SMART ENERGY METER
A smart city is equipped with smart grids which facilitate the collection and transferring of electricity related data. Power is automatically re-distributes according to the usage of each region, thereby removing any imbalance in the electricity distribution. A major step in achieving such smart cities lies in the implementation of smart meters which keep a track of electricity usage which aids energy conservation.
Today’s electro-mechanical control systems will be replaced by digital control with new electronic devices providing the controls and likely performing many of the high-speed switching functions. An integrated system that utilizes communications will enable the electric system to communicate directly with end-use devices, and would automatically optimize system operation.
A smart meter is an all in one meter in which we can measure various parameters for all kinds of industries. It is a concept of measuring physical parameters along with electrical parameters through IoT based Smart Energy Meter for industrial automation. MultiFunction Plug & Play Smart Energy Meter measures electrical quantities (of industrial machines and electric utilities) along with physical quantities like Speed, Temperature, Humidity, Vibration, Pressure, Oil Float level, Fire detection etc., that are pivotal to industrial machine monitoring. It will act as a plug and play device, in which the industry specific sensors are plugged into the specifically assigned pin of the MCU. The sensors fitted to the device are industry specific. It feeds machine-specific machine monitoring analytics data along with electric data to the web.
