Electro Industries/GaugeTech (EIG) announces that its Nexus 1450 cyber secure power quality meter’s version 5.0001 firmware now includes distributed fault recording using the meter’s internal IEC 61850 protocol server.
The system works by triggering a waveform capture on up to 16 meters when a breaker operation occurs on the primary meter. This is designed for fault analysis and protective scheme optimization.
Additional new features include direct access to internal COMTRADE waveform files using a RESTful API. This is ideal for integration into advanced fault analysis software.
These new features join the Nexus 1450 meter’s other advanced capabilities, including 0.06% accuracy in energy metrology for critical metering applications; multiport communication with up to six communication ports, including dual, separately addressable Ethernet ports; email on alarm and advanced web server with real time waveform viewing; and a Core log of 172 parameters that automatically trends data without user intervention.
