Title
(EN) DATA COLLECTOR FOR AN AUTOMATED METER READING SYSTEM
(FR) COLLECTEUR DE DONNEES POUR SYSTEME DE LECTURE DE COMPTEUR INFORMATISE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention includes an electronic utility meter, a data collector/meter and a method for communicating data in an automated meter reading system. The inventive method includes communicating data with a network and a first electronic utility meter, and communicating the data with the first electronic utility meter and one or more other meters.
(FR)
Cette invention a trait à un compteur électronique à usage général, à un collecteur de données /compteur ainsi qu'à une méthode permettant de communiquer des données dans un système informatisé de lecture de compteur. La méthode consiste à communiquer des données au moyen d'un réseau électronique et d'un premier compteur électronique à usage général et à communiquer ces données au moyen de ce premier compteur et d'un ou de plusieurs autres compteurs.
