iGW: Smart Meter Gateway

The Smart Meter­ing data col­lec­tion solu­tion

Product highlights

  • Avail­abil­ity of the most pop­u­lar meter­ing pro­to­cols: IEC60870‑5–102, Mod­bus and DLMS
  • Abil­ity to col­lect infor­ma­tion from the plant (up to 24 meters) through IEC60870‑5–102, DLMS or Mod­bus
  • Infor­ma­tion col­lected from the plant is processed by iGW, allow­ing any kind of user mathematical/logical oper­a­tion in order to cre­ate new data that will be sent to the con­trol cen­ter
  • Data is sent to Con­trol Cen­ter via any kind of com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­work avail­able in the plant (GPRS, VSAT, ana­log radio, Eth­er­net, ..) using stan­dard com­mu­ni­ca­tion pro­to­cols (IEC60870‑5–101/104, Mod­bus, DNP3.0)
  • iGrid T&D solu­tions have been tested with most of the lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers of smart meters (Landis&Gyr, Itron and Cir­cu­tor).

Technical features

iGW Series pro­vides a Smart Meter­ing data col­lec­tion solu­tion that allows util­i­ties to accu­rately col­lect meter­ing data from sub­sta­tion and gen­er­a­tion plants, such as:

  • Tam­per­ing detec­tion
  • Billing data
  • Gen­er­a­tion reg­u­la­tion
  • Con­sump­tion and gen­er­a­tion trends
  • Loss cal­cu­la­tion
  • Power qual­ity: total har­monic dis­tor­tion (THD) and power fac­tor (PF)

 

iGW Smart Meter­ing series uses the most pop­u­lar meter­ing pro­to­cols: IEC60870‑5–102, DLMS and Mod­bus. iGW devices col­lect real-time infor­ma­tion from all the meters in the facil­ity, with reads taken at really short inter­vals (every 2–4 sec­onds). Meter­ing data can then be trans­ferred to con­trol center/s via any kind of com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­work avail­able in the plant (GPRS, VSAT, ana­log radio, Eth­er­net, etc.) using stan­dard com­mu­ni­ca­tion pro­to­cols (IEC60870‑5–101/104, Mod­bus, DNP3.0).

iGW series prod­ucts have been tested with most of the lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers of smart meters (Landis&Gyr, Itron and Cir­cu­tor).

Applications and Maintenance

 


iRTU & iGW units allow main­te­nance and con­fig­u­ra­tion tasks to be per­formed, both locally and remotely over the IP net­work. Per­for­mance of main­te­nance tasks may be accom­plished by using stan­dard soft­ware tools, e.g.:

  • Com­mu­ni­ca­tion trace dis­play: Tel­net man­ager (Hyper­T­er­mi­nal or sim­i­lar)
  • Data upload­ing or down­load­ing: FTP man­ager (Win­dows File Explorer or sim­i­lar)
  • iConf tool for con­fig­u­ra­tion and man­age­ment of iRTU/iGW units
