The Wattwatchers Auditor 6M is the highly-flexible workhorse of our device range, and is deployed for solar PV use cases at thousands of homes and also business sites. At most sites the 6M allows grid import/export and solar generation to be monitored by a single device. Options now expand the capabilities of the 6M to remote control via switching (see below), and a multi-purpose ModBus-enabled version (see right).
By adding ModBus to the versatile Auditor 6M, Wattwatchers enables integration with other hardware, including the '6M+One' bundle (pictured above) that supports PPA billing and LGC creation, as well as performance monitoring, by adding an NMI pattern-approved meter from a third-party supplier. ModBus drivers are being developed for other hardwares including inverters and small-scale digital weather stations.
The Wattwatchers ADEPT platform is a major new service that combines real-time energy data with Internet of Things (IOT) capabilities, offering an agile, multi-purpose technology for managing and optimising distributed energy. Early use cases include solar operations centres, HVAC optimisation and load orchestration. ADEPT is where Grid 2.0 meets Industry 4.0 to fast-track flexible, data-driven solutions cost-effectively.
The Wattwatchers Auditor 6M+3SW (cellular) or 6W+3SW (WiFi)* provide circuit-level monitoring and control for behind-the-meter loads.
When matched with solar, this provides the tools for optimising onsite consumption of rooftop solar generation, and also managing controllable load circuits such as electric hot water, pool pumps and HVAC. This is a proven, cost-effective solution for distributed energy resources and demand response.
*While cellular is the go-to communications option for most enterprise-grade use cases, Wattwatchers also offers the WiFi-communicating Auditor 6W for monitoring, and the 6W+3SW to add switching (see above). The WiFi option is being selected for a growing number of locally-networked commercial sites, and is often preferred by tech-savvy consumers for their own home use, including solar optimisation.
