Re: Water Meter Accuracy

The only way I could think that our EKM meters would read faster than the city water meter would be: 1. If the city water meter is old and the EKM Meters are new. Water meters tend to slow down with time, not speed up. 2. If the EKM meter is measuring air bubbles, but the city meter is not. 3. If yo...

Re: Vertical water meter location

Thank you for your question. I am not able to tell how much space you have in your photo, but it does not look like you would have enough straight pipe before and after the water meter to meet the minimum requirements. This recommendation of 10x the pipe diameter in straight pipe length before the w...

Re: How to meter main Panel with a submeter on a panel downstream

To meter the main house, you could have an Omnimeter with 2 current transformers. You would pass all of the wires from Line 1 (with the exception of the wires you want to exclude that are going to the small house) through the Line 1 CT and pass all of the wires from Line 2 (with the exception of the...

Re: How to meter main Panel with a submeter on a panel downstream

Hello, no there is no way to manually enter 3rd party meter data into encompass. In your case you would also want to install a submeter on the main house which excludes the circuit going to the subpanel on the smaller home. That way you could get the meter data from both residences into encompass. Y...

Re: Push3 repair

Hello, sorry no we do not provide schematics of our Push3 gateway. Can you tell us which part is broken? If there is obvious damage, can you post a pic of it here? Here is an article about how to either change the meter to Push assignments yourself, or how to request that we make these changes in th...

Re: Pulse inputs to RS485 Push 3 protocol with Raspberry Pi

Hello! 1. We wont be including the documentation about how to flash over the JTAG, but if you own the ioStack, there is nothing we can do to stop you from tinkering with it. What functionality would you like to add? What improvements would you like to see? Or are you just curious to re-create the io...

Re: iostack Topology in Distributed 485bee Network

Great question. You will be able to connect the ioStack to your RS485 network, just like you connect an Omnimeter now. The ioStack has an RS485 terminal block for the connection for the RS485 A and the RS485 B connections. The ioStack can be up to 4000 feet from the EKM Push on a hardwire connection...

Re: Account keys for used units

We need the original owners permission to transfer them to you. Just have them write us an email with the email address that they used to purchase the meters. If you do not know the original owner, you can email us the meter numbers, and we will contact the original owner. Then once we have permissi...

Re: Pulse inputs to RS485 Push 3 protocol with Raspberry Pi

Hello, Im glad to hear you are interested in the ioStack. In our opinion it is a cool piece of kit! The ioStack is hot off the press, so it will take us a while to get our documentation in order. We do not plan to open source the ioStack hardware, but we do plan to share the ioStack RS485 communicat...
