The ECM-1240 is a seven channel electrical power monitor. It is designed to monitor entire
panel consumption in addition to sub-panels or individual branch circuits.
The seven “true” power monitoring channels consist of two main channels (CH1 & CH2) and
five auxiliary channels (AUX1-5). The two main channels are capable of “net” metering which
allows measurement of power consumed or generated, such as is the case for renewable
energy installations. Although not restricted for net metering, CH1 and CH2 are typically used
for monitoring the entire home consumption on one channel and a sub-panel or large load on
the other channel.
The five “AUX” channels may each monitor one or more 120V, a 240V load or combinations of
each.
All channels measure “true” power energy which is what you are charged for by the power
company. The measured energy consumption is made available in real-time for storing,
viewing and analyzing using a computer. The data is also logged internally for later retrieval.
The standard ECM-1240 device is equipped with an RS-232 communication port which may
be connected directly to a computer’s RS-232 port. We optionally have available, RS-232 to
USB converter or RS-232 to Ethernet gateways for USB or Ethernet connection.
The ECM-1240 is also available with a wireless communication option which includes a built
in radio module (XBee module from Digi® International www.digi.com) These radios operate
on a ZigBee® mesh network.

package provides the ability to monitor two 200A panels, two 100A sub-panels or loads, two
80A sub-panels or loads along with 24 Micro-40 CTs for a multitude of branch circuits.
ADDITIONAL CT OPTIONS: More CT options are now available for special situations. We now
have special CTs with a rectangular opening providing a solution to some panel types using a
flat bus-bar feed instead of typical circular wire. We also recommend using Micro-80 CTs for
those with aluminium electrical wiring. The larger size-per-amp of aluminium conductors may
not be compatible with the 0.26” inner diameter of the Micro-40 CTs.

Communication Options
The communication options fall under two general categories:
•
•
Wired
Wireless
Wired Communication Options (non wireless):
Serial to USB adaptor:
Used to connect the ECM-1240 to a computer’s USB port
for communication.
For extended cable lengths, the RS-232 cable should be
extended since RS-232 does not have the same limitation
that USB does.
The adaptor is powered via the USB port.
EP-1 EtherPort™ Gateway
The EtherPort™ provides a gateway for the ECM-1240’s
RS-232 data to be accessible on a network or internet via
TCP/IP.
Comes with:
• 5V regulated power supply
• 3ft Ethernet Cable
The “EtherX Configuration Software” is used to setup the
IP settings. This application is downloadable from our
website.
MUX-1 Passive RS-232 Multiplex Cable
The MUX-1 provides a means for two or three ECM-1240
to share the same RS-232 communication port. It may be
used to connect directly to an RS-232 port, Serial-to-USB
Adaptor or EtherPort™ (serial to Ethernet).
No PIC
Wireless Communication Options:
XB-1240-1, XB-1240-2, XB1240-3
The XB-1240 option is the inclusion of the wireless
XBee® module built into the ECM-1240 monitor,
allowing wireless communication with one of the
following optional gateways:
•
•
Wireless Communication Option
Wireless Dongle (Wireless to USB)
EtherBee™ (Wireless to Ethernet)
The part number suffix of “-1”, “-2” and “-3” refers to
the number of ECM-1240 devices included in the
package. For example, ECM-1240 PKG J/200 would
require part number “XB-1240-2” in order to have the
wireless option installed in both ECM-1240 devices.
The module communicates using ZigBee® mesh
networking protocol.
Unlike RS-232 communication, there is no need for a
multiplex adaptor when using more than one ECM-1240,
or combination of ECM-1240/ECM-1220 wirelessly. The
gateway (coordinator) has the ability to listen to all
devices and send a command to any individual monitor.

U2Z ECM Wireless Dongle
The Wireless Dongle provides a gateway for wireless
communication with an ECM-1240 having the XB-1240
wireless option, via a USB port.
The Dongle plugs into the computer and is configured as
a ZigBee® coordinator.
The XBee radio may also be configured or flash
upgraded direct via USB communication.
EtherBee™
*ZigBee® is a trademark of the ZigBee Alliance
This option includes a built-in
wireless radio on to the ECM-1240
from any of the available “ECM1240 Packages”.
NOTE: The wireless module should not be
installed by the user. Certain modifications are
required along with device re-calibration.
EB-1 EtherBee™ Gateway
The EtherBee™ provides wireless communication with
an ECM-1240 via TCP/IP. (The ECM-1240 must have the
XB-1240 wireless option installed)
The EtherBee™ comes with:
• 5V regulated power supply
• 3ft Ethernet Cable
The “EtherX Configuration Software” is used to setup
the IP settings. This application is downloadable from
our website.
XBee® Repeater
The XBee Repeater is used to increase the
communication range of the ECM-1240 (with wireless
option). Since communication is on a “mesh” network,
the repeater connects itself to the Personal Area
Network (PAN) and is able to forward packets to two
ZigBee® devices which are out of range with each
other.
The repeater is powered via a standard outlet. The
power connection may also be plugged into a USB port
for configuring the settings if needed.

SPLIT-CORE CTs:
SPLIT-200 CT Pair:
This set of two CTs is for use on CH1 or CH2 of the ECM-1240 (Not
compatible with the AUX channels). Two CTs are required for a single
200A panel. The two CTs are typically connected together on a single
channel (CH1 or CH2). They may also be each connected to a separate
dedicated channel if desired, providing a breakdown measurement of
“Line1” and “Line2”.

SPLIT-150 CT Pair:
This set of two CTs is for use on CH1 or CH2 of the ECM-1240 (Not
compatible with the AUX channels). Two CTs are required for a service
panel and are typically connected together to a single channel (CH1 or
CH2).
The rectangular CT design provides a solution for panels using flat
“buss-bars” instead to round wires. The rectangular shape of the bussbar inhibits the installation of standard circular shaped split-core CTs.
The SPLIT-150 solves this dilemma due to its unique shape.
The SPLIT-150 is rated for 170A, but may be used on a 200A panel
since panel current rarely exceeds 80% of the rated current.

This set of two CTs is for use on CH1 or CH2 of the ECM-1240 (Not

The SPLIT-60 CTs are typically used in situations where it may be too
cumbersome to install a donut style CT on a given panel or panel circuit.

together to a single channel. They may also be each connected to a
separate channel if desired.

CLAMP-ON STYLE CT:
CLAMP-100 CT:
The CLAMP-100 clamp-on current probe is designed for easy clamping
onto a current carrying conductor for metering the current flow. This CT
is perfect for field monitoring where the CT is temporarily installed.
Although compatable for use with the ECM-1240’s CH1 and CH2, it’s
higher cost and larger footprint compared to the “split” or “donut” type
CTs, makes it less attractive for permanent installations.
The CLAMP-100 uses a high quality “FeNanoCrystalline” core material,
the CLAMP-100 provides high accuracy, low phase shift and excellent
linearity.
