Amperis introduces a new standard in panel mounted power metering. The Shark® 200 metering system is an ultra-compact power metering device providing industry leading revenue metering functionality combined with advanced data-logging, power quality, communication and I/O traditionally found only in high performance and high cost systems. This product is designed to incorporate advanced features in a cost eective, small package for large scale, low cost deployment within an electrical distribution system.
The Shark® 200 meter is equipped with EIG's exclusive V-Switch™ technology. This technology allows users to upgrade and add features by using communication
commands as needed, even after the meter is installed.

Traceable Watt-Hour Test Pulse for Accuracy Verication
The Shark® 200 device is a traceable revenue meter. It contains a utility grade test pulse allowing power providers to verify and conrm that the meter is performing to its rated accuracy. This is an essential feature required of all billing grade meters.
The Shark®200 meter offers the capability of having 2 Megabytes of data-logging to be used for historical trends, limit alarms, I/O changes and sequence of events. The unit has a real-time clock that allows for time stamping of all the data in the instrument when log events are created.
System Events Log
To protect critical billing information, the meter records and logs the following with a time stamp:
I/O Change Log
Limits Alarms and Control Capability (V4 Option)
The unit records up to 512 samples per cycle for a voltage sag or swell or a current fault event. The unit provides the pre- and postevent recording capability shown in the table below. Waveform records are programmable to the desired sampling rate. V5 provides up to 3 Megabytes storage and V6 provides a total of 4 Megabytes.
The meter's advanced DSP design allows Power Quality triggers to be based on a 1 cycle updated RMS. Up to 170 events can be stored until the memory fills. The meter stores waveform data in a first-in/first-out circular buffer to insure data is always recording.
|Samples per Cycle||Pre Event Cycles||Post Event Cycles||Max Waveform per Event||Number of Stored Events|
Note: Sampling rate based on 60Hz systems. For 50Hz systems, multiply by 1.2.
The unit uniquely offers a waveform scope to view the real time waveform for voltage and current. Waveform scope allows the meter to be used as a basic oscilloscope throughout a power system.
Independent CBEMA Log Plotting
The meter stores an independent CBEMA log for magnitude and duration of voltage events. This allows a user to quickly view total surges, total sags and duration without retrieving waveform data.
Harmonic Recording to the 40th Order
The Shark® 200 meter provides advanced harmonic analysis to the 40th order for each voltage and current channel in real time. Using the
stored waveforms, harmonic analysis is available to the 255th order.
The Shark® 200 meter provides two independent communication ports with advanced features.
Front Mounted IrDA Communication
Uniquely, the Shark® 200 meter also has an optical IrDA port, allowing you to program it with an IrDA-enabled laptop PC.
100BaseT ETHERNET AND WEB SERVER
Amperis Rapid Response™ Ethernet card allows for high speed Ethernet communication utilizing a 100BaseT protocol communicating with up to 12 connections with Modbus TCP. The card supports a static IP address and is treated like a node on the network. The Shark® 200 meter provides fast and reliable updates to HMI packages, SCADA and COM EXT download software. The Web Server allows access by almost all browsers over the Internet.
SHARK® 200T TRANSDUCER
This transducer version of the Shark® 200 meter does not include a display. The unit mounts directly to a DIN rail and provides an
RS485 Modbus or DNP 3.0 output and the expandable I/O.
SHARK® 200 M ETER ANSI AND DIN MOUNTING
The unit mounts directly in an ANSI C39.1 (4" Round form) or an IEC 92 mm DIN square form. This is perfect for new installations
and for existing panels. In new installations, simply use DIN or ANSI punches. For existing panels, pull out old analog meters
and replace them with the Shark® 200 meter. The meter uses standard voltage and current inputs so that CT and PT wiring does
not need to be replaced.
Traditionally, voltage recording meters were relegated to high cost metering or monitoring solutions. The Shark® 200
meter can be placed throughout an electrical distribution network. The meter provides one of the industry's lowest cost
methods of collecting voltage information within a Utility power distribution grid.
Low cost substation telemetry
The Shark® 200 meter allows you to log substation data over time with regard to electrical usage, demand, voltage, current, PF and many other parameters. This enables a complete analysis of the power system over time.
The Shark® 200 meter offers unequaled I/O expandability. Using the two universal option slots, the unit can easily be configured to accept new I/O cards even after installation. The unit auto-detects installed I/O option cards. Up to 2 cards of any type can be used per meter.
