and configure the meter through your computer’s USB port. While other meters require configuration in a live enclosure, the Power Patrol can be easily configured outside of the panel, eliminating the risk of arc flash. HeadStart can save meter settings, allowing the installer to clone meter profiles quickly and easily.
The Power Patrol series instruments are line-powered and do not require external power. Its power supply can accommodate service voltages ranging from 80-600V (phase-to-phase). The Power Patrol has 3 LED indicators (Red/Green) which confirm proper CT-to-phase installation.
Each Power Patrol comes with a field selectable Modbus or BACnet communication. Communication interface to the Power Patrol is through either an RS-485 serial connection (BACnet MS/TP / Modbus) or over Ethernet (BACnet IP/Modbus TCP).
