Shark 100T Transducer

Electro Industries/GaugeTech introduces industry leading metering technology. Designed to address the most demanding applications, the Shark® 100 surpasses others providing advanced performance metering in a low cost, compact, panel meter design. Based on an all new platform, this meter significantly outperforms other devices many times its price. This unit is perfect for new metering applications and for a simple replacement to existing analog meters.

The unit utilizes high speed DSP technology with high resolution A/D conversion to provide revenue certifiable accuracy for Utility Billing, Substation Metering, Sub-metering and Critical Metering applications.


New V-Switch™ Technology

The Shark® 100 is equipped with EIG’s exclusive V-Switch™ Technology. V-Switch™, virtual switch technology allows users, OEMs or Power Utilities to minimize different levels of meters and reduce stocking to one type of hardware. In this manner, the meter can be expanded to meet the specific application even after installation. Using V-Switches, you can purchase what you require now and field upgrade functionality as needed, which allows you to optimize your investment. Advanced versions of the Shark® 100 (V3 and V4) also include DNP 3.0 communication protocol.


Available V-Switches:

  • V-Switch 1 – Volts and Amps Meter – Default
  • V-Switch 2 – Volts, Amps, kW, kVAR, PF, kVA, Freq.
  • V-Switch 3 – Volts, Amps, kW, kVAR, PF, kVA, Freq., kWh, kVAh, kVARh and DNP 3.0
  • V-Switch 4 – Volts, Amps, kW, kVAR, PF, kVA, Freq., kWh, kVAh, kVARh, %THD Monitoring, Limit Exceeded Alarms and DNP 3.0

Accuracy percentage of Voltage L-N, Voltage L-L, and Current is 0.1%. For Watts, Wh, VARs, VARh, VA, Vah, and PF the accuracy is 0.2%. Accuracy for Frequency is 0.01 Hz, %THD is 1%, and for % load bar 1-120% readings.

The Shark® 100 is a traceable revenue meter, that contains a utility grade test pulse allowing power providers to verify and confirm that the meter is performing to its rated accuracy.

  Easy to Use and Install 

The Shark® 100 was engineered to be as easy to use and install as possible. From user interface to mechanical construction, many hours were spent to make the Shark straightforward and intuitive so an installer with minimal meter experience and training can succeed with the product. Shark is programmed using a PC Computer or through a simple keypad interface. By using the PC, a technician or electrician can see a visual phasor diagram of the vectors insuring that CT and Voltage polarities are correct. All inputs are color coordinated and have clear simple to understand labeling to avoid cross wiring mistakes.

Advanced Communication Capability with IrDA Interface

Two independent communication ports with advanced features are provided by the Shark 100:

  • RS485 (Option 485P) - This port allows RS485 communication using Modbus or DNP 3.0 Protocols. Baud rates are from 9600 to 57.6k
  • Ethernet (Option INP10) - 10/100 BaseT Ethernet with Modbus TCP protocol
  • Optical IrDA port which allows unit to be set up and programmed using remote laptop PC without communication cable - just point at the meter with an IrDA-equipped PC and configure it.

Superior Voltage and Current Inputs

  • Ruggedly designed for harsh electrical applications on both high and low voltage power systems.
  • Voltage inputs allow measurement to 416 Volts Line to Neutral and 721 Volts Line to Line, which ensures proper meter safety when wiring directly to high voltage systems.
  • Current inputs use a dual input method: CT Pass Through and Current “Gills”
  • CT Pass Through – Preferable to utility users when sharing relay class CTs because the CT passes directly through the meter without any physical termination on the meter, which ensures the meter cannot be a point of failure on the CT circuit.
  • Current “Gills” – This method provides additional ultra rugged termination pass-through bars, allowing the CT leads to be terminated on the meter.

Utility Peak Demand Metering 

The Shark® 100 meter provides user configured fixed window or rolling window demand. This allows you to set up the particular utility demand profile. A Fixed window demand is the demand used over a user configured demand period (usually 5, 15 or 30 minutes). A rolling window demand is a fixed window demand that moves for a user specified sub-interval period. An example is a 15 minute demand using 3 sub-interval provides a new demand reading every 5 minutes based on the last 15 minutes. Readings for kW, kVAR, kVA and PF are calculated using utility demand features. All other parameters offer max and min capability over the user selectable averaging period. Voltage provides an instantaneous max and min reading displaying the highest surge and lowest sag seen by the meter.
Physical Configuration

The unit mounts directly in an ANSI C39.1 (4” Round form) and an IEC 92 mm DIN square form. This is perfect for new installations and for existing panels. In new installations, simply use existing DIN or ANSI punches. For existing panels, pull out old analog meters and place this meter in its place. The meter uses standard voltage and current inputs so that CT and PT wiring does not need to be replaced.
