ELITEPRO XC™ DETAILS

A DEPENDABLE AND VERSATILE TOOL TO MEASURE YOUR ENERGY USAGE

The ELITEpro XC is a complete solution for pinpointing electric usage and quantifying energy usage. It is capable of measuring, storing, and analyzing electrical consumption data which is derived from the voltage and current inputs. The ELITEpro XC uses direct connections to each phase of the voltage and various interchangeable CT options such as split-core current transformers or flexible RoCoils™ (for large loads or large cables and bussbars) to monitor current on each phase.

These meters can capture kWh/kW energy and demand data as well as virtually all relevant energy parameters for diagnostics and monitoring on three-phase or single-phase circuit installations. Electrical load diagnostic parameters, such as displacement power factor, are captured in addition to energy and demand values.

The ELITEpro XC’s flexibility, size, and ease-of-use make it the ideal tool for gathering detailed consumption information in commercial, industrial, government and retail environments.

FOUR ANALOG INPUT CHANNELS: CORRELATE YOUR CONSUMPTION WITH ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS

New to the ELITEpro XC are 4 analog input channels which can be configured for voltage or current input used in any combination among channels. Analog inputs are especially helpful when used in conjunction with power measurements to correlate the consumption of electricity with environmental, HVAC plant performance, or other process conditions. Typical uses might include logging ambient temperature, building temperatures, solar insolation, tank pressures, duct flows, etc. Obtain this valuable data using just one meter: the ELITEpro XC.

FOCUSED ON ENERGY MEASUREMENT

DENT Instruments designs and manufactures data loggers and energy recorders for today’s energy professionals. Our products are often the first step in developing strong energy strategies, for maintaining peak operations, and for lowering operating costs. Our company has built a reputation for providing instruments of the highest quality whose robust design, small size and remote data acquisition make them the loggers of choice for companies large and small.

Since the company’s emergence in 1988, we have performed energy measurement studies for a wide range of utility, government, and private clients. This unique customer perspective has strongly influenced the design of our products, reflected in their ease of installation and use.

DENT products provide meaningful energy data that is used to accurately allocate energy costs, identify energy cost-savings opportunities and lower utility bills. Our versatile instruments help pinpoint electrical usage and quantify consumption.


ELITEPRO XC™ FEATURES

LINE POWERED WITH REDUCED IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT

The ELITEpro XC is powered directly from the phases of the service being measured. It incorporates a broadband power supply which operates on virtually any 80-600V phase-to-phase service. You will not have to worry about constantly changing or recharging batteries, nor finding an external power source at the job site. And you will avoid the negative environmental impact of disposing of batteries containing rare earth materials that are difficult to recycle or reclaim.

MEMORY FOR EXTENDED RECORDING

Measurements are stored in on-board memory at recording intervals selected by the user, which can be as short as one second or as long as once every 24 hours. The ELITEpro XC has 16MB of internal non-volatile memory, which allows for long-term logging sessions. For example, the ELITEpro XC can record a WYE setup with all available system measurements using a 2 minute integration interval for over 160 days!

FAST SAMPLING RATE DISPLAYS POWER QUALITY DATA

Regardless of the user-selectable recording interval, the ELITEpro XC has a waveform sampling frequency of 12 kHz. This is the number of data points the logger samples on each AC waveform (200 points per cycle at 60 Hz; 240 points per cycle at 50 Hz). This fast sampling rate allows for real-time display of voltage, current waveforms, and harmonics. The channel sampling rate is 8 Hz or every 125 mSec.

EXCLUSIVE CT PHASE ERROR CORRECTION

All CTs exhibit both a ratio error and phase shift error. The CT phase error results from the phase relationship of the input versus output signal difference. This inherent phase angle error affects power readings if left uncorrected. When using CTs with a known phase angle error, the ELITEpro XC can correct for this error—making your calculations more accurate, particularly on loads with low power factor.*

BI-DIRECTIONAL METERING FOR RENEWABLES STUDIES

The ELITEpro XC design delivers bi-directional metering, which is capable of monitoring power generated by a renewable energy source versus power imported from the grid—ideal for solar power measurements.

