Gas

Remote reading of gas brings a series of challenges for the entire chain of distribution and supply. From click on meter reading modules and explosive atmosphere compliant products to consumption nomination systems, KONČAR has its solutions.

Pulse Reader integrated with a radio module significantly simplifies the installation (no need for atex installation), advanced communications systems provide a coverage the most remote locations with minimal data transfer costs, and integration with Energy Management Systems brings additional savings.

Long-term savings

Lower reading costs

Simplicity

“Click-on” instalation

Control

Automated system monitoring

Integration with billing

Increased quality of service

For utilities

KONČAR AMI is useful for utility companies that want a more accurate reading and prvovremenu charge and should base for distributed generation and renewable sources.

For the end user

KONČAR AMI is also extremely useful for the end user who wants to cut costs, to prevent unnecessary losses and save.

Why choosing KONČAR AMI?

  • Minimum costs using long-range radio, existing GPRS or Ethernet networks
  • Interoperability – reading measuring equipment from different 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:

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.
The modular device that collects data from meters, the Registrar or a Repeater and transmits them to MARS. To read and transfer data you can choose between 8 communication modules:

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 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.

The 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.). 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 a RGT in IP68 enclosure is available.
Is an auxilary device used to amplify the wireless signal when the concentrator is outside the range of a RGT. 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
  • a lot less response time
  • a large number of devices per access point (> 10000)
  • no data transfer costs
  • guaranteed data security/li_item]
  • standardized ieee 802.15.4k solution
