Re: Not able to read meter now

That's what happens when there's a problem with a website, you go there and it has warning screen, dangerous site with a get me out of here link, you have to click, I want to go anyway and then when you get there it's just text but I was able to get to this message which looked ok. But that was all ...

Not able to read meter now

My electric rates changed. I changed the tariff times successfully. But when I came back in a few weeks I was not able to read the meter. It's not taking any changes either, like I tried to adjust the clock, and it wouldn't change tariffs. Not sure what to try now. Using winXP32bit on a toughbook wi...

Re: New User

That's what I needed thanks

I read once a month with my blink/dash reader.

The V3 is doing everything I need so I'm probably going to go with another V3.

Not sure what a V4 would do for me. Have to look at that but need to try get up and running pretty soon.

Thanks for your help!

Re: New User

So I'm understanding how the meter works a lot more. I only have two sets of hours, weekdays and weekends. Seasons don't matter, that's in my spreadsheets. This should do what I need. Cumulative tally of the 4 registers each month. Push looks nice, might get someday if I want to analyze when stuff i...

Re: New User

Software says the meter can keep data for 6 months so I'm just not doing something right.

Haven't got my tariffs setup yet so I try again after I complete that.

Thanks

Re: New User

So I read the meter a few times.

The data I get is only for when I'm there reading. Does the meter store the data at all?

Or I have to have a computer there logging it?

Re: New User

Can I set up my tariffs on the laptop then take it to the meter and transmit all the data? Or I have to be there at the meter when typing in the data? Can I rename the schedules or I have to keep track of that in my spreadsheet? Hoping I can figure it out once I start working with it. Thanks again. ...

Re: New User

Taking me a long time to get setup but making progress. So I have my meter in and I have Dash software on my laptop. When I close the application it goes to database cleanup. I've read the meter for a few seconds just to make sure it was reading, don't know how much database has to be cleaned up. I'...
