CETA Advantage for Energy Management Systems

Regardless of whether an EMS is for a Commercial Tower, a Campus type of facility with multiple buildings or a Residential High Rise the basic system components are the same.

  •  Metering (Electrical and Mechanical Power Meters, Water and Gas)
  •  Data Communication Equipment
  •  EMS Software


The system shall generally comprise:

  • Energy meters, intelligent energy meters and power quality energy meters installed in electrical switchboards connected via RS-485 serial networks.
  • Water, Gas, Thermal, Chilled Water and Steam meters (incorporating pulsed outputs provided by other Trades)
  • Data gathering devices for logging outputs from pulsed output meters
  • Serial device servers for collecting information from RS-485 metering networks and outputting to a Fibre or Ethernet network.
  • Proprietary software package for data acquisition, monitoring and reporting.


CETA's portfolio of Energy and Power Quality Metering products and solutions puts CETA in a leadership position for EMS.  Electrical Contractors, Facilities Owners, and System Integrators trust CETA for their total metering offering because:

  • CETA's Pattern Approved Metering products
  • CETA has a depth of technology and expertise. From Pattern Approved Meters, communications devices, and EMS software products, no distributor is better positioned as a complete product portfolio provider for Energy metering and Power Quality
  • CETA product portfolio includes an Energy Management System product (PecStar) for the projects that require advanced integration with legacy metering systems

Unlike other metering providers that lock customers in to a single vendor solution, CETA products adopt open standards to reduce the total integration costs and enable clients to truly get a best of breed solution.
