Title (EN) METER READING DEVICE AND SYSTEM
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET SYSTÈME DE LECTURE DE COMPTEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A remote unit includes an electronics assembly, a housing, and a fastening member. The electronics assembly includes a communications module and an image sensor, having a lens with a field of view, that captures images of a display of a meter. The housing includes a cover coupled to a base member. The base member couples to the meter and includes an aperture. The electronics assembly is retained between the base member and the cover, such that the lens aligns with the aperture. The fastening member receives a portion of the housing in a hollow section. A mechanism of the fastening member attaches to a portion of the meter, maintaining the display in the field of view. The communications module transmits image data, derived from the captured images, to a hub unit. The hub unit processes the image data, and forwards information extracted from the image data to a remote server.
(FR) Unité distante comprenant un ensemble électronique, un boîtier et un élément de fixation. L'ensemble électronique comprend un module de communication et un capteur d'image, pourvu d'une lentille avec un champ de vision, qui capture des images d'un affichage d'un compteur. Le boîtier comprend un couvercle couplé à un élément de base. L'élément de base se couple au compteur et comprend une ouverture. L'ensemble électronique est maintenu entre l'élément de base et le couvercle, de telle sorte que la lentille s'aligne avec l'ouverture. L'élément de fixation reçoit une partie du boîtier dans une section creuse. Un mécanisme de l'élément de fixation se fixe à une partie du compteur, maintenant l'affichage dans le champ de vision. Le module de communication transmet des données d'image, dérivées des images capturées, à une unité de concentrateur. L'unité de concentrateur traite les données d'image, et transmet des informations extraites des données d'image à un serveur distant.
