KONČAR AMI

Wise cost savings.

KONČAR AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) is a smart solution for increased savings in Energy Management systems. It consists of devices that collect energy and water consumption data from dislocated meters and send them in the central system MARS (Management and Automated Reading Software). MARS provides the user with an optimal set of data processing capabilities which allow full control of energy consumption as a basic prerequisite for cost savings.

Cost-effectiveness

Better planning and automation systems.

Cost reduction

Reducing the number of complaints and related costs.

Proaktivity

Improving the quality of services and market position.

Leakage Management

Restoration unnecessary losses.

Payment by spending

The user pays exactly as much as is spent.

Potential savings

Savings of up to 40% (depending on the energy source and how to use).

For utility companies

KONČAR AMI is useful for utilities that want an accurate, near real time readings which can be the basis for distributed generation and renewable sources.

For the end user

KONČAR AMI is very useful for the end user who wants to cut costs, prevent unnecessary losses and live responsibly.

Why choose KONČAR AMI ?

  • Minimum costs using long-range radio, existing GPRS or Ethernet networks
  • Interoperability – reading measuring equipment from other manufacturers
  • Integration with other information systems (billing, main Energy Information System E2)
  • Web hosting possibility
  • Automatic generation and delivery of customized reports and alarms
  • Minimum CAPEX and OPEX costs
  • Made in EU

Technical description

KONČAR AMI consists of the following components:

It is a software package for the collection, storage, processing and visualization of measurement data,
all with the goal of complete control over energy consumption as a basic prerequisite for cost savings. The full functionality is available via a web browser. If opting for Web Hosting, it cuts the installation costs (no investments in servers and network equipment) and operating costs because KONČAR takes care of the maintenance for you.
It’s a modular device that collects data from meters through the Registrar or a Repeater and transmits them to MARS. You can choose between 8 communication modules to read and transfer data:
To collect the data: BeeKON basic module (IEEE 802.15.4), Wireless M-Bus, Pulse Inputs and RS-232/485 module.
To transfer data to the center: a long-range radio IEEE 802.15.4k, GPRS, Ethernet/ADSL and optional SD cards.
In the case of data transfer to the main computer via a long-range radio, the user is exempt from licensing, as well as any costs of a telecom operator, which positions KONČAR AMI ahead of the competition.
It’s a device, which is mounted next to the meter with pulse, serial or wireless M-bus output and sends them over the wireless network to a Concentrator. The data can be collected from all types of meters from different manufacturers (meter electric energy, water meters, gas meters, etc.). RTG is using local BeeKON network with the frequency of 868 MHz a maximum range of 1 km (LOS – Line Of Sight) and IEEE 802.15.4 protocol to communicate with the master Concentrator. RGT is powered by a built-in battery with a life expectancy greater than 5 years. For use in humid conditions (for example in manholes), the RGT in IP68 enclosure is available.
It’s an auxiliary device used to amplify the wireless signal when a Concentrator is outside the range of a Registrar. It uses BeeKON network for communication and a replaceable battery with a life span greater than 5 years. It can be networked with up to 10 subunits, which significantly increases the range of KCT, ie. the range of the local network.
Advanced RPMA (Random Phase Multiple Access) technology enables the reception of electromagnetic waves below the level of noise (down to -170 dBm) allowing coverage of more than 12 km with a minimum transmission power (in countries with NIST regulations and over 60 km).

The use of this system also increases efficiency and benefits:

  • Unlimited data transfer
  • Covering an area without GPRS signal (radius > 12 km LOS)
  • 4x less battery consumption compared to GPRS
  • Much lower response time
  • A large number of devices per access point (> 10000)
  • No data transfer costs
  • Increased data security
  • Standardized IEEE 802.15.4k solution
