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.

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 for this. The meter reports one kWh datapoint, the Element Net Sum, which is Imported Energy - Exported Energy.
