Utilizing EIG's multi-session solution, the DNP 3.0 Ethernet provides up to 5 simultaneous connections of DNP 3.0 in addition to 7 Modbus sessions (per card) and full customizable Web Server capabilities. Using two separate Ethernet cards allows users to send data to multiple networks from the same meter. Each card has its own unique IP address and MAC address. This is useful for data sharing conventions, utility check metering and network security applications.

DNP 3.0 is used extensively by the Power Utility industry worldwide to delivery power data to SCADA systems for controlling and managing electrical power transmission and distribution. With DNP Ethernet, the Shark® 200 meter is ideal for providing telemetry for complex automation and control solutions.

Additional new features of the Shark® 200 meter include:

  • MV90 compatibility
  • Frequency measurement accuracy of up to 0.001 Hz
  • Multiple real time clock synchronizing methods that ensure accurate load profiling
  • Improved communication port selections and control functions
