Re: One Omnimeter V4 using Blink and Push?

You can have an EKM Push, an EKM Blink, and an EKM Omnimeter on the same serial RS485 bus. But only one of these can be communicating at one time. Normally you would have just one master (the EKM Push) and one slave (the EKM Meter), but in this arrangement you will have 2 masters, so as long as they...

Re: Gas meter install

1.00 cubic meter equals 35.31 cubic feet. If you have a gas meter that pulses once per cubic meter, then for every pulse you would be measuring 35.31 cubic feet of gas. If you have a gas meter that pulses once per 1/10th of a cubic meter, then for every pulse you would be measuring 3.531 cubic feet ...

We let you decide. If you ship by a normal method within the US, we ship using USPS Priority in most cases and it...

Re: UL or No UL

No the UL Listed Enclosure would just be part of a UL Listed installation. It would not be a UL Listed install if you did not use a UL Listed meter inside the UL Listed Enclosure. For a UL Listed Install you have to use a UL Listed Enclosure, UL Listed Fuse Holders, and a UL Listed Meter, along with...

Re: UL or No UL

Hello m1sacs, The need for UL listing really depends on your local jurisdiction and building codes. You can ask your local building department if they require it. Many building inspectors like to see the UL mark, even if they dont really need it according to their code. If you are unsure if you will...

Re: gas meter adapter

Our 3/4" gas meters come with 2 3/4" NPT fittings. These are tapered thread 3/4" fittings. Can you get them to work with your pipe size? What pipe size do you have? I am not clear what issue you are having, do you have EKM Metering 3/4" gas meters? Will you post a photo of the issue you are having?

Re: EKM Dash Software - Start Meter Reading on Application Open

Your EKM Dash software should start to read your meter after about 30 seconds of first starting up. If you have your EKM Dash software set to read meters, then you quit your Dash, and then start it again, it will wait for about 30 seconds and then start reading your meters again. If your Dash is set...
