The three major benefits
Powerlogic System is the Schneider Electric communication solution that gives you
access to important data available from your Medium Voltage and Low Voltage
power equipment.
You can access them wherever you are, from any PC connected to your Intranet via
a simple Web browser.
There are many parameters to take into account in order to retain control over an
installation: energy, current, voltages, cosM, harmonic distortion level, load trip
analysis, etc.
These parameters are essential in order to understand the electrical phenomena of
an installation. The number of parameters to consider depends on the site’s activity¸
on the installation, on performance levels, on the expected accuracy, etc.
It is therefore important to correctly target your requirement before any approach to
select equipment so that the selected metering devices are suited to your
requirements.
Furthermore, you must not forget that metering is only a tool that helps solve
electrical problems more effectively; it cannot solve everything by itself. The
interpretation of measurements is a decisive factor in terms of the results obtained.
Keep control over your power consumption
Powerlogic System provides comprehensive, real-time, permanent and
remote power consumption data. Consumption by building, sector, unit, workshop,
site, excessive or abnormal consumption, variations, you have all the data you need
to make direct savings on your electricity bill.
Electricity is one of the energy sources consumed by the end user (building, factory,
workshop, etc.). The costs of this energy are constantly increasing. End users can
therefore benefit from monitoring their electrical network to avoid any wastage and
to provide power where it is really needed.
Improving power supply availability
With Powerlogic System, you anticipate production stoppages.
Transformer overloads, phase unbalances, motors exceeding their running time
among other faults can cause production facility downtime. Finding out about
possible malfunctions allows you to anticipate faults in your power supply and
therefore improve its availability.
Continuity of service is a key issue. By monitoring the installation, managers opt for
preventive maintenance, which is a much more flexible method in terms of actions
and, in the end, less costly for the company.
Better managing your electrical installation
Your electrical installation is constantly monitored by Powerlogic System.
Knowing the status of your electrical equipment means that you get the full benefit of
its performance capability. This allows you to optimise installed base management
and investment spending.

Keep control over your power
consumption
Energy-power

There are three parts to your electricity bill:
b subscribed apparent power, the fixed part of your bill
b consumed real energy
b consumed reactive energy.
Example: in France, electricity bills can roughly be split into:
b 40 % network connection cost as set by government regulations
b 20 % national and local taxes
b 40 % energy consumption.
Power and energy levels are taken into account for monitoring electrical consumption
as well as for predicting when existing installation capacity will be exceeded.
These electrical values vary according to:
b the type of process
b the season, if outdoor temperatures vary considerably
b date and time
b changes or extensions of the site
b etc.
Putting utilities into competition has led to ongoing changes in supply offers where it
becomes strategic for end users to manage the annual load profile at their facility.
Harmonic currents create significant additional power losses and contribute to
increase power consumption.
Measuring
All Powerlogic System products are de facto metering units for currents, voltages and
power energy (e.g. Power Meter, see Powerlogic System products).
Some of them have a long term recording capacity (e.g. EGX400 for historical data
recording, see Powerlogic System products).
Impact
Short term issues
b Knowledge of consumption: measuring power consumption, power and current
levels, to get a better idea of when and how energy is consumed, all year long.
Moving consumption towards cheaper rate periods then becomes possible. Some
power consumption can be postponed without disturbing productivity and without
reducing occupant comfort, by managing current consuming devices using an
automatic control system.
Example: commonly, this solution is applied for the production of hot water with
storage water heaters as well as for storage based electric heating systems.
Another application: in some countries, large amounts of ice produced during low
price periods are used by refrigeration systems for air-conditioning.
b Minimising electricity costs in real time: disconnecting certain feeders to avoid
exceeding the chosen consumption threshold.
b Monitoring trend curves: observing power consumption trend lets us estimate
when there is a risk of exceeding an authorised maximum limit.
In the same way, it is possible to plan when it is necessary to change the rating of
switchgear (e.g.: Multi 9 compact circuit breaker).
b Managing sources: if the company has a second independent source, such as a
backup generator and peak-time supplies are costly, it is possible to limit
consumption during this period by switching part of the installation onto this second
source (generator sets).
This ensures that contract limits are never exceeded, reducing overall power costs.
In any estimated economic analysis, it is therefore useful to know the cost of the
substitution power, for instance generator set yield and the cost of fuel consumed.
This substitution of electric power supplied by a utility with power produced on-site
will very often be most favourable during the most expensive periods, depending on
the supply contract. The economic advantage derived from implementing an internal
power source cannot be separated from another very important advantage: the
ability to react to an interruption in external supply and to maintain key services.
Example: a French company has implemented several backup generators at the
headquarters of a major bank, installed in the Paris La Défense business district.
Each set has a capacity of 1250 kVA and one of them is regularly used during peak
times. It supplies 800 kW, two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon,
during the four winter months.
b Optimising reactive energy: by using a power factor correction equipment in
order to eliminate penalty charges (which also has the effect of reducing power
losses).

Keep control over your power
consumption
Energy-power
Long term issue: recording the load profile
Generally over a one year period. The load curve allows us to visualise the current
or power as a function of time and therefore to see how high peak consumption is
and how long it lasts.
b Power contract negotiation
Recording consumed power and load curves has several advantages:
v optimising the power contract. When you know your consumption, you can
check the suitability of the electrical power supply contract. If it does not match
requirements, the company can request a change of contract, which will avoid paying
too much compared with its consumption or paying penalties for days with high
consumption. Your load profile represents strategic information for "tunnel" type
contracts (contracts limited in terms of minimum and maximum consumption set
contractually for certain times of day)
v aggregating costs. For example by installing a device at each facility, overall
consumption is available and negotiating the right contract becomes easier.
Aggregating costs also involves having power meters for significant loads and for the
main power incomer (e.g. the incomer to a Low Voltage switchboard). By arithmetic
substraction, it is then possible to monitor consumption of auxiliary loads on the
application. Multiple facility aggregation makes it possible to negotiate a single
contract covering several remote facilities
v identifying available power reserves when extending electrical installations or
avoiding penalties for exceeding consumption.
Example: the figure shows the change in the load curve and the subscribed power
values. The limit not to exceed is the threshold when the higher contract becomes
financially more interesting:
v a winter subscription of 360 kW seems to be slightly over-sized because there are
very few times when consumption exceeds this level between February and March.
The optimised estimate of the subscription threshold for winter is 340 kW, however
potential savings are too low to warrant any change to the "winter subscription
threshold"
v the summer subscription of 540 kW seems slightly under-sized because there are
a few times when it is exceeded during June, July and August
v however the months of April, May, September and October have consumption
that is well below the subscribed power level for the summer period (540 kW)
v we observe that there is a gradual reduction in the active power taken from the
month of March through to the month of May. This reduction is probably due to the
gradual reduction in need for lighting and certainly for several convector heaters in
the plant as daylight hours grow longer. Only sub-metering will allow us to validate
this hypothesis.
We can see a sharp increase in power from May 26, which then drops back during
September. This increase is certainly due to the starting up of air-conditioning in the
plant.
b Internal consumption allocation
Sub-metering allows allocating consumption.
Metering electrical power consumption for each significant power consumer by
production line, by department, by product in order to allocate electricity costs.
Example: shopping centres, rented office space.
Productivity efforts on-site are measured by significant load (machine, workshop,
entire facility, subsidiary) and by comparing equivalent periods or equivalent loads at
different facilities.
Allocating consumption to a production cycle allows us to analytically allocate the
cost of a product at the end of its cycle by recording power measurements at the start
and at the end of production.

Power factor and cos M
0
The cos M corresponds to the phase angle of the voltage relative to the current for
signals of the same frequency. Power Factor (PF) is the ratio of real power P to
apparent power S. (IEC definition).
P
PF = ---S
PF is equal to cos M only under purely sinusoidal conditions, i.e. when no harmonics
are present.
In case of harmonics, PF = cos M / (1+THD2)1/2. THD (1) is significant for PF only when
non-linear loads are present (variable speed drives, UPS, computers, etc.).
Consequently, power factor is the most complete quantity but the separate measure
of cos M and THD is recommended to better decide how to correct the PF.
(1) THD: Total Harmonic Distortion.
Origin
Cos M is less than 1 for non-resistive loads, either inductive (motors or fluorescent
lamps), or capacitive (capacitors).
Measuring
Voltage and current metering unit to compute power factor and cos M.
Example: Varlogic, Power Meter, etc. (see Powerlogic System products).
Impact
As the power supply contract from an energy provider is based on real power, the
less reactive power is consumed by the site the less apparent power has to be
delivered by the energy provider, and the lower is the line current.
Low PF can also be due to harmonics.
The PF value not to exceed depends on:
b the limit set by the electrical power supplier leading to contractual penalty awarded
by the utilities who want to prevent the supply of excessive power related to a cos M
that is too low. This excess power leads to additional loss effect (temperature rise) on
distribution cables managed by the utilities.
Example: cost in France is E1.754/kvarh for kvarh in excess of 0.4 x kWh.
b the main circuit breaker adjustment, in terms of tripping. This tripping is imposed
by the power supplier within the framework of certain contracts (France: yellow tariff)
rather than tripping related to installation protection.
Impact of cos M on the available active power: this graph shows the change in
available active power for various cos M values, for a given apparent power.
Example: for a cos M of 0.8, the available active power will be no more than 800 kW.
S = 1000 kVA.

