    Meters will have ARM capability

    It would make sense for a power meter company to
    offer AMR capability. Especially with all the new means
    of sending data other than captive networks that are
    so expensive to build and maintain.

    This is
    not at the end-user level, but it's just a matter of
    time.


    Siemens Power Transmission & Distribution has introduced
    the QUAD4 MAXsys 2510, a direct-access, polyphase
    power meter that brings versatility and value to power
    generation, transmission and substation applications. The
    meter packages a billing meter, revenue meter, power
    quality analyzer, intelligent electronic device,
    mechanical loss compensator, transducer and small
    point-count remote terminal unit into a single device. The
    meter can serve as a measurement and billing device
    throughout the grid. It is equipped with logic control that
    enables utilities to change loss constants in the meter
    based on the number of lines in service. In addition,
    it gives end-users direct access to power quality
    and power usage data. Its power-quality monitoring
    capabilities include per-phase sag and swell recordings,
    phase-angle measurements and total harmonic distortion
    notations. The meter can interface with multiple SCADA
    protocols. Its multiple communication systems enable two or
    more user groups to receive meter information
    simultaneously. A flexible power supply, available in two
    versions makes multiple installation configurations
    possible. Communication is based on table-driven protocol
    for increased accuracy and is supported by data
    collection systems.
