Versatile Power Quality Metering with Logging and Flexible Communications
The Multilin™ EPM 7000P is a versatile power quality meter offering that can be used for a wide range of high accuracy revenue and power quality applications for both Utility and Industrial customers.
Along with high accuracy and logging capabilities, the EPM 7000P provides flexible and customizable optional input/output (I/O) configurations (relay, status, and analog output) along with a variety of communication options (Modbus, Level 2 DNP3, GE EGD and IEC 61850) as well as a web server for easy system integration and communications. The EPM 7000P provides users with logging of accurate power quality and event information; and limit alarm triggers; allowing users to analyze historical trends and perform post fault investigations.
The EPM 7000P is also an enhanced, direct retrofit upgrade replacement for the EPM 7000 and is also available in a transducer version without display (EPM 7000PT).
Enhanced Revenue and Power Quality Metering
The EPM 7000P has been designed with features to satisfy both revenue and power quality metering for utility substation and industrial applications.
Accurate Revenue Energy Metering
The EPM 7000P provides several features to support accurate Revenue Energy metering including: an Energy Test Pulse; ANSI C12.20 0.1% and IEC 62053-22 CL 0.2S Accuracy Class certification; Time of Use; CT/PT Compensation.
This allows the EPM 7000P the flexibility and capability to be installed either as a utility or industrial device to ensure accurate readings and assist with reconciliation of energy consumption.
Multifunction Metering & Power Quality Monitoring
The EPM 7000P can provide a total picture usage and power quality as different points within a power distribution network on critical infrastructure such as data centers, allowing users to make power related decisions quickly and effectively.
Extensive Logging Capability
The EPM 7000P provides up to 128MB of memory for logging.
Through upgradeable Software Options, the memory can be upgraded as requirements change from a multifunction meter with no logging to a logging capability up to 128MB.
The logging capability of the EPM 7000P provides:
System Events Log
To protect critical information captured by the EPM 7000P, the meter records and logs the following System Events with a time stamp to log and track:
Input/Output (I/O) Change Log
Limit Alarms and Control Capability
Extensive Communications and I/O Cards
The EPM 7000P provides two universal option slots for communications and/or I/O. The unit can be easily configured to accept new I/O cards even after installation by auto-detecting installed I/O option cards. Up to 2 cards of can be used for communications and or I/O per meter providing a range of integration possibilities.
Along with I/O expandability the EPM 7000P can integrate with many different systems, using multiple standardized protocols such as Modbus RTU/ASCII/TCP, Level 2 DNP3 and IEC 61850. Expandable communications cards allows customization for system requirements at time of purchase as well as in the future if requirements change.

EPM 7000PT Transducer Option
The EPM 7000P is available in a Transducer Option (EPM 7000PT). The EPM 7000PT is ideal for use in applications where a meter display or front port is not required and/or there are mounting/installation constraints in terms size or location within a switchgear cabinet or enclosure. The EPM 7000PT Transducer option also provides a more economical alternative to the EPM 7000P when a display is not required and there are only communications requirements.
Multilin Meter Enclosure
Expanding existing switchgear or installing new metering capability can be challenging due to space limitations, downtime and installation and equipment costs. GE's Multilin Meter Enclosure is a pre-wired configured, economical solution for both retrofit expansions and small scale meter installations that allows the expansion of existing switchgear capability without expensive and time-consuming design.
When ordered as a meter option the enclosure provides a factory pre-wired, installation-ready metering solution that further drives energy cost savings, by enabling the measurement of key energy usage information along multiple metering points for new or existing systems.
Ordering the enclosure is simple when selected as an option during meter configuration, ensuring correct pre-wired meter-compatible delivery.