Improving power supply availability
With Powerlogic System, you anticipate production stoppage.
Transformer overloads, phase unbalances, motors exceeding their running time
among other faults can cause production facility downtime. Finding out about
possible malfunctions allows you to anticipate faults in your power supply and
therefore improve its availability.
Continuity of service is a key issue. By monitoring the installation, managers opt for
preventive maintenance, which is much more flexible and less costly for the company
than curative maintenance.
Different benefits of monitoring
Checking that the installation operates at its rated level
b Checking that the main electrical values (I, U, f) are at their rated level and that the
installation operates normally.
b Extrapolating the short and medium term changes to avoid reaching alarm levels
or protection device trip levels.
Checking device and machine availability
By knowing the position of circuit breakers (open/closed) or source switches (normal/
backup), the level of charge of UPS battery, the readiness of motor starters or
variable speed drives, the temperature of transformers, the number of connected
capacitor banks, etc.
Checking the quality of power and its impact on the installation or process
b Avoid premature ageing of equipment related to temperature rise caused by
harmonics (cables, transformers, motors).
b Avoid equipment destruction due to transient overvoltages and vibrations, reduced
continuity of service due to protection tripping, neutral overloading, etc.
b Avoid production stoppages leading to non-quality rejects and major financial
losses.
Example: in a paper mill, a voltage drop can generate a torque surge and rip the
paper roll. In processes such as machining, or glass fiber production, incorrect
voltage quality will have an impact on the finished product quality.
Current defects, such as unbalance, high current in the neutral conductor and high
inrush currents, can be the source of malfunctions in the electrical network.
Current unbalance
High current in the neutral
There is a current unbalance when the phase shift between the phase currents is not
equal to 120° or when the rms values are not equal.
High current in the neutral conductor is generally due to a current unbalance or the
presence of harmonic currents of order 3 (and multiples of 3).
Origin
Examples of current (voltage) unbalance.
b Current unbalance is due to incorrect spread of single phase loads between the
3 phases.
b Third harmonic currents are generated by single-phase non-linear loads such as
IT equipment, variable speed drives, UPS, battery chargers, etc.
Measuring
b phase currents
b neutral conductor current (when neutral is distributed)
b unbalance level (directly available on CM and Micrologic P and H : see Powerlogic
System products).
Impact
High values of neutral current can produce neutral conductor overload, particularly if
the neutral conductor is half-sized compared to the phases.
Current unbalance produces voltage unbalance which can be harmful to motors
(additional power losses, vibrations).

Inrush current
A high transient current: when an electrical device like a transformer is energised (for
0.2 to 2 seconds).
This short duration phenomenon is not displayed on the Web pages of the standard
Powerlogic System products other than through the recording of the max. current
level but it is available from dedicated tools for electrotechnical experts.
Origin
Energising of transformers, motors starting, connection of capacitor banks or lighting
ballasts.
Measuring
By metering unit (possibly wave capture with logging), by measuring the max current.
Example: Micrologic H (see Powerlogic System products).
As short duration current phenomena are very specific, they require the knowledge
of an electrotechnical expert.
The usual way to analyse these phenomena is to capture the wave forms for off-line
analysis using a dedicated software tool.
For this reason the Powerlogic System standard offer does not include dedicated
Web pages but allows the transmission of the complete data over the Intranet.
Example: wave form capture by Sepam, PM850, Micrologic H, CM3000 (see
Powerlogic System products) and transmission of data through the Intranet to ION-E
software for expert.

Voltage
Presentation
0
Voltage defects can be the source of malfunctions in the electrical network.
For example:
b voltage variations outside of a ±10 % band around the rated voltage (including
voltage dips)
b voltage interruptions
b voltage distortion (harmonics)
b transient overvoltages
b rapid voltage changes (producing flicker)
b voltage unbalance.
Origin
b Overvoltage can originate from over compensation of reactive energy, the loss of
neutral conductor or a fault affecting the energy provider regulation system.
b Undervoltage can be due to the energy provider's distribution line becoming
overloaded or the starting of large motors.
b Voltage dips are short duration undervoltages, generally caused by faults occuring
in the network user’s installation or in the public distribution system.
b Transient overvoltages are mainly due to capacitor banks switching or lightning
discharge.
b Rapid voltage changes are produced by rapidly fluctuating loads such as arc
furnace or large motors (elevators, wood choppers, etc.).
b Voltage unbalance is the result of the circulation of unbalanced currents, due to
unsuitable spread of single phase loads
Transient overvoltage.

b Current, average and maximum voltage phase-to-phase or phase-to-neutral

b Unbalance voltage as defined by IEC standard (Negative sequence voltage /

b Overvoltage: can result in equipment premature ageing or even failure.
b Undervoltage: makes motor starting more difficult as the starting torque is
reduced. The permanent current absorbed by motors is increased, which may result
in overheating and tripping of protection relays.
Motor efficiency and applied voltage.
Long or short interruption
Supply interruptions are characterized by a total loss of supply voltage and duration:
b < 3 mn: short interruption
b > 3 mn: long interruption.
Origin
Long interruptions of supply by the energy provider are whether prearranged for the
execution of scheduled works or accidental, generally the consequence of bad
weather conditions.
Short interruptions of supply are the consequence of fault clearance and automatic
reclosing of circuit breakers. Interruption can also originate from failures inside the
user’s installation: cable failure, loosening of terminals, short-circuits.
Measuring
Short interruption.
Phase-to-phase voltages with recording over time.
Impact
Supply interruptions can have a large diversity of consequences: simple momentary
discomfort, loss of production, loss of valuable data, destruction of production tools,

Harmonics

Harmonics
Harmonics are present when voltages and currents have distorted, non-sinusoidal
waveforms.
Origin
Harmonic currents are generated by non-linear loads, i.e. loads that draw current
with a waveform that is not the same as that of the supply voltage.
Harmonic voltages are the consequence of the circulation of harmonic currents
through the system impedance.
Example of non-linear loads: rectifiers, variable speed drives, UPS, office equipment
(computers, servers, photocopiers, ...).
The Total Harmonic Distortion (THDu (1) for voltage, THDi (1) for current)
characterizes the waveform distortion.

Effects
Heating, premature aging (breakdown), resonance.
Losses and additional heating. Reduced ability to run at full
load. Oscillating torque (vibration, mechanical fatigue).
Audible nuisance.
Losses (heat-iron) and additional heating. Mechanical
vibration. Audible nuisance.
Nuisance tripping.
Additional dielectric and heat losses (especially neutral losses
when third order harmonics are present).
Example: conductor power losses.
The following features are shown in the next figure, as a function of THDi:
b the increase in rms current, Irms, for a load absorbing a given fundamental current
b the increase in heat losses, Pj, without taking into account the skin effect (taking
base 1 as reference on the graph for Irms and Pj in the case where there are no
harmonics present). Therefore, harmonic currents generate an increase in losses
expressed in Joules from all conductors and additional temperature rises in
transformers, switchgear and cables.
In the case of THDi > 50 %, the recommendation is to consider significant load losses
increase and that consequently transformer temperature rises exceeding those
corresponding to sine wave currents with the same rms value.
Refer to the current section on how to take into account the effect of current harmonic
pollution.

Better managing
of your electrical installation
This objective can be reached through monitoring the following aspects.
Electrical network day-to-day operation
Numerous operators on-site, electricians, production supervisors, facility managers,
need to know the situation of the equipment at any time. The status of breakers or
other power devices is a very commonly required information.
Preventive maintenance
The electrical equipment requires maintenance operations in line with
manufacturer's recommendations.
Typical parameters often used are equipment temperature, running hours, insulation
levels.
Example: the number of running hours of a motor, the number of switching
operations for a circuit breaker.
Tailored investment
b Checking that electrical values do not exceed the maximum permissible values
given by the manufacturer makes it possible to guarantee the equipment’s service
life.
b Identifying the available reserve power makes it possible to better manage future
investment in electrical equipment.
b The same applies to identifying the average load level according to production
cycles, seasons, etc. and deducing the available power for new current consuming
devices.
Having the real technical information available gives credibility when increase of the
power capacity has to be decided.
Once the metering system is installed on the electrical network, it becomes possible
to interpret the measurements based on two analysis levels:
b electrician's level: the special user of Powerlogic System solutions
b electrotechnical expert's level: present in all companies highly dependent on
electrical power (end user, contractor, panel builder, design offices or Schneider
Electric).
What follows in the document presents a summary of interpretations of the
measurements provided by the Powerlogic System solution and intended for
electricians.
These measurements are linked to the three major benefits you derive from
Powerlogic System solutions:
b keeping control of your power consumption
b improving power supply availability
b better managing your electrical installation.

Temperature
0
Temperature is a parameter to be taken into account because it is closely related to
the electrical switchboard load and environment.
Origin
Excessive temperature is revealing an overload, incorrect connections (not
complying with tightening torques) or poor electrical cabinet ventilation.
Measuring
Metering units with temperature probes.
Example: Power Meter or Sepam options (see Powerlogic System products).
Impact
The main impact of uncontrolled temperature is reduced equipment service life
(motor, transformer).
Apart from electrical or mechanical faults, the service life of electrical equipment is
limited by the temperature its insulation is subjected to: the higher it is, the shorter
the service life. Tests carried out on a large number of power devices have shown
that the service life of a device is reduced by around half every time the temperature
increases by 10 °C (outside of its operating temperature range).
Example: an electrical device with a service life of eight years and an operating
temperature of 105 °C:
In this example, the service life of the device falls from eight years to one at an
operating temperature of 135 °C instead of 105 °C.
Example: IEC standards 60-905 and 60-354 define the impact on the service life and
on the operation of power transformers (cast resin and oil-immersed types) outside
of their maximum service temperature limits.

