E-Mon’s V-Class Modbus Meter Takes the “Silver” in Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s 2009 Product of the Year Contest

E-Mon, LLC, the electric submetering market leader and manufacturer of the widely installed E-Mon D-Mon® product line, announces that its new V-Class Modbus Meter was voted a winner in Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine’s 2009 Product of the Year competition. Up to five finalists in each of 14 categories were selected by a committee of professional engineers in the mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) disciplines. The finalists were then submitted to a vote by C-SE’s readership of more than 46,000 engineering subscribers. The E-Mon D-Mon V-Class Modbus Meter tallied enough votes to win the Silver Award in the “Networked Building Automation and Energy Management Systems” category.

“Tightening budgets and growing awareness of facility sustainability issues are driving the demand for products and services to optimize building design and performance,” said Don Millstein, president and CEO of E-Mon, in recognition of the award. “Measurement and verification of the energy envelope, a key performance requirement for LEED and other building performance rating systems, will continue to rely on monitoring devices like the E-Mon D-Mon V-Class Modbus Meter for accurate and reliable energy profiling and communications with existing and future BAS protocols.”

Introduced in the summer of 2008, the E-Mon D-Mon V-Class Meter is designed specifically for the building automation (BAS) and systems integrator (SI) market, allowing users to benchmark energy usage data, monitor usage trends, bill tenants and allocate costs. Other uses include measuring, verifying and recording the effectiveness of on-going energy savings programs, including LEED, EPAct 2005, demand response, renewable energy and others. Available in all popular voltage/phase/wiring configurations, V-Class meters display kWh, Volts, Amps, VAR and power factor by phase, while supporting:

* Modbus RTU (Standard);
* Modbus TCP;
* BACnet IP;
* EZ-7 RS-485 (Proprietary Protocol);
* EZ-7 Ethernet (Proprietary Protocol).

Features of the V-Class Modbus Meter include, but are not limited to:

* 8-digit display;
