The meter reading of LoRa Energy Meter is actually a small wireless meter reading program, which is similiar to using WIFI for the meter. The LoRa Meter Reading module generates a signal and uploads the data on the meter to the concentrator. Let’s take a look at the principles of LoRa Electric Meter reading program in detail. LoRaWAN meter’s metering system is suitable for industrial areas such as mines, where the electricity meters are scattered but the mobile signal is not good.
The Lora wireless remote transmission terminal is the basis of measurement. It communicates with the collector concentrator through the micro-power frequency band, and the data is uploaded to the LoRa concentrator. The LoRa concentrator will communicate with the master station through the GPRS module to upload the data to master station. The meter realize automatic remote meter reading of terminal metering, support two-way communication, real-time switch valve, real-time point reading, the meter terminal is normally in low power consumption mode, when the concentrator sends a meter reading command, the terminal at the specified address wakes up , Perform meter reading, and continue to enter low power consumption after completion, effectively reducing the power consumption of the meter.
Application of LoRa Kwh Meter
Traditional public utility operations are labor intensive, and subjective measurements are usually carried out by on-site personnel. In addition, meters are usually located in densely-built urban environments, indoors, and even underground environments. Many wireless technologies are difficult or impossible to use in such environments. By implementing smart utility infrastructure (such as energy meter) built with LoRa devices and LoRaWAN protocol-based sensors and gateways, utilities and metering companies can collect data remotely and deploy personnel more efficiently, thereby simplifying operating procedures.
2.IOT Smart City
With the long-distance, low-power, secure, and GPS-free geographic positioning functions realized by LoRa technology, daily administrative operations on electricity become more efficient. By connecting various city services, such as lighting, transportation and sightseeing etc., cities can further optimize the use of public utilities and personnel, thereby saving time and money.
3.IOT Smart Home
LoRa technology has the advantages of low power consumption and can penetrate dense building materials. It is an ideal platform for connecting smart homes and construction equipment of the Internet of Things. In addition, with its long-distance performance characteristics, the use of LoRa energy meter and the LoRaWAN protocol can track consumpotion data and promote the habit of saving electricity, providing a greener environmental for our future generations.
Deploying electricity meters connected to the Internet of Things and using always-on monitoring functions can bring many advantages to industrial operations. Since LoRa-based devices have the features of long distance, low power consumption, and long battery life, watt meters used in manufacturing plants or the mobile industry can transmit important data to the LoRaWAN network for analysis, thereby optimizing business operations.
