Setting the power limit – allows you to set the power limit. If the limit exceeded, the load of the electric meter is switched off. The meter reads the average value of the power consumption within one minute. If the power exceeds the specified limit (5 kW by default) then a shutdown is performed. After that, the meter turns on for re-checking after a minute. After 9 cycles of measuring the average power, the meter will turn off until the end of the current day. The main parameters for the number of cycles and the power limit can be changed in the metering device using the manufacturer’s configurator. To set the limit via the NEKTA interface, you must enter the value in Watts and press the Send button.
