BFM-II-Full-Version-05-2016_M
SATEC’s continued advancement in metering technology introduces the next generation of a modular multi-circuit branch feeder metering for energy and load management. The BFM II has been designed with a modular format. Flexibility for either 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 54 Single-Phase circuits and/or combination of 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 18 Three-Phase circuits. Current Input Expansion-Modules can be added in the field for future circuit expansions.

In addition, the BFM II comes complete with TFT Colour Touch Screen Display. This display provides Waveform and Vector monitoring locally or remotely. Positive or Negative Electrical Flow are displayed in two colours – Red for negative power, ensuring best commissioning practices > reverse polarity CTs are avoided easily reducing errors in readings during meter validations.

Further Expansion-Module enhancements include Pulse-Input capabilities, with either ‘9 or 18 pulse Input Expansion-Modules’. This modularity now allowing multiple modules for up to ‘54 pulse inputs’ for water, gas and thermal meter monitoring. Input pulses are designed for dry contact or DC Wetted 24V, 125V or 250V DC. Use of inputs can also work with SATEC’s unique Embedded Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), for input status of other related electrical equipment.

Relay Output Control provides the Relay Expansion-Module for ‘9 output relays’ rated @ 5A, 250V AC, with maximum of 18 relay outputs. This advanced feature allows for use in ‘Remote Disconnect of consumer mains’ in billing applications in coordination with the National Smart Metering Protocol recommendations for Smart Meters. The relay outputs can also be used for Demand Response applications.

Analogue (input/output) Expansion-Module developments will provide further capabilities for monitoring and expanded functions.
Monitoring of analogue signals is possible: 4-20mA, 0-20mA, 0-1mA (100% overload), ± 1mA (100% overload), 10V.

Multiple Communication platforms are supported: RS-485, Ethernet TCP/IP, USB, Cellular (in certain regions) in addition to
Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, DNP3.0 and DNP/TCP communication protocols.

SATEC provides software solutions for electricity billing, energy management and power quality forensic analysis.
