Boulder, Colo.-based eGauge Systems this week unveiled its next generation of eGauge energy meters with the ability to measure DC and AC power simultaneously.
The meters have 30 current transformer inputs, 0-277Vac and +/-60Vdc measurement ports, LCD interface, and two USB inputs.
eGauge said that the meter’s improvements increase usability without an increase in the system cost.
The eGauge Pro has embedded ethernet and power line communication, and is USB WiFi and cellular enabled for Internet connectivity. The meter holds a UL stamp of approval for safety and adheres to ANSI C12.20 for high-accuracy revenue grade measurements.
According to eGauge, its new generation of hardware complements off-grid renewable energy, electric vehicle, photovoltaic strings, and other DC power applications by consolidating AC and DC measurements into one system.
“The philosophy behind eGauge has always been to provide a complementary meter for homes and businesses that wish to better understand and improve their energy profile,” eGauge President David Mosberger said in a statement. “We considered the growth of battery storage and electric vehicle markets, anticipated further advances to similar technologies, and designed the eGauge Pro to easily communicate the impact of these new technologies.”
In addition, the eGauge Pro integrates with existing eGauge management and M&V tools, such as eGuard, a free enterprise software monitoring platform.
