Energy meters are devices used to measure and monitor energy consumption. There are various types of energy meter which record information, such as power, frequency, voltage, current and wattage. Energy meters are usually panel mounted or DIN rail mounted, or some plug directly into a mains socket. DIN rail mounted energy meters are suitable for equipment rack mounting.
Energy consumption is an important factor for both environmental and cost reduction purposes. Integrating an energy meter into a power management system is ideal for monitoring energy efficiency.
LCD displays and analogue dials are commonly found on the front of energy meters and are used to display meter readings. These displays may also feature buttons to navigate the device and control aspects such as back lighting and language options.
