Taipei, Taiwan, 2015/01/12 - Particularly in the residential market, in the implementation of smart metering infrastructure, energy providers will face two major challenges which are increasingly accurate and cost-effective energy metering measurement solutions.
With the growing consumption of energy worldwide, particularly in the residential market, in the implementation of smart metering infrastructure, energy providers will face two major challenges which are increasingly accurate and cost-effective energy metering measurement solutions. As the data passes through many smart metering systems and control centers, million and million customer data records a day have to be handled, processed and protected from misuse. Therefore embedded control and integrated connectivity has become a top choice for smart metering in the future.
The well-known global company has more than 32 years' experience in the metering industry seeking a particular smart metering solution to implement on a large scale in Thailand, and to benefit both the energy suppliers and the customers, there are many advantages associated with smart metering, the most important of which is automated remote meter reading and constantly-updated consumption statistics that facilitate more efficient energy consumption. Thus it is essential to commence a highly reliable performance system, low power consumption, and Embedded-ready programming to increase the accuracy of energy measurement, easy maintenance, and efficient operation.
Korenix (korenix.com | korenixembedded.com) assumed overall responsibility for the successful delivery of the smart metering project. Its embedded Compact 2 LAN & 2 Serial Linux Computer JetBox3300-w has chosen to collect all the information from on-site smart metering devices and home energy system, Korenix JetBox3300-w enables the data collection reliably through its 2 Serial ports from on-site smart metering devices, and then to deliver data through the Ethernet ports to the control center of residential smart building. With the dual Ethernet, dual USB and dual serial ports, the JetBox3300 provides more flexible connection configurations.
Built-in Linux is embedded in JetBox3300-w which facilitates operational management and system maintenance to provide highly reliable performance and to increase the accuracy of energy measurement in a large and complex system.
Embedded Compact 2 LAN & 2 Serial Linux Computer JetBox3300-w is chosen, because:
• 2 RS232/422/485 and 8DI & 8DO for device and signal control (easing the connecting with on-site meters);
• Atmel ARM Processor with low power consumption for reliable performance;
• Embedded Linux ready for easy maintenance;
• Linux SDK for quick time-to-market;
• 2 LAN ports for Daisy-Chain Controller;
• 2 USB for data storage;
• One microSD card slot for customized configurations;
• Fan-less, ruggedized industrial design for anti-vibration/shock and -40~80oC wide operating temperature.
