Re: Determining current direction on V4 with State_Watts_Dir

Thanks Jameson. Based on these values I think the EKM is working just fine but pvoutput seems to be handling the values incorrectly when it tries to generate a consumption figure from generation (SMA Webbox) and the EKM Net. I will follow up with them to confirm they are handling the values correctl...

Determining current direction on V4 with State_Watts_Dir

Hi, I'm having trouble getting my EKM to present current direction correctly on pvoutput. Apparently pvoutput uses the State_Watts_Dir variable to determine the direction of the current. I can see values for State_Watts_Dir such as 1,2,5, 6,7 & 8 at various times of the day depending on solar genera...

Re: Omnimeter-Pulse-v.4 Controllable Relay Outputs

No problem re. suggestion for IFTTT integration. Having IFTTT integration would be another great feature for EKM meters.

Looking forward to the trigger control of relays.

Re: EKM Push

Thanks for the explanation. Yes, Net Watts would be very useful as Total Watts is misleading if the current is going in different directions on each line. I have recently changed my EKM to read net usage rather than consumption in order to run triggers that run off exported power from solar PV. Thos...

Re: EKM Push

Jameson, Which parameter on the v4 tells you if the total watts is in reverse? I can see the Current Direction L1, L2 and L3 parameters but not a flag stating whether there is an overall forward or reverse (and the total watts does not show negative when exporting excess solar generation). Thanks, D...

Re: Omnimeter-Pulse-v.4 Controllable Relay Outputs

That's great news. I look forward to that feature when it arrives. Self consumption of solar will be increasingly important especially in countries like Australia and Germany that are rolling off high feed in tariffs - often over 40c per kWh to just 0-6c per kWh. To do that an accurate net meter suc...

Re: Omnimeter-Pulse-v.4 Controllable Relay Outputs

Hi Jameson, I'm very keen to be able use the Trigger feature to be able to turn on and off both relays separately on a v4. In particular, I'd like to be able to have my v4 running as a net meter (currently it records consumption only) and when the solar power export gets above a certain level, turn ...

Re: EKM Push

Great work on the official release.

Please post here when you've been able to get the pvoutput connectivity in place.

That direct connection from ekm push to pvoutput (for v4 owners) will be a great benefit.

Thanks,
David

Re: EKM Push

Great stuff, I'm able to get the Push working with my V4 meter. I'm also able to use Dash to retrieve what has been sent to EKM and forward to Wattvision and onto pvoutput. Any idea if pvoutput can read directly from the EKM database /api for v4 meters as this would remove the need to use a laptop a...