Insulation resistance
0
Insulation faults lead to leakage current between phase and earth.
To avoid a tripping, an IT isolated neutral system is prefered.
Example: operating room in hospitals.
Origin
Aging cables, accumulation of conductive dust on busbars or terminal boxes.
Measuring
For IT isolated neutral system: permanent insulation monitoring.
Example: Vigilohm system (see Powerlogic System products).
This measurement is carried out with direct current. The insulation resistance must
be measured between each active conductor and earth.
Minimum values of the insulation resistance (regulatory thresholds):
Circuit rated voltage (V)
Very low safety and protection voltage levels
Not exceeding 500 V, except in the cases below
In excess of 500 V
Insulating resistance (M:)
0.25
0.5
1.0
Insulation is generally checked first as far upstream as possible in the specific
installation. If the insulation exceeds the value specified in the table, installation
insulation is correct.
If the measured value is less than that specified in the table, the insulation resistance
of each circuit must be measured until the feeder(s) with low resistance is(are)
located.
Impact
On the following equipment: circuit breaker, permanent insulation controller.
Every piece of equipment is designed for a certain number of switching operations,
or for a certain service life.
The number of successive direct on line start-ups of motors depends on the driven
load characteristics (torque curve as a function of speed, inertia). Repeated start-ups
increase the motor temperature as well as the strain on the machine. This shortens
the service life and can even lead to failure.
For more information on the number of authorised consecutive start-ups, refer to the
machine characteristics or consult the manufacturer.
The load characteristics must be known in order to determine the start-up frequency.
If continuity of service is a key requirement, the number of past start-ups may be
used to plan preventive maintenance.
Measuring
Provided by metering units, variable speed drives, UPS devices for battery
maintenance, etc.
Impact
These quantities must be taken into account in the equipment maintenance policy,
especially when forecasting procurement and replacement during shutdown periods.

Case 1 - Medium sized facility
Analysesamples Ltd. is a company specialising in analysing industrial samples:
metals, plastics, etc., from production plants in the region to certify their chemical
characteristics. The company wants to ensure better control over its electric power
consumption at existing electrical furnaces and in its air-conditioning system and to
ensure the quality of the supply to highly accurate electronic devices used for sample
analysis.

Powerlogic System electrical network
The Powerlogic System solution supports power value retrieval via the EGX400 Web
server and the Internet browser and enables them to be used with a Microsoft©
ExcelTM type spreadsheet. The power curves can then be plotted in real time by the
spreadsheet.
No IT investment, whether hardware or software, is needed to access the data via
the existing office network.
The metering devices also allow measurement of basic electrical parameters as well
as briefly checking the quality of electrical power.
When used in the commercial sector, PM710 can be replaced with PM9C. According
to applications, PM9C may be sufficient. In this case the overview of power quality is
not available and the unit is only mounted on a DIN rail.
To reduce the electricity bill and limit evening and weekend consumption, the trend
curves provided by the PM850 should be studied (see Powerlogic System products).
The two figures below show the change in load curve before and after actions
intended to reduce the electricity bill.
These curves are focused on the change in evening and weekend power levels.
The first way in which we can act involves detailed analysis of measurements. The
reports and the consumption curves allow this analysis to take place. These
documents help us to detect abnormal consumption.
In our example, this involves checking if the consumption drops normally at night or
during weekend.
Here, consumption during non-opening hours seems excessive, as a result, two
decisions were taken:
b reducing lighting at night
b switching off air-conditioning during weekends.
The new curve obtained shows a significant drop in power consumption.

Case 2 - Tertiary building site
Biotech SA develops software for simulating the effect of drugs used to fight certain
human illnesses. It employs external consultants for each kind of drug. An
experimental laboratory is used for software validation. It is located in a 20-storey
building including the R&D department, the laboratory, support functions and
executive management.
Following unexpected power outages with expensive consequences, the company
decided to replace its existing electrical equipment, and to have a backup power
supply as well as having a real-time monitoring system for the electrical situation.
Powerlogic System electrical network
Powerlogic System is integrated into the building’s Intranet infrastructure.
The basic values are monitored: current, voltage, frequency, power and energy.
For the main circuit breaker: we also have the date-stamped event function, as well
as continuous harmonics measurement, order by order.
For the feeders (see Powerlogic System products):
b PM820: date-stamped alarms, particularly suited for motor type current
consuming devices with a process that is sensitive to power outages
b PM9C: basic values.
Note: the date-stamped alarm function can be achieved with a PM810 combined with a
PM810log module which adds an 80 kB memory (which notably allows recording the time and
measurements in a data log).
By replacing the PM820 with a PM850, the user also benefits from trend curve and
wave form capture functions, for example when an alarm threshold is exceeded.
Certain Schneider Electric Web servers allow maintenance staff to be informed of
any operating anomaly. To do this, they send historical data or alarms generated by
the metering units or by the Masterpact or Compact circuit breakers, by e-mail and
text messages, via the Internet service provider.
The CM4000 allows verification of EN 50160 conformity as well as the detection and
capture of transients of less than 1P second. It is also equipped with the D.D.D.
("Direction Disturbance Detection") function which records the direction of
disturbances, in other words determining whether the disturbance was generated by
the facility or the supplier.
Sensitive feeders can also be equipped with PM850 enabling wave form capture as
well as harmonic content, order by order. A CM3350 is justified by the ability to detect
voltage surges and drops.
A feeder that is not very sensitive is equipped with a PM700 in order to find out the
harmonic distortion level.

Case 3 - Multiple locations
Fourcar Inc. is a worldwide consumer products retailer (food, textiles, hardware,

Constantly searching for productivity gains to highlight its greater financial appeal
over its main competitors, this company wants to improve the power performance at
its locations and is interested in setting up benchmarking between them in terms of
power consumption. It is considering assigning this task to Facility Manager partners
chosen by country or region.
The company wants to get a management chart to consolidate results on a
worldwide scale.
The chosen Facility Managers, in charge of all energy consumed on-site, water, gas,
fuel, electricity, have to call in an electrical distribution specialist to analyse the data.
Powerlogic System electrical networks
Powerlogic System is integrated in the company’s Intranet infrastructure. Site by site,
building by building, electrical switchboards are connected to the Intranet to provide
key electrical data.
ION-E
On a worldwide level, according to access authorisation rules for the company’s own
information and implemented by the company’s IT manager, each electrical
switchboard becomes accessible via a simple Internet browser, without any IT
investment, either hardware or software.
By country or by region, the electrician's team in charge of electrical power
availability at several locations can already consult this data remotely without wasting
time on transport: they simply have to connect a PC from anywhere on the Intranet.
The Facility Manager or the IT expert can access electrical data, yet the company's
IT managers forbid any Intranet connection by anyone from outside of the company:
this is the most common security policy intended basically to avoid introducing
viruses.
Sending data out from the Intranet is however allowed.
Data can be regularly captured in electrical power spreadsheets stored in a PC at the
company and sent by e-mail to the Facility Managers or to the expert electricians, at
a preset frequency (daily, weekly, etc.)
The Schneider Electric Services e-Analysis offer includes all of these functions to
which we can add the provision of a Web portal where the Facility Manager or the
company can access the expertise of our electrical network specialists. This
expertise is focused on analysing electrical power consumption, power availability
and optimising operation of electrical equipment.

Use with a contactor
A measurement instrument is normally continually supplied.
For a non-continuous supply (load switching), we recommend that you place the
breaking device downstream from the measurement instrument to limit disturbances
on the module inputs.
These disturbances, particularly on inductive loads, may result in early ageing of the
device.
You must also place the measurement instrument at a distance from the breaking
device to limit the risk of disturbance.

alarming and input metering capability. The PM820, PM850 and the PM870 also
offer custom on-board logging and individual current and voltage harmonic readings.
The PM850 includes waveform capture. The PM870 is a compact meter that offers
voltage and current disturbance (sag and swell) detection and configurable
waveform capture.
Applications
Panel instrumentation
b sub-billing, cost allocation and utility bill verification
b remote monitoring of an electrical installation
b mid-range power quality analysis and energy management (the PM870 includes
sag and swell detection)
b utility contract optimization and load preservation.
Characteristics
Easy to install

ION7300 series
Functions and characteristics
0
Used in enterprise energy management applications such as feeder monitoring and
sub-metering, ION7300 series meters offer unmatched value, functionality, and ease
of use. ION7300 series meters interface to ION Enterprise® software or other
automation systems to give all users fast information sharing and analysis.
ION7300 meters are an ideal replacement for analog meters, with a multitude of
power and energy measurements, analog and digital I/O, communication ports, and
industry-standard protocols. The ION7330 meter adds on-board data storage, emails
of logged data, and an optional modem. The ION7350 meter is further augmented by
more sophisticated power quality analysis, alarms and a call-back-on-alarm feature.
Applications
PowerLogic ION 7330.
Power monitoring and control operations.
IEC class 0,5S energy metering.
Power quality analysis.
Cost allocation and billing.
Demand and power factor control.
Load studies and circuit optimisation.
Equipment monitoring and control.
Preventative maintenance.
Main characteristics
Analyse power quality
Use meter data to analyse problems and avoid repeat interruptions by uncovering
the sources of harmonics and voltage dips and swells.
Allocate costs
Determine cost centers, identify opportunities for demand control, and check energy
consumption patterns.
Increase efficiency

conditions and set alarms.
Integrate with software
Easily integrate ION7300 meters with an energy management or SCADA system to
provide remote display at a PC workstation, as well as remote configuration and
manual control capabilities.
Notification of alarms via email
Alarm notifications sent via email to any workstation, cell phone, pager, or PDA.
Server for custom HTML pages
An on-board Web server combined with an Ethernet port offers quick and easy
access to real-time energy and basic power quality information without special
software.
Interoperability expands existing networks (ION7330/7350)
The ION7330/ION7350 concurrently communicates via multiple protocols, allowing
you to extend an existing Modbus, DNP, or Enterprise network.
Monitor dips and swells

Function
The Ip/5A ratio current transformers deliver at the secondary a current of 0 to 5 A that
is proportional to the current measured at the primary. They are available in two
major families:
b:cable current transformers
b:bar current transformers.
This allows them to be used in combination with measurement instruments:
ammeters, watt-hour meters, measurement units, control relays, etc.

