1.5 Inch Gas Meter - PGM-150. This is a great gas meter that can be read locally, or can be set up to be read remotely when paired with an Omnimeter Pulse v.4 and an EKM Push gateway. The complete system provides your gas meter data in the cloud for free! No recurring fees of any kind.
This gas meter operates like a traditional gas meter, which can be read directly on the meter dials. It also has a pulse output for remote reading.
You can use this meter to measure natural gas, propane (LPG), air, or any other non-corrosive gas.
No additional power source is required.
The following example shows gas meter data displayed on the EKM Widget. The data is made available by connecting the gas meter to the Omnimeter Pulse v.4 and the EKM Push gateway, which is also connected to the internet in order to send the data to the cloud.Product Specs:

Are your Gas meters approved for use by UL and CSA?
No, our gas meters have not received and specific certifications from either UL or CSA.
Is it possible to read a pulse every .1 cu. ft?
It is not possible to easily modify our 3/4" or 1.5" gas meters to pulse at a faster rate. If you do find a 3rd party pulse output gas meter that pulses at a faster rate then you can still use it with our Omnimeter Pulse v.4 pulse counting system.
