Energy Automation (EA) - the official Australian stockist, distributor and support agent for the USA manufactured eGauge = VALUE!
The eGauge is a robust, cost-effective solution for electrical energy monitoring, sub-metering, datalogging, and webserving. It performs all of the functions that only a few of the higher end utility watt-hour meters can, and at a fraction of the price. With 12 current transducer (CT) inputs it offers excellent flexibility for sub circuit metering and monitoring.
The eGauge can have >60 programmable registers for datalogging combinations of voltage across any phase up to 3 phases, sub circuit voltage, frequency, apparent power, power factor, current, and any combination of CTs.
All data is presented on advanced SIMPLE TO READ AND OPERATE screens, and data can be downloaded in specific time blocks as required e.g. a specific billing period.
Default screen presentations are 'Gross Power Used' (from grid) and 'Gross Solar Generated'.
It can be configured to provide NET POWER USED (what is purchased in kWh and $) and NET POWER EXPORTED to GRID (what is sold in kWh and $)
If more than 12 circuits require monitoring, the eGauge can also be “teamed” with another eGauge or other eGauges, to conglomerate more circuit sub-metering. This works very well in unit or hi-rise sub-metering and can typically get the per unit sub-metering cost down to a low $ per unit installed cost.
Data is hosted on the eGauge website FREE through a robust web hosting page. Updates are free and there are no ongoing costs.
In addition to direct wiring the eGauge to the LAN, the eGauge transmits data via Ethernet of powerline (EOP or POE) to a home-plug adapter, which can then plug into a router allowing LAN access or internet access, and it has WiFi capability.
The eGauge works well anywhere from residential applications to large industrial applications. It also can provide monitoring of PV systems while simultaneously providing building load data and can be extended to battery storage monitoring.
Advice on the eGauge and auxiliary current transformers (CTs) is available on 0416 188 490
Our recommended CTs provide 1% accuracy from 1% to 100% of their rating e.g. a 50A CT will provide 1% accuracy from 120 watts to 12 kW