Choosing a current transformer
Choice of a CT depends on 2 criteria:
b:the Ip/5 A ratio
b:the installation type.
The Ip/5 A ratio
We recommend that you choose the ratio immediately higher than the maximum
measured current (In).
Example: In = 1103 A; ratio chosen = 1250/5.
For small ratings from 40/5 to 75/5 and for an application with digital devices, we
recommend that you choose a higher rating, for example 100/5.
This is because small ratings are less accurate and the 40 A measurement, for
example, will be more accurate with a 100/5 CT than with a 40/5 CT.
The installation type
Choice of a CT model depends on the installation type:
b:insulated cables
b:mounting on bars.
Important precaution
Never open the secondary circuit of a current transformer when the primary circuit is
energised.
Prior to working on the secondary circuit, the secondary terminals of the current
transformer must be short-circuited.
Determining the accuracy class of a CT
The accuracy class depends on the apparent power (VA) of the transformer and on
consumption of the complete measurement system.
The latter allows for consumption of all the devices and the connecting cables.
For a given accuracy class, consumption of the measurement system must not
exceed apparent power (VA) of the CT transformer.

Based on the result, the CT accuracy class is determined (see previous page):

b:class 1 for a 100/5 ratio CT
b:class 0.5 for a 125/5 ratio CT.

Specific case of the motor starter
To measure motor starter current, you must choose a CT with primary current
Ip = Id/2 (Id = motor starting current).
Tip:
Use a current transformer to measure a nominal current of 50 A.
50/5 A CT, Imax = 50 A
This is because to divide by 2 the nominal current of a transformer, you only need to
pass the current to be measured twice through this transformer.
Equivalent to a 100/5 A CT, Imax = 50 A

costs in terms of operation, maintenance
and investment.

With communication technology, it is no longer necessary to be physically present at
the site to access information. Data is transmitted by networks.
In all architectures, the communication interface serves as the link between the
installation devices and the PC running the operating software. It provides the
physical link and protocol adaptation. Adaptation is required because the
communication systems used by the PC (Modbus via RS232 and/or Ethernet) are
generally not those used by the installation devices (e.g. the Modbus protocol via
RS485).
Dedicated application software prepares the information for analysis under the best
possible conditions.
Modbus communication architecture.
In addition, an EGX100 in serial port slave mode allows a serial Modbus master
device to access information from other devices across a Modbus TCP/IP network.

Ethernet link
Using modern Web technologies, the operator can access information from
monitoring and protection devices using any PC connected to the network, with all
the required security.
The Ethernet EGX100 gateway or the EGX400 servers provide connectivity between
Modbus RS485 and Ethernet Modbus TCP/IP (1).
EGX100

Ethernet communication architecture.
The services available with these technologies considerably simplify the creation,
maintenance and operation of these supervision systems.
The application software is now standardised: the web interface into the system does
not require custom web pages to be created. It is personalised by simply identifying
the components in your installation and can be used as easily as any internet
application.
These services are part of the Transparent Ready Equipment offer. The first step in
this approach is the EGX400 server with HTML pages set up by the
WebPageGenerator (WPG). System Manager Software (ION-E), running on a PC,
provides broader coverage for more specific needs.
(1) The ECC21 card, an option for the CM3000 and CM4000 Circuit Monitors, also serves as an
interface between Modbus RS485 and Ethernet Modbus TCP/IP.

EGX400 Ethernet server
Function
The EGX400 server is used as an Ethernet gateway for PowerLogic® System
devices and for any other communicating devices utilizing Modbus protocol.
The EGX400 offers the following features and benefits:
b HTML pages (set up using WebPageGenerator “WPG”) that can be accessed
using a standard web browser and are used to display the information provided by
the devices connected to the server
b Historical data logs from serial devices on 5, 10, 15, 30, or 60 minute intervals
b E-mail historical data logs on a user-defined schedule
b Supports SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) using MIB2
(Management Information Base)
b Supports SNTP (Simple Network Time Protocol) for time synchronization.
System ManagerTM Software (ION-E) and internet browser
The EGX400 server makes it possible to implement two types of user interface:
b ION-E power-monitoring software providing access to all status and measurement
information. ION-E includes a powerful reporting tool that provides pre-defined and
user-defined summary reports for PQ, energy, and other area of interest.
b a standard web browser providing access to the main information organised in
predefined HTML pages.
These two approaches, ION-E and web browser, are complementary:
b ION-E offers complete access to all information, but must be installed on each PC
b the HTML pages offer partial access to the main information via any PC connected
to the network.

and provide a consistent flow of easy to interpret information.
Micro Power Server is designed for unattended operation
within the main LV switchboard
The MPS100 is a self-contained facility information server that serves as a standalone device for power system monitoring.
It is used to transfer power system information via a standard web browser over
an Ethernet local area network (LAN) or via modem, making it possible to view power
system information on a PC with an Ethernet connection.
In either capacity, the Micro Power Server functions as a web server for Micrologic
trip unit and Power Meter (PM500) supervision, automatically notifying (e-mail
and/or SMS) maintenance staff when any preset alarm or trip is activated in
the Micrologic trip unit.

Prisma plus & Okken MCC
Description
MCC (Motor Control Center) control switchboard is the Low Voltage switchboard
dedicated to motor control and protection functions.
It makes the work of supervision and maintenance teams easier by improving
process availability, via the digital motor controller, a part of the Transparent Ready
solution. It provides better knowledge of motors, analysis of operating conditions and
alarm thresholds before tripping, etc.
This solution decreases the number of process stoppages and their duration,
reduces maintenance and repair costs and optimises process productivity by
providing data on the motor, rapid diagnosis and the analysis of logs using statistics
from the electronic protection module. MCC provides a higher level of safety for
personnel: an Intranet RJ45 connector on the front panel allows direct monitoring
without opening the doors.

Canalis
Description
The Canalis high power busbar system has been designed to feed and distribute
high power in industrial, commercial or service buildings from 1000 A up to 5000 A
for three-phase and neutral power distribution needs. Canalis 250 and 400 A taps for
billing and measurements are useful for KT and KS two-level busbar systems.
They are equipped with a Power Meter 810 U, a Compact NS with CT that is used to
protect and monitor the line. Taps that allow sub-billing with cost allocation and
monitoring for secondary lines are connected through a Modbus communication
serial link to the Transparent Ready solution.
If a switchboard is located downstream or upstream from the high power busbar
system, then fit the PM in the switchboard for practical reasons on-site, and not on
the tap.
The KBA busbar system is used not only for facility lighting but also to supply the
PM810 and to wire the Modbus serial link cable.

power and information to Modbus/Ethernet Web server.
Taps are industrialised with a PM810U which is a Power Meter without display
screen, so it has better temperature resistance and is particularly suited to Canalis
monitoring.

Description
Compact & Interpact
Compact & Interpact systems are suited to a very wide range of Low Voltage
configurations up to 630 A (Refer also to the section on Micrologic). The objective of
the Transparent Ready solution is to monitor the position and status of the breakers
and switches on the EGX400 Web pages by using the ad hoc auxiliary accessories.

Multi 9
The Multi 9 system comprises an extensive range of switching and protection
devices that meet all electrical distribution needs up to 250 A. The objective of the
Transparent Ready solution is to monitor the position and status of the main breakers
on the EGX400 Web pages by using the ad hoc auxiliary accessories.
Twido interface
With its expandable block type architecture, the programmable controller Twido
adapts to all remote data capture configurations. In addition, the optimised size of
these products are ideally suited to the size of enclosures used for distributed
Compact or Multi 9 systems located in the distribution cabinet. This solution reduces
cabling time and cost required to gather circuit breaker status data (digital inputs) and
at the same time takes into account the modular architecture of the distribution
network.
It includes Modbus RS 485 serial link communication. Each base incorporates 12
inputs to energise with 24 V DC. Two inputs are used by a Multi 9 or Compact device
(circuit breaker, switch, etc.), one for position, one for status. TwidoSoft is needed for
time stamping of the inputs and for sorting the time stamped data in the Modbus
table.

