Overview of meter features

The PowerLogic™ PM5500 / PM5600 / PM5700 power meters offer value for the demanding needs of your energy monitoring and cost management applications.

The PM5500 / PM5600 / PM5700 complies to Class 0.2S accuracy standards and feature high quality, reliability and affordability in a compact and easy to install format.

NOTE: Not all features are available on all models.


  • A fourth current input for direct and accurate measurement of neutral current, to help avoid device overload and network outage.

  • Two digital outputs for control and energy pulsing applications.

  • Four digital inputs/two digital inputs with input metering support for WAGES monitoring applications.

  • LED that can be used for energy pulsing applications.

Applicable for specific meter models:

  • Two Residual Current Measurement (RCM) inputs.

  • Two analog inputs to interpret an incoming analog current signal from transducers and provide the resulting scaled value.

  • Low-voltage DC control power.

Display and user interface

  • Onboard webpages for displaying real-time, logged data and waveform capture information using a web browser.

  • Multiple language support: The back-lit anti-glare display screen can be switched to display meter information in one of the supported languages (on models with a display screen).

  • Graphical display of harmonics and phasor diagrams on models with an integrated or optional remote display.

  • QR codes with embedded data for viewing meter information using Meter Insights.


  • Extensive alarming options like unary, digital, standard, logic, custom, and disturbance alarms.

  • The ability to send emails with alarm information.


  • Dual Ethernet switched ports allow fast Ethernet interconnection to other PM5500 / PM5600 / PM5700 meters using only one IP switch.

  • Ethernet gateway functionality, allowing a Modbus master using Modbus TCP to communicate through the meter to downstream serial devices using Modbus RTU.

  • Support for a variety of Ethernet protocols, such as Modbus TCP, BACnet/IP, EtherNet/IP and DNP3. All the Ethernet protocols can be used at the same time.

  • Enhanced Modbus security using TCP/IP filtering to set the specific IP addresses that are permitted to access the meter.

Measurements and logging

  • 4-quadrant, Class 0.2S accurate energy metering.

  • Present, last, predicted and peak (maximum) demand using a selection of demand calculation methods.

  • Highly accurate 1-second measurements.

  • Onboard data logging support for up to 14 selectable parameters.

  • Complete harmonic distortion metering, recording and realtime reporting, up to the 63rd harmonic for all voltage and current inputs.

  • Recording of each new minimum and new maximum value.

Revenue and tariffs

  • Multiple tariff support (8 tariffs) for monitoring energy usage.

  • Models with features to help you comply with revenue and billing standards.
