Re: EDMI Atlas Mk10d meter - how to see live usage

Hi t8ke0ver, I understood from your post that you want to do some type of Serial Data Logging from your EDMI meter and push that data to the cloud. Is my understanding correct? Is reliability of the data logging important in this scenario? If so, why wouldn't you go the route of using Ethernet (Modbus TCP) and move past the entire serial experience? Also, from a security of data perspective, you would benefit from some type of mediator box like a Modbus-to-SNMP mediator. It takes the Serial Mo ...

Re: Do i need a 3 phase solar inverter with 3 phase power ?

Hi Mjuice, You will only be charged for what you draw from the grid. The charging by the utility only occurs after the netting of the three phases at the meter has occurred.

Hi GoldCoastSteve, I'm sorry you had a had a bad experience. I don't believe most of the Electricity Providers mind if a consumer manages their usage. We can simply monitor the electricity by buying a product (In-home displays) and connect it to the meter. This information can be read real-time via a mobile app (not provided by the Electricity Provider) or on an internal display. I believe the reason for the 24 hour delay for the readings is that all the results are compiled on a nightly basis ...
