Factbird DUO Device
Factbird DUP IIoT Gateway and a Siemens Energy Meter

Energy meter monitors

Factbird’s energy meter monitors offer high-precision power consumption monitoring, shedding light on usage while on standby or at various speed levels.

Our solution uses Siemens energy meters connected to Factbird Industrial IoT Gateways to calculate how much power is actually being used, taking into account power factor and changes in the machine's supply voltage.

Choose between direct monitoring for machines with current draws less than 80A and transformer monitoring for machines with higher current draws.


  • Digital sensor type
  • High precision - complies with accuracy class 1 (for active energy)

Frequently Asked Questions

I require the utmost precision in energy measurements. Does your system cater to this?

Yes, we offer a specialized solution employing a power meter designed to furnish the highest level of accuracy attainable, complying with accuracy class 1, for precision-critical applications in energy measurements. For further information or specific use cases, we encourage you to consult the data sheet of the energy meter or request a personalized demo for guidance.

How accurate are the energy measurements?

Employing the clamp-on current transducer, our system delivers precise estimations of power consumption. However, accuracy is contingent on the specific transducer installed. For detailed specifications, we recommend consulting the component's datasheet that can be found in the 'Download documents' section on this page.

Can I monitor energy consumption in time through a KPI on my line's live page?

Yes, when a line is equipped with energy meters, one or multiple KPI representing energy consumption metrics can be visualized on the line overview page. For a comprehensive understanding or specific use cases, we encourage you to consult the user guide in the 'Download documents' or request a personalized demo.

Is it possible to measure multiple phases?

Absolutely, our offerings include solutions tailored for both single-phase and three-phase measurements.

Is it necessary to power off my machine during the installation of a clamp-on current transducer?

No, there's no need to power down your machine during inspallation. A clamp-on current transducer doesn't require power off because it measures the magnetic field around a conductor, eliminating the need for direct contact with live wires. This method ensures safety, convenience, and efficiency, as it allows for continuous system operation and real-time monitoring without disrupting the circuit.

Note, while the clamp-on current transducers offer this plung-and-play advantage, it's crucial for users to adhere to all safety guidelines when working around electricity, including using appropriate personal protective equipment and following organizational protocols.
