|Digital Energy Smart Metering ANSI Meters i210 Family|
GE’s most advanced residential electricity metering product line, the I-210+c, delivers Smart Grid capability for today and the future. Derived from our industry leading commercial and industrial product line, the kV2c, the I-210+c benefits from our advanced metrology capability and lessons learned from over 10 years of solid state metering design. All the way down to the advanced microprocessor, the I-210+c contains much of the advanced polyphase functionality that GE has been known for. We have also added capability that makes the I-210+c the referenced residential product line in the industry.
With multiple communication options the I-210+c provides greater choice, supporting the latest in AMI Networks and technologies. The I-210+c has been designed to accommodate RF Mesh, RF Point-to-Multipoint, PLC, and Ethernet communications.
With the addition of the fully rated 200 amp service switch, the meter is capable of pre-payment metering without all the historical cost associated with card readers or other legacy pre-payment technology. Load limiting and emergency conservation modes set this meter apart when working in conjunction with a demand response program. Having the capability to be remotely configured, as well as being firmware upgradeable, this product serves today’s needs, as well as tomorrow’s evolving requirements.
GE’s I-210+ meters have been designed to specifically accommodate Smart Grid communications technology, making communications interchangeable and interoperable. As factory integrated and tested communications modules embedded within the smart meter, the I-210 family supports multiple RF Mesh and PLC communication technologies.
All communications is extensively tested to ensure our meters perform flawlessly, even in the harshest of radio frequency (RF) environments.
GE’s innovative MeterMate™ software suite enables meter administrators to easily configure and manage GE meters. Each software component in the MeterMate suite is optimized to address the different aspects of a meter’s lifecycle. MeterMate program creation software enables the user to effortlessly configure the meter’s basic and advanced functionality, ranging from creating a simple demand program and setting up the meter display to configuring the meter’s I/O and alerts.
With MeterMate reading and programming software, a user can read, program and perform real-time instrumentation and power quality monitoring on a meter, via a variety of different communication methods such as local OPTOCOM, remote telephone, RS-232/485 and IP communications.
The suite also provides the MeterMate Batch Control, MeterMate Load Profile (MMLp) and MeterMate XTR utilities. MeterMate Batch Control enables the user to automate remote meter reading. MeterMate Load Profile (MMLp) provides analysis of load profile data and MeterMate XTR supports the export of meter data to the MV-90 HHF format.
