30th March 2015 IN Technology

Earlier this month, we released a new update of Loxone Config (if you haven’t yet had a chance to try it, you’ll find it available to download for free here). As you may have seen, version 6.3 features a new Energy Manager function block to help you keep track of your current electricity production and consumption and manage your self-produced electricity efficiently.

As part of our commitment to helping you keep track of your energy use, we have released two new Modbus Electricity Meters – one single phase and one three phase.

The Highlights

Modbus Electricity MeterWith the new Modbus Electricity Meter you have a quick overview of all your current data such as energy (total and partial), active power, voltage and electricity.

The Loxone Modbus Electricity Meters are available in two versions:

smart-energy-meter-1phase-left-freesmart-energy-meter-3phase-left-free
Single phase Modbus Electricity Meter for £144.00 including VAT. The 1-phase Modbus meter allows you to monitor the usage of individual devices or rooms.3-Phase Modbus Electricity Meterfor £255.00 including VAT. This will give you an overview of usage across your entire home!

Together with the Modbus Extension, the Miniserver can read this information and represent it visually. This will give you an overview wherever you are and whenever you want – you can even view statistics for historic data.

With the help of the template (available in Loxone Config 6.3 and newer versions), the new Modbus Electricity Meter can be easily integrated into your home.
