The PowerLogic® Branch Circuit Power Meter (BCPM) is a device designed to measure the current, voltage, and energy consumption of up to 92 circuits (84 branch circuits, plus 8 auxiliary circuits) on a single board. It increases the board’s current monitoring capability by combining the functions of two boards into one device.
The BCPM consists of a Data Acquisition Board and four 21-unit current sensor strips and eight auxiliary inputs. The strips are mount ed on each side of the panel board along the termination points of each breaker. The conductor passes through the appropriate current sensor before terminating at the breaker. Each strip transmits the current data to the Data Acquisition Board.