ConneXium Ethernet cabling system
Description
ConneXium is the Schneider Electric rugged solution for Ethernet cabling systems
especially supporting Modbus TCP/IP. ConneXium products are adapted to
electrical distribution and can be mounted on a DIN rail.
ConneXium hubs - passive concentrators to connect Ethernet users
Hubs are used for transmitting signals between several ports. Hubs make it possible
to create different topologies.
ConneXium transceivers - active device used to create Ethernet subnet in
order to optimise response time
ConneXium transceivers make it possible to interface products using twisted pair
cable Ethernet connections and fibre optic cables. ConneXium transceivers provide
fibre optic connections for transmission in areas subject to interference (high levels
of electromagnetic interference) and for long distance communications.
ConneXium switches
Switches are used to increase the limits of architectures based on hubs or
transceivers, by separating collision domains (filtering). Certain ConneXium switches
also enable redundant architectures to be created on twisted pair copper or fibre
optic rings. They can also be remotely administered using SNMP or HTTP protocols
for monitoring and diagnosis purposes.
ConneXium connection cables
ConneXium shielded connection cables are available in two versions to meet current
standards and approvals:
b standard EIA/TIA 568 shielded twisted pair cables
b UL and CSA 22.1 approved shielded twisted pair cables. Their fire resistance
conforms to NFPA 70.
ConneXium provides two glass fibre optic cables for connection of terminal devices
to hubs, switches and transceivers.

RS 485 connection
Typical design
Description
Technical characteristics
The physical transmission systems used by Transparent Ready products to send
data are EIA RS 485 standard compliant.
As standard, only "two-wire" cabling is offered here as it has proven its efficiency in
industrial environments.
The RS 485 cabling architecture proposed in this section is suited to switchboard
needs, for electric power distribution switchboards and motor control switchboards:
bus length limited to 1200 meters, total tap length limited to 40 meters, with one meter
per tap recommended.
The transmission line uses a bus topology and must be "impedance adapted" to limit
the distortions to transmission signals from high frequencies signal propagation
phenomena. This means that the transmission line must essentially comprise a
"trunk line" with a characteristic impedance of 120 :, terminated at each end by a
"line termination impedance" Rc of 120 :. Taps from this trunk line (the stub lines)
must be kept "short".
RS 485 polarisation
The effect of polarisation is to continually carry a current through the network,
imposing an idle state on all loads. It must be unique on the bus. We recommend
using the Modbus master's supply and Rp polarisation resistors.
Note: the EGX400 web server handles polarisation: In practice, the two wire RS 485 link requires
a third wire for the common line, separated from the shield and connected to earth at both ends.
A 24 V supply pair is added to the bus pair in the same cable to supply some of the
communication devices: the Sepam interface and Micrologic communication module.
The Modbus 0 V common line is also the 0 V level for the 24 V DC supply.
Using RS 485 to connect products
Schneider Electric offers various methods for connecting Transparent Ready
products to the EGX400 Web server via an RS 485 Modbus communication link:
b a dedicated ACE interface for Sepam protection relays
b Phoenix terminal blocks for direct wire connection using screw terminal blocks
b CJB306 junction boxes with Sub-D9 connectors and built-in terminal block
b Modbus LU9GC3 splitter block with RJ45 connectors.
DB108401
Typical design
Case 1: dedicated ACE interface for Sepam protection relays
This active interface is required when using Sepam Series 20, 40 and 80 devices.
Different versions are available including the ACE949-2 interface
(refer to the Sepam documentation).
The ACE949-2 interface performs two functions:
b the electrical interface between the Sepam device and a two wire RS 485
communication network
b serving as the network cable connector box for connecting a Sepam device with a
CCA612 cable.
If the interface is on the end of an RS 485 network, a jumper can be set for line-end
impedance matching with load resistor.
An external 12 V DC or 24 V DC ±10% supply is required.
If no Transparent Ready products from other ranges are connected to the RS 485
link, the EGX400 Web server will be directly connected to the first ACE949-2
interface.
Case 2: Phoenix terminal blocks for direct
wire connection using screw terminal blocks
Phoenix offers passive RS 485 wiring terminals
using daisy-chaining.
Daisy-chaining is effective when connecting
devices outside the switchboard, or between two
switchboard columns that are separated for
Bus junction box.
transport reasons.
This method can however also generate wiring
errors at each terminal end:
Schneider Electric recommends standardising
the wire colours used for the RS 485 link when
producing the wiring diagrams.
With CCR301 cables, the following standard is
used:
b data wire D1= blue
b data wire D0 = white
b shield (earth symbol) = green
b common (0 V) = black
b VP (24 V) = red.

b Belden 3084 A with 24 V DC distribution up to 1.5 A.
Recommended terminal blocks for daisy-chaining:
b the basic bus connector is a withdrawable connector with five terminals, printed
labels + Bus, - Bus, 0 V, +24 V, shield: Phoenix ref. UMSTBVK 2.5/5-GF-5.08 and
MSTB 2.5/5-STF type
b earth terminal: Telemecanique AB1TP435U,
b line termination: Telemecanique VW3A8306DRC.
Case 3: CJB306 junction boxes with Sub-D9 connectors and built-in terminal
block
Schneider Electric recommends using CJB306 passive junction boxes for quick setup and easy error checking as all connections are concentrated geographically at
one point: do not "daisy-chain" the devices but connect each of them to the junction
block.
This method does however increase cable lengths between the product and the
junction box in the cabinet. A 40 meter length limit must be complied with when
totalling the wire lengths of all of the taps.
The CJB306 junction box is used to connect up to six products, receive a 24 V DC
(led) power supply, and allows configuration with RS 485 two wire connection and to
terminate the last RS 485 link with an end of line resistor. It is connected to earth.
The CCD303 cable between the Micrologic unit and the CJB306 also sends
the 24 V DC supply required by the Micrologic Modbus communication module.
The CSD309 connector is used to connect any product to the CJB306 junction block.
Schneider Electric recommends the use of the CCR301 and CCP303 cables as the
colour of each wire is used as a reference in section Wiring the Equipment when
connecting different Transparent Ready products.
Note: To change from an RS 485 four wire link to an RS 485 two wire link with the CCR301 cable,
the wiring is as follows:
b In + and Out + are connected to D1 = blue and yellow
b In – and Out – are connected to D0 = white and brown
b earth = green
b 0 V = black
b 24 V = red.
Case 4: Modbus LU9GC3 splitter block with RJ45 connectors.
The LU9GC3 splitter block is recommended for devices connected via a Modbus
RS 485 serial link using an RJ45 connector. The other devices can be connected
using a Telemecanique VW3A8306D30 type cable without an RJ45 connector at one
end.
Schneider Electric recommends the use of LU9GC3 splitter block for quick set-up
and easier checking of errors as all connections are concentrated geographically at
one point: do not "daisy-chain" the devices but connect each of them to the junction
block.
This method does however increase cable lengths between the product and the
junction block in the cabinet. A 40 meter length limit must be complied with when
totalling the wire lengths of all of the taps.
The LU9GC3 splitter block is used to connect up to ten devices and to terminate the
last RS 485 link with an end of line resistor.

Description
Schneider Electric, provides connector and wiring solutions for connecting PCs to
Transparent Ready electrical equipment or Web servers to end user Intranet
systems.
b The Infraplus* RJ45 protection connector socket is specially designed for highly
protected applications in the severe environments that can be found in electric power
distribution applications. Made to IP67 standard, it offers full safety for industrial
Ethernet applications.
The RJ protection connector must be used with a shielded female RJ45 connector
like the Infraplus RJ45 slim jack, FTP category 6.
Patch cords are Ethernet cables equipped with male RJ45 connectors.
b Schneider Electric offers a splitter block to simplify equipment wiring. When 10
Mbit and 100 Mbit connections with standardized Ethernet cable are used, only two
of the four pairs are used, so the splitter block lets you use the remaining two pairs
so that only one cable is required instead of two. Two Ethernet RJ45 are then
available in the switchboard, one for EGX400 and one for the front panel protected
RJ45 connector.

This section is intended for optimising the wiring of communicating Transparent
Ready products integrated in MV & LV power equipment and the cabling of
Transparent Ready equipment on-site.
Earth ground and machine ground
The role of an earth grounding network is to discharge to ground all leakage and fault
currents from equipment, common mode currents from external cables, mainly
power and telecommunication and direct lightning current.
Physically, low resistance in relation to a distant earth ground is fewer relevant than
the local equipotentiality of the building. In fact, the most sensitive lines are those
which connect equipment together. In order to limit the flow of common mode
currents in cables which do not leave the building, voltages between equipment
interconnected at the site must be limited.
Interconnecting buried networks is recommended. When the area of a building is
small, i.e. approximately ten square meters, a simple buried belt is sufficient. For new
buildings with a large surface area, we recommend linking buried conductors in a
cage measuring approximately 10 m on each side.
A machine or chassis ground is any conductive part of a device which is accessible
to touch and, although not normally live, can become so if a fault occurs. The contact
voltage of two machine grounds which are simultaneously accessible must be lower
than the conventional contact limit voltage (25 V or 50 V as the case may be). This
is fundamentally all that is important in personnel safety terms, rather than the
ground resistance or the way in which machine grounds are earthed.
Electronic equipment and systems are interconnected. The best way of ensuring
efficient operation is to maintain good equipotentiality between the different devices.
Inter-device equipotentiality must remain satisfactory, particularly for digital
equipment, up to very high frequencies:
b in cases of incompatibility, safety rules take precedence over EMC constraints
b in cases of incompatibility between the recommendations in this manual and
specific instructions for a device, the latter take precedence.
Shielded Cables
A shielded cable provides excellent protection against electromagnetic interference,
particularly high frequencies. The effectiveness of a shielded cable depends on the
choice of shielding and, even more importantly, on how it is installed.
Choice of cable
The choice of shielding quality depends on the type of connection. Schneider Electric
defines the cables for each fieldbus and local network so as to ensure the
electromagnetic compatibility of the installation. The problem with taped cables is
their fragility. The protective effect of taped cables at HF is reduced as the cable is
subject to different forces, such as traction and torsion. Single braid cables are the
most common minimum solution for industrial applications.
From a few MHz, the protective effect can reach several hundred MHz using a single
braid if the shielding connections are suitable. Flexible, strong shielding makes
installation fairly simple, and is compatible with Sub-D or mini-DIN connectors.
Where should the connection be made?
Unidirectional connection of the shielding prevents LF currents from flowing through
the braid. The shielding masks the LF electric field.
Differential signals are thus protected in LF mode. In HF mode, this type of
connection is not effective.
Bidirectional connection of the shielding can be used to protect against the most
severe interference: HF common mode.
The problem with bilateral connections is that at low frequencies a current can flow
on the shielding (voltage between the two ends or looped field coupling). This current
generates a low voltage, sometimes called "hum", or 50 Hz noise, on the pair inside.
Both ends of the external shielding of all digital or power connections should be
connected to the machine ground at their point of entry into the equipment. Only lowlevel low frequency unshielded analogue connections should be connected at one
end only.

