Re: New EKM Metering API Docs

If we develop a new version of the API, we would always attempt to keep the older version of the API running for some time (1 or 2 years or more would be my guess). All of our software solutions (the EKM Dash, the EKM Widget, and encompass.io) use the current version of the API. If we planned to obs...

Re: RS-485 communication fails

Your data all looks very good. I would imagine that this is a problem that we saw with one of our customers already. They were running Dash on Fedora Linux. It turned out that there was an issue with how the public version of Dash was calculating the checksum in Fedora. We have since fixed this in t...

Re: One Omnimeter V4 using Blink and Push?

You can have an EKM Push, an EKM Blink, and an EKM Omnimeter on the same serial RS485 bus. But only one of these can be communicating at one time. Normally you would have just one master (the EKM Push) and one slave (the EKM Meter), but in this arrangement you will have 2 masters, so as long as they...

Re: Gas meter install

1.00 cubic meter equals 35.31 cubic feet. If you have a gas meter that pulses once per cubic meter, then for every pulse you would be measuring 35.31 cubic feet of gas. If you have a gas meter that pulses once per 1/10th of a cubic meter, then for every pulse you would be measuring 3.531 cubic feet ...

Great to hear! Sorry, no we do not offer free shipping. We try to charge just what it takes to ship (we dont try to make money on shipping). If you want to ship faster it will cost more. We let you decide. If you ship by a normal method within the US, we ship using USPS Priority in most cases and it...

Re: New User

Hello Tacman7, Yes, you can use any of our Omnimeter models to help you with your Time-of-Use (TOU) billing. Our Omnimeters keep track of 4 separate TOU tariff rates internally so that you can tell exactly how many kWh you have used in the On Peak Hours, Off Peak Hours, Sholder, Super Peak. The mete...

Re: UL or No UL

No the UL Listed Enclosure would just be part of a UL Listed installation. It would not be a UL Listed install if you did not use a UL Listed meter inside the UL Listed Enclosure. For a UL Listed Install you have to use a UL Listed Enclosure, UL Listed Fuse Holders, and a UL Listed Meter, along with...

Re: UL or No UL

Hello m1sacs, The need for UL listing really depends on your local jurisdiction and building codes. You can ask your local building department if they require it. Many building inspectors like to see the UL mark, even if they dont really need it according to their code. If you are unsure if you will...

Re: gas meter adapter

Our 3/4" gas meters come with 2 3/4" NPT fittings. These are tapered thread 3/4" fittings. Can you get them to work with your pipe size? What pipe size do you have? I am not clear what issue you are having, do you have EKM Metering 3/4" gas meters? Will you post a photo of the issue you are having?
