The new face in multi-circuit power metering*
SATEC’s BFM-II is the next generation of Branch Feeder Monitor™, providing energy management for multiple circuits.
Flexibility for both new and retrofit projects, the BFM-II provides metering, demand and energy readings, logging and multi-tariff (TOU) data solutions.
- Modular design format
- Load profiling
- Multi-circuit energy reading
- Built-in communication platforms
- Time-of use (TOU) metering
- Real time clock (RTC)
- Data logging
- Event logging
- Input/output capabilities
The BFM-II measures any combination of single or three-phase circuits based on the modularity for current circuit inputs. The modular design, offering a selection of 18, 24, 30, 36, 42 or 54 channels, easily fits into existing panel boards or to be flush mounted nearby, thus eliminating the need for expensive retrofit projects or for allocating extra space for the device.
The BFM-II utilises High Accuracy Current Sensors (HACS), which measure and report the current consumed by each of the branch circuits at the panel board. For load management purposes, single or multiple circuits can be defined for each customer. This flexibility allows for a simple reassignment of circuit groups without wiring changes, and enables easy changes when tenants move in and out. Main panel board or load centre installation makes for a valuable saving of both time and money.
The BFM’s user-defined and easily configured alarm system enables users to take predictive maintenance action in order to avoid unnecessary outages.
Expansion modules for digital inputs from water, gas meters in addition to digital outputs provides a complete solution for energy management applications.
