Re: EKM Dash software not working when in background (MacOS High Sierra)

Hello Piet, Please send us an email, we will send you the latest development version of the EKM Dash. It should fix the issue of your Mac going into "AppNap" and causing issues with the Dash unreliability when in the background. (let us know if this fixes the issue). The dev version has a lot of hal...

Re: Getting more resolution using a v.3 meter

Cool to hear about your system and Cacti. Im not sure what you would lose by changing the CT ratio to 1000 amps, then dividing by 5. I would just give it a shot. You should have the same accuracy and range. Not sure about precision. Is your weather data also based on a count? We have a simple wind a...

Re: EKM Meter Widget vs Encompass.io Total Kwh discrepancy

It does not look like your meters internal clock is properly set. I would first set your meter clock to be as close as possible to your computer date. Here is how you can set your meter time: https://help.ekmmetering.com/support/solutions/articles/6000107129-how-to-adjust-the-meter-date-time Let me ...

Re: Getting more resolution using a v.3 meter

Hello Eventhorizons, This is very cool! What kind of a machine are you running this on? Are you reading your Omnimeters with a USB converter? Before we move forward, can you clarify something? You mention that you would like higher resolution than the 0.1 kWh that the Omnimeter I v.3 provides. But t...

Re: Please help choosing the right meter.

Hello, The EKM 25IDS sounds like it could be the correct meter for you if your wires are under 3/8" diameter and you are metering less than 100 amps. You do not need to purchase external CTs with this meter. The EKM 25IDS already has the CTs internally. When you pass your wires through the tubes in ...

Re: EKMv4 not work in PVoutout

Hello Stishsun, PVOutput is a 3rd party site that takes in your Push data and displays it to you. I think they take in Total Watts and Total kWh. RMS_Watts_Ln_1, RMS_Watts_Ln_2, RMS_Watts_Ln_3 are the watts on each line. I do not think PVOutput displays this data on their site. If you have RMS_Watts...

Re: Smart Home Integration

Hello Lee,

Thank you very much for checking back in and for the feedback on your water meter system! We really appreciate it.

If you get a chance would you post some photos of your setup, or screenshots of your data on the Brultech side?

Glad to hear all is well,

Re: EKM Meter v4 & Phase Rotation

I would only conduct the experiment with 1 voltage reference wire and 1 CT. Again, Im not sure what your results will be.

-> 2. I assume - you want me to connect L2 to L2.
Voltage reference will be on line 1, CT will be on line 2, CT wires will be going to CT1.

Re: EKM Meter v4 & Phase Rotation

It sounds like you are asking for the order in which the sine waves of a 3-phase system line up: https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/textbook/alternating-current/chpt-10/phase-rotation/ As far as I know there would be no way to do this with our meters. :geek: :idea: Looking at it I feel like you could ...

Re: solar loads

All of our electric meters have a non-resettable Total kWh register. Your EKM 25IDS cannot be reset to zero (this is a tamperproof feature of revenue grade meters). If you were to want to know how many kWh were metered from a given time, you would note the kWh at the beginning of the time period and...
