Smart Meter Design
ANDREA Informatique has an excellent knowledge of the European market, and has implemented most of the companions (national speciﬁcations) in projects with meter providers (LINKY, DMSR, IDIS2, SMETS2, T5, FNN, etc).
We have entirely designed a single phase electric meter with our DLMS COSEM libraries and Centaur, we have created Pegasus. Pegasus is certiﬁed by the G3 PLC Alliance and by the DLMS UA. Here below the functional diagram of Pegasus.
The Smart Meter Design is the result of several years of research and productive exchange with meter providers, some of whom are now our partners. With them, we are joining eﬀorts to respond to the big challenge that represents the design of reliable and cost eﬃcient systems in the smart metering sector.
The Smart Meter Design is more than a ready-to-use design, it can be seen as a development kit that allows meter providers to test and compare diﬀerent microcontrollers of diﬀerent brands. Also, meter providers can test and compare diﬀerent communication techniques. Andrea can help them in this approach, advise them in the design of the target hardware, as well as implement the equipment and provide support for certiﬁcation.
We have in our catalogue some communication modules like NB IoT, LoRa, G3PLC (CenelecA and FCC), G3-PLC Hybrid among others like M-BUS wired and wireless, Euridis, Modbus, etc
Concerning the ﬁrmware, Andrea can help meter providers to get a reliable and cost eﬃcient implementation. Andrea has already implemented the most common Companions in Europe, for example Linky, Smets2, IDIS, DSMR and FNN and we are presently working in Meters&More.
ANDREA Informatique can design and manufacture any kind of electronic devices with performant communication interfaces. Indeed, we are able to create from scratch cost eﬃcient devices.
We have the skills and modules to do it in the best conditions for our customers. For the hardware production, we have a partnership with a trustable company to manufacture the equipment. They have a production site with a high capacity they can manufacture thousands of units per month.
DLMS COSEM Tools & Services are a complete package of products and support to improve the reliability and to reduce project development time, and in consequence, to reduce the costs of your Smart Metering Projects.
