Re: EKM Omnimeter Pulse v.4 - Pulse Counter Problem

Interesting Thread in the fact that this issue or one very similar may very well extend to other registers in the V4 meters. Now currently I am not using the Pulse Counters within the V4! BUT The other day (Monday 11th) we had a power failure at around 2.30pm, the TOU at the time should have been us...

Re: where to set rates/tariffs?

BTW. Baseline is set from time to time. It also changes if you have an electric car, solar PV, medical equipment needs etc... The CA rate structure is ridiculously complicated. Ridiculously complicated is an understatement, have you seen the list of tariff schedules here: http://www.pge.com/tariffs...

Re: where to set rates/tariffs?

I tried to find the rate for Rate 5 but came up empty handed. I have heard of Tier 5 rates of over 40 cents per kWh, it is not even on this chart: http://www.pge.com/en/myhome/saveenergymoney/plans/tiers/index.page If you mouse over the tier bar graph to the right you get a "Tip" pop up with the fo...

Re: where to set rates/tariffs?

Also, our tariff structure is not based on TOU but baseline usage. In order to accurately measure energy costs would need to be able to set: a) the monthly billing period start date b) the baseline rate c) the incremental rate based on usage over baseline (i.e. 120%, 150%, 200% etc...) That is an i...

Re: How do I best set up the Time-of-Use options?

Hi Jameson,
Just looking for an update on this issue and whether all the firmwares have passed testing phase?
Are you ready to accept meters for re-flashing or is there further testing to be carried out?
Cheers,
Gary

Re: How do I best set up the Time-of-Use options?

Thanks for the update Jameson,

What would you estimate that the time frame will be for the other firmwares?

I have a few meters V3's & V4's that will need re-flashing, and what will be the arrangements for getting these back to EKM from Australia?
