The Eaton PDI Branch Circuit Monitoring System (BCMS) Hub offers a convenient, centralized and easy-to-use platform for collecting, aggregating, tracking and displaying panelboard and busway electrical circuit performance metrics in support of a range of applications including fault detection, energy management and tenant billing. With the ability to centralize the collection and reporting of key electrical performance measurements across as many as 70 panelboards or busway devices the Eaton PDI BCMS Hub is the perfect solution for adding operational efficiency and greater convenience to your facility. Designed to work with branch circuit information coming from PDI Remote Power Panels (RPP), PDI Power Distribution Units (PDU), PDI PowerWave 2 busway distribution and stand alone panelboards Eaton PDI BCMS Hub can support nearly any panelboard configuration from PDI or other OEM vendors. With a 10” color touchscreen display the Eaton PDI BCMS Hub simplifies activities such as measurement validation, alarm management, maintenance and repair. With support for multiple communication protocols including Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP the WaveStar BCMS Hub can be easily integrated with nearly any BMS, DCIM or EMS in the market today.

PowerWave Bus System

Data center managers are tasked each day with collecting and managing a tremendous amount of information on the power architecture that supports critical loads. Once this information has been gathered, the next step is to interpret data from the monitoring of each branch circuit or server load by using Eaton’s patented Branch Circuit Monitoring System (BCMS).

Eaton has both raised-floor and solid-floor solutions that employ BCMS to make load management easy. The Eaton BCMS Hub brings together up to 70 downstream BCMS devices—at your finger tips—and allows you to focus where needed and stay ahead of power issues before they occur.

  1. Alarm event capture and log
    Scroll through real-time events captured on-screen for easy interpretation
  2. Alarm notification
    Email, pager and IP addressable
  3. Security features
    Scroll named users with log-in and password protection
  4. Branch circuit graphs and tabulations
    • By breaker and panelboard
    • Actual, warning and alarm settings real time

IP Address Access

The BCMS Hub can also be accessed via an IP address for real-time management of multiple devices over the web.

The standard BCMS Hub package also includes:

  • Modbus RTU protocol
  • Touchscreen WaveStar monitor to graphically show each BCMS-enabled panel board
  • Standard reporting software with exportable Excel files
  • Embedded web server IP addressable interface for remote monitoring
  • Software that looks at alarms, current and power measurements in real time through TCP / IP connections
