GSM/ GPRS based Solution
The GPRS based energy meters transmit the metering data over GPRS cloud using GSM cellular network. This metering data is received by MTI Smart Eye MDC at a central datacenter. The data is saved in a database for later retrieval and analysis using MTI Galaxy. MTI Galaxy provides a web enabled graphical user interface to the end users.
The users through a secure username and password can access the metering data using MTI Galaxy through internet preferably over VPN for different reporting options. Also, the data can be utilized for analysis purpose as per the user requirements. To ensure smooth operation of the system, MTI provides continues remote support. Moreover, through the remote support feature different patches and updates can also be applied to the system.
RF Enabled Solution with HHU
The meter readers are provided with Hand Held Units (HHUs) equipped with RF. The HHUs have a special meter reading software installed on them called Smart Eye Mobile, which enables the HHUs to communicate with the RF meters. The meter readers take the reading of meters through these Hand Held Units and bring back the HHUs to the Sub-Division office. Here, the HHUs are attached through USB cable to a desktop application namely Smart Eye Desk. The readings are downloaded using Smart Eye Desk and then transferred to the database at the datacenter.
RF Gateway Solution
The RF Gateway solution provides fully automatic meter reading without meter readers, Handhelds or expensive wiring. It allows to economically read large sub metering installations in high rises and congested locations. The RF Gateway collects meter readings using RF and then transmits those readings to the MDC over GPRS cloud using the cellular network.
