Energy Monitoring Meter Selection and Accuracy

Energy monitoring meter selection and accuracy is the focus of this #EatonTechTalk.  This session will continue our Energy Month focus with a discussion on meter accuracy.  This session will focus on meeting the expectations of the application.  There are a lot of things to consider including the capabilities of the meter, current transformers, and much more.  We will talk about functionality and features of metering equipment as well as their accuracy with an eye of all aspects of the installation that could impact the accuracy of the data.

You will need to understand the goals and objectives of the installation and pay attention to details during the selection of all components to meet those goals and objectives.

The Alexa Dimmer Switch

This #EATONTechTalk focuses on Wi-Fi smart switches, receptacles, and dimmers.  These devices are a fact of life and more and more recognized by the National Electrical Code.  #Eaton has a complete offering and Rebecca Bitter is going to help us understand these technologies.

Amazon’s Alexa App is now integrated directly into a dimmer.  No hubs or controllers required. Let’s have a discussion regarding how a frustration-free setup that meets the NEC can be achieved.

Energy codes are also influencing the use of these types of solutions.  Owners benefit through saving energy.  Another important benefit is the safety that is provided.

Here is a link to purchase these devices on Amazon!

NEC 2020 speaks to this type of technology and NEC 2023 is building on this foundation.  This session will review the NEC 2020 changes and take a peak into what NEC 2023 has to offer.
