The new communication module enables GSM and UMTS communications between the E350 meter and the customer central system. E35C 2G/3G module has been designed to combine the cellular P2P E350 and E450 meter platforms and to strengthen Landis+Gyr’s offering by focusing on E350 as a single cellular P2P platform in the future. The first phase of the product launch involved development of the functionality set to cover key use cases for Landis+Gyr’s project with Elektrilevi, Estonia.
Landis+Gyr has launched a brand-new ripple control transmitter R800 that can be individually adapted to local conditions. The R800 supports all prevalent coupling technologies and can accommodate up to four couplings per transmitter. The R800 adds a number of useful functions to the scope of existing FQD and SFU-K transmitters, including voltage and current control settings, an integrated emergency controller , as well as table overviews and graphic representations of a wide range of operating values for state-of-the-art monitoring.
The solution features a smart meter communication gateway that complies fully with the stringent regulation imposed by German regulators.
Europe’s energy management system is on the cusp of a major transformation towards Smart Metering. And the fact that Germany, Europe’s largest economy, is finally picking up pace on the path to the smart world is an indication for the sincerity of that change.
The CU-P4x, which became available at the end of 2013, is the latest generation of Landis+Gyr’s series of modems. The communication device has been developed to significantly increase the reliability of data transfer in the GPRS mobile network, overcoming intermittency issues and coverage weaknesses.
Today, globally, street lights consume a significant amount of electric energy, with most programmed to switch on when it is getting dark and switch off as it gets bright in the morning. This practice has been noted as being a big waste of energy globally.