FIELD-PROVEN: RUGGED & COMPACT

Measuring in at only 21.6 x 6.3 x 4.7 cm (8.5” x 2.5” x 1.9”) and weighing 340 grams (12 ounces), the ELITEpro XC was designed to fit inside panels for safety and convenience. Its rugged plastic housing is even supplied with magnets on the housing to facilitate mounting.

Our optional NEMA 4 rated weathertight drop-in enclosure delivers stronger environmental integrity, separate voltage plugs, water-tight connectors for both the current leads and the power and communication cables. This option for the ELITEpro XC will meet the stringent requirements of remote data logging.

ELITEPRO XC™ START TO FINISH

EASY SETUP, INSTALLATION, AND DATA RETRIEVAL

  1. INSTALL ELOG AND SEND A SETUP TABLE TO THE ELITEPRO XC

    The ELITEpro XC is configured using ELOG software. A Setup Table is the file that programs the logger for an upcoming project. Set parameters such as sampling rate and type of service then send the file to the logger. The ELITEpro XC is now ready for deployment.

  2. CONNECT THE ELITEPRO XC TO THE PANEL YOU NEED TO MEASURE

    Installation and connection of the ELITEpro XC is both simple and straightforward. Magnets on the housing facilitate mounting inside electrical cabinets. A variety of internally-shunted, snap-on CTs and clip-on voltage leads connect to almost any panel load without turning the power off.

  3. DOWNLOAD THE DATA FROM THE ELITEPRO XC

    At the end of the project, simply connect the ELITEpro XC to a computer with ELOG and download the data file. Analyze the data and create graphs in ELOG or export the data as a .csv file to popular spreadsheet programs, such as Microsoft Excel®.


ELOG™ SIMPLE DATA ANALYSIS

POWERFUL SOFTWARE

The Windows-based ELOG software package is used to program the meter, display metered values, and retrieve and analyze the collected data. ELOG graphically displays recorded data, performs analysis, and facilitates automatic remote data collection. Data is also easily exported to popular spreadsheet and database programs for additional analysis. You are provided with an unlimited site license to the software with purchase.


COMMUNICATION OPTIONS

CONNECT TO THE ELITEPRO XC FOUR WAYS

STANDARD USB AND ETHERNET CONNECTIONS

Every ELITEpro XC includes a USB and Ethernet (RJ-45) port. Connect directly to the ELITEpro XC via the included A-to-B USB cable. Or, have the ELITEpro XC on your local area network for convenient remote data download. Supports 10/100 MB Ethernet over Cat 5 or better and can be configured for DHCP or static IP. Schedule automatic data downloads from the logger using AutoPoll software (included with ELOG). Reconfigure the ELITEpro XC for a new project without leaving your workstation.

OPTIONAL BLUETOOTH® WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY

Save time and meet safety requirements by communicating with the ELITEpro XC without removing the electrical panel door. In addition to the standard USB and Ethernet ports, ELITEpro XC instruments may be equipped with an optional Bluetooth® interface, which will allow a PC with a Bluetooth® adapter running ELOG to connect to the ELITEpro XC over short distances (10-100 feet typical) to send setup tables or download data. PC must support Serial Port Profile (SPP).

OPTIONAL WI-FI INTERFACE

Need a meter on your local area network but do not have a network connection near by? The ELITEpro XC’s optional Wi-Fi interface allows the meter to be connected to a Wi-Fi network and accessed from any PC on the network using ELOG software. Or, configure the ELITEpro XC as its own Wi-Fi hotspot and view real-time data using a Wi-Fi enabled PC, tablet, or smart phone via a web browser from up to 300 ft. away. Two antenna options available: internal antenna (75-300 ft.) or external 3 dbi antenna (150-300 ft). Use ELOG to switch between Wi-Fi and Access Point mode.
