Customers with an existing gas service on our gas network can apply for a pulse output connection.
A pulse output connection provides real-time access to gas flow data from your meter set. You will need to build and install interface equipment and also have an appropriate building management system or data logger to capture the pulse data.
The pulse output signal will be provided to you for operational information only. The pulse output signal is not billing data and calculations need to be made to convert the raw data into gas consumed which is used for billing.
A pulse output connection is not always available from our standard metering equipment and a meter upgrade may be required before we can supply a pulse output connection.
How do I apply?
You can make an application to have a pulse connection using connect and manage my gas.
Otherwise, you can arrange your request through your retailer.
You can also download and complete an application form or contact us and we’ll send you one.
