How do you set them up. There are four kwh time slots. How do I set the times?

This is for "Time-of-Use" metering. Some utility customers are charged different rates for different periods of the day. The meter itself keeps track of how much power was used (or generated in these TOU periods. Up to 4 TOU periods can be set and 4 seasons can also be set internally in the meter using the EKM Reader software. Weekends and Holidays can also have a different schedule.

This is for our v.3 EKM Reader Software. We are working on a new version so the details of setting up TOU will change.

In the EKM Reader v.3 software there is a section for "Set/Read TOU and Seasons" under the drop down menu at the top of the page.

Enter your meter number, TCP or COM#, and password (default is "0" --*zero*)

Click "Get TOU and Seasons" -- The settings from within the meter will be displayed.

Then you can enter the TOU settings you want to change and click "Set TOU and Seasons"

These settings will be saved internally in your meter.

If you have any questions, please let us know.
