Visualization of multi-utility energy consumption data for Echelon meters


Koblenz, Germany — (METERING.COM) — May 15, 2013 – With the module COMfor.enVIEW.MTR, GÖRLITZ AG offers a solution permitting energy data to be recorded by the Echelon residential meter for request and visualization via IDSpecto.enVIEW on mobile end devices or PCs.

Due to the simple “plug & play” installation, even existing meters can be retrofitted with this functionality.

IDSpecto.enVIEW is one of the portal solutions of the SmartMDM IDSpecto targeting suppliers that intend to offer energy consumption data on mobile end devices or PCs for their customers.

COMfor.enVIEW.MTR, as a component of IDSpecto.enVIEW, provides data from Echelon residential meters for other applications. Data are graphically processed in the enVIEW app in order to visualize multi-utility energy consumption to end users on a per second basis. This significantly contributes to increase energy transparency within the personal environment.

In addition to consumption data, owners of solar installations will also be able to read current feed-in capacity.

“All relevant user information is clearly structured and covers a period without gaps, which, from the present moment, traces back several months in the past,” explains Olaf Schimpf, manager product marketing at GÖRLITZ. “This is possible because values can be requested and combined from both the meter and the IDSpecto database.”

The COMfor.enVIEW.MTR module is available in a set including the Echelon meter or separately for retrofit via plug & play installation. Beside data from the individual meter, the module also provides data for additional devices connected via M-Bus.