Wiring rules for panelbuilders
Rule no. 1
The outward and return conductors must always be adjacent to each other. For
digital or analogue signals, the use of pairs is a minimum requirement. Special
attention should be paid to wiring inside enclosures which use separated conductors.
The wires must be labelled by signal type and by pair. Special case: the wiring for
chains of emergency stop and alarm systems must never be single wire point-topoint but in pairs.
Rule no. 2
Fastening all connections to grounding equipotential structures is recommended in
order to benefit from an HF protective effect. Ideally, shielded cables or shielded
multiple strands should systematically be used. Nevertheless, the use of ducts for
conducting cables provides a satisfactory level of protection in most cases. As a
minimum, connection cables between or within buildings should also have a
grounding connection: grounding wire or cable ducts. For connections inside
enclosures and machines, cables should be systematically fastened against a metal
plate. In order to maintain the correct protective effect, the following ratio should be
observed: distance between cables/radius of thickest cable > 5.
Rule no. 3
Only pairs used for analogue, digital and telecommunications signals may be
adjacent to each other in the same bundle or laid in the same cable group. Relays,
speed drives, supply and power circuits should be separated from the above pairs.
When installing variable speed drives, it is important to ensure that power
connections are clearly separated from data links. Whenever possible, a cable duct
should be reserved for power connections in enclosures.
Rule no. 4
The same connector should not be used for connecting different families, except for
relays, supply and power circuits. If the same connector is used for both analogue
and digital signals, these must be separated by a row of pins at the 0 V connection.
Rule no. 5
All unused conductors in a cable should be systematically connected to the chassis
ground at both ends, except for analogue cables. This provides a protective effect
with a factor of approximately five in HF.
Rule no. 6
Power cables do not need to be shielded if they are filtered. The power outputs of
variable speed drives must therefore be either shielded or filtered.
Electromagnetic Caging
Linking the grounding elements inside an enclosure or a small machine is essential
since these elements are directly accessible to electronic equipment. All the metal
structures of the bay will thus be interconnected. Equipotential connections for safety
purposes must be complemented by direct connections between all elements in the
machine or enclosure. Systematic use of a grid or cage at the back of the enclosure
for mounting all equipment is recommended.

Warning: most protective coatings have an insulating effect.

Installation
Protecting external connections to the equipment
Most of the problems encountered on-site are conduction related. It is essential that
all wiring connections outside enclosures or machines be protected.
A grounding strip or potential reference plate (PRP) will be defined for each
enclosure and each machine. All shielded cables and all wiring protection systems
outside that enclosure or machine should be connected to it. This PRP can be one
of the metal plates of the enclosure or its DIN cage. The PRP should always be
connected to the electromagnetic caging of the enclosure or machine and to that of
the equipment group. In plastic enclosures (not recommended), a DIN rail or
grounding terminal should be used.
Connecting shielded cables
The way in which shielded cables are connected directly determines the HF
protective effect. If the connection is made using a "pigtail", i.e. a single wire,
protection is no longer provided at HF levels. A shielded fixed connection through the
wall using a metal cable gland is the best solution, providing the paint is removed in
order to ensure good electrical contact. A jumper can also be used, to ensure contact
over at least 180°.
Using cable ducts
Cable ducts outside enclosures must be made of metal if over three meters long.
These ducts must have end-to-end electrical continuity and be directly connected to
the grounds of enclosures and machines using trunking joints or connection bars.
Any other cable should only be used in cases where no other solution is possible.
If a single duct is used, it must be no longer than 30 m if possible. Unshielded cables
must be fixed in the corners of the ducts as shown in the figure below.
Vertical separation in the duct avoids mixing incompatible cables. A metal cover on
signal half-ducts is recommended. It should be noted that a full metal cover on the
duct does not improve EMC.
Example: shielded digital connections less than 300 meters in length, without
analogue cables. As soon as the length calculated for an installation condition is no
longer sufficient (100 meters in the first example), the configuration's EMC must be
improved.
A vertical separation in the duct is used to avoid mixing incompatible cables. A metal
cover on the half-duct of signal cables limits the interference from signals.
The EMC conditions to be observed are thus:
b each half-duct is no more than 50 % full
b the separation is made of metal and in contact with the duct throughout its length
b the cover is in contact with the separation throughout its length.
Make allowance for possible future developments.

Connections between buildings
They have two characteristics which can result in risks for the installation:
b poor equipotentiality between the grounding elements of installations
b large loop areas between data cables and grounding elements.
Before installing and connecting a data cable between two buildings, it is essential to
check that the two ground connections of the buildings are interconnected.
All grounds which are simultaneously accessible must be connected to the same
ground connection, or at least to a set of interconnected ground connections.
This constraint is fundamental for the safety of personnel. The second risk related to
connections between buildings is the loop area between data cables and grounding
elements. This loop is particularly critical in the event of an indirect lightning strike on
the site. The overvoltages induced in these loops through indirect impact of lightning
are in the order of a hundred volts per square meter. In order to limit this risk, all
cables laid between two buildings must be duplicated by a large-gauge equipotential
connection (Ø 35 mm2).

Checking communication links in electrical devices
This section presents the general approach to implementing communication links
between Transparent Ready products: rigorously applying these principles makes it
possible to avoid a first source of errors and time lost due to communications that do
not work.
Refer to the product documentation for detailed information on configuration and
wiring.
RS 485 Modbus serial link
All products must be configured and wired identically.
Configuration: transmission speed at 19.2 kbauds, even parity.
Wiring: RS 485 two wires link, line adapter resistor and polarisation supply
depending on the product, the Bus+ and Bus- wires are not grounded, shields are
grounded.
Line termination: fit a termination resistor at the end of the daisy-chain.
Ethernet TCP/IP
Connect a PC to an EGX400 with a cross connected Ethernet cable.
Force PC Ethernet communication by setting an IP address and subnet mask that
are compatible with the workshop. Set EGX400 configuration (using Start >
Connections > TCP/IP Properties with Windows XP).
Check the Ethernet TCP/IP link with the EGX400 connected on the workshop
Intranet.
EGX400
b load the Web pages using WPG, the EGX400 configuration tool
b configure the serial ports
b configure the list of products connected, one by one
b connect a single product to EGX400 and check one device at a time
b check the EGX400 Web pages by sending voltage and current levels to the
Transparent Ready product.
Example: panelbuilders check the RS 485 and Ethernet transmission links and
measure them at the shop. This way they can issue a factory inspection report.
Final on-site inspection
Ethernet TCP/IP
To connect the EGX400 to the facility Intranet: the facility IT manager provides a
fixed IP address, a subnet mask and the address of the default gateway:
b fixed IP address: a unique address for each EGX400. It is "fixed" insomuch as the
IT system that automatically assigns IP addresses (the DHCP service) for each new
connection to the Intranet, e.g. on power up, does not have to assign it an available
address
b subnet mask: linked to the IP address, this number identifies the LAN segment
where the EGX400 is located
b default gateway: the address of a local IP router located on the same LAN segment
and that is used to send the traffic towards destinations located beyond this LAN
segment.
Checking the measurements in real life
Power up the electric switchboard in line with the applicable safety requirements and
check the values on the Web pages.
The complete measurement sequence is factory tested, all you need to test is the
power part of the MV or LV switchboard.

Modbus Serial Link
De facto industrial standard
Installation advice
0
DB108096
Modbus is a messaging protocol between Transparent Ready devices connected to
an RS 485 physical transmission bus. The industry’s serial de facto standard since
1979, Modbus continues to enable millions of automation devices to communicate.
The same communication functions are provided by serial links and Ethernet
TCP/IP networks.
DB108097
Modbus is a request/reply protocol offering services specified by function codes.
Every device connected to the Modbus network is user configured with an
identification number, called the Modbus address, from 1 to 247.
The EGX400 Web server simultaneously queries all devices with a message made
up of the target address, the request type, the function code, the location in the
device and the quantity of data, up to a maximum of 253 bytes.
Only a device that is configured with the corresponding address responds to the data
request.
Exchanges are performed at the EGX400's initiative only: this is the way Modbus
master-slave half duplex (alternating exchanges) communication works.
DB108098
The function codes can cover reading or writing data. In the standard Transparent
Ready range of systems for electric power distribution functions, no writing to open
circuit breaker is possible.
A software transmission error detection mechanism called CRC16 is used to ensure
that an erroneous message will be repeated and that only the one device will answer.
This query procedure followed by a response implies that the EGX400 does not
simultaneously have access to all of the data available from all of the products: the
server successively performs one transaction per device. This layout therefore leads
to restricting the number of products connected in order to retain response times that
are acceptable to the user.

