If you work at a large-scale medical facility, data center, or mutli-use commercial building, there is a good chance that your facility’s energy consumption is closely being monitored through a complex series of power meters and submeters. If you are looking for a more efficient way to manage your power meters, Electro Industries/GaugeTech introduces the MeterManager EXT software.


MeterManager EXT is a computer software application that functions as an automation engine for users to easily manage their power monitoring systems. MeterManager consists of four main components:

  1. Automated meter network connection. The software is capable of searching for new meters and automatically adding them into the system based on IP address.

  2. Automatic meter grouping. If your organization has dozens, or even hundreds of meters simultaneously running, keeping track of them all can be hard. Our software can organize your meters and separate them into groups based on type, location, consumption level, or a variety of other parameters.

  3. App Launcher. MeterManager EXT seamlessly integrates and connects to our other applications such as Communicator EXT, Log View, EnergyReporter, and more.

  4. Multi-threaded data collector. Data collected by these meters is automatically gathered and stored, all while operating in the background so you are free to use your computer for other purposes.


As you can tell, MeterManager EXT mainly relies on automation, requiring little work from the user. This allows the software to offer the following benefits:

  • Low learning curve. Get the data you need when you need it without being a software systems expert.

  • System stability. The MeterManager EXT automatically scans your fleet of meters to make sure everything is properly functioning. If any errors are detected, you will instantly receive an email notification.

  • Diagnostic reporting tools. Our software produces a variety of helpful reports such as error logs, status logs, key statistics, and other diagnostic tools.
