recently i purchased several new old stock munet webgate iris electric
meters made in 2000 and 2001
and i have been trying to get them to configure.
they have a very similar design to the schlumberger centron
series(schlumberger made them, MUnet modified them), but have a dual
stacked single display that alternates between a bunch of info i have
little knowlege what some of it means, mabe you do. some things
alternate more than others...
the display alternates between
a255s255.254.0 subnet
a208a1.32.245 IP
a208g1.320.0 gateway
a10d0.0.2 ?
am0002800072100 ? meter number?
sprt:80.lac:10 ? the lac changes sometimes
dv02.030 ?
crdsaml:56n ?
susers:0 ?
rf:1.m:00000.000 (this is where the KWH are accumulated even goes to
s0 we:0 ? the we changes sometimes
st:0 m:57 ? the me changes sometimes

these meters have yout typical blade type hookup that you find on most
home watthour meters.

the problem i am having is this, you need to hook them up to an
ethernet network and they have thier own webpage in thier design. you
log onto the web page in this case it is then a login
screen comes up. i contacted the manufacturer and they gave me some
logins and passwords but they dont work, and i have no addl support
from them. it just keeps kicking me back to a login screen when i
press login. i have tried exactly as they typed them, caps and not. i
have tried swapping different logins for different passwords in the
list and no luck.i am communicating with the meters web page, just
cant login.
the login screen says in large letters AXON and small letters field
in the middle it asks for login and password that can be "obtained by
the customers utility company". tward the bottom you have 3 buttons,
SUBMIT , RESET , and LOG-OUT . then at the bottom it says in print
copyright 1999,2000 MU net inc. webgate version (VER 02.030)ADDR

another porblem i have noticed is that if you remove power from the
input to the meter, when you restore power it will report a much lower
KWH reading, say i had power on to accumulate 68 KWH, i removed power
to work on the AC wiring and when i reapplied power, the meter has
reverted back to about 25KWH and its been a week and has not returned
to its 68 KWH or higher, it just keeps incrementing from the 25 KWH

and another problem i have noticed is that several of the meters will
get garbage on the screen after several days of useage and lock up not
measuring KWH, some wont lockup even if not connected to ethernet,
MUNET said this was probabally because the meters were not always
connected to a ethernet connection, but i doubt that, because i have
one thats been running great for almost a month withiut it locking up
and its not on the ethernet network

heres the login password information i have, mabe they mis typed
The username / password logon scheme is

Euaxonfs / fieldservice

suaxonfs / FIELDservice


to connect you will need to set your computer with address / subnet
that can reach the unit and then can logon.

in this case the IP address of the meter is a208a1.32.245 or

the lines that give the addressing scheme

AXXXAXXX.XXX.XXX is the address mask
AXXXSXXX.XXX.XXX is the subnet mask
AXXXGXXX.XXX.XXX is the gateway (somewhat important to get right)
AXXXDXXX.XXX.XXX is the DNS server not used
Use the muaxonfs logon and got to System Setup - IP Addressing to
change the IP addressing.

i have given you all the info i have, i would appreciate any ideas you

i really want to get this going as i am a meter nut and would like to
have this meter on my airconditioner and set it up for demand metering
of TOU so i can see how much it uses peak and off peak. once you login
you can change lots of parameters of the meter, wich i look forward to
setting up.

also i am looking for the webbot stats software made by munet, it
allows for graphing and other cool features on the pc.


for more information here is a cut and paste of MUnets web page on the
webgate iris technology...

muNet's WebGate iRIS (Internet Residential Information System) and the
WebGate iCIS (Internet Commercial Information System) are the first
Internet Protocol ("IP") Interfaces to be electric meter-based. These
WebGate IP Interfaces start by providing utilities and their customers
with advanced automated meter reading ("AMR") features via the
Internet and delivering secure, full-time two-way communications and
continuous access to meter data. Beyond these usage-reporting
features, the WebGate IP Gateway also addresses pressing utility
energy management needs by connecting (via open home networking and
LAN's) to individual devices or entire systems, allowing remote
access, monitor, control and management. Such access can also be made
available to third party, value-added service providers. The WebGate
iRIS and iCIS devices turn every electric meter into an IP Gateway
with a unique location on the Internet.

By tapping the expansive, shared IP network infrastructure, the
WebGate System eliminates the need to deploy expensive, proprietary,
single-purpose, narrow bandwidth networks, which radically lowers the
costs to utilities of obtaining frequent detailed metering
information, performing energy management, offering new advanced
services, and generating non-regulated revenue opportunities.

To assure that today's solutions can be readily adapted to tomorrow's
challenges, WebGate IP Interfaces use standards-based open
architecture communication protocols, including HTML and XML. Data
from meters, devices or systems connected to a WebGate IP Interface
can be queried individually by using a standard Internet browser on
any computer with an Internet connection, or via the WebBot™ Central
Control Software to perform batch polling, control and reprogramming.
The output of all WebGate IP Interfaces can be customized to meet the
requirement of the utility including control of access and the
presentation of consumption data in either tabular or graphic format.
The data acquired through the WebBot Central Control Software can be
seamlessly integrated into the utility's legacy CIS, billing or data
warehouse. Both WebGate iRIS and iCIS systems use similar design
philosophy architecture and are based on open standards.

The standard WebGate IP Interface site unit offers different industry
leading metrology options integrated with a WebGate module, which
includes: a data acquisition system, a database, an embedded processor
(that manages the database and serves data to the Internet using HTML
and XML Protocol) and a broadband modem. The WebGate Interface begins
serving information to the utility and its customer as soon as the
WebGate site unit is installed and the Internet connection is

Optional functionality can be added to the WebGate IP Interface,
thereby establishing easy connections to the other meters and systems
in the home or business, and linking companies that offer services
related to these systems to the remote devices. This feature enables
companies providing energy/home systems and services to gain the
permanent, cost-efficient, and dependable connection they require to
remotely access, control and monitor devices, meters and appliances
located within their customers' sites. By using open standard home
networking technologies (via wireless or power line carrier
communications), the WebGate IP Interface is able to recognize and
deliver to the appropriate parties valuable information on a wide
variety of devices, including whole house disconnect and load
restrictor, remote load shedding via thermostat control or hot water
heater disconnect, and remote appliance diagnostics and alarm

WebBot Central Control Software

The WebBot Central Control Software automatically accesses the remote
WebGate site units via the Internet in programmable batches to collect
specified consumption data, program the units, and upgrade their
software. The WebBot software interfaces with leading database
packages, such as Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle 8i, and can easily
be customized to transfer data directly into the utility's legacy
billing, customer information or data warehouse systems. The WebBot
software is fully scalable to meet the needs of large utility
customers with multi-million meters. Since the WebGate IP Interface
stores and processes data locally, batch data transfers are performed
infrequently at times of low network utilization - this ensures very
low communication costs.
