Electro Industries / GaugeTech (EIG) has released the Shark® 50B meter with native BACnet MS/TP serial communication. This meter supplies power and energy data to building automation systems using a native, standard BMS protocol. It is suited for retrofit into existing systems or for new applications.
The Shark® 50B meter comes pre-programmed with 34 BACnet objects for seamless integration into existing BACnet networks. It offers an affordable entree into the world of building automation. In addition to building automation, it supports LEED projects and other "green" building initiatives.
The meter also supports Modbus over TCP/IP so that the Shark® 50B meter can additionally communicate to a stand-alone energy management system or energy dashboard. This allows the meter to be used for both energy management and building automation applications simultaneously.
