Smart Metering

Our Smart Metering products are architected on our modular metering principle. The additional flexibility provided by modularity enables modules to be tailored for specific customer needs without the need for meter re-approval. Additionally, modularity enables the separation of Smart functionality from legally approved metrology and is especially important where firmware updates are concerned. In a modular Smart Meter, firmware can be updated without fear of disrupting metrology and register data.

While actively working with third parties to introduce best in class communication technologies to Smart Metering, initial modules feature GPRS connection to the utilities back office system using open communication protocols and ZigBee Smart Energy communication to in-home devices.

Initially focussed on the UK's SMIP smart metering functional set, the smart module expands the base meter functionality and provides a field exchangeable communications hub. The module can be used with any of the emlite meter variants including load control and twin element versions.

Through the flexibility of modularity, modules can be quickly developed for individual client needs, providing tailored functionality and communications.
