Definium’s Luna Energy is a drop-in solution for metering energy usage and monitoring for potentially hazardous earth current leakage situations. Multiple back-haul technologies and additional monitoring/metering options are available, making the Luna Energy one of the most flexible energy metering devices on the market.
The Luna Energy is based on Definium’s Internet of Things sensor platform, utilising a robust long-range low-power LoRa radio with LoRaWAN support to report metrics with no additional wiring required. Optional additional sensors are available via CANbus add-ons, including air filter monitoring, environmental monitoring, enclosure tamper detection, and more. An optional backup battery enables a “last gasp” transmission when power outage is detected.
The Luna Energy constantly measures power usage, reporting earth current leakage and other potentially dangerous situations within seconds.
Energy metering comes with sub-metering capability and power quality metrics, both of which can help optimise power bills by identifying high-cost energy use.
The Luna Energy is powered directly via the monitored source and only requires active and neutral connections, plus an antenna.
The Luna Energy can be integrated with existing RTUs using RS232 with a DE-9 connector and standard serial cable.
Each unit comes pre-configured with unique internal ids and encryption keys, reducing overall commissioning time. Settings can be altered remotely at any time.
Definium Technologies designs and manufactures its devices in-house in Launceston, Tasmania. Definium produces a broad range of gateways and sensors to use in any IoT network.
