GreenEye Monitor (Residential)
The GreenEye Monitor (GEM) is a multi-channel energy consumption monitor. The GEM is used to measure consumption of up to 32 electrical circuits and provide up to the minute consumption data.
The GEM also includes temperature sensing and pulse counting inputs. It can accept pulses from water or gas meter which have pulse outputs and provide consumption information.
NOTE: For single or split phase services only.
- 32 Power Monitoring Channels
- Measures “True” Power and Energy
- May be used for “NET Metering” of Solar and Wind Power Systems
- Capable of Monitoring Single or Split-Phase Systems (for 3-phase systems the “GreenEye Commercial” is required)
- Multitude of Communication Options Available: RS-232, WiFi, Ethernet, ZigBee
- Includes Four Pulse Counter Inputs For Water or Gas Consumption
- 1-Wire Bus© for Temperature Sensing
- Concealed Lead Connection for Clean Installation
- Variety of Data Hosting Options
ChannelsThe GEM has 32 identical channel with the following capabilities:
- Measures “True” (Real) Power. This is what the power company charges for.
- Compatible with any Brultech CT.
- Monitor NET energy for Solar or Wind generating system.
- Monitor up to 32 individual breakers, or combine breakers onto one channel to monitor even more.
- Ability to monitor a 120V or split-phase 120V/240V load on a single channel.
- Double breakers with no neutral can be monitored with 1 CT.
Pulse CountersThe GreenEye Monitor has four pulse counter inputs. These counters detect pulses received from devices such as water or gas meters which have pulse output. These inputs may also be used to detect traffic via motion sensor. There are two types of counter inputs:
- Counter 1 and 2 inputs are optically isolated from the GreenEye Monitor circuit. These require a pulsed voltage between 3VDC and 24VDC.
- Counter 3 and 4 inputs require signal from “dry contacts”. This means that the pulses are generated by a reed switch or relay contacts and requires no voltage.
Temperature MeasurementsThe GEM measures temperature via a “1-Wire Bus®”. The 1-wire bus is a Maxim®/Dallas® proprietary standard and accepts the very popular DS18B20 temperature sensor. The 1-Wire system uses a single three conductor (bus) to connect all sensors in parallel. The GreenEye Monitor can then address each individual temperature sensor.
CommunicationThe communication ports are used initially for GEM setup. Once all parameters have been configured, the port is used to transfer realtime data to the data host. The available communication options are:
- ZigBee® (XBee® Module)
- Ethernet/WiFi Module
- XBee Module (may be combined with Ethernet/WiFi module)
