Our experience of communal heating has shown that reading energy meter’s remotely is the most straightforward and efficient way of gathering accurate readings. The main benefit of this technology is that it eliminates the requirement for time-consuming and costly visits to each unit or dwelling, while at the same time ensuring the most up to date information is captured every time.
Our standard BUS solution provides the ability to read meters remotely either via a GSM modem, telephone communication system or broadband.
Each meter is wired to an BUS data cabling system and data from the meters is fed to a master unit which collates the meter information and sends the data to a remote monitoring office. The remote monitoring can be provided by Evinox Energy or the clients own administration centre
The BUS solution provides heat energy consumptions, as well as flow and return temperatures to and from the home, from the communal heating central plant room installation and the actual flow rate of the communal heating water into the apartment. These temperature and flow readings provide an overview of how the system is operating and are useful for an engineer to see if the system is balanced correctly and can identify areas of poor flow or an individual meter problem without the need to visit the site. This can also identify opportunities for energy reduction in the system.
