Reading a wireless meter

Can Ignition read a wireless meter? I want to use a meter to collect electrical data and need to do it wireless

Probably. Depends on the models and protocols and network equipment involved. Provide more specific information to get better answers.

good advise, I am a rookie at is what I am looking at
Connect2Assets is a software that integrates data from SCADA, PLC, BMS, and similar systems into the eMaint CMMS.

Here’s how it works: eMaint connects to your SCADA system with the help of Connect2Assets—giving you access to temperature, water flow, pipe pressure, and more asset data

Ignition is a SCADA system. What's the relationship between your wireless data connection needs and this other software?

We use Ignition in 6 of our manufacturing plants. I want to be able to collect data from my motors for their electric use..there is a Fluke meter that collects the data wireless and uses the SCADA system..I was wondering if I can add the meters to my Ignition system to see on my dashboard

Meter model # please.

Either the Setra power meter


a dent power scout 3037

Well, the Setra apparently comes with Modbus TCP, so hooking to Ignition would be trivial. Just need a WiFi adapter at the meter to make it wireless.

{ The multiple-load units look particularly nice. }

Thank you, I like both but have really come to use and discover the Ignition benefits, many thanks for your assistance

Looks like these are Modbus TCP as well.
