The Company, which creates new references everyday, everywhere, designed the Intelligent Electronic Device to coincide with its consistent high quality, high performing global offer.

The BiTRONICS M572 dual line dual bus compact Intelligent Electronic Device (IED) effectively monitors electrical parameters for 2 full sets of 3-phase voltages and currents, tests and then records these anomalies. These events are referenced to a time standard, and with its multiple communication channels the M572 can serve this information to multiple sources instantly and simultaneously, all with the intent of preempting catastrophic events and meeting full user specific requirements.

The BiTRONICS M572 provides fast and precise electrical measurements, fault records, event records and trend logs. The monitoring of status inputs and the control of relay outputs can also be accommodated. This information and control can be provided to multiple clients or masters simultaneously through various protocols and multiple physical links.

“By covering two lines or feeders, the BiTRONICS M572 provides an economical solution for basic measurement to SCADA data, while also providing advanced recording and communications functions not found in simple measurement devices.” said Damien Tholomier, Automation Products Marketing Director, AREVA T&D’s Automation Business Unit.
