    Vamp Measurement and Monitoring Units

    Power quality measuring and monitoring with IEC 61850 communication

    Vamp 96, Vamp 260 and WIMO 6CP10 measurement and monitoring units

    Measurement and Monitoring
    • Features

      VAMP measuring and monitoring units offer complete analysis of consumption and power quality monitoring in generation and distribution applications. The range, including VAMP 96, VAMP 260 and WIMO 6CP10 cover a number of functions such as measuring,  calculations, transducer, alarm handling, information display and communication. The units provide a vital overview of the power system by detecting current and voltage harmonics as well as other power quantities and offer power system fault location should a fault occur. In modern society where non-linear loading in the network is increasing, power quality monitoring is becoming an increasingly important concept for power generation and distribution and VAMP measuring and monitoring units offer a complete solution for this demand.

      Standard Manufacturers Warranty: 2 years

      Benefits

      • Intelligent measurement and monitoring
        The VAMP and WIMO meters come with an extensive selection of pre-configured data and measurements that you can use or customise to fit your metering requirements.
      • Cost allocation and billing
        Determine consumed energy by production cost centres according to the EU’s Energy Service Directive (ESD) 2006/32/EC.
      • Demand and power factor control
        Avoid penalties with automated load shedding, scheduling, peak shaving or capacitor bank control.
      • Equipment monitoring and control
        Improve process yields and extend equipment life. Extensive analogue and digital I/O enables system monitoring and control.
      • Power quality and disturbance analysis
        Capturing abnormal disturbances in power quality like harmonics, voltage interruptions, voltage sags/swells and imbalance.
      • Preventative maintenance
        Set up alarms to warn of pending problems in advance.
      • Extensive communication
        Large number of supported communication protocols are included...Profibus DP, MODBUS TCP, Modbus RTU or SPA communication in industrial applications. Utility applications have supported communication including IEC 61850, IEC 60870-5-101, IEC 60870-5-103, DNP 3.0 and SPA protocols.

      Applications

      • VAMP 96: Used as a standalone device in industrial and utility applications including low and medium voltage power distribution panels. VAMP 96 has MBus protocol in order to support connectivity with the Automatic Meter Management (AMM) systems.
      • VAMP 260: Heavy duty industrial applications where the environmental and disturbance conditions are demanding. VAMP 260 can be connected to the protection core of current transformers.
      • WIMO 6CP10: Utility applications, also suitable for secondary power distribution substations.
