There is a high degree of transparency at gas transfer stations; the flow of the energy carrier is precisely recorded there. However, it is not only the precise quantity measurement that is important, but also the correct temporal assignment of the measured values and the reliable transmission of the data. Honeywell offers utilities, municipal utilities and gas network operators the enCore ZM1 Elster state volume corrector for this purpose – a future-proof solution that allows wireless data retrieval using MC Technologies’ mobile routers.
The enCore ZM1 corrector is an industrial process computer that can process the input signals of various types of gas meters. It is primarily used for the (official) measurement of consumption data, the archiving of measured values and meter readings, and operational monitoring and control tasks.
To ensure that the collected data is reliably evaluated, the corrector has an integrated digital interface for gas measuring instruments. The relevant information reaches the receiver wirelessly via cellular routers from MC Technologies. The router is connected to the enCoreZM1 via a TCP/IP interface. Meanwhile, our 4G LTE routers are being used; previously, the state volume switchers were combined with our 3G UMTS routers.
