The red wire goes to pulse output 1 and the white wire goes to pulse output 2. Im not sure what you mean by the electrical properties of each wire. There is no electricity c...

Re: Mobile Apps?

Hello Rick23, Thank you very much for considering using EKM. We do not have a native mobile app for iOS or Android at this point. But, if you are OK with using your mobile browser, you can use the EKM Widget to see your data. Here is more information about the EKM Widget: https://www.ekmmetering.com...

Re: RS485

Hey oxymai, Thank you for sending the screenshot along with the settings you are using (though I dont understand all of your settings). From what I can tell by just looking at your screenshot, it looks like you are sending a good meter request, the meter is receiving this request, and is sending a f...

Re: Using API in Python

Hello I am by no means good at python, but from what I can tell, you are not posting enough information for me to try to determine what is going on. I would recommend that you post a .zip file of your python code, so that everyone on the forum can take a look. I would guess that you are inputing you...

Re: Registers on Modbus

Please try running the python script here: https://documents.ekmmetering.com/api-docs/?shell#rs-485-ekmmeters-py-api I would always use the EKM Dash to make sure you are able to read your meter via your USB converter. Once you have the Dash successfully reading your meter (you then know your connect...

Re: Registers on Modbus

Hello there, thank you for posting to the forum. Very cool to see you are using NodeRed, I got interested in it a while back and made a simple call to the PushAPI (I'll paste in my snippet below). Node Red seems like a good combination of really powerful and easy to understand, I should take another...

Re: WATER METER PULSES READING

Hello joedtara, Yes, this will work, but we recommend no more than 20mA and 24V for reading the pulse on all our water meters. So please use a resistor to limit the current, otherwise the reed switch could be damaged. You can test the pulse output from the water meter using a continuity tester on a ...

Re: ekm metering iserial v2

It depends on how old your iSerial is. The older versions did not allow an upgrade. If you can upgrade, you can try this process: === First download the new iSerial firmware here (file is called nu_flashapp): http://documents.ekmmetering.com/iSerial/nu_flashapp.bin Then log into your iSerial using a...

Our gas meters measure gaseous vapor in cubic feet. Do you want to measure liquid propane? If so, you can convert liquid propane into gaseous propane. Here is a website that can help you: https://www.elgas.com.au/blog/1675-propane-conversion-values-pounds-gallons-btu-therms-ft-usa Im not sure what y...

Re: Does the EKM Push system synchronize? Or only upload data real time?

Your EKM Push's connection to the internet can go down for days at a time and you will still be OK. The meter itself is what tracks the Total kWh data that you need for billing (the meter does not need the Push system in order to be accurate). So if your internet goes down for a few days (should not...
