KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter

Maximising the use of solar power with the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter

Smart energy measurement for the best possible results for self-consumption. Compatible with many KOSTAL inverters.


Optimum control over home consumption with the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter

The KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter (KSEM) is an energy meter with a variety of functions. Thanks to the device's additional computer processing power, it already has the technology for future functions and tasks and offers the optimum solution for all KOSTAL inverters.

A great advantage of the KSEM is that it's pre-configured for the PLENTICORE plus, PIKO IQ and PIKO MP plus as standard. So direct installation is possible without needing to adapt parameters or undertake other settings.

One device, many possibilities

The KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter allows you to make optimum use of energy in your home. The energy meter takes 3-phase energy measurements in real time. The measurement data is transferred to the inverters via standard interfaces,

which allows the KSEM to support the energy management of the PLENTICORE plus, PLENTICORE BI, PIKO IQ and PIKO MP plus KOSTAL inverters. When used with a PIKO 4.2 - 20 or PIKO 36 EPC, the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter replaces the PIKO BA sensor.

Inverters can be set up in the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter with the aim of maximising self-consumption of the solar energy and displaying the self/home consumption in the Solar Portal. To do this, the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter must be integrated into the KOSTAL Solar Portal.

Compatibility with KOSTAL inverters

The KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter can be combined with various KOSTAL inverters

    • 24-hour home consumption measurement
    • Dynamic active power control
    • Connection via pre-configured Modbus RTU interfaces (RS485)
    • Multiple-inverter connection with KOSTAL solar inverter (1)
    • Measurement data provided when using battery functionality in combination with PLENTICORE plus
    • Recharge PLENTICORE plus battery from additional local generators

    (1) PLENTICORE plus without battery

    • Measurement data provided when using battery functionality in combination with the PLENTICORE BI
    • Recharge the PLENTICORE B battery from additional local generators

    To use PLENTICORE BI as a three-phase AC storage system, no changes need to be made to the existing PV system. All that's needed is the PLENTICORE BI, the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter and a compatible high-voltage battery such as the BYD Battery Box Premium.

    • 24-hour home consumption measurement
    • Dynamic active power control
    • Connection via pre-configured Modbus RTU interfaces (RS485)
    • Multiple-inverter connection with KOSTAL solar inverters
    • 24-hour home consumption measurement 
    • Dynamic active power control 
    • Connection via pre-configured Modbus RTU interfaces (RS485)
    • Battery management with optional battery functionality on the PIKO MP plus (2)

    One of the major benefits of the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter is that it's pre-configured for the PLENTICORE plus and PIKO MP plus as standard. So direct installation is possible without needing to adapt parameters or undertake other settings. When using the battery function, the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter is connected to the inverter and the battery and set up there. The KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter then controls the charging and discharging functions.

    • 24-hour home consumption measurement
    • Dynamic active power control
    • Connection via the integrated LAN interfaces
    • Multiple-inverter connection with KOSTAL solar inverters
    • Home and self-consumption detected and transferred the KOSTAL Solar Portal to be displayed
    • Current measurement range up to 63A, measurement range can be extended via current transformer 

    To connect the inverters of this generation, the inverters are connected to the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter using the network interfaces and the IP addresses are integrated The KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter then determines the house/self-consumption data and controls maximum output power.
