28th March 2013 - BACnet communications now supported

Working with Pembrokeshire County Council and the Univerity of St Andrews (and with fantastic support from Siemens) we are pleased to announce that METERology is now compatible with Siemens Desigo BMS.

METERology uses the BACnet open protocol to interrogate installed Siemens Desigo BMS controllers for the current value of any energy meter connected to them. This approach means that METERology can be installed as a complimentary energy management tool without disruption to existing BMS's and without the need for any additional hardware.

3rd December 2012 - Northern Design MultiCube Modular Meter added to supported meters

METERology has extended its range of supported meters to include the MultiCube Modular Meter from Northern Design.

This innovative meter design uses a single master control unit to support the connection of upto ten slave modules. Each slave module can either be configured as 6 x single phase meters or 2 x three phase meters. This space saving design is great for metering LV distribution panels with a lot of outgoing ways and for locations where space is at a premium.

5th December 2011 - METERology extends communications to Schneider PowerLogic range

Using a specialist Ethernet Modbus gateway METERology is now able to communicate directly with Schneider PowerLogic panel meters using RS485 network communications.

This means that if you have an LV distribution panel with multiple Schneider panel meters you can gather the data from all of them with just one ethernet connection and a low cost third party gateway module.

14th November 2011 - Real Time Benchmarking/League Tables added to METERology

Performance league tables have been added to the functionality of the METERology system. These league tables, which can be ranked on either energy/area or energy/occupant are maintained in real time and allow real time benchmaking of energy performance between buildings.

League tables are defined allowing similar buildings to be grouped together. The buidlings in each league table are then selected and the type of league table comparison (by area, by occupant) is also chosen. Different buildings can be configured with different "owners" and a suitable colour chosen to represent them. This means that the performance of each different "owner" can be seen at a glance on the league table display.

28th September 2011 - METERology implements 3G/GPRS Mobile capability

METERology has extended its communications capabilities by developing software to interface with the Maestro Heritage 3G/GPRS modem.

This development means that METERology Real Time Energy Monitoring can be extended beyong the reach of your wired IT network, essentially to any area with mobile phone coverage. This is ideal for temporary construction sites, remote field stations or even just satellite offices that are not part of your main IT network.
