Multitek M560 Multifunction Transducer


The M560 PowerSig is a complete 1 phase or 3
phase multifunction AC power transducer,
providing up to 3 analogue outputs and the
option of RS485 communication port. Most of the
parameters measured by PowerSig can be
assigned to the analogue outputs.

* Phase Voltage (V)
* Line Voltage (V)
* Phase Current (I)
* Frequency (Hz)
* Active Power per phase (W)
* System Active Power (W)
* Reactive Power per phase (VAr)
* System Reactive Power (VAr)
* Apparent Power per phase (VA)
* System Apparent Power (VA)
* Import Active Energy (W.h)
* Export Active Energy (W.h)
* Import Reactive Energy (VAr.h)
* Export Reactive Energy (VAr.h)
* Apparent Energy (VA.h)
* Ampere Energy (A.h)
* Power Factor per phase (P.F.)
* System Power Factor (P.F.)
* Amp Demand (Ad)
* Watt Demand (Wd)
* V A Demand (VAd)
* Maximum Amp Demand (Max Ad)
* Maximum Watt Demand Import (Max Wd)
* Maximum Watt Demand Export (Max Wd)
* Maximum VA Demand (Max VAd)
* Neutral Current

Up-to 3 fully isolated analogue outputs are available. Most of the parameters measured can be assigned to the outputs. Outputs can be either DC mA or DC volts. If PowerSig is purchased without the option of RS485 the user must specify which parameter is required for each output when ordering.


PowerSig uses RS485 Modbus protocol. This enables remote reading and programming of the PowerSig via a host computer. The RS485 allows up to 32 PowerSigs to be connected in parallel, allowing them to be used with PC, PLC, RTU, Data loggers and Scada programs. The PowerSig’s communication port is auto-configurable meaning that when connected to an existing Modbus network it will automatically set Baud rate, Parity and Stop bits. A red LED is provided to indicate power is present, and the unit is communicating correctly.


The following can be programmed via the RS485 port: CT and VT ratios, assigning parameters to outputs, pulse duration, relay divisor.

An option of pulsed output via a relay is offered. The pulsed output can be assigned to W.h, Var.h (import or export), A.h or VA.h. Optionally the relay can also be used as a control relay.
