Empower Plus

The Empower Plus from Trinity is an easy-to-use, cost effective electrical power meter that offers all the basic measurement capabilities required to monitor an electrical installation. In addition to measuring the instantaneous parameters, it also measures all three energies, thus helping to measure energy costs.

Over the basic metering, it provides RS485 port supporting MODBUS RTU protocol, THD measurements, Phase angle, Unbalance % for Voltage and Current, On Hour & Run Hour, Power Interruption recording. These parameters are available over RS485 only.

The CT Primary, Secondary and PT ratios are site selectable.


  • Class 1.0s accuracy as per IS13779
  • Microcontroller Based
  • Seven Segment LED Based Display
  • Measures all important Electrical Parameters
  • Compact 96 X 96 DIN enclosure
  • RS485 port for connection to SCADA/EMS
