Network Gateways
With its long-range wireless communication capability, the PowerCom RF Repeater paves a smooth 2-way data path extending the signal range between the meter end-points and the Concentrator. The Repeaters have two RF channels – one for communicating to the Smart Meters, and other to communicate with the Concentrator. They operate according to a mesh network methodology.
The Concentrator is a Data Collection Concentrator (DCU) that is based on a standard PC with additional communications and built in redundancy. It is capable of supporting Multi-Utility metering end points (water, gas, heat, electricity) and interface with equipment from third party manufacturers. The unit is responsible for data acquisition, processing, storing, and recording data from the Meters/Repeaters.
