Smart Metering – Nero Electronics — automatics for home and busines

Smart Metering

Integrated system development: from meters to receiving data in an application

Comprehensive solution

Implementing remote data transmission becomes much easier when all system elements are produced and supplied by the same manufacturer, providing communication technology that suits your needs. ​

With Nero you can deploy a comprehensive solution for automation of all resources data at once: electricity, water, heat and gas. The system will be adapted to the specifics of the facility, and full support in the design, implementation and testing of the system will be provided. ​

Automated systems for smart electricity metering are​ often based on PLC technologies, e.g. G3-PLC. They enable data transmission without additional wiring when powerlines have no drawbacks in design or implementation that may impede data transmission. ​

For cases with imperfect powerline architecture NERO offers a hybrid system with combination of PLC and radio communication that allows meters to choose an optimal transmission path depending on the load in each channel and to guarantee collection of all readings.​

The second solution offered is to use a completely wireless LPWAN UNB technology for electricity meters. It has become possible thanks to a unique Smart Meter Protocol developed by NERO, that is both: functional enough for all electricity parameters and perfectly light weight to suit LPWAN requirements.​

Manual meter readings are inevitably replaced by cost-effective intellectual automatic remote technologies.​

For that purpose, NERO has developed a very compact and precise smart residential gas meter with a unique patented ultrasonic technology and popular embedded communication protocols. It enables integration of the meter in partners’ existing systems.​

At the same time NERO offers a complete and easily expandable system that includes smart meters, concentrators and a convenient platform for data processing and visualization together with technical assistance in launch of the system that make digitalization easy and affordable.

Electric communication is often overloaded in house or on air. In this case the number of electric and radio interferences changes over time. The integration Radio and PLC technologies of Nero Electronics into a single system allows the meters to choose the optimal transmission path and to guarantee 100% collection of readings.​

To process and visualize meter data, one can use software by NERO or any other platform: the meters can be easily integrated with different systems.​

If you use traditional meters, the readings may be read and submitted incorrectly. The electricity metering system excludes human factor, and, as a consequence, risk of entering incorrect data into the system. Risks of users’ stealing, fraud are minimized: you won’t be able to interfere in the meter work with a magnet or to remove the body frame.

But it isn’t very easy to organize an operating electricity metering system with complete 100% reading of data: there may be some problems with provision of stable radio or PLC-signal in restrained urban development or using power lines of Soviet times. Having faced the problem of incomplete data bank, the system will be furnished with retransmission units. It results in significant cost estimation increase at the cost of the equipment and installation. Another problem is in transmission systems with the use of a separate communication cable – if it is damaged, the whole blocks fall out of metering. It is not very easy to find the damaged area. So, for availability of smart metering system not only perfect quality of the devices is significant, but also use of the most perfect data transfer technologies. 

The Nero Electronics staff, including developers and engineers, has allowed establishing and using the most technological solutions of wireless communications for electricity metering systems, for reliable system performance with the same competitive price:

· Radio protocol with the algorithm of recovering coding, which allows covering large territories with minimum signal.

· Patented PLC-technology, which has better trafficability on low-quality power lines.

· Combined solution, Radio+PLC, in which the metering devices automatically chose the transfer channel – radio communication or PLC – on their own, depending on the situation at a particular time.

Nero Electronics produces devices for wireless smart electricity, water, heat and gas metering, as well as base stations and data acquisition and transmission devices. All that allows establishing an integrated metering system of all resources or any specific resource, for example intelligent system of heat metering. Also, it allows choosing equipment for solution of any problem, for example, developing an electricity metering system for a gardening noncommercial association.