Your Intranet and Transparent Ready
Your IT infrastructure handles cohabitation between software applications
Your company uses its IT infrastructure to run office applications, printing, backing
up data, for the corporate IT system, accounting, purchasing, ERP, for running
production installations, PLCs, MES, etc. Data cohabitation on the same
communication media does not give rise to any particular problem.
Application data transits an Ethernet LAN
The communication media used around the world is generally a wired Ethernet
network so that connections are available everywhere within office or industrial
facilities and in production shops.
Transparent Ready technology can also integrate into this Ethernet media.
On the same Ethernet LAN, Transparent Ready uses the same services as your
Intranet
If your company also has an Intranet internal communication network for exchanging
e-mails, for sharing the data available on Web servers, you will be using a widely
used and standardised communication protocol: TCP/IP.
The TCP/IP communication protocol supports Web services that are in widespread
use like HTTP for accessing Web pages, SMTP, e-mail messaging, among other
services.
Transparent Ready also uses TCP/IP and Web services since 1996.

Security
Well informed, more efficient staff members, kept safe from electrical hazards
There is no longer any need to enter electric power distribution areas. As standard,
no commands can be sent to electric power devices, it is only possible to view data:
this is the condition to be met to ensure that company staff get immediate and
significant gains from the new system. Completely safe collaborative work becomes
possible, whether for electricians, maintenance or production technicians or
managers.
Depending on how sensitive the data is, the IT manager will assign user access
rights.
Marginal impact on LAN maintenance
The company's IT manager has the technical characteristics available for adding and
supervising devices on the LAN. The very low data traffic levels, the use of
technology that is not affected by viruses and the use of world-wide standards means
that there is no need for any bespoke investment spending to preserve LAN
performance levels or to protect against additional security problems (viruses,
hackers, etc.).
DB108100
Fostering responsibility in outside partners
Depending on the company's security policy, it becomes possible to get the support
of the usual partners involved in the electrical field: contractors, facility managers,
panelbuilders, system integrators or Schneider Electric service can all assist and
analyse electrical data remotely.
The EGX400 Web server can regularly send data by e-mail or Web pages can be
viewed remotely using suitable techniques.

Traditionally and for many years now in
electrical distribution applications,
monitoring and control systems have been
centralised and based on Scada
(supervisory, control and data acquisition)
automation systems.

From centralised systems to smart equipment groups
Deciding to invest in such systems, described a 3 in the figure below, was really
reserved for high demanding installation, because either they were big power
consumers, or their process was very sensitive to any lack of power quality.
Based on automation technology, such systems were very often designed, customised
by a system integrator, and then delivered on-site. However the initial cost, the skills
needed to correctly operate such a system, and the cost of upgrades to follow the
evolutions of the network may have discouraged potential users to invest.
Then, based on a dedicated solution for electricians, the other approach described
as 2 is much better suited to the specific needs of an electrician network and really
increases the payback from such a system. However, due to its centralised
architecture, the entry level of such a solution may still appear high.
On some site type 2 and type 3 systems can cohabit, providing the most accurate
information to the electrician when needed.
Nowadays, the new concept of Transparent Ready power equipment, described as
1 , has come. Taking the opportunity offered by Web technologies, it has become
a truly affordable solution for most users. Moreover the site owner can invest
gradually in more sophisticated monitoring systems.
A powerful capability offered by the Transparent Ready solution is that the level 1
system directly addresses the needs of specialised staff members, whether the
user's electrical technicians or facility management or the manufacturer’s service
personnel.
Level 1 can then be considered as a stepping stone for moving on to level 2 or
3 , due to the ability of these solutions to co-exist at a single facility.

Only levels 2 or 3 allow control actions in line with safe software procedures
developed by system integrators.
Level 1 Web pages display a selected set of electrical data available from
Transparent Ready products.
Note: all other data can be accessed using any device that runs the Modbus TCP/IP protocol
(router capability) simultaneously with the ability to display Web pages (server capability).
Cohabitation between level 1 and level 3 architectures
The Transparent Ready solution truly innovates: a Scada system can operate the
electrical equipment and maintenance staff can simultaneously take advantage of
the measurements displayed on the EGX400 Web pages.
As the Scada system detects a global alarm from the process, the operator, who is
not an electrician, can ask the electrical staff to check the problem from their own
dedicated power equipment Web pages.
DB108102
Intelligent equipment based architecture
This new architecture has appeared recently due to Web technology capabilities,
and can really be positioned as an entry point into monitoring systems.
Based on Web technologies, it makes the most of standard communication services
and protocols and license-free software.
Access to electricity data can be gained from anywhere on site, and electrical staff
can gain a lot in efficiency.
Expertise in electro-technical fields is not needed, merely common sense to react to
the quantities displayed by the Web system.
Openness to the Internet is also offered for off-site services, e.g. contractors, facility
managers, panelbuilders or Schneider Electric service.
Setting up these systems is typically a speciality performed by panelbuilders used to
integrating LV and MV power equipment with metering and protection devices.
No system integrator skills and no software development are needed.

Complementarity between electric power distribution and industrial
automation systems
Transparent Ready is the Schneider Electric solution that is common to both electric
power distribution fields and industrial automation systems in order to distribute data
from Ethernet TCP/IP and Web service technologies.
This advanced communication solution is available in our products, for use in
different areas:
b electric power distribution:
v simple monitoring of essential electric power measurements and/or
v control and monitoring functions on the electric power network for facilities that,
for example, require automatic network reconfiguration functions like oil refineries do
b industrial automation systems: real time communications and data sharing
without intermediaries, between the various applications that make up an industrial
process and diagnosis on PLCs and other automation systems connected to
Ethernet, such as man-machine interfaces, speed drives, etc.
ION-E
In electric power distribution applications, the PowerLogic range of solutions fulfils
specialised electric power distribution measurement functions with Circuit Monitor
and Power Meter products.
Numerous other specialist electric protection, motor control, UPS management
systems, etc. also fulfil additional electric power network measurement functions and
also add diagnosis functions for the corresponding power devices: asynchronous
motors, transformers, etc.
Example: Altivar speed drives provide indications on a motor's thermal condition.
Some of them can simultaneously perform commands affecting power devices,
circuit breakers, motors, at the request of the control and monitoring systems.
Example: Sepam, Micrologic, Altivar, etc.
This combination offers the prospect of useful expansion to systems at facilities
where electric power distribution and consumption needs demand automatic
decision making based on relevant electrical measurements.

The industrial communication standard: Ethernet TCP/IP
The recognition of Ethernet TCP/IP, both in organisations and on the Internet, has
made it today's communication standard. Its widespread use is leading to a reduction
in connection costs, increased performance and the addition of new functions, which
all combine to ensure its durability.
Ethernet TCP/IP meets the connection requirements of every application:
b twisted pair copper cables for simplicity and low cost
b optical fiber for immunity to interference and for long distances
b communication redundancy, inherent to the IP protocol
b radio or satellite systems to overcome wiring restrictions
b remote point-to-point access via the telephone network or the Internet for the cost
of a local call.
With its high speed, the network no longer limits application performance. Network
architecture can evolve without difficulty and products remain compatible, ensuring
long-term system durability.
Transparent Ready solutions use Ethernet and TCP/IP in a way that is fully
compatible with any other applications using the same Ethernet wiring system and
TCP/IP technology, thanks to its total conformity to applicable international
standards.
Example: there is no need for a dedicated Ethernet cable for Transparent Ready
solutions, just use the existing Ethernet infrastructure.
Ethernet TCP/IP communication services: Modbus on TCP/IP
Transparent Ready products allow communication on a single Ethernet
TCP/IP network
In addition to universal Internet services (HTTP, BOOTP/DHCP, FTP, etc.), the
Transparent Ready device communication services designed for use in industrial
applications include, depending on the devices:
b Modbus TCP messaging
b SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) network administration
b NTP (Network Time Protocol) time synchronisation
b notification of events via e-mail with SMTP.
Modbus TCP/IP messaging: now a standard Web service
Modbus has been the de facto standard for serial link protocols in industry since
1979. It is used for communications by millions of devices. As a result of this success,
the IANA institute (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) has assigned the port TCP
502 which is reserved for the Modbus protocol.
Modbus and Modbus TCP are recognised by IEC 61158 international standard as a
fieldbus. They are also compliant with the "Chinese National Standard" managed by
ITEI. Visit the Web site at www.modbus-ida.org.
Modbus can thus be used for exchanging automation data on both Ethernet TCP/IP
and the Internet, as well as for all other applications (file exchanges, Web pages,
e-mail, etc.).
Because of the simplicity of its protocol and the high speed of 100 Mbits/s Ethernet,
Modbus TCP/IP delivers excellent performance.
See www.modbus-ida.com.
An identical application protocol is used for Modbus serial link or Modbus on Ethernet
TCP/IP: this therefore makes it possible to route messages between both types of
network without changing protocol.
As Modbus is implemented above the TCP/IP layer, users can benefit from IP
routing, which enables devices located anywhere in the world to communicate.
Schneider Electric offers an entire range of Web servers and routers for
interconnecting a Modbus TCP/IP network to an existing Modbus serial link network.
When accessing product data on the Modbus serial link, using Modbus messaging,
the servers and routers have no added value other than translating addresses,
encapsulating and un-encapsulating Modbus frames in TCP/IP protocol, whatever
function code is used (transparent data access).

