Re: How to Get Water and Gas Data from Omnimeter

Here is a screenshot from my EKM Dash Hex Inspector. It shows an example of an Omnimeter Pulse v.4 Read A and a Read B. I have highlighted (in faint blue color) the section of the Hex that is for the Pulse Count 1, Pulse Count 2, Pulse Count 3. The Hex for this section at this moment is 30 30 30 30 ...

Re: How to Get Water and Gas Data from Omnimeter

Thats great! Sounds like a very cool project. Yes, you could either use the EKM Omnimeter Pulse v.4 to count the pulses from up to 3 separate pulse output devices, then read the Omnimeter Pulse with either your Pico, or with our EKM Push3. Or you could count the pulses directly using your Pico. If y...

Re: Real Power Calculation on Omnimeter II UL v.3

Hello Thomas, Yes, the Omnimeter uses this formula to calculate watts and kWh internally on each phase: Volts x amps x power factor = watts In your top row that would be 117.7 x 7.4 x 0.74 = 642.9 watts Im sorry if this is an unsatisfactory answer, but the calculated watts does not often come out to...

Re: Internet Connection Options for Push System

If you want to connect your Push3 to a wifi network that has a password, you will need the wifi password. Or you can just connect the Push3 to a router with an ethernet cable and you would not need a password. Either way you will need your tenants permission to do this.

Re: Internet Connection Options for Push System

Hello Amanda, welcome to the forum! Yes, the Push3 gateway needs to connect to the internet via either ethernet or wifi. So this generally narrows down your options to regular internet (DSL, cable, fiber optics) or cellular, or satellite. For regular internet yes, you could either use your tenants i...

Re: Summary data is severely latent

Im afraid we don't have an API status page for the real-time API and the summary API. At this point the quickest is just a short email to us (with the API call or widget link you are using) and we will get back to you. You could go to our public account and see if the real-time data and summary API ...

Re: Summary data is severely latent

Hey, Im sorry to leave you hanging! I just saw your posts in the forum. It sounds like you have experienced 3 overlapping issues: 1. The Summary API is sometimes not closely coupled in time to the real-time API. The summary API will always be a little behind the real-time API but should not ever be ...

Re: Omnimeter 1 v.3 and the magic smoke

Hello Ian,

Both the R4 and R67 resistors on your older Omnimeter model are 5.1 Ohm.

Sorry it took a while confirm this, but we had to go dig up some older Omnimeters to match the one you have there.

Good luck with the repair!!

Re: Omnimeter 1 v.3 and the magic smoke

Hi Ian, Sorry to hear that. We would be happy to help you out. But we are a bit confused, maybe you have an older Omnimeter, but what you are describing does not match up with what we are seeing here. Do you mind providing photos of your Omnimeter PCB showing the entire PCB, showing a clear view of ...

Re: Raspberry Pi with Adafruit.io using Python

Hi George, thank you very much for posting this! And thank you for sharing your code so others can build upon what you are working on.

Did you ever figure out why the meter reported 60 volts initially? Seems like everything is working well now, and seems to be reliable. Good work!!
