The MultiCube is a powerful and extremely cost effective, metering solution, with currently 2 model options: the 950mV with 3 meters in 1 & the 650mV with 2 meters in 1. Each meter point can monitor 1 x 3Ø load or 3 x 1Ø loads in any combination. The MultiCube range is designed to meet the requirements of both energy managers and electrical engineers and packs in market leading innovations, with Accuracy Class 0.5 standard, and Class 0.2 optional. In addition to very competitive pricing per meter point is the reduced cost of just one voltage and comms connection per MultiCube. Further savings come from the 'Plug & Play' RJ12 to RJ12 CT adaptor, included in the price, with just one to plug in for each 3Ø load or set of 3 X 1Ø loads making installation even quicker. The MultiCube also features innovative, patented, Auto CT Recognition. This avoids errors from programming the CT primaries incorrectly by automatically recognising the CT‘s primary for you; plus Auto CT Rotation - to compensate for CTs installed the wrong way round; and Auto CT Accuracy Compensation - guaranteeing the accuracy of your data. This means that you will know the combined accuracy of the MultiCube and CTs because the MultiCube can compensate for the phase angle of our CTs giving you peace of mind that your data will not contain any hidden inaccuracies. Further safeguards against error are provided by the RJ12 plugs that cannot be installed the wrong way round. This just leaves the possibility of installing the CTs on the wrong phases, and for this the MultiCubes provide a warning on their large, backlit displays so that costly returns to site can be avoided. To provide the ultimate in flexibility for installation, our comprehensive range of mV CTs and Rogowski Rope CTs can be used in any comb-nation required, on the same MultiCube, across each 3ph load or group of 1ph loads. Our unique 5A to mV converter will also allow you to connect 5A inputs with mV inputs on the same meter as well as mixing mV & Rogowski CT input amperages.We have also included a MODBUS test facility to test the MODBUS wiring is correct before leaving site. Covered by ND’s industry leading 5 year warranty, and accredited for CE, CB, UL, CUL and CTick this is the ultimate fit & forget submetering solution. The very powerful MultiCube also packs in demands and alarms as standard and fast communication options that allow up to 20 reads every second. The fast Modbus RTU feature also provides aggregated 2 in 1 meter data and optional 100mS reading updates for truly responsive remote measurement. The MultiCube is a highly accurate, energy management sub-meter that provides a powerful platform to analyse power quality with options of THD and Individual Harmonics to the 63rd, and an optional Virtual Summating or Residual Meter. The Virtual Meter provides a full set of power and energy measurements (apart from power quality) and can be configured, by the user, to provide the SUM of measured loads, thus saving the cost of an additional incomer meter; or can be configured to detect the incoming power, and subtract the other measured sub-loads, to provide a Residual Meter point for the total of all those insignificant loads which normally go unmeasured.
