Commercial & Residential Monitoring Applications
EG3000 — Ethernet
Preferred for its adaptability in both industrial and commercial settings where it is desirable for a network connection to be hardwired. SMS and email alerts can be configured by the user to respond instantly with demanding equipment loads with the ability to regulate peak demand through live updates. Loads up to 3 phase 277/480 Vrms and 4800A can be measured and analysed, and enjoy simple installation around parallel feeds and bus-bars with the 6 inch flexible rope CTs (RCT-1800-COIL).
EG3010 — Ethernet and HomePlug AV
Popular for its capability to use existing electrical wiring to broadcast data signals in a domestic context. Known as a power-line communication” system, it can lower costs by removing the installation of new wires. Our standout value devices these instruments can record lighting, hot water heater, HVAC, main feeds, solar production, battery storage and production, entertainment, sump pump, pool pump and oven, all the in the convenience of one system. Monitoring your supply and demand of energy has been reinvented with the EG3010.
A HomePlug Adapter is not included but is available for the EG3010.

With the ability to measure up to 12 circuits on up to 3-phases (120V-480V, 60-60Hz), the e-Gauge is capable of recording, monitoring, measuring and analysing data in relation to consumption, storage, generation and more to give you a comprehensive look at your electrical power needs. As all data is presented online, it can be accessed in real-time by devices with access to the internet. Using a high-speed SSD, data can be accessed from up to 30 years ago and accessed through BACnet and Modbus or pushed to a server. The new eGauge devices boast 1% and 0.5% Revenue Grade Accuracy Compliance for solar PV systems, sub-metering and utility billing.
The recommended Current Transformers (CTs) provide 100% accuracy from 1% to 100% of their range (a 50A CT will provide 100% accuracy from 120 watts to 12kW)
eGauge is a tool that will continue to provide a real time Demand Management capability
The latest version includes Revenue Grade Accuracy Compliance to assist with billing accuracy for utilities and accurate records of energy and power usage. There are two high accuracy models available (ANSI-C12.1 [1%] and ANSI-C12.20 [0.5%]) available.
Our eGauge devices pay for themselves by enabling identification of savings on energy and power consumption.
Record and reproduce all your consumption data, verify your energy accounts levied to help you minimise and maintain control of your monthly bills.
Identify and manage Peak Demand events
This detailed monitoring is vital for users in an industrial or commercial setting. With real-time updates on all data, you can keep an eye on usage and minimise peak demand.
Keep track of the energy outputs from any location
Because the eGauge monitoring system stores data on the web, its easy for you to access any information you need from home, work or on the road so that you can stay informed.
Installers of renewable energy systems can effectively observe all systems in one convenient program and be aware of any issues as they happen.
Record data from individual circuits, appliances and motors
With just one of our eGauge devices, you can link up to a dozen separate circuits for detailed monitoring of each appliance. If you link multiple eGauges with one another, you can have virtually unlimited capability to monitor rooms, appliances and other individual loads separately.
Each and every channel used for measurement is sampled many thousands of times by your eGauge devices to give an accurate calculation of real power (what you are billed for by utilities), apparent power, True RMS voltage, and current. The simultaneous sampling and high frequency enable the eGauge monitoring software to establish the phase-relationship between the voltage and current channels and subsequently detect which direction power is flowing (e.g., from house to grid and vice versa, when power is being used, when more renewable energy is being produced than consumed).
eGauge provides monitoring for the following quantities:
- Line frequency in Hertz (one measurement).
- True RMS voltage in Volts (one measurement per voltage tap).
- True RMS current in Ampres (one measurement per CT).
- Real power in Watts (one measurement per voltage/current pair defined in the device configuration).
- Apparent power in VA (one measurement per voltage/current pair defined in the device configuration).
- Power factor (one measurement per voltage/current pair defined in the device configuration).
The online interface of the eGauge shows real-time updates on this data through the channel checker (Tools/Channel Checker).
The Web Interface
Our eGauge devices use an intuitive interface to display the most relevant information as clearly and simply as possible in combination with a live, high-res graph for easy monitoring:
The left side of the graph shows recently recorded data (most recent 24 hours in the example above), while the right side is updated with current consumption (red) and generation (green) every second. In this instance, the solar system was generating 7742 watts of power while the home had a total consumption of 1478 Watts. The red and green lines on the graph represent total consumption and generation respectively, while the red and green shaded areas show energy consumed and put back into the grid.
The view of the data can be changed with the simple tap of the “View” link located at the top right of the screen. Choosing the kiosk view will enable a passive display that cycles through three different screens over time, showing total generation of renewable energy, generation since midnight, and a basic version of the data presented on the home screen.
By choosing the sleek kiosk view, your eGauge devices give you a snapshot of the past three days on the one screen with comparison values. While the default setting shows a summary over three days, you can change the preferences to show data over a different length of time along with other customisable options.
The eGauge is designed to be highly adaptable, and almost every feature can be adjusted through the online interface. A password is required for security purposes when making any changes to the interface.
The installation screen is shown in the following screenshot, which defines what kind of CTs are connected to the eGauge, what energy data (Registers) to record, and how total consumption and generation are to be calculated:
