3/4 Inch Pulse Output Gas Meter - PGM-075
The complete system provides your gas meter data in the cloud for free! No recurring fees of any kind.
Type: 3/4" Pulse Output Gas Meter
Mounting: Outdoor Mount
Units: Cubic Feet
Pulse Output: 1 Pulse Per Cubic Foot
Dimensions: 10" Tall x 7.5" Wide x 6.5" Deep
Read your gas usage remotely too! Our Pulse Output Gas Meters operate like a normal gas meter. They also have the ability to be read remotely. For every cubic foot of gas that is metered, this gas meter produces an electrical pulse. The pulse output wires can be extended up to 10,000 ft.
The pulses can be measured and counted by our EKM Omnimeter Pulse v.4, which is our new pulse counting electric meter. This pulse counting meter has the ability to count pulses from up to three pulse-output devices. It also has the ability to control up to two relay switches. This allows you to turn thing on and off remotely.
Similarly, our new EKM-ioStack (beta) has the ability to count the pulse outputs from up to 4 pulse output devices. It has the added benefit of being powered by 12V DC instead of 120V AC like the Omnimeters, which makes it easier and safer to install.
When connected to a v.4 Omnimeter or ioStack, the gas meter can send pulse data the cloud with our EKM Push3 data system. The Push3 sends all of your meter data to our cloud database and inserts it into your personal account, where you can access it for free. In other words, with this system you can easily monitor gas usage, at an unlimited number of sites around the world, for free.
Encompass.io is our free online meter management platform for monitoring data, managing meters, generating bills, and more. It is designed specifically for people who are remotely reading their meters via the Push3 system. This platform can be used to visualize data on customizable dashboards, visualize cost, monitor trends, group meters, and a lot more. Each meter and meter group in Encompass can also be set up to email you, and/or your tenant, PDF bills. Here is a sample PDF gas bill:
You can use this meter to measure natural gas, gaseous propane (not liquid), air, or any other non-corrosive gas. We do not recommend that this meter be used to meter Hydrogen.
Simple 2-wire connection between gas meter and kWh meter.
No additional power source is required.
Very reasonably priced gas meter, even if the pulse output is not used.

Spec Sheet: 3/4 inch Pulse Output Gas Meter Spec Sheet .pdf
Functions exactly as advertised! I am measuring Helium gas near a high magnetic field so I did have to be careful about the field strength the unit is subjected to, but it has operated flawlessly! The pulsed output is very easy to monitor with minimal additional hardware.
I'm building a kitchen behind my house and wanted to track my Utility usage separately. I bought two Gas meters because we're on Propane and I had no meter other than the Gallon meter on the main tank.
On 30 May, our tank was nearly 30% full (70 Gals), when I had the Gas company install both meters, along with new Regulators. Since the kitchen wasn't ready, the Omnimeter wasn't active, but the meter to the house began tracking Gas usage at the immediately.
On 30 June, we totally ran out of Gas, which has never happened in 20 years. We had them come out and check for leaks and they found both new regulators had leaked 70 Gals of Propane in 30 days.
The moral of the story? Because I could convert the meter into Gallons, I was able to show them exactly what the amount of gas we had used in that timeframe (20 Gals) and was credited for 50 Gallons. I know if I didn't have the proof of usage from the Gas Meter, they would've been arguing that we must've used most of the 70 gallons. LPG gas was 2.30/Gal or $115 credited back to us.
Can't wait to get the rest of the system on (Electric, Water, Kitchen Gas)!
