Bitronics Power Measurement Family Overview

Easy to Use, Hard to Beat

Bitronics-Fam

Utility-Grade Precision and Performance Backed by a Hassle-Free Ten Year Guarantee

Bitronics Power Measurement and Event Recording products set the gold standard for reliability and accuracy in electric utility substations. 50 Series SCADA meters vastly simplify and reduce configuration and wiring costs in traditional Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) applications. 70 Series Event Recorders were the first IEC 61850-compliant analytical and control Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) suitable for the advanced, high-speed measurement demands of today’s dynamic, distributed and efficient power grids. The MultiComm®, PowerPlex®, and other legacy meters set the standard for Utility-Grade Mulitfunction Metering for decades.  All currently manufactured Bitronics products are backed by an unconditional, retroactive and hassle-free 10-year guarantee.

50 Series SCADA Meters and Transducers

With universal wiring, split-core Current Transformers (CTs), and front panel or web-based configuration, Bitronics 50 Series SCADA Meters simplify ordering, configuration, integration, commissioning, and spares.  All models share a capacitive-touch front interface, bright 3-line/5-digit displays, flexible connection (Ethernet, RS-232 and RS-485) and protocol (Modbus and DNP3 over TCP/IP) options.

Simplified Configuration

  • Connect easily through a universal wiring configuration – switchable from Delta and WYE – that simplifies ordering and inventory processes. Optional individually calibrated nickel split-core CTs deliver superior long-term accuracy and faster installation.
  • Configure basic settings – IP address, CT/PT ratios, comms addresses, etc – through the capacitive touch buttons on the faceplate.
  • Customize advanced settings and special display screens by using any standard web browser. See a live example here.

70 Series Event Recording and Automation IEDs

Bitronics 70 Series Event Recorders, Automation and Control IEDs are deployed in critical power measurement, automation, recording and analysis roles in electric utility substations worldwide. The Bitronics 70 Series were the first IEC 61850-Compliant Measurement IEDs, and meet all three PRC-002 Compliant Event Recording requirements (SOE Equipment, Fault Recording, and Dynamic Disturbance Recording), in a single unit.   With 4ms RMS measurements and high-resolution event capture, they can be used to analyze network faults, verify protective relay and other substation equipment performance, test the dynamic response of the network, and store long-term trends. They can also be used to automate a substation – including supervisory control, distance to fault, sequence of events, oscillography recording, and other advanced measurements – while preserving existing investments in electromechanical relays.

Common Features

  • Real-time SCADA data to multiple masters using different protocols simultaneously, including IEC 61850.
  • Detached Displays to present data locally on mimic panels and other substation equipment.
  • High-speed Measurements and Communications suitable for synch-check and auto-synch applications for generators and bus ties.
  • Highly Configurable, Time-Synchronized Recorders with advanced triggers settings (including cross-triggering via GOOSE messaging).
