Data Logging

The Solution

KritiKal Solutions leveraged its embedded hardware and software expertise to devise a next-generation data logging system that can interface with multiple energy meters through RS485 with MODBUS protocol. The communication protocol ensures smooth communication and thus help in measuring the energy consumption of each connected device in real-time. After getting the data from the connected nodes, the device sends it to the cloud server via a wireless network, updating the energy meters’ logs at a continuous interval of time. 

  • RS485 with MODBUS Protocol for creating communication channel
  • Support wide range of Energy Meter’s models
  • Offline data backups in case of no internet accessibility
  • Push data to the centralized server using RESTful APIs
  • Configurable parameters for real-time data logging and capturing
  • Data logger connects to the internet through Wi-fi network
  • Easily configurable parameters for monitoring such as energy meter models, parameters required in each energy meter, backup duration, server setting, etc.

Benefits Delivered

KritiKal’s designed wireless data logger system is highly beneficial to optimize the energy meters located in commercial as well as residential units. As the device reads data like energy consumption, load, voltage fluctuations, harmonics, and much more in real-time, this can be used for effective optimization of energy meters’ readings. This piece of hardware significantly helps users in real-time analytics and monitoring purposes, thereby slashing down monthly electricity bills. Most importantly, our wireless data logger helps in saving energy for future consumption.
