You can use a Senseware Pulse Bridge or Modbus Bridge to connect to Emon power meters Class 5000. Here is how:

1a. Verify that your Emon meter has a pulse output I/O board.
1b. Alternatively, your meter can use the Modbus RTU connector. The Meter Class 5000 supports different types of communication protocols, the protocols supported by your meter are indicated on the front sticker of the meter itself. 

2a. Connect the 2 wires from one of the connectors of the Pulse Sensor Bridge to the Emon pulse output connector 1. Make sure the bridge is configured as 'Bridge Voltage Source' on the Module Configuration page. Connect the Senseware bridge to a Node and power the Node. It will automatically start collecting the pulse and send it to the Senseware Cloud.
2b. If you are using Modbus RTU, connect the 3 wires to the Modbus Sensor Bridge

3a. Find your pulse conversion to kWh based on the meter model and amperage. This information can be found in the meter manual.
3b. If you are using Modbus RTU, configure the registers you want to read from the Modbus Configuration page.

4a. There are 2 options to view your data in the Dashboard: create a conversion function on the Module Configuration page to simply view the delta pulse between samples, or create a Meter tile. For that option, contact your Senseware representative.  
4b. If you are using Modbus RTU, simply create your tiles on the Dashboard based on the data you are collecting from the meter.
