Power Tracker Wireless Energy Monitor & Data Logger
A High Accuracy Energy Monitoring Solution
The Power Tracker is a high accuracy energy monitor for sites that require a remote monitoring or data logging solution.
Please note: If you are after a simple / low cost solution for small sites you might like to check out the Efergy Engage Hub.
The Power Tracker has three main components as pictured:
- Clamps, Plugs & Meters - smart devices to measure your power consumption.
- Gateway - receives data wirelessly from the smart devices and sends this to the server.
- Web Portal - where you log-in to view and export the data.
Customise a Package for Residential or Commercial Applications
To get started you will need 1 x Energy Gateway.
After that you can customise the system to your needs (see the drop-down menu above for the additional parts):
- Smart Clamp (Single Phase 100amp) - if you have three phase, you will need 3 of these, or one of the higher capacity 3 Phase meters.
- Smart Appliance Plug (10amp) - for regular power points.
- 3 Phase Meters - for larger three phase circuits or entire sites between 100 and 300 amps per phase. These 3 Phase Meters can be used in conjunction with additional CT clamps for monitoring larger sites up to 1,000 amps per phase.
