World Energy Engineering Congress (WEEC) Product News for Continental Control Systems
Oct. 31- Nov. 1
Founded in 1995, Colorado-based Continental Control Systems specializes in electric power metering and monitoring equipment. The company’s solutions are designed to provide key electrical system measurements including power (kW) and energy (kWh) through a variety of communication protocols including BACnet®, Modbus®, and LonWorks® and as pulse outputs. Applications for the WattNode® meter and Accu-CT™ include building automation, LEED certification, tenant submetering, performance verification/evaluation/diagnostics, net metering, and energy management. All Continental Control Systems products are listed or recognized by Underwriters Laboratories Inc. for use in both the United States and Canada (cUL).
“Critical to efforts in monitoring and managing energy consumption in the United States and abroad are energy submetering solutions that are not only cost-effective and accurate, but provide increased ROI. To meet this need, we are excited to be highlighting our WattNode BACnet meter and Accu-CT current transformers at WEEC 2012, and to join other energy professionals from around the world as the conference celebrates its 35th anniversary.” ─ Cynthia A. Boyd, director of sales at Continental Control Systems
Continental Control Systems Featured Product Highlights at WEEC 2012
WattNode® BACnet® Energy Meter
Cost-Effective Energy and Power Meter Features Compact Design and Easy Installation
For building automation systems requiring the BACnet communications protocol, Continental Control Systems will be highlighting its cost-effective WattNode BACnet (MS/TP) energy and power meter at WEEC 2012. The BACnet WattNode meter complements the company’s Modbus® and LonWorks® meters, allowing almost any building automation system to seamlessly access electrical measurements including power, energy, voltage, current, and power factor. The most compact and cost-effective networkable energy meters on the market, all WattNode meters provide line-powered single and three phase, wye, or delta configurations up to 600 Vac and 6000 A. Supporting full self-discovery of the meter and all of its objects, the WattNode BACnet meter offers more than 50 electric power-related measurements, 64 addresses, and selectable baud rates up to 76.8 K.

Accu-CT™ Current Transformer
Revenue-Grade, High-Accuracy Split-Core Current Transformer
Designed to be used with any energy meter requiring a low-voltage input, the Accu-CT™ offers an unprecedented 0.5-percent linearity over a wide range of the rated current (1 to 120 percent of rated current). The Accu-CT complies with the linearity and accuracy requirements of ANSI C57.13 for tenant submetering and billing. Its low-voltage output (333 mVAC or 1 VAC at rated current) allows for installation without shorting blocks. The UL-recognized CT is available in rated currents of 5 A, 20 A, 50 A, 100 A, 200 A, and 250 A, with inside dimensions of 0.75 inches by 0.75 inches (20 mm by 20 mm), and features 8-foot, 22-AWG twisted-pair leads.
