Wireless Automated Meter Reading for Power Distribution Networks
MOXA
In the Americas and Europe, electric power is provided by a number of private power plants distributed over wide areas. Optimizing distribution and transmission to meet market demand is always a challenge, particularly since power suppliers need to monitor data usage and combine the data for power generation, distribution, and transmission. Deploying long range wireless automated meter reading will allow power suppliers to better gauge and respond to market demand and optimally allocate energy distribution to control rising energy costs and service interruptions. The customer in this application is a cooperatively owned power services company with over $816 million in assets and nearly 4.3 million MWh in energy sales as of 2007. It supplies power and provides other management services in the western US. The company provides leadership and management of power supply options and continues to implement increasingly sophisticated power management techniques and innovative technologies, giving utilities in the region the ability to offer low-cost power options at stable prices. System Requirements • Long range wireless transmission (satellite, GPRS, WCDMA, microwave, etc.) over wide territories. • Need to transmit data in a low bandwidth network environment. • Self-monitor connection status, when the connection fails, system reboots to restore communication.

One of Singapore's leading engineering and system integration providers needed exactly the right solution for a challenging gas pipeline application. With experience in assembling systems for many different vertical markets such as oil and gas networks, factory automation, and building automation, this system integrator realized that monitoring the temperature of a gas pipeline tunnel is crucial for safe operations. In the confined space of a tunnel, temperature rises easily, and the overheating could cause pipeline fractures that could lead to gas leaks or even explosions. Meanwhile, the long and narrow dimensions inherent to a tunnel meant that more home run cables must be installed to link all the temperature gauge data acquisition I/O devices back to the pipeline's SCADA system, increasing cabling costs. With these stakes and in these conditions, the simple act of regularly taking the temperature transforms into a formidable yet absolutely necessary requirement. System Requirements• Real-time tunnel temperature monitoring to provide early excessive heat warnings• Data acquisition and system management with SCADA system• Ethernet data acquisition system, but with efficient, cost-effective wiring

A startup company was developing a product which provides service partners with an integrated e-services platform that allows customers to remotely monitor and control devices in their home or business. In order to complete their project, the startup needed a control system that could monitor and control the many different devices used by their potential customers, preferably with an open protocol for greater flexibility. SNMP was their first choice, as it is commonly used and well understood in the IT field. The next step was to choose an I/O server to connect to the sensors in a home automation system.System Requirements- Open Ethernet-based procotol - SNMP protocol for I/O control - Compact size to save space - Long-term support and services

Incorporating video surveillance with SCADA/HMI systems is now a trend for automation applications. In general, the ActiveX Control component is required to embed video images in SCADA/HMI systems. In addition to installing the ActiveX Control components, programming is also required to properly facilitate video displays and control functions. Unfortunately, the kind of programming required can pose problems for automation system integrators because they are not familiar with video technology. Moxa is working with Siemens Taiwan Building Technologies (BT) Department to develop a userfriendly tool with graphical interface for Siemens DESIGO™ system, an up-to-date BA solution of freely programmable management and automation stations for the full spectrum of building services applications, to save time and effort with programming video related functions.System Requirements• Activate live video displays when an alarm is triggered at a remote site.• Remote PTZ camera control is required, including direction control and presets control.• Audio on/off functions

As concerns over global warming continue to grow, green technologies are becoming increasingly popular. Wind turbine companies provide an excellent alternative to burning fossil fuels by harnessing kinetic energy from the wind and converting it into electricity. A typical wind farm may include over 80 wind turbines so efficient and reliable networks to manage and control these installations are imperative.Each wind turbine includes a generator and a variety of serial components such as a water cooler, high voltage transformer, ultrasonic wind sensors, yaw gear, blade bearing, pitch cylinder, and hub controller. All of these components are controlled by a PLC and communicate with the ground host. Due to the total integration of these devices into an Ethernet network, one of our customers in the wind turbine industry needed a serial-to-Ethernet solution that can operate reliably for years without interruption.

Each wellhead was equipped with various sensors and meters that needed to be monitored and controlled from a central HMI, often miles away from the assets in the field. Redundant solar and wind generators were installed at each wellhead to support the electrical needs of the pumpstations, temperature meters, cameras, and cellular modules. In addition to asset management and remote control capabilities, data logging for remote surveillance and alarm notifications was a key demand from the customer. Terra Ferma’s solution needed to be power efficient, reliable, and capable of supporting high-bandwidth data-feeds.They needed a multi-link cellular connection to a central server that sustained reliable and redundant monitoring and control of flow meters, temperature sensors, power supply, and event-logging; including video and image files. This open-standard network needed to interface with the existing SCADA and proprietary network management software.

Unmanned weather stations play an essential role in the effort to analyze and predict the world's ever-changing weather patterns. The unmanned stations collect and store large amounts of weather data and then download the data at regular intervals to a back-end host for analysis and long-term storage. The computing device housed in the weather station must be robust enough to work continuously for long periods of time while exposed to a wide range of temperatures. It should also be able to collect readings from various sensors that use different data transmission protocols, and have the capability to store large amounts of data.
