Metering Online is a Cloud hosted solution that stores energy-meter information in the cloud. The meter online connector uses web-services to connect and extract data for an energy meter’s data in the cloud.
To create a connection to Metering Online, Right-click on the Data Sources group, then click “Cloud”, and then select “Metering Online”.
To successfully retrieve data from Metering Online, the following properties need to be set.
||Name to identify the data source.|
||Username to use to connect to the endpoint.|
||Security key to connect to the endpoint.|
||Select to use SSL security to connect to the endpoint.|
||Maximum concurrent count for connections, default 1000.|
The namespace that will be generated will only display a selection of two options, either to retrieve kWh or kvarh.
When using the items in the namespace to generate a measure, the meter’s serial number as well as the type of values to be returned must be specified in the retrieval section of the measure.

||Either select reactive energy or kilo Watts hours to be returned.|
