This meter uses the very powerful industrial grade RS-485 communications. It is also very reliable and easy to install. This is the 120 volt version of our EKM-25IDS-N which is a 120/240 volt 3-wire meter.
RS-485 communications allows you to get much more data out of the meter. It will be more reliable and accurate than other forms of meter data, such as pulse output. You can connect up to 256 of these meters daisy chained together on up to 4000 feet of wire. This string of meters can then be connected to one of our converters for reading the meters with a computer, over the internet or LAN, USB, or Serial Ports. State-of-the-art, fully solid-state kWh meter with 800 pulses per kWh pulse output
