Re: Using API in Python

Hello I am by no means good at python, but from what I can tell, you are not posting enough information for me to try to determine what is going on. I would recommend that you post a .zip file of your python code, so that everyone on the forum can take a look. I would guess that you are inputing you...

Re: Registers on Modbus

Please try running the python script here: https://documents.ekmmetering.com/api-docs/?shell#rs-485-ekmmeters-py-api I would always use the EKM Dash to make sure you are able to read your meter via your USB converter. Once you have the Dash successfully reading your meter (you then know your connect...

Re: Registers on Modbus

Hello there, thank you for posting to the forum. Very cool to see you are using NodeRed, I got interested in it a while back and made a simple call to the PushAPI (I'll paste in my snippet below). Node Red seems like a good combination of really powerful and easy to understand, I should take another...

Re: WATER METER PULSES READING

Hello joedtara, Yes, this will work, but we recommend no more than 20mA and 24V for reading the pulse on all our water meters. So please use a resistor to limit the current, otherwise the reed switch could be damaged. You can test the pulse output from the water meter using a continuity tester on a ...

Re: ekm metering iserial v2

It depends on how old your iSerial is. The older versions did not allow an upgrade. If you can upgrade, you can try this process: === First download the new iSerial firmware here (file is called nu_flashapp): http://documents.ekmmetering.com/iSerial/nu_flashapp.bin Then log into your iSerial using a...

Re: Gas Meter Install- Units Questions

Our gas meters measure gaseous vapor in cubic feet. Do you want to measure liquid propane? If so, you can convert liquid propane into gaseous propane. Here is a website that can help you: https://www.elgas.com.au/blog/1675-propane-conversion-values-pounds-gallons-btu-therms-ft-usa Im not sure what y...

Re: Does the EKM Push system synchronize? Or only upload data real time?

Your EKM Push's connection to the internet can go down for days at a time and you will still be OK. The meter itself is what tracks the Total kWh data that you need for billing (the meter does not need the Push system in order to be accurate). So if your internet goes down for a few days (should not...

Re: Reset data on Omnimeter I V.3 and Push network? (moving system to another box)

There is no way to go in and modify the past data in the EKM Push system.

Re: Reset data on Omnimeter I V.3 and Push network? (moving system to another box)

It is not possible to reset the Total kWh readings on the Omnimeter I v.3. This is to prevent tampering and is one of the features that makes our Omnimeters revenue grade. The Omnimeter Pulse v.4s on the other hand do have a separate register that is for this called the Resettable kWh (they also hav...

Re: 120V and 240V metering with 15E

A couple things: Yes you can use one EKM 15E on each side of a 120/240 volt 3-wire circuit. Both 15Es would only be measuring 120 volts, if you combined the kWh from each you would get the total kWh for the 120/240 volt 3-wire circuit. However, the EKM 15E will not work with split core CTs. They onl...
