METERology is an engineered solution for monitoring all your energy meters through a simple to use web application which can be accessed from anywhere within your organisation. At its simplist METERology uses the pulse output from existing meters and may therefore eliminate the need to replace meters and any cost associated with changing or upgrading meters. Using the pulse output means that METERology is not restricted to the measurement of electricity meter data, with the measurement of Gas, Water, Heat or Steam equally possible. If additional meters are required for sub-metering purposes there is no requirement to select any vendor specific meters and any suitable meter with a pulsed output may be used.

At its simplist METERology uses the pulse output from existing meters and may therefore eliminate the need to replace meters and any cost associated with changing or upgrading meters.

Using the pulse output means that METERology is not restricted to the measurement of electricity meter data, with the measurement of Gas, Water, Heat or Steam equally possible.

If additional meters are required for sub-metering purposes there is no requirement to select any vendor specific meters and any suitable meter with a pulsed output may be used.

METERology also supports the connection of networked panel meters, such as those from the Socomec DIRIS or Schnieder Power Logic ranges, using Modbus over TCP and Ethernet/RS485 gateways.

By adopting this approach METERology can work alongside your existing BMS or AMR system, providing a graphical display in a manner that makes sense to your stakeholders and building users and making the information available to them on their desktop.

If your meter manufacturer is not listed below but does support Modbus comms using RS485 the chances are that we will be able to communicate with it. Please give us a call to discuss your requirements.

The essential elements of METERology are;

  • Uses EXISTING Energy Meters
  • Uses EXISTING IT Infrastructure
  • Meters read in REAL Time
  • Data stored in YOUR Database
  • Website installed on YOUR server

As well as providing a framework for a bespoke web interface the METERology solution comes with a comprehensive web application for interrogation and analysis of your data.

The functionality of the METERology system includes;

  • Profile Pages
    (Daily Profile, Weekly Profile, Custom Period Profile, ...)
  • Analysis Pages
    (Pareto, Pie Chart, Base Load, 12 Month Rolling Average, ...)
  • Summary Pages
    (Current Day, Current Week, Selected Meter, ...)
  • Comparison Pages
    (Daily Comparison, Weekly Comparison)

METERology uses a standard IT network for communications therefore often all that is required is the provision of an additional network socket at a location convenient to the meters to be read.

Each data aquisition module can read data from up to 12 different meters allowing a large amount of data from say a sub station or plant room to be read at minimum cost.

If it is not possible or suitable to use the exisiting IT network then METERology can use wireless pulse transmitters and a wireless reciever to bring the metering data back into the same database as your other meters.

Logging Data in Real Tme

METERology reads your energy meters in Real Time meaning that it's data is always up to date and that you have access to information on how your building and processes are performing right now!

Real Time data means that you can develop screens for display at building entrances allowing you to engage with building users to show them how their behaviour is affecting the energy use of each building.

Real Time data also means that you can assess the effectiveness of energy efficiency measures as you implement them either to confirm that your measures are delivering the expected results or to direct your efforts in other, more effective, directions.

Monitoring data in Real Time means that you can keep track of costly utilities, such as water, and if there is a sudden increase in consumption, as could happen with a burst pipe in an rarely visited area this can be identified early and acted upon hopefully eliminating the nasty surprise of a very high water bill.
