With the remote metering the standardization process becomes more and more important. With the adaptation of the well proven AS220 meter to the specific Smart Metering requirements, like modular communication, remote connection/disconnection, etc. the new AS220 meter match these new requirements respectively.
The AMI AS230 is a domestic Smart Meter which offers multi-tariff metering and flexible modular communications to interface directly to the utility via WAN or LAN and to connect to a consumer’s Home Automation Network (HAN). The module provides the platform for many different forms of communication’s including GSM/GPRS, PLC and Low Power Radio for WAN/LAN communications. Options for HAN communications can be included each as M-Bus or ZigBee.
With the deregulation of the energy market, in combination with a changing cost situation, new flexible tariff structures and a modern energy management are required. Remote metering and the standardization process become more and more important. The direct connected AS3000 offers these advanced features required along with an optional disconnect Block.
