Brea, CA, United States, 2015/05/18 - Moxa, a leading provider of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) solutions, is pleased to unveil Industrial IoT (Internet of Things) AMI solutions for smart grids - Moxa.com.
Moxa’s industrial IoT AMI solutions provide high voltage and low voltage, transparent and non-transparent, AMI applications with a wide range of cellular gateways, data concentrator units, and head-end server products with two-way communications for measurement, analysis, and optimization of energy usage, right down to the level of individual consumer devices.
Industrial IoT Enables Smarter Meters
“The smart grid operates in a manner similar to how an accountant manages a financial institution. You first count the money (that’s the meter), and then manage your finances (that’s the substation),” according to Ryan C.W. Teng, Moxa AMI project manager,“and the most important aspect of an efficient smart electricity grid is Peak Load Management.” Peak Load Management refers to maintaining precise control of load management devices to offer superior demand response. Facilities that use distributed energy storage technologies to store clean, renewable energy created onsite can pump excess power back into the electric grid during off-peak periods.
OpenADR Demand Response for Peak Load Management
Precise control over load management devices makes it possible to offer superior demand response programs. Demand Response (DR) programs help utilities maintain grid reliability and enable customers to realize significant value. With OpenADR Alliance, which provides a standardized design to automate and simplify DR, utilities can meet growing energy demands in a cost-effective way, and help customers maintain control over their future energy usage. Moxa’s AMI products feature OpenADR Demand Response for peak load management.
