E-Mon Announces BACNet and LonWorks Certification for Smart Meters

BACnet and LonWorks certification underscore company commitment to conformity and interoperability in Building Automation System (BAS) energy monitoring applications.

LANGHORNE, Pa., July 1, 2013 -- E-Mon, the electric submetering market leader and manufacturer of the widely installed E-Mon D-Mon® product line, announces that several models in the company's advanced meter family were certified by independent testing labs to have met or exceeded equipment interoperability guidelines of two of the industry's leading standards agencies—BACnet Testing Laboratory and LonWorks. Applicable metering devices include E-Mon's advanced Class 3200, 3400, 5000, Green Class Net Meter, Din-Mon and Interval Data Recorders. These E-Mon D-Mon series metering products are designed for a variety of energy monitoring apps, including integrating facility electrical equipment and systems with widely used building automation system protocols.


"Our advanced meters are now BACnet BTL and LonMark listed as being fully interoperable with third-party devices designed to those leading standards," said Don Millstein, President. "These designations will not only open doors for E-Mon's advanced meters in the building automation market, but will also increase brand equity and customer confidence with system integrators and other segments in which proven conformance to testing agency guidelines is becoming increasingly important to equipment suppliers."

E-Mon's advanced metering products — Class 3200, 3400, 5000, Green Class Net Meter, Din-Mon and Interval Data Recorders — were tested by independent labs and certified for listing with:

• BACnet BTL—an independent BACnet Testing Laboratory (BTL) certifies that the aforementioned E-Mon products have passed a series of rigorous tests that verified correct implementation of the BACnet features claimed in the listing. The BTL mark is becoming an increasingly common job-bidding requirement in today's sustainable facility environment.

• LonWorks—the LonMark symbol certifies that tested devices meet compatibility and interoperability requirements for LonWorks which, along with BACnet, is one of the two leading building automation system protocols in the U.S.

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

The FCL model split-core current transformers have multiple benefits, including a flexible twisting motion for ease of application. Installing a split-core CT means there is no need to disconnect your primary conductor(s) which reduces downtime. Many customizations are available including extended secondary lead wire lengths, various outputs including 5A, 1A, 1VAC, and 0.333VAC, and custom rubber inserts to help center the CT and maintain accuracy. The FCL models can be used in applications up to 720VAC and have an operating frequency from 50Hz to 400Hz.
