KYZ Pulse Value

We're often asked "What is the proper pulse value to set a customer?" or "How do you know what to set the pulse output value for?" The answer is -- it depends. It depends primarily on kW size of the customer and what they want to do with the pulses.

Customer Interface Device - CID-3

Years ago, we introduced the CID-1 Customer Interface Device in response to continued requests from customers for a low-cost convenient termination device which would provide over current protection. It was followed a year later by the CID-2, a two-channel version of the popular low-cost interfacing device. A few more years have gone by, but it’s that time again! In response to customer requests, we’re introducing the CID-3, a three-channel termination device.

MPG-1 Software Upgrades

In our efforts to continually upgrade our products, we’ve completed a major software upgrade for our MPG-1 Wireless Meter Pulse Generator.  The MPG-1 uses Zigbee wireless technology to receive power use information from a Zigbee-enabled electric meter and generates KYZ pulses of a selected value for customer-side metering or energy management systems.
