WattMetrics News

New Commercial Hardware Available

We are proud to announce the release of a new version of our Commercial Universal Acquisition Agent. This new agent includes several enhancements and additions to our earlier model, including: 

  • a larger enclosure (still NEMA 4 and conduit-ready) leaves a lot more room to wire power and communications connections
  • a stronger enclosure is more secure than the previous model and includes a option for a lockable clasp
  • the clamshell design of the enclosure makes wiring access much easier and hides the display for greater security
  • dedicated power+communications terminal specifically for use with WattMetrics weather stations - no power injector necessary
  • more USB ports
These changes and more are a direct result of our field experiences to date and  some great customer feedback. Keep it coming!


New Inverter: Power-One

We now support the Aurora series of inverters by Power-One. They make a lot of different Aurora inverter models, including some for wind projects, and we can now support them all. More information on our Power-One support is available here: products/supportedinverters/PowerOne.aspx

The West Irondequoit Central School district installed a new wind turbine system this summer, including a Power-One Aurora inverter and a full WattMetrics weather stationwww.westirondequoit.org/Wind_turbine_2011.htm. The WattMetrics dashboard for this project is available here: services.wattmetrics.com/dashboard.aspx

New Feature: Automatic Reporting to MassCEC PTS

As of this July, we have completed our integration with Massachussetts' production tracking/SREC system. When registering a new MassCEC PTS system via the MassCEC PTS portal, installers can now select WattMetrics as the reporting agent.   

Once a system id is available from the PTS, all the installer has to do is enter that id into the WattMetrics project portal (as shown below). That's it. Once that's done, we will automatically report production data from our system to MassCEC PTS. This service is available free of charge to all WattMetrics projects in Massachussetts. For more information on MassCEC, please visit www.masscec.com and www.masscec-pts.com.
