Calculate running costs / Save $$$ / Help the environment.

Electricity costs are now extremely high. With all the extra appliances and lighting in our homes and offices it is very difficult to keep in control of our expenditure on electricity. The electricity used whilst in standby mode can add up to significant amounts across weeks, months, and years.
Often people just leave their items switched on or in standby mode, this costs you a lot of money and wastes energy.

This Energy Control Monitor allows you to see your instant power consumption in KWatt and $.

It will instantly display what the effect of turning off individual appliances, Hi Fi, computer equipment, lights, electric heaters etc has on your electricity costs.

You can then ensure that you turn off, or use equipment, lights, appliances in a more efficient way saving you money.

This meter helps people and companies ensure that they turn all relevant equipment fully off.

How it works

The product consists of two main parts, a sensor (transmitter) and a display (receiver).

The sensor is clipped around the three main live cables between the electricity meter and the fuse box (no need to cut wires). Data is then sent via the battery operated transmitter to the display unit.

The display unit will then show the data it receives in real time. You can easily input your current electricity price, the monitor will then show much you are spending on an hourly, daily and monthly basis.

It is also possible to input two prices if you use off peak supply prices.

The monitor is supplied with a wireless transmittor & one sensor ready for THREE PHASE power supplies. Simply clip the clamps around your power line in your fuse box and the combined power consumption is displayed. No wire cutting required, clamps are as simple as pegging clothes on a line. (NB: We recommend that any work inside your electricity meter box is carried out by a qualified electrician. An average install will take under 5 minutes.)


Software

The unit can store up to 4 years worth of data. This data can be downloaded onto a PC either directly via a hyper link terminal in windows, or via some simple software which you can download. A PC link cable is supplied for you to make the connection, and the instructions for setting up the connection is supplied.

Driver for Windows 7, Vista, XP (both 32-bit & 64-bit versions supported)

Energy Cost On The Rise

In NSW energy costs have been on the rise and since we started selling these units in 2008 the cost per kWh has risen from $0.13 to $0.19 in Nov 09 (a rise of 46%), and in July 2010 it is expected to rise by another 13-21%. In fact it is estimated by the EUAA that prices will rise by a further 65% by July 2013. That means that between Nov 08 and July 13 your electricity costs will rise by over 140%.

GREEN and MONEY SAVING USES:

If you are interested in monitoring economy then you can use this unit to simply monitor your total Watt consumption. The easy to read display screen shows the power being drawn and an estimate of your electricity cost. Simply enter your current cost per kWh as shown on your electricity bill ($0.19 incl GST Nov 09 for Sydney Integral Energy) and the unit will show you the dollar cost per day and then per month based on your current consumption. You can then turn devices off around the home and watch the KWatt figure drop and the new lower cost estimates display.

A great test is to turn everything off in the house then see what your power consumption goes down to....

then it is time to look for those hidden (and expensive) energy wasters
