Bulk energy measurement, modular multi comms options, wall mounted, long range site configurable with in-built IEC 61850 support

The Apex 150 line is a series of next generation energy meters. They have been designed for power transfer points that require precise measurements and have revenue transactions. Flexible and modular communications ensure integration with existing AMR / AMI / SCADA systems and allow for upgrades to future SAS systems. Quadrant energy measurement allows for monitoring of generation, transmission, and bulk power transfer points.
