Real-Time Energy Monitoring System

New: Real-Time Energy Monitoring System
The new Microlink 826 logs data from utility meters - sending the consumption readings to a central PC running Windows. It lets you monitor demand in real-time and identify patterns of use of electricity, gas, water and so on.
Each Microlink 826 can monitor 8 utility meters, and up to 30 Microlinks can be incorporated in one system. The Microlink can be up to 1 km away from the PC. It can also communicate over a modem so you can retrieve reading remotely. Data is stored both locally by the battery-backed Microlink and on the PC, ensuring no loss of information.
The software supplied with the system lets users chart data in real-time and see tables of recent readings. Process mimic software enables staff to create their own data displays, involving, for example, bar charts, analogue meters, colour-coded alarms and control buttons. Data can also be sent, in real-time, to third-party Windows software like Excel for further analysis and report generation.
The Microlink system starts at just £295 (around US$440 or 500 Euros) including software and technical support for life. Additional Microlink 826s cost £150. Significant quantity discounts are available.
