The Maverick IP Sub Metering Appliance incorporates a web server,
accepts a pulse input from any energy meter (KWH, water, gas, steam
or compressed air) and displays consumption by the minute, hour, day,
week and month. The appliance logs the data in CSV format and usage
can be viewed as bar graphs for the minute, hour, day, week and month.
The appliance can also email periodic consumption reports every hour,
day, week or month which can be imported into Excel, Word or any other
application which accepts CSV data. Data is also available formatted for
XML and any application can retrieve the data for storage or analysis.
Power the appliance with any 24VAC transformer, plug it into a hub/router,
launch any web browser, punch in the default IP and connect. No custom
software to load, no discovery routines, no custom cables or training. The
Sub Metering serves up static web pages with dynamic energy
consumption data updates every second or two. Most users can configure and
utilize the appliance without any training or support in less than 5 minutes.
For effective utilization of energy and natural resources, waste and inefficiency
have to be eliminated. This can only be accomplished by holding energy
consumers accountable. The IP Sub Metering Appliance provides
