WITH the rise in electricity costs, the current drought and the drive to greener living, residents all need to adjust both their energy and water consumption habits.Doing just that, is now as easy as one, two three.The NanoView from CBI-electric is an exciting new energy and water monitoring device suitable for household as well as commercial consumers.Recently receiving much acclaim at the African Utility Week, the newly launched CBI-electric NanoView allows individuals to easily manage their electricity and water usage. By displaying live data in both monetary and consumption terms (i.e. energy in W and kW; and water in litres and kilolitres) the user can quickly determine which appliances not only use more energy, but also which appliance costs the most to operate. With this data on hand the customer can make energy wise decisions. The cumulative usage mode on the monitor displays consumption for the past day, week or month and is a great tool to manage budgets and evaluate progress in achieving a greener lifestyle.The NanoView is the ideal tool to educate the whole family in greener habits and manage their water and energy consumption more closely.For energy monitoring the unit can be connected to up to 16 power circuits with a sensor measuring range of 5 W - 14 kW (60A max).The monitor has a power sensor accuracy of 99% (Class 1) and an operating Voltage of 230 V AC ± 20% at 50 Hz, with a 1-second refresh rate and a 24-hour battery backup for time keeping. An added benefit is that consumption data is saved indefinitely during power failures.The water meter provides for up to four water meter transmitters with a range up to 100m. It has a 1 litre accuracy and is compatible with a number of popular water meter brands. Features Real time and accumulated consumption of up to 16 circuits and four water meters.
