BX12 energy cost measuring device

Complete control of all energy costs

Even the lowest energy consumption such as the convenient standby operation of your TV still costs money. For the energy providers' electricity meters meticulously register even the smallest power consumer. Something even your 'average Joe' can do using the energy cost measuring device BX12. 

Due to its high sensitivity for the measurement of even the smallest consumption values, the measuring device captures a power input of as low as 0.23 W. At the push of a button the BX12 indicates the relevant values of the connected devices including voltage, current, power input, power frequency and overload values on its large backlit LCD display.

Neatly arranged display with consumption graph for 7 days or months.

In case of an overload the BX12 warns you both visually and acoustically.

Program 2 electricity tariffs, e.g. daily rate and night rate.

Detecting power guzzlers and saving money

In order to determine the actual costs you can enter your own two electricity tariffs (e.g. daily rate and night rate). Combined with the likewise integrated time tracking this gives you complete control over all costs arising from each individual power consumer as well as over the total consumption. The operation using buffer batteries prevents data loss upon disconnection.

A better overview thanks to the graphic representation of the consumption history 

A special highlight of the BX12: The measuring device records the energy consumption of the past 7 days or 7 months and indicates the consumption history on the LCD display in form of a bar graph. At one glance you can catch up on the power consumption of the recent days and months. You will know exactly where there are savings potentials – regarding both energy and your hard-earned cash.

Don't let the environment out of your sight either

The BX12 can do even more. In order to better evaluate the correlation between energy consumption and climate-damaging CO2 emissions, it calculates the harmful CO2 emissions in relation to the consumed power and displays the value in kg/kWh. In case of an overload the device warns you both visually and acoustically – both the current value (max. 16 A) and the power (3,680 W) can be specified individually. For an effective control of the consumption the device captures the respective peak values of current and power input. The information on the display illuminated at the push of a button can easily be read even in dark surroundings.

A few practical benefits:

  • Quick and easy measurement and monitoring of your energy demand
  • Display of watts, volts, amperes, power factor (cos φ), kWh, price or costs / kWh
  • Measurement of the correct rate according to the time of day by use of the integrated digital clock with calendar function
  • Memory function for two definable electricity tariffs, e.g. daily rate and night rate
  • Graphic representation of the consumption of the past 7 days / months
  • Calculation of the CO2 emission in relation to the consumed power
  • Effective monitoring of peak values
  • Measuring range 0.23 to 3,680 W
  • Maximum accuracy – measurement deviation < 1 %
  • Overload protection with acoustic warning signal
  • No data loss upon disconnection owing to battery operation
  • Optimum value-for-money ratio
