Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR PROVIDING REMOTE MONITORING OF ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION FOR AN ELECTRIC METER
(FR) SYSTEMES ET PROCEDES POUR SURVEILLER A DISTANCE UNE CONSOMMATION D'ELECTRICITE D'UN COMPTEUR ELECTRIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A system (100) for providing remote monitoring of electricity consumption is provided. Briefly described, in one embodiment the system may comprise a plurality of electric meters (140), a plurality of communication devices having a unique address and defining a wireless communication network, and a site controller (150). Each of the plurality of electric meters (140) may be configured to measure the electricity consumption of a load attached to the electric meter (140). Each of the plurality of communication devices may be associated with one of the plurality of electric meter data and generate a transmit message using a predefined communication protocol being implemented by the wireless communication network. The transmit message may comprise the unique identifier and the data related to the electricity consumption of the electric meter (140). The site controller (150) may be configured for communication with the wireless communication network and configured to receive the transmit message from one of the plurality of communication devices, identify the electric meter (140) associated with the transmit message, and provide information related to the transmit message to a wide area network (120) for delivery to a host computer (110).
(FR) L'invention concerne un système (100) permettant de surveiller à distance une consommation d'électricité. En un mot, dans un mode de réalisation, le système peut comprendre une pluralité de compteurs électriques (140), une pluralité de dispositifs de communication présentant une adresse unique et définissant un réseau de communication sans fil, et un dispositif de commande de site (150). Chacun de ces compteurs électriques (140) peut être configuré pour mesurer la consommation d'électricité d'une charge fixée au compteur électrique (140). Chacun de ces dispositifs de communication peut être associé à l'une des données de ces compteurs électriques et peut générer un message de transmission faisant appel à un protocole de communication prédéfini mis en oeuvre par le réseau de communication sans fil. Le message de transmission peut comprendre l'identificateur unique et les données concernant la consommation d'électricité du compteur électrique (140). Le dispositif de commande de site (150) peut être configuré pour communiquer avec le réseau de communication sans fil et pour recevoir le message de transmission d'un des dispositifs de communication, pour identifier le compteur électrique (140) associé au message de transmission et pour transmettre les informations concernant le message de transmission à un réseau étendu (120) en vue de leur transfert à un ordinateur hôte (110).
