Integration & Developement
The smart metering equipment and particularly the meter has 4 main blocks: Communication interfaces, Protocol, Functional Application (Companion) and Metrology.
Andrea Informatique has invested a lot of eﬀort in innovation, research and development. Presently, Andrea proposes modules and libraries for the 4 blocks above to help meter providers to get low cost and eﬃcient equipment. Andrea Informatique can assist its customers to comply with the market requirements and to be in the market at the right time.
Communication interfaces: Andrea Informatique proposes low cost full soft solutions:
- THUNDER: G3-PLC (Cenelec A and FCC) Full soft solution
- CENTAUR: G3-PLC HYBRID Full soft solution
- HURRICANE: Wi-SUN Modem soft solution
- EAGLE: LoRaWAN Modem soft solution
- M-BUS: Wired and wireless. Soft solution
- EURIDIS: Soft solution
- We provide the hardware reference design with the library.
- Integration of the 3GPP technologies: NBIoT, LTE, GPRS, TCP/IP
Protocol DLMS COSEM: ANDREA Informatique has implemented complete and reliable Toolkits that are DLMS COSEM development platforms to speed up the meter design and implementation. By providing the DLMS COSEM toolkits (Client and Server), we support our customers with this backbone in the design of the smart metering equipment.
Functional Application: Andrea Informatique knows the most important companions in Europe: LINKY (FR), SMETS2 (UK), T5 (SP), FNN (GR), etc and also IDIS, the international companion deﬁned and maintained by the IDIS Association. We have the right skills in assisting our customers in succeeding with this application. We have the IDIS library. The IDIS library can be adapted to any market requirement.
Metrology: Andrea Informatique has the libraries for single phase and polyphase meters in 2 variants: Mono-chip and dual-chip with clear separation of the legal and no-legal relevant parts. These libraries connect by a clear and comprehensive API to the application layer (IDIS).
Certiﬁcation: We support our customers in the certiﬁcation process: MID, DLMS, G3-PLC, IDIS, etc. If the customers trust us for the design and implementation of the equipment, we take the commitment to succeed in all the certiﬁcations as a part of our technical and commercial oﬀer.
