kWh and kW datapoint selection


New member
Various submeter manufacturers utilize different conventions when referring to energy consumption, generation, and power (demand). The following table is to provide a reference of the same datapoint types across our diverse line of metering products.

Series 3500Series 4000Series 4100Series 6000Series 7000/7100Series 7200/7300Series 8000

CT orientation and phasing to the voltage must be correct for the meter to register usage accurately. Otherwise energy counters may accumulate in the opposite direction expected.

* Not applicable - product is a uni-directional measurement device
** Datapoint is only available when used with or communicated through a Leviton Energy Monitoring Hub. Please reach out to technical support for more information.
*** Due to the flexibility of maximizing meter inputs to this meter, there aren't separate datapoints. Imported Energy - Exported Energy = Element Net Sum .
