*Please note, starting May 25th, 2023 the Push3 case has be changed to white/blue, from black/blue. Some of the product photos still reflect the old black/blue case. The Functionality of the Push3 has not changed.
We are proud to introduce an entirely new communication system with unprecedented capabilities and exceptional ease of use. It is designed to support our Omnimeter line of kWh meters, in order to maximize their capabilities and data readability. All you have to do is plug it in! -- the Push3 gateway handles all of the meter communication and inserts the reads into our cloud database. Your data is then freely available from a known, fixed location in the cloud, by way of your unique access key. The data can be accessed via our Open API for free. Yes, the data is provided for free. There are no recurring fees for the Push3 data!
Version 3 of the EKM Push system includes some new features. It is natively WiFi enabled (the Push3 has a TI WiLink 8 2.4GHz wireless module, which supports MIMO 802.11 b/g WiFi), so it can connect to the internet via WiFi or ethernet. If you intend to connect the Push3 to your WiFi network, please make sure that your WiFi router supports the 802.11 b/g standard.
The Push3 is able to send settings commands to the Omnimeters, so changing things like CT ratios, resetting Max Demand, or programming TOU tariffs is easily done online. The v.4 and v.5 Omnimeter relays can also be controlled with Push3, so turning things on/off is possible.
Push3 also has default onboard data storage via a ≥16GB Micro SD card. This allows the gateway to log data as a stand alone device, or as simply a back up when the internet goes down for any reason. Once the internet connection is reestablished, data is uploaded to the cloud. The included SD card can be replaced with Micro SD cards or USB drives with more available storage (of any size), if needed. The Micro SD card and/or USB drive should be formatted to FAT32 before being used with the Push3.
There is nothing like this available on the market; whether you are metering a single cottage or an international electric car charging network, with tens of thousands of metered points, we believe the Push3 will be the backbone of the next generation of metering. It represents an entirely new paradigm for meter data management, and control.
Our intent is to provide our customers with FREE, seamless, and unrestricted access to their data in real time. What we are offering is the most robust and capable hardware set available, with easy and and reliable access to your data. Again, this service is free, with no monthly or annual fees.
Up to 128x Omnimeters can be daisy-chained together and connected to each Push3 gateway. However, an unlimited number of Omnimeters can communicate with a single Push3 gateway by using our 485Bee radio modules, which create a mesh network for wireless communication between the Omnimeters and the Push3 gateway.
For each meter that is read by the EKM Push3 gateway, the Push system provides the latest 1000 reads of real-time data. This is typically the last 1000 minutes of data (once/minute read rate). Beyond that the Push database stores a summarized version of that real-time data. It stores 15 minute summaries for 2 years. It stores 1 hour summaries for 4 years. After 4 years, only daily summaries are available and they are only available in UTC time, so the data is no longer timezone adjustable. Daily summaries can also make weekly and monthly summaries but again, those summaries are only available in UTC time after 4 years of storage.
DIN Rail mountable. It is possible to fit this gateway and a v.3 or v.4 Omnimeter inside of this Watertight Enclosure, in the horizontal orientation.
