The short answer is: it depends. It depends mainly on the segment / application you are using the meter. BCPMs are more suitable for data centers, mainly because of the number of circuits it can measure, the alarming capabilities, integration with Struxureware, etc. The MCMs and iEM3000 are more suitable for buildings, where the number of circuits to measure with one single meter tend to be smaller, and focus is much more on energy consumption than alarming. We are researching the possibility of coming up with a BCPM offer that will better address the needs for the buildings market (MCMs are an aging platform, iEM3000 are not really a multi-circuit, although they can measure three single phase circuits). Stay tuned!
