How to configure and install an Energy module

Install power and communication

The Energy Module needs to be installed in the same way as the Power Module. See Hardware Installation Guide.

Important Remark: The energy module CAN NOT be connected on the same bus (BUS1) as the other modules (like input module, output module etc), the energy module is connected on a separate bus (BUS2). Please connect your energy modules on BUS2 of the gateway (and NOT on BUS1 like all the other modules).

Precaution

When installing the life voltage, make sure to switch off the breaker in the fusebox. Don't connect voltages higher than 240VAC.

Installation

Installation depends on what voltage net configuration you have.

1 phase

When the net configuration is 1 phase, you need to set the 3 voltage measurements in parallel. The currentclamp needs to be placed on the life wire and can be put on 1 of the 12 currentclamp connections. So in total 12 currentmeasurements can be made. Energy install 1phase.png

3 phase WYE

When the net configuration is 3 phase WYE, connect the wires like one of the pictures underneath. The first 4 currentclamp connections can be used to measure currents from the first phase (L1). The second group of 4 currentlamp connections (5-8) can be used to measure currents from the second phase (L2). and connection 9-12 for the third phase (L3).

1 phase load

To measure a 1 phase load, clamp 1 currentclamp to the lifewire that is connected to the load. The wires of the currentclamp need to be connected to the right group. ex. If you want to measure a load which is connected between N and L2, clamp the currentclamp over L2 and connect the currentclamp to port 5,6,7 or 8 which is the corresponding group.

3 phase load

To measure a 3 phase load, you need to use 3 currentclamps clamped each over 1 of the 3 lifewires. The connection of the currentclamps to the energy module needs to be connected to the corresponding group. The 3 currentclamps together with the corresponding voltage will calculate 3 powers. The sum of those is the power of the 3 phase load. Tagging <link> can be used to do this calculation automatically in the ?portal?. 1 phase loads an 3 phase loads can be used simultaniously on one energy module as long each clamp is connected to the right group and 3 clamps are used for a 3 phase load.

3 phase Delta

When the net configuration is 3 phase delta, connect the wires like on one of the pictures underneath.

1 phase load

To measure a 1 phase load you only need 1 currentclamp.

  • If the load is connected between L1 and L2 then put the currentclamp on L1 and connect the currentclamp on group 1 (on connection 1,2,3 or 4)
  • If the load is connected between L2 and L3 then put the currentclamp on L2 and connect the currentclamp on group 2 (on connection 5,6,7 or 8)
  • If the load is connected between L3 and L1 then put the currentclamp on L3 and connect the currentclamp on group 3 (on connection 9,10,11 or 12)
