Just three steps to energy measuring:
Set up the communication interface, select the power grid type, and configure the measuring input. EMpro measuring devices can be configured and integrated into the network in just three steps. The installation wizard starts up automatically when the device is switched on for the first time. Alternatively, you can set the configuration baseline directly on the device via the user-guided operating keys.

The Rogowski measuring input saves you a great deal of time when it comes to wiring and configuration. Connect any conventional Rogowski coil directly: the products process the mV signal directly. The measuring transducer that is normally used is no longer required. Configure your current input with a single click. The coil parameters are already stored on the web server.

A range of convenient web server and device functions simplifies your every-day work, such as monitoring the correct operation of the system and error analysis in the event of service and support actions. In addition to configuring the devices, you can use the web server to log data, the assess the grid quality, and display the energy flows in clear trend diagrams.
Errors and alarm statuses that occur in the system are quickly and unambiguously detected on site with a color change on the display.

Protect your energy data from unauthorized access: shutting down operating elements at the device will prevent manipulative operations on site. Deactivating the interfaces, you avoid unwanted access to your energy data or unintentional changes of the configuration.

EMpro energy measuring devices with communication logos

EMpro energy measuring devices measure your energy data and communicate it to higher-level control and management systems. In addition to interfaces for classic industrial communication, the products also have an integrated REST API.
The IoT-capable EMpro device is able to transfer its data directly and securely to the cloud using a router. Access your measurement data and component data anywhere in the world. You won’t need an IoT gateway to aggregate data, to convert between local network protocols and IoT protocols, or for encryption.

Easy networking with REST API Easy integration into local networks from any browser

In local networks, the devices can be easily accessed via the integrated REST API. REST or “Representational State Transfer” is a widely used architecture in the field of IT, which is also gradually being adopted in industrial applications. The user-friendly interface architecture uses the well-known Internet protocols. Data can be queried with just a few commands from any browser, e.g., via an HTTP GET request. You do not need long register tables or special knowledge of industrial communication protocols.

Your advantages with REST API:

  • The HTTP/REST/JSON format enables the quick and convenient development of system integration
  • Simplified data analysis with configurable requests and additional information, such as the serial number and device designation
  • Read-only concept provides added security
  • Communication interfaces such as Modbus/TCP can be used in parallel
  • Continuous expansion of the scope of functions with firmware updates
