Acuvim-L Series power meters are for power metering and monitoring at electrical panels and energy consuming devices or systems. They are also great for non-revenue sub-metering applications. Measuring all the key electrical parameters, these power meters offer great value.

The Acuvim DL version features a single RS485 MODBUS communications port which allows you to use AccuEnergy's free Acuview energy monitoring and reporting software. The Acuvim DL allows you can add an optional second RS485 communications port.

The Acuvim L comes in 6 different models, allowing you to choose the features that are right for you, see the Grid below for the various models:

Acuvim L Series Power Meters Chart

Applications

  • Metering of distribution feeders, transformers, generators, capacitor banks and motors
  • Medium and low voltage systems
  • Commercial, industrial, utility
  • Power quality analysis

Measurements

All Acuvim-L power meters can be used on any single or three phase electrical system up to 600V AC. They measure volts, amps, frequency, power (apparent, active, reactive) & energy, power factor, THD and individual harmonics on both voltage and current to the 15th harmonic.

Communications

  • Acuvim AL is manual read meter only, with no remote communication options
  • Acuvim BL includes a digital pulse output for kWh or kvarh. Pulse rate and width can be set. Also comes with an Alarm output.
  • Acuvim CL includes BL capability and communications through MODBUS RTU via a built-in RS485 serial port.
  • Acuvim CL-M is a DIN Rail mount version, with all the features, but no display. This lower cost device is great if manual meter reading is not required.
  • Acuvim DL has 4 Digital Inputs, 2 Digital Outputs, 1 RS485 port with Modbus RTU protocol and Load Run Time.
  • Acuvim EL has Load Run Time (TOU) and 1 RS485 port with Modbus RTU protocol.
  • Acuvim EL-M comes with all the EL features, but no display. This lower cost device is great if manual meter reading is not required.
  • Acuvim KL is an excellent, low cost meter for basic power (kW, kVA, kVAr and Energy (kWh, kVAh, kVArh) and Load Run Time. Perfect for basic sub-metering applications.

Warranty & Approvals

Acuvim-L meters are UL/ULc approved for use throughout North America and come with a 5 Year manufacturer's warranty.
