Universal Meter Data Collection Equipment Set UFT01
In apartment buildings, it is always necessary to collect information from numerous electricity and water meters, often also from heat and gas meters. Meter manufacturers and data interfaces may be different, but all data should nevertheless be available in a joint automated system. The meter information collection solution presented in this document is universal, supporting all common meters using wire and radio connections, simultaneously being adaptable to different number of meters of all types.
The four most common ways of transmitting data are:
The Uniflex Systems data acquisition solution is universal, supporting all of the above-mentioned methods of communication simultaneously.
The possible number of meters in the minimum set depends on the protocol supported by the meters:
The number of all of the meters in the system (above) can be increased by adding respective expansion or line adapter modules.
The controller of the equipment set can be equipped with one of two software versions – a basic solution and an improved version. The basic solution does not require an Internet connection, but its capabilities are accordingly limited. The basic solution can be upgraded to the advanced version for an additional fee.
In the basic solution, one can read the current data from the meters and download the monthly reports from the controller using a web browser. In addition, the current data is always available in JSON format. The latest data sent by every meter is also available in XML format.
In the advanced solution, it is possible to send an automatic monthly report both in text and CSV format to a specified email address. Furthermore, it is possible to link the solution to a local or cloud-based building automation or monitoring system.
