S-FSK, PRIME, G3-PLC on a single platform for a future proof metering solution


During the last couple of years ADDAX smart metering solution has made a huge leap forward among its rivals by achieving an unprecedented system performance of more than 99% collection rate for 15 minutes interval data. The result confirmed by Energa Operator (one of the leading Electricity Distributor in Poland) in a project covering 109 000 meters turned the project into a success story with a stable 10% loss reduction after a 12 month period.

ADDAX smart metering technology previously based on S-FSK IEC 61334-5-1 and PRIME will now incorporate G3-PLC, as ADD became as part of G3-PLC Alliance recently.

A combination of these communication technologies has become possible due to Universal Hardware Platform (UHP) which lies in the bottom of ADDAX. The concept of UHP means that one and the same ADDAX meter can operate over multiple PLC technologies (G3-PLC, PRIME and S-FSK) without changes to its hardware part, where the switch between technologies can be done remotely in the field. Additionally the new ADDAX Meter is accompanied by two USB interfaces for a simultaneous HAN/WAN connectivity to assure even more benefits and possibilities than ever before!

On the European Utility Week ‘2014 event this solution will be featured the first time.

ADD GRUP invites everyone to visit its stand in Hall 1 (Stand no. 1.B40) where the experience that’s based on the recent success will be shared.
