Skanderborg, Denmark — (METERING.COM) — December 8, 2011 – Two new features, an analysis logger with extended analyzing depth and integration of substation monitoring, have been added by Kamstrup to its EMS10 Meter Data Management system, along with the new release of the system.

Data from both Kamstrup’s smart meters and from the substation monitoring tool, UtiliKeeper, are now available within Kamstrup’s MDM system, providing a better quality of data and a higher information level from the grid.

“The new extensions of the EMS10 will raise the information level in the operating system facilitating operational decisions and automatic responses to event,” commented Smart Grid product manager at Kamstrup, Henrik Bæk Jørgensen. “The Analysis Logger and the UtiliKeeper are in each their way important building blocks in the smart grid.”

The EMS10 Analysis Logger was developed in order to handle new and future smart grid demands through deeper analyses of data provided by smart meters. The logger analyzes a customized profile of registers down to 5 minutes values, e.g. of detailed consumption data, voltage and current for each phase and pulse input. The much deeper analysis of actual metering points makes it possible to activate targeted trouble shooting.

UtiliKeeper provides real time monitoring of substations in a self-contained “all in one box” solution. UtiliKeeper collects data down to every millisecond from several points in network substations, providing a complete picture of events like partial discharge, short circuits, ground fault, humidity and even open doors. Using push technology, the UtiliKeeper transmits data to multiple recipients as events dictate.

The new version of Kamstrup’s EMS10 MDM system completely integrates the information coming from UtiliKeeper into the utility’s smart grid environment and makes it possible for network operators to access UtiliKeeper information in close to real time from the EMS10 user interface.
