Reverse Energy metering [Wh]

Reverse Energy Meter counts energy delivered back to the grid. Reverse Energy [Wh], also known as Energy Backfeeding is the flow of electric power in the direction reverse to that of the generally understood or typical flow of power. Depending on the source of the power, this reverse flow may be intentional or unintentional.

The Reverse Energy (supplied energy) value is useful typically for monitoring of:

  • Wind turbines
  • Photovoltaic systems
  • Mikro CHP (Cogeneration Units)

It can help identify the unintentional backfeeding in other cases.

 

NETIO Power sockets can measure Reverse Energy - Energy backfeeding

 

More SNMP API options

The new FW bring more options to usage of SNMP protocol:

  • All devices now support SNMP v3 which provides better security compared to SNMP v1/v2
  • Now it is possible to run SNMP in parallel to other Open API protocol. This is beneficial to those of you, who wants to integrate with existing SNMP monitoring system, but control the NETIO power socket from different control system.

 

Firmware 3.1.3 also includes...

  • Improved firmware upgrade process
  • MQTT-flex: Longer username (128 chars) a password (256 chard) support for compatibility with MS Azure
  •  Added non-resetable Energy counters - Energy NR, Reverse Energy NR, Total Energy NR, Total Reverse Energy NR
  • Adjustment of the Phase range: 0° - 360°
  • Adjustment of electrical measurement in web administration
