EKM-Omnimeter I v.3 – Universal Smart Meter, Single Phase or 3-Phase, 120 to 480V, 50/60Hz, up to 5000 Amps
Description: Universal Smart Meter
Voltage: 120 volts, 120/240 volts, 120/208 volts, 230 volts, 277 volts, 480 volts
Amperage: Up to 5000 amps
Type: External CT, 50 or 60 Hz
System: Single-Phase, 3-Ph. 3-Wire, or 3-Ph. 4-wire
Data: Smart Meter v.3 RS-485 Communications
Model: EKM-Omnimeter I v.3
This meter is truly a worldwide universal meter and can be used to meter a wide variety of electrical systems. It meters systems from 120V single-phase 2-wire, to 480V 3-phase 4-wire, both 60Hz and 50Hz. Accurate to 0.5% (Class 0.5). We now stock CTs for up to 5000A per phase.
The only metering system that is commonly used that this meter will NOT support is 3-phase 3-wire 480 volts (we recommend you use our EKM Omnimeter HV v.5 for this system).
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.
Note: this meter requires Current Transformers. The CT ratio can be set internally in the meter 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) up to 415 volts
- Use 3 CTs for 3-phase 4-wire systems up to 277/480 volts
Easy clip-on DIN rail mounting.
How to install an Omnimeter (it is a v.4 Omnimeter in this case but v.3 Omnimeters are installed in a similar way):
These meters are also supported by our revolutionary EKM Push3 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. Push3 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 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 electric bill:
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 is an example:
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 Push3 system, then this software is what you would use. You will also need an EKM Blink USB Converter in order to do so.

My customer wanted a easy solution for monitoring his tenants usage. This equipment allows him to monitor and bill his customer with ease. We tied it into his router for wifi usage. Great price , very easy install.
I've been using their equipment for about a year and it's been fantastic!! However, more importantly, we had some issues with our electrician when they were installing the meter and EKM metering was SOOO helpful. They got back to us very quickly and also had recommendations that were easy to follow. (My electrician was doing something wrong and had nothing to do with EKM metering). EKM doesn't just sell you a product and then leave you to figure it out. They are there for your every step of the way. They spend time talking to the electrician on the phone to make sure everything was installed correctly and were sooo helpful and communicative. I could not be happier with this purchase. Huge thank you to Josh on their support staff!
We bought 66 omnimeters and 2 push products for our RV park in Canada. They worked perfectly right away and have helped us save thousands per month. Their communication is quick and efficient and they shipped our order right away. Even their after sales service is great!
I would highly recomend their products and service to anyone looking for submetering solutions.
I've just installed my first meter in a rental unit. I'm extremely happy with how it has functioned so far. It gives me everything I need to bill my tenant and to allow them to monitor their own usage on a daily basis. The EKM Push product also has an excellent interface with the new encompass.io beta. Great price, super interface, easy to install. My only con was not selecting the right core size for my electrical line initially, and when I did, I had to skin the line for the core to fit. Since I have an upstream shutoff for the line it was no problem. The split core makes shutting the electricity off less crucial but size is very important. Make sure to measure your line size first before ordering as your sheathing may be larger or smaller than the expected wire diameter. Keep up the great work!
I now have installed about 15 of these meters for UL and CSA electrical testing in labs in 120V, 240V and 460 volt circuits . I have written vb.net and labview code for data collection and designed a pic lcd interface to view the data directly off the meter. Calibration is right on the money and have had no out of tolerance meters so far. To increase the accuracy below 5 amps I would suggest using 10 turns through the coil and doing the math accordingly.
