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.

A company in the renewable energy industry needed to find an I/O device which can operate within the demanding requirements of renewable energy systems. Renewable photovoltaic systems are one of the most sustainable and reliable energy technologies available today, and today more and more countries are deploying solar farms to harness the power of the sun to generate a clean power with low CO2 emissions.As an expert in the design, development, installation, and maintenance of photovoltaic systems since 1998, the company provides a solar farm remote monitoring service via satellite communications. However, satellite bandwidth is very limited. Their ideal I/O device must be able to operate in a low-bandwidth environment and support scheduling functions for better light management. System Requirements- I/O device that can overcome low bandwidth limitations - Scheduling function support for lighting systems - SNMP protocol support for remote device monitoring and control

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
