Meter To Cash Process


We stand for comprehensive process knowledge around your smart meter roll-out. Based on our expertise in all areas from meters to communication to the system, our process consulting ensures an efficient roll-out and stable operation of your smart metering system. Building on our process know-how, we enable you to digitalise all roll-out processes and your meter-to-cash processes.

Roll-Out Smart Metering System

Specification

Together we create the realisation specification:

  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Project plan and milestones
  • Use cases and script
  • Definition of meter parameterisation
  • Definition of communication
  • Definition of interfaces
  • Definition of roll-out processes

Implementation

As part of the implementation of your smart metering system, we provide the project management:

Semax coordinates the meter, data concentrator and communication parameters with the customer. As a rule, an initial laboratory or field test takes place.

Semax implements the system, establishes the interfaces in the surrounding systems, adapts the system according to the customer’s wishes, tests the communication to the meters. Semax trains the customer on the meters, the communication and the system. As a rule, an initial field test of the device replacement process takes place.

The customer and Semax make the acceptance. The system goes into operation.

Change of equipment

Semax integrates the existing workforce management tool with the smart metering system or provides its own solution

Integration of existing meters

Semax adapts the drivers for existing industrial / commercial meters and household meters / smart meters. The meters are imported into the system.

As a rule, the transition to operational use takes place after a test phase.

Integration of segment meters (water, gas, heat)

Semax tests the connection of the segment meters (water, gas, heat) via Wireless M-Bus or Wired M-Bus. The meter parameterisation is defined and adapted accordingly. The intelligent metering system is adapted for the reading of the segment meters (water, gas, heat).

Integration of systems

Semax integrates existing peripheral systems such as ERP, MDM, EDM or ZFA with the smart metering system or implements its own solution.

Integration load control

Semax supports the replacement of ripple control and implements load control in the smart metering system.

Operation Smart Metering System

Update

Within the framework of a maintenance contract, we ensure an efficient and reliable system for our customers. To this end, we carry out the following activities on a regular basis:

  • System Update: Updating the system, the meter drivers and, if necessary, the interfaces.
  • System Health Check: Checking the system for power, stability and performance
  • System Back Up: Backup of the databases
  • Maintenance report and recommendation for action

Readout support

We support you with

  • Adjustments to the readout
  • Missing or faulty measurement data
  • Communication problems
    o G3-PLC
    o P2P

Device Change

Semax maintains the interface to the existing workforce management tool.

Integration of Existing Meters

Semax integrates industrial/commercial meters and household meters/smart meters from ZFA or other meters. The meters and/or data are imported into the system.

Integration of Segment Meters (Water, Gas, Heat)

Semax maintains the reading of the segment meters (water, gas, heat).

Integration of Systems

Semax integrates existing peripheral systems such as ERP, MDM, EDM or ZFA with the smart metering system or implements its own solution.

Integration Load Control

Semax updates the settings for load control in the intelligent metering system.

Service & Support

We provide service and support for all Semax or Ensor meters and the associated communication modules.

Hosting

On request, Semax operates the Amera system on our servers as Software as a Service.

Here we provide the server hardware, the operating system, the database licences, the system licences.

In addition, we maintain the operating system, the databases and the smart metering system as well as the interface to the surrounding systems.

Intelligent metering system

The Swiss company Semax, also based in Cham, was chosen as the system integrator.

Your name

Intelligent metering system

Your success story

PowerQuality for the Grid Processes

We stand for comprehensive data around your network level 7. Based on our expertise in the areas of metering and systems, we offer you unprecedented insight into your network at the most granular level..

Harmonics

Based on the Advanced Grid Analytics functionality of the Ensor Meters and our systems, we can monitor the harmonics up to the 25th harmonic.

You benefit from

  • Monitor compliance with EN50160
  • Find the troublemakers more easily and
  • Can act in a grid-serving manner.

More re. The Harmonics

Grid Analysis

The combination of intelligent measuring devices with the measuring system enables a more in-depth grid analysis (low-voltage load flow). A close-meshed early warning system can thus be established.

Statistics

Based on the PQ data, Semax develop recommendations for the positioning of measurement campaigns.

Integration Datas

Semax integrate Measuring Datas of PQ-Analysers and other sources.

Reporting

The data from the smart metering system can be used for internal or external reporting:

  • Frequency and duration of grid interruptions at level 7.
  • Voltage quality at level 7 (over/undervoltage)

Integration Systems

Semax establish interfaces to relevant peripheral systems.

Service & Support

We provide service and support for all meters of Semax or Ensor  and the associated communication modules.

Service

If requested Semax provide you with network monitoring as a service.
