Continental Control Systems Featured Product Highlights at NFMT 2013 (The National Facility Management and Technology Expo):
WattNode® Electric Power Meters — Now With a Revenue-Grade Option
At NFMT 2013, Continental Control Systems will be showcasing its recently announced line of revenue-grade electric power meters, the WattNode® Revenue. These meters are designed for use in applications requiring revenue-grade accuracy. The WattNode Revenue meters meet the accuracy requirements of ANSI C12.1 and C12.20 Class 0.5, and support Modbus®, BACnet®, or LonTalk® communications protocol or a pulse output. This compact and cost-effective energy and power metering solution complements the company’s complete line of high-accuracy, revenue-grade current transformers (CTs) to be released in Q2 2013 (see details below).
All WattNode energy meters provide line-powered single and three phase, wye, or delta configurations up to 600 Vac and loads to 6000 Amps. The newest member of the family, the WattNode BACnet meter, supports full self-discovery of the meter and all of its objects, offering more than 50 electric power-related measurements, 64 addresses, and selectable baud rates up to 76.8K.
The WattNode Revenue meters support all the major BAS communication protocols, meet the accuracy requirements of ANSI C12.1 and C12.20 Class 0.5, and are designed for 120/208/240 Vac or 277/480 Vac applications. Each meter is calibrated using NIST-traceable equipment following the procedures specified by the ANSI C12 metering standards, and is supplied with a certificate of calibration. In addition to revenue-grade, bidirectional energy (kWh) metering, the networkable WattNode Revenue meters provide dozens of additional measurements: bidirectional power, demand, peak demand, reactive power, voltage, current, power factor, and line frequency.

CTL and CTBL Series Revenue-Grade, Split-Core Current Transformers
Available in the second quarter of this year and a highlight at NFMT 2013 is Continental Control Systems’ new line of revenue-grade, split-core current transformers (CTs). The CTL and CTBL lines of CTs provide IEEE C57.13 Class 0.6 or 1.2 revenue-grade accuracies together with a UL listing for energy management equipment in accordance with UL 916 and CSA C22.2 No. 610010-1. The result is current transformers for use on loads up to 6000A that combine the ease of installation of an opening current transformer with the accuracy normally associated with solid-core current transformers. With their 333.33 mVac output, they are an ideal companion to the WattNode® Revenue meter for revenue-grade electric power metering applications. The CTL current transformers have a 1.25-inch opening and the CTBL have various opening sizes up to 8 by 24 inches.
Editorial Resource: Additional Product Information
“We are excited to once again be a part of NFMT, an event that showcases the latest products and technologies to help facility management professionals run their facilities more cost effectively. Now that we offer the WattNode energy meter with all of the major BAS protocols, including Modbus, LonTalk, and now BACnet, we are truly the low-cost metering solution to all the energy management systems.”
