Large consumers of electricity e.g. factories, hotels, hospitals,
municipalities, need to know the history of their consumption and the
quality and the values of the power supply. Details such as Voltage,
Current, Power Factor, Hertz, Neutral Current, Energy consumption can be
displayed by the ELNet LT

Energy & Powermeter.

An additional feature of the Powermeter is the ability to measure
Harmonics. Part of the Electricity Supply Authority’s bill reflects poor or
good Harmonics in the consumer’s system, therefore it is in his interest to
monitor Harmonics and try to improve it.

The ELNet LT Energy & Powermeter is a compact, multi functional, three-phase
Powermeter simple to install and is especially designed to integrate into
Building Management Systems. It requires no special mounting and is ideally
suited for mounting on the front face of any standard electrical panel.

The Configuration and Setup is menu driven, with password protection.



1. *Unauthenticated Web Management access*

ELNet power meters can be managed via Java applet over a web browser. Meter
console and all its functions are accessible.

By default, no authentication is required to access the web console.

*2. Weak Credential Management*

In order to perform certain specific functions in ELNet power meters,
passwords are required. These passwords are, really just a formality.

For example:

Default password code to access Technical Menu for device configuration is –

1 (One)

*Default password – 6474*

- To reset I,V,F Peak Values

- To display /reset power peak value


It appears that password/code functionality is implemented for the sake of
getting the compliance check-list ticked.

Not only the default passwords are poor/weak, the system does not have a
mechanism to enforce a mandatory password change.

3. *Password Recovery Functionality*

But what if, just what if, someone does want security and changes the
default passwords, and forgets/lose them??

According to vendor:

*It is not recommended to forget your new passwords.*

The manual also doesn't seem to document Password Recovery either.
