The IZAR PLUS all-in-one solution from Diehl Metering is an innovative concept for automatic meter reading. The solution provider offers all-in-one systems, meter reading, software, support and services for energy utilities. IZAR PLUS ensures “100 % performance and efficiency” as part of this full-service concept.
The latest generation of IZAR radio technology from Diehl Metering is the heart of the IZAR PLUS all-in-one solution. In pilot projects in Denmark and Berlin, 100 % of the meters connected were read reliably over the radio-based system infrastructure – fully automatically and at any desired time.
Energy data on subscription
Another new feature of this solution is the role played by the solution provider, because Diehl Metering can now also take over responsibility for installation, maintenance, monitoring, operating support, energy data management and IT – if required. This complete package is intended to offer energy utilities a smooth – and economic – entry to Smart Metering. Energy utilities receive energy data transmitted and processed to their individual requirements – virtually on subscription, because IZAR PLUS also stands for a new financing principle. For a fixed charge per year, Diehl Metering keeps the infrastructure and software updated. The principle of “leasing instead of buying” gives energy utilities planning security and avoids the risk of unscheduled costs, for example if software is subsequently withdrawn from the market.
