VICTORIA, BC, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ – Power Measurement, a leading provider of enterprise energy management systems, and its Swiss distributor Herren Electronics have been selected to supply ION(R) intelligent metering and control devices to AEW ENERGIE AG (AEW) in Switzerland. Power Measurement will supply the utility with an order of ION 7600(TM) meters to monitor the distribution grid in the canton of Aargau. According to Christian Bachmann, AEW Project Manager, AEW selected the ION meters because they met several key requirements of the project: compliance with the EN50160 international power quality standard, flexible communications features, and expanded analysis tools.

“The ION system will allow us to monitor compliance to the EN50160 standard across a distributed system of meters,” said Bachmann. “The ability to verify that our power quality meets the standard helps us to fulfil customer expectations, plus the meters’ communications and analysis features are useful tools for internal evaluation.”

The ION 7600(TM) meters offer a versatile mix of communications alternatives including internal modem and Ethernet ports, and provide detailed power quality reports. The meters can measure power quality in accordance to a number of international power quality standards, with flexible thresholds and corresponding alarm and control capabilities.
