Wireless energy sensor

Part of PowerLogic

Introducing PowerTag®, a Class 1 wireless power sensor that measures energy and power in real-time. With alerts sent directly to your smartphone in the event of downtime, it enables you to make sure your business runs smoothly whilst staying fully connected.

Energy sensor that can communicate wirelessly via a gateway

Make your electrical panel smarter

PowerTag Energy is an energy sensor that monitors and accurately measures current, voltage, power, power factor, energy, and wirelessly communicate these data via a gateway. Use energy more efficiently and economically on all electrical loads, from main incomer down to load level.

Monitor it, secure it, tag it

Tag your electrical protection devices up to 2000 A with PowerTag Energy, pair it with the gateway to receive:

– Accurate real-time measurements and energy values

– Pre-alarm notification in the event of overcurrent

– Real-time alarm and email notification for voltage loss, overload trip

PowerTag Energy contributes to your energy efficiency and carbon footprint reduction targets. It supports Energy Efficiency programmes (EED, EPBD) and standards (IEC 60364-8-1, EN 17267, ISO 50001).

Benefits of PowerTag Energy sensors

Small and cost-effective

Optimise panel size with limited DIN rail impact

Wireless communication

Robust and standards-compliant


Measure voltage and current at the same point

Easy installation and commissioning

Scalable and perfect for retrofits

A scalable, compact design for all segments

Using PowerTag Energy in conjunction with Wiser Energy, our smart home solution (app and IP module), you can:

• Measure energy consumption and production.
• Optimise energy usage.
• Receive real-time notifications and alarms in case of any electrical system anomalies.
• Control the dedicated load for on- and off-switching.

Using PowerTag Energy as part of the EcoStruxure™ Facility Expert for Small Business solution featuring the Facility Expert SB app and Acti9 PowerTag Link C, you can monitor business-critical equipment 24/7:

• Receive alarms in case of power shut-offs, as well as pre-alarms in advance of overload tripping threats.
• Set schedules to automatically switch loads on or off.
• Monitor energy consumption, as well as breakdown by usage.
• Compare energy usage per period to help reduce energy consumption.
• Maintain uptime and reduce the risks associated with refrigeration, ventilation, ovens, compressors, and data processors – ideal for small business owners of restaurants, convenience stores and bakeries.

PowerTag Energy can be connected to EcoStruxure solutions or to any other building monitoring systems (BMS) or SCADA systems. It allows facility managers to carry out simple and efficient actions to improve their electrical installation and critical applications with:

• Generic and configurable alarms.
• Energy monitoring – total consumption and breakdown by usage, for sub-billing management.
• Load operating time counter for preventive maintenance.
• Load management with pre-alarms.

Use PowerTag Energy as part of the EcoStruxure Plant & Machine solution featuring Harmony Hub concentrator to digitise your production line and improve overall equipment efficiency (OEE) with computed data and measure:

• Active Power per phase

• L-N Voltages

• Current per phase

When associated to digital services of the EcoStruxure platform (such as AVEVA Insight software, Augmented Operator Advisor application or Maintenance Advisor software), you can benefit from other advanced services.

Easy to install

With PowerTag Energy, you can add innovation to any project in one simple action. Even in electrical panels where space is at a premium, it’s now easy to tag new or existing circuit breakers, to help customers reduce costs and improve efficiency.
