Continental Control Systems announced today that it will introduce their new compact OEM revenue-grade PV Meter Module. "Meter on a Board" features an innovative compact single board design (measuring 2.75" x 2.5") that can accommodate either a single or three phase service with either board-mounted or externally mounted CTs.
Continuing the quality and value that Continental Control Systems is known for, the module has the full functionality of a traditional meter in a smaller package without the AC power supply.
The meters compact design significantly reduces the time for factory integration into an inverter or gateway, and is a fraction of the cost of standard meters, which may very well be disruptive to all meters used in PV installations.
With many options available, such as conformal coating, C12.20 certification, enclosure options, board mounted CTs, DIN rail and environmental requirements, the "Meter on a Board can be designed as a proprietary revenue-grade PV meter module for OEM manufacturers.