Our servers and routers thus provide products on the Modbus serial link with
Ethernet bandwidth and a multi-master operating capability. Up to ten TCP sockets
can be simultaneously processed on EGX400 server for sharing between users with
browser and control systems.
One TCP socket then has to be set up to access the various Modbus devices
connected to EGX400 and their registers.
This latter function is also effective when the Modbus master is connected directly to
one of the two Modbus serial link ports on the servers and routers (configured this
way).
Example: multi-master operating capability means that the user can display the Web
pages with their own browser, while another user displays the same or different Web
pages from the same server and that a digital control system can access the same
data from the same or different connected products on this server.
Note: a router has no embedded Web pages (see EGX100) as a Web server is not only a router
but also embeds Web pages.
Modbus TCP/IP characteristics
Maximum size of data:
b read: 125 words or registers
b write: 100 words or registers.
EGX400 Web server mechanisms for dynamic reading via the Web
Note: EGX400 uses a fixed IP address.
EGX400 uses HTML language for serving the Web pages containing dynamic values
associated with the products on the Modbus serial link, and is therefore compatible
with all Web browsers. This mechanism is totally transparent to users who only need
their IP address or domain name.
When the Web page is viewed (action 1 , receiving an HTTP request from the Web
client), the EGX400 analyses the contents of the requested Web page, detects any
"<PL>" tag, then executes the Modbus services required for reading the dynamic
variables (actions 2 and 3 ), fills in the HTML page accordingly and sends it all
back as if it were a static page (action 4 ). The HTML page is displayed on the
browser screen.
The page is automatically updated by the browser every five seconds.
"<PL>" tag
The dynamic data in the page uses a "<PL>" tag inserted in the code which specifies
the characteristics of the Modbus service required for finding the value of this
variable in the Transparent Ready products connected to the EGX400.
Characteristics are Modbus function code, Modbus address, register no., LSB order,
unit.
Security
Stakes and risk classification
Information system security is intended to protect against information system related
risks. These risks are dependent on a number of factors:
b threats made against the devices to protect
b device vulnerabilities
b device sensitivity which is a combination of different factors: confidentiality,
integrity, availability.
This is why the equation is generally expressed as:
Risk = Threat x Vulnerability x Sensitivity.
The main effective threats that one may face comprise:
b the user: the vast majority of IT security related problems are user related (through
carelessness or maliciousness)
b malicious programs: a program that is designed to damage or abuse system
resources is installed whether by accident or maliciously on the system, opening the
door to intrusion or modifying data
b intrusion: persons succeed in accessing data or programs that they are not
supposed to access
b accidents (theft, fire, water damage): a bad move or malicious action that leads to
a loss of equipment and/or data.
Generally, IT system managers have implemented security procedures and
equipment.
Example: identifying persons authorised to use the IT infrastructure, firewall, DMZ,
etc.

Specific security risks on Ethernet Modbus TCP/IP
b Ethernet TCP/IP is a universal communication network that is familiar and
accessible to a huge number of users
b the use of Ethernet TCP/IP for Transparent Ready products enables external
connection without the need for any interface.
Main risks:
b overflow of multiple "PING" requests with the ICMP protocol to create a denial of
service to the module
b reading/modification of Web server pages with the FTP protocol
b modification of variables in Transparent Ready products by using Modbus TCP/IP
protocol.
Minor risks:
b virus risks are extremely limited at industrial system level, as they are based on
well known widespread operating systems
b increase in traffic on Ethernet: as the Modbus TCP/IP messaging traffic is limited
as regards message size and frequency (no permanent traffic, no printer traffic, only
on requests from few users), this can be neglected.
These risks must be dealt with at each level:
b possibility of using a router as access manager to the lower levels, by filtering the
IP addresses and authorised communication protocols
b set up an internal security policy, ensuring that only authorised persons can
connect to the network locally. Use the authentication, password and IP address
filtering functions available at control system product level.
Example: EGX400 case. Three different types of users can access the data through
dedicated passwords: the administrator, the user authorised to modify some basic
settings, the read-only user.
Means of access to electrical data from Intranet/Internet
Intranet
The Transparent Ready solution is primarily dedicated to use via Intranet, even if it
remains possible, under certain conditions and under an access control, to gain
device access over the Internet.
Internet
Internet access to a Transparent Ready device must necessarily be thought by IT
systems managers, depending on the security procedures applicable within their
organisation.
Medium sized company
Many small or medium sized companies, located in an office or industrial building
already have an Intranet for office computing, accounting or production management
purposes, for example.
From the moment that one or more PCs are networked, Transparent Ready electrical
devices can also be connected and make their Web pages available.
These companies have limited IT systems infrastructures.
The facility is typically connected to Internet through a provider with a connection via
an ordinary phone line or, as is more and more often the case, via an ADSL
broadband line and an intelligent modem.
The provider assigns the facility a fixed IP address that is therefore accessible from
the outside world. To access the Transparent Ready device from Internet via the
facility's intranet, as is the case for example for a duty agent at home, the modem is
generally able to create one or more VPN (Virtual Private Network) connections
when the staff member or service provider establishes the remote connection. This
remotely accessed modem, the RAS Remote Access Server modem, makes it
possible to authenticate persons wishing to access the electrical device at the time
when the procedure starting the VPN is run.
In addition, either a firewall is installed by the facility's IT systems manager or the
provider offers a firewall, thereby securing the data flows exchanged with the
Internet.
The firewall on the way into the facility Intranet must be configured to allow access
to the Web pages generated by the Transparent Ready devices (HTTP service).

Different solutions are possible:
b the IT manager can install a VPN server for roaming staff members who wish to
access a Transparent Ready device. In this case it is necessary to install a VPN client
on the PC. This is the preferred solution.
b using a firewall and reverse proxy application relays, it is possible to allow incoming
data access to Transparent Ready devices. The staff member can, using a domain
name, easily access EGX400 web pages. Incoming data flows are not however
always allowed, depending on the applicable security policy.
It is possible to create a DMZ if the EGX400 is not too far away geographically.
Other services
Setting the time
The EGX400 can have its time set by the Web NTP service which is generally
supported by a server in major companies.
Sending e-mail using the EGX400
It is necessary to grant the EGX400 permission to send e-mail messages, depending
on the way the company's SMTP services are secured.

of interface equipment.
EN 50160
Standard NF EN 50160 was created to characterise the quality of the voltage
supplied. This standard presents the various types of interference that can affect the
voltage supply to the customer's delivery point, depending on the waveform, voltage
level, frequency and unbalance in the case of a three-phase system. It therefore lists
the parameters to be monitored and the duration of any monitoring.
Ethernet address
A unique number that identifies the device on the Ethernet network, called a MAC
address.

Ethernet
A specification for local communication networks that employs cable as a passive
communication medium to interconnect different kinds of computers, data
processing products and office equipment at a local site. A local area network
communication protocol in widespread use and corresponding to standard 802.3 as
defined by the IEEE. All Macintosh computers and many PCs are provided with an
Ethernet 10/100 interface for quickly setting up a small scale LAN and also for
connecting to Internet via a cable or ADSL modem. The system's bandwidth is
10 Mbit/s (for normal Ethernet) and 100 Mbit/s (for Fast Ethernet) or 1000 Mbit/s (for
Gigabit Ethernet). A 10/100 interface exchanges data at a rate of 10 Mbit/s or
100 Mbit/s.
Fibre optics
A medium that uses light conducted through glass or plastic fibres for data
transmission.
Firewall
A computer system that allows the selective transit of data between an internal
network and a public one as well as neutralising attempts to penetrate the internal
network originating from the public network. The term "firewall" can refer to a number
of security mechanisms. It may be a router (filtering router), a station equipped with
two network interfaces (an Internet bastion) or a combination of both of these two
systems.
Firmware
Operating system and/or program within a device.
Lead / Lag
Inductive/capacitive current product's lagging/leading power factor.
Multipoint communications
A method of communication in which a single device can communicate with multiple
devices.
NEMA standards
Property characteristics adopted as standard by the National Electrical
Manufacturers Association.
Network
A group of computing devices that are connected to each other by communication
lines to share information and resources.
NTP "Network Time Protocol" (RFC 1305)
NTP (Network Time Protocol) is used to synchronise the time of a client or server
device from a time server. Depending on the network used, it provides the following
time precision based on the UTC:
b several milliseconds on a local area network (LAN)
b several tens of milliseconds on a wide area network (WAN).
PLC - Programmable logic controller
Programmable logic controller (PLC) - a solid state control system that has a user
programmable memory for storage instruction to implement specific functions such
as I/O control logic, timing, counting, arithmetic and data manipulation.
Protocol
Standardised procedure for establishing a communication link between devices that
is based on such elements as word structure or word length.
PSTN Public Switched Telephone Network
Term for the entire, world-wide telephone network.
RJ45
An 8-pin network connector, in widespread use on Ethernet networks. RJ11 is a four
contact connector used in telephone applications.
