Please be aware that this is a beta product. Please only order this product if you are willing to be a beta tester, we could certainly use your help testing and verifying. Please expect that the Push3 beta will have all of the potential hiccups associated with a beta product. If you are not interested in helping us test this product, we recommend that you order a Push2 Gateway instead, which has a proven track record over many years and thousands of meters.
The Push3 now works with www.encompass.io, the EKM Widget, the EKM Dash software, and our open cloud API for both real-time data and summary data.
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 EKM Push 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 EKM 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. It is able to send settings commands to the meters, so changing things like CT ratios or TOU tariffs is easily done. The v.4 and v.5 Omnimeter relays can also be controlled with Push3, so turning things on/off is possible. Push3 also has on board data storage via a 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.
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 EKM Push3 gateway by using our 485Bee radio modules, that create a wireless mesh network.
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.
