IoT application with remote optical readings of power meters

  • Regular remote power consumption readings (15min-24h intervals)
  • Analysis of energy consumption savings, dynamic advance invoicing, dynamic hourly tarrifications
  • Monitoring the utilization of machines and equipment
  • Transfer of other parameters from power meters
  • Applicable in SIGFOX or NB-IoT networks

SENSECOM-OMD

Key features

  • Remote power meters reading (electricity meter OBIS registers) using the IEC62056-21 optical head
  • Absolutely easy installation (magnetic attachement)
  • More than 10 years without battery replacement with one reading per day
  • Version with 3 types of antenna terminals (center, left or right)
  • Possible connection to the SENSECOM-WSH repeater in SIGFOX for approx. 20 m for hard-to-reach places
  • Broadcasting to the SIGFOX nationwide network

Models

  • OMD
    • universal mode with the possibility of setting up to 13 read registers
    • reading interval 24h, minimum 15min for 1 register or 10min * number of registers (10min message intervals)
  • OMD – E
    • energy mode with fixed 4 registers (consumption in two tariffs, supply, electricity meter number)
    • reading interval 24h, minimum 1h
  • antenna conector orientation:
    • OMD-(E)C…Central
    • OMD-(E)L…Left
    • OMD-(E)R…Right

Note: This is not a pulse reading of the flashing metrology LED. The IEC62056-21 optical head reads data over the optical serial link directly from the meter registers. Most billing power meters are equipped with this interface (typically in the form of a target with a round aperture or a round dent with a pair of small apertures, usually below or next to the display).

Installation guide

New SIGFOX models for continuous consumption reading

OMD-(E)P

  • Continuous energy consumption measurement data (hourly intervals)
  • Extended with the possibility of power supply via USB-C connector from a DIN power supply in the cabinet or from a USB adapter from a power socket or from a power bank 
  • Possible supplementing the device with backup batteries 
  • Communication over the entire IoT network:
    • SIGFOX (planned availability 5/2022)

OMD-(E)D

  • Continuous energy consumption measurement data (hourly or quarter-hourly intervals)
  • Built-in rechargeable lithium battery with USB-C connector – expected lifetime per charge for hourly readings with hourly messaging in SIGFOX 1 year, or for 15 min. readings with daily messaging in NB-IoT 5 years
  • Communication over the entire IoT network:
    • SIGFOX (planned availability 6/2022)

 

SENSECOM-OMN

Key features

  • Remote power meters data reading using the IEC62056-21 optical head interface
  • Absolutely easy installation (magnetic attachement)
  • More than 6 months on single charge via USB-C for hourly readings
  • Communication in NB-IoT nationwide network, built-in antenna
  • planned availability 6/2022
