EKM-OmniMeter Pulse v.4 -- Our Most Advanced Universal Smart Meter to date, now with the ability to count pulses from up to 3 pulse-output devices, and control 2 external relays. This is truly the one meter to meet all of your metering needs!
The Omnimeter Pulse UL v.4 can count the pulses from up to 3 different pulse output devices, as is explained in this video. These could be pulses from our Pulse Output Water and Gas Meters or from any other un-powered dry contact pulse output device. Pulse Input ratios can be set in software from 1 to 9999 pulses per increment (the default ratio is now 1:1). The real-time state of the 3 Inputs can also be polled in EKM Dash software, the Omnimeter Pulse v.4 will return a High or Low state for each pin in real-time (use this for sensing switch states, open or closed doors, etc).
The Omnimeter Pulse v.4 comes with 2 controllable relay outputs. These can be controlled via RS-485, either locally or over the internet from anywhere in the world using the EKM Dash. You can set the outputs to be high or low to drive an external relay. The Relay Control Outputs can continuously provide up to 50 mA at 12 volts DC each. Control the EKM-Switch120 directly, or control lights, motors, entire buildings, implement Demand Response, Load Shedding, etc. via relay control. The Relay Control Outputs can also be set to go ON or OFF from 1 to 9999 seconds. The real-time state of the outputs can also be polled via RS485. The outputs can also be used to power an external device (Wireless 485Bee Module, sensors, etc). Please note that the relays cannot be controlled when reading the meter with the current version of the EKM Push system (Push2). You will need to be reading the meter with an EKM Blink USB Converter, iSerial, or wait for the next version of the EKM Push system (Push3).
The Omnimeter Pulse is also a revenue-grade universal kWh meter. It can meter systems ranging from single-phase 120V 2-wire or single phase 120/240V 3-wire, 120V to 480 volts, or 3-phase 3-wire 120 to 400 volts or 3-phase 4-wire 120 to 480V, 50/60Hz , 50/60 Hz. It Supports CTs from 100A to 5000A. This meter will work with any system that is commonly used in the world. Accurate to 0.5% (Class 0.5)
This meter has been accuracy tested and certified for by the State of California Department of Weights and Measures. It is California Type Approved and meets California standards for revenue grade metering. Many other states accept California Type Approval for their metering requirements.
This meter uses our full range of compact Current Transformers (you cannot meter electricity without at least one of these). The CT ratio can be set internally in the meter in order for it to work with up to 5000 amp CTs (no multiplier needed).
- Use 1 CT for 120 volt single phase North American, or 230 volt 2-wire foreign systems
- Use 2 CTs for 120/240 volt single phase systems
- Use 2 CTs for 3-phase 3-wire systems (no neutral)
- Use 3 CTs for 3-phase 4-wire systems
Easy clip-on DIN Rail Mounting.
The Omnimeter Pulse is also great option for solar Net Metering. In addition to Total and Reverse kWh, that all of our Omnimeter models provide, these meters also provide the direction of current in real time. This makes it possible to know, in real time, if you are generating more power than you are consuming, and whether you are sending or pulling power, to or from the grid. This meter is listed by the California Solar Initiative as eligible for Performance Based Incentives (PBI). In other words, you may be eligible to earn money back from your Utility, in California and some other States, by using one these meters to monitor the performance of your solar array. Check with your local Utility to see if you are eligible.
How to install an Omnimeter Pulse v.4:
These meters are also supported by our revolutionary EKM Push system. This is our cloud-based, plug-and-play, meter data solution. We are really excited about this new system, and recommend it for most remote reading applications that use our Omnimeter models. EKM Push users can also take advantage of Encompass.io, which is our free online dashboard and meter management suite.
Encompass.io is our free online meter management platform for monitoring and managing meters. It is designed specifically for people who are remotely reading their meters via the EKM Push system. This platform can be used to visualize usage on dashboards, visualize cost, monitor trends, group meters, and a lot more. Each meter in Encompass can also be set up to email you PDF and CSV reports that you can use to monitor you meters and/or use for billing. Here is a sample PDF report:
The EKM Widget offers another option for quickly seeing your meter data online for EKM Push users. It is also easy to save and share your Widget setting once you have it setup how you want. Here are a couple examples:
Our Omnimeters are also fully supported by our free, remote reading, EKM Dash software. If you want to read your Omnimeter on a computer locally, without the EKM Push system, then this software is what you would use. You will also need an EKM Blink USB Converter in order to do so.

I have very remote applications with limited to no internet availability.1 answersQ:Hey,
I am looking for the price of meter type 4 and 4a, 1 and 3 phase. Please reply ASAP, if you have them. Thanks1 answersQ:Looking for a meter with only demand KW read out from utility pulse meter.
What Model to use?1 answersQ:Is this meter UL approved?1 answersQ:I'm looking to connect the dry kyz outputs of a ION 8650 meter to the Omnimeter Pulse v.4 to count the pulses from the kyz outputs, convert the pulses to kWh, based on pulse wait, then finally have another device fetch the data via the serial port. Can this be done with the Omnimeter Pulse V.4?1 answersQ:Hi there, the relay control on these meters - Can these be set up for automated switching by programming preset thresholds etc, or are they only manually controlled?
Alternatively, is there any automated (via presets) remote controlling options via the EKM dash?1 answersQ:If I customize the display values, will this be reset if power is lost?1 answersQ:I'm hoping to use this with the 3/4" stainless steel pulse output flow meter. Can this omnimeter v.4 unit be powered by 12v? Also, how is the omnimeter reset?1 answersQ:Will this electrical meter accept a pulse output from another electrical meter such as the EKM-25IDS? I want to monitor my home energy usage as well as the branch circuit usage to my detached garage.1 answersQ:Can separate readings for each CT and each additional pulse output device be generated from this meter to determine the electrical consumption of multiple tenants without additional meters?1 answersQ:It's stated that the relay control output is 12V at 50 mA, is this AC or DC?1 answersLoading...

- Excellent Product
This meter is awesome. We have a solar PV array on our house, and even though it cant work with the PUSH system yet, it still indicates the direction of current. Well done. Great product.
