Maxchek 400 is a multifunction panel meter specially designed for controlling electrical maximum demand for commercial and industrial users. Basic and advanced levels of configuration are supported for control and alarm relays. If the predefined demand limit is exceeded, Maxchek 400 generates an alarm signal and can also disconnect non-essential loads sequentially. A large, multi-line LCD panel shows multiple parameters at the same time. Maxcheck 400 is fitted with RS-485 and Ethernet communications ports for connection to external systems.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Application

  • Electricity supply utilities allow their large consumers a sanctioned load, within which they are expected to operate.  Stiff penalties are imposed on consumers who exceed their demand limit, which can vary on certain days or at particular times. Maxchek 400 enables large electricity consumers to manage their demand effectively. It operates as a predictive maximum demand controller (MDC), providing stage-wise load disconnection and restoration to maximise the use of sanctioned load.
