Product Description

The Paladin Advantage, 254-XZZ, is a programmable transducer which provides measurement isolation and conversion of all main electrical parameters into an industry standard DC output signal. The 254-XZZ can be used in single and three-phase balanced or unbalanced three or four-wire electrical systems. It has an accuracy of CL0.2 and includes RS485 Modbus RTU communications protocol and pulse/alarm output as standard.

The 254-XZZ is an accurate device for the conversion of all main electrical parameters into a Voltage or mA output and provides measurement, isolation and conversion of up to four user defined inputs and outputs. The device is supplied programmed to the users requirements but can be easily be reprogrammed to suit any application. Designed, developed and manufactured in the EU, with integrated microprocessor for exceptional waveform handling of distorted waveforms.

The 254-XZZ is ideal for low, medium and high voltage applications and provides a high protection against continuous and short circuit protection as well as galvanically isolated inputs and outputs.
