The pole mounted meter from ADD GRUP has been certified according to the MID, following a major redesign to bring it into compatibility with EU requirements.
Pole mounted metering is proving effective in tackling electricity theft. In Russia, for example, pole mounted metering has reduced the losses from 50-60% to the manageable 6-7% in the regions where it has been deployed. More than 250,000 pole mounted meters have been installed in Russian Federation since 2004, particularly in the high-loss areas.
ADD GRUP’s MID certified pole mounted meter has a universal communication platform, which supports FSK, is S-FSK compliant with DLMS/COSEM, OFDM PRIME technologies, and enables remote firmware upgrade. The meter also has an additional PLC FSK-132 interface for communication with the consumer interface unit, and supports STS prepayment.
The MID certified pole mounted meter is also available for the Asian and African markets.
ADD GRUP will be showcasing the solution at booth #1.C19 at European Utility Week 2013 in Amsterdam.
