Brultech or some other product Support?

Postby DaveB » Thu Dec 02, 2010 7:58 pm

Dave and Mario - I am about to buy into some solution. Is TED support the end of the road for this module or do you have plans to expand the options? If so, when?
Thanks!

We can expand to anything we want. It's only a matter of getting the protocol and having some time to test the hardware. Since we only have TED equipment that's all we have right now.

I would be willing to help in any way for brultech support. I have 2 ECM 1240s in action.

I need access to your system for testing and a copy of their XML protocol. I believe I already have the protocol I just have to make sure it hasn't changed.

I've been using the Brultech for about 2 years and would love to see a supported plugin. Bob's works great but I believe he moved on to another option and it's development is in limbo.

If you decide to do it hopefully you'll open the dicussion for suggestions on options and features.

AS long as someone gives me access to their system for testing you can consider it a done deal.

I would gladly volunteer but I have the older 1220 model (early adopter :) ) and the 1240 has many more features. Someone with the 1240 would be a much more ideal candidate for the development.

I have been able to get my TED working fairly accurately but it looks like this Brultech product provides a much better picture of your true enery consumption as it monitors all of the legs of the panel not just the mains. Looks like it adds a lot of hardware to the power panel though. How difficult was this to install and how well does it work?? Does it required a paid subscription to thise Google Power Monitoring tools??

I must have some devices on my power grid that interfere with the signal the TED gets from the transmitts as it isn't always accurate.

Not to side track this tread from the topic of a plug in to support the Brultech.

sure. I am using the engine software and can open up that. Let me know if you need direct access to the ecm-1240 or the engine software.

Does the ecm work like the TED in that it appears as a web device that you can query to extract XML data? If it does then all I need is access to the ecm.

Happy to see that this created some discussion.

I like the Brultech when evaluating it for $$$ vs features. I will most likley go that direction as several others have.
Thanks!

Dave in your discussions here are you talking about the TED 1000 or the TED 5000??

TED 5000-G is what I was compairing to the Brultech 1240. Both are good products. I like the ability of the Brultech to host multiple CT's for more precise monitoring of larger loads.
Thanks!

My initial thought is to support the ECM-1240 connected via its optional network interface. Is this the typical home setup?
