E-Mon's LonWorks Comm Option Allows Up to 40 Submeter Inputs
E-Mon, LLC , the electric submetering market leader and manufacturer of the widely installed E-Mon D-Mon product line, announces the availability of a new LonWorks communication option (specify Option LTP) for converting electrical submeter data into the LonWorks communications format for building automation systems (BAS) and equipment control applications, including lighting and security systems, HVAC and more.Any
* Energy and reactive energy, delivered and received (kWh);
* Real power (kW), total and by phase;
* Reactive (kVAR) and apparent (kVA) power, total and by phase;
* Power factor (percent), total and by phase;
* Current (A), voltage (V) and phase angle (degrees) by phase.
This communication option greatly extends E-Mon's reach into the Building Automation and Controls market by increasing the granularity of electrical measurements that can talk to BAS via twisted pair, power line carrier, wireless and other LonWorks-compatible media, said Don Millstein, president and CEO of E-Mon. With the addition of the LonWorks option, E-Mon's complete line of communication options opens the door to deploying submeters in more than 80 percent of new and installed BAS control applications, including those using Modbus RTU and BACnet MS/TP and Ethernet-based protocols like Modbus TCP and BACnet IP.
