Central Control Server, ETC Power Control Energy Metering & Third Party Energy Metering

Hello all,

What are all the ETC equipment that allows me to collect energy usage data with the P-CCS.

Are third party energy meter compatible? If yes, what are the protocols and specs I should be looking for?

Many thanks,

    You will need a P-CCS running software 4.0 or later.  You can do calculated and measured power usage from ETC products.  Things like a Sensor AF rack or Sensor IQ can provide that information back to Paradigm.  Something like an Echo Feed Through Panel would be calculated.

    • Measured energy: The energy that is used by your power controlling products such as CEM3. The energy is measured directly by these controller products and then reported to Conductor.
    • Calculated energy: The energy that is used by all of the individual loads in your system that are not controlled by a measured energy power controller. This energy is calculated based on properties that you enter in LightDesigner for each channel in your system.

      System Components

      • Measured Energy Controllers
      • Sensor 3 Advanced Features (AF) systems (Available with CEM3 v1.6.1 release and later)
      • Sensor IQ, Echo Relay Panel (ERP) Mains and EchoDIN Calculated Energy Controllers:
      • Paradigm Architectural Control Processor (P-ACP) and Paradigm Software v4.0.0 or later
      • Required Network Controllers
      • Paradigm Central Control Server (P-CCS hardware with front display and Paradigm Software v4.0.0or later)
      • Net3 Conductor (Conductor hardware with front display and Net3 Conductor Software v3.0.0 or later)
  • The EchoDIN range is a new one for me. Is the Relay module capable of doing measured energy?
