The Shark® 100 meter is equipped with EIG’s exclusive V-Switch™ technology. This technology allows users to upgrade and add features as needed by using communication commands, even after the meter is installed.

Available V-Switches:

  • V-Switch 1 – Volts and Amps Meter – Default
  • V-Switch 2 – Volts, Amps, kW, kVAR, PF, kVA, Freq.
  • V-Switch 3 – Volts, Amps, kW, kVAR, PF, kVA, Freq. kWh, kVAh, kVARh and DNP 3.0
  • V-Switch 4 – Volts, Amps, kW, kVAR, PF, kVA, Freq. kWh, kVAh, kVARh, %THD Monitoring, Limit Exceeded Alarms and DNP 3.0

Traceable Watt-Hour Test Pulse for Accuracy Verification

The Shark® 100 device is a traceable revenue meter. It contains a utility grade test pulse allowing power providers to verify and confirm that the meter is performing to its rated accuracy. This is an essential feature required of all billing grade meters.

Additional Features Include:

  • Utility Block and Rolling Average Demand
  • Adjustable Demand Profiles
  • Max and Min Available on Most Other Parameters
  • Voltage Provides Instantaneous Max and Min for Surge and Sag Limits

Advanced Communication Capability with IrDA Interface

The Shark® 100 meter provides two independent communication ports with advanced features.

Back Mounted Communication Port with KYZ Pulse

RS485 (Option 485P) – This port allows RS485 communication using Modbus or DNP 3.0 Protocols. Baud rates are from 9600 to 57.6k.

KYZ Pulse – In addition to the RS485, the meter also includes a KYZ pulse mapped to positive energy. This is a fixed energy pulse. Pulse values are:

Front Mounted IrDA Communication

Uniquely, the Shark® meter also has an optical IrDA port, allowing the unit to be set up and programmed using a remote laptop PC without need for a communication cable. To configure the meter, just point at it with an IrDA-equipped PC.

Rugged and Safe Voltage and Current Inputs

The Shark® 100 meter is ruggedly designed for harsh electrical applications in both high voltage and low voltage power systems. This is especially important in Power Generation, Utility Substation and Critical User applications. The structural and electrical design of this meter was developed based on the recommendations and approval of many of our utility customers.

High Isolation Universal Voltage Inputs

Voltage inputs allow measurement of up to 416 Volts Line to Neutral and 721 Volts Line to Line. This insures proper meter safety when wiring directly to high voltage systems. One unit will perform to specification on 69 Volt, 120 Volt, 230 Volt, 277 Volt and 347 Volt power systems.

Short Circuit Safe Current Inputs

power meter shark 100

Current inputs use a unique dual input method:
Method One – CT Lead Pass Through. The CT Lead passes directly through the meter without any physical termination on the meter. This insures that the meter cannot be a point of failure on the CT circuit. This is preferable to utility users when sharing relay class CTs. No Burden is added to the secondary CT circuit. Method Two – Current "Gills." This unit additionally provides ultrarugged termination pass-through bars, allowing the CT leads to be terminated on the meter. The Shark® meter's stud-based design insures that your CTs will not open in a fault condition.

Easy to Use and Install

From user interface to mechanical construction, the Shark® 100 Meter was designed to be easy and intuitive, so an installer with minimal meter experience and training can easily install and use this product.

  • Easy to use faceplate programming
  • PC setup
  • Phasor diagram showing wiring status
  • Auto scroll feature
  • Analog style % of Load Bar
  • Shallow panel depth
  • Color coordinated voltage and current inputs

Shark® 100 meter ANSI and DIN Mounting

The unit mounts directly in an ANSI C39.1 (4" round form) or an IEC 92mm DIN square form. This is perfect for new installations and for existing panels. In new installations, simply use DIN or ANSI punches.

  • Perfect for switchgear panel direct retrofits panel
  • Mounts in only 3.5" panel depth
  • Uses minimal panel space
  • Use standard CT or PT wiring
