The PRIME telemanagement system uses the low-voltage electrical grid to communicate with each meter, centralising the information in a single element, the data concentrator located in the transformer substation. This PLC concentrator becomes the manager of the entire low-voltage distribution network, receiving readings automatically from each meter, as well as providing control over any aspect of its configuration, whether to process a change in tariff, remotely adjust the contracted power, or manage a service disconnection or restoration by triggering the circuit breaker built into the meter itself.
The centralised management of all this information volume provides reliable data for doing energy balances, yielding an accurate picture of how the energy is consumed in a low-voltage distribution network, and for determining the level of losses in order to detect potential consumer fraud.
Interoperability with other manufacturers is an important aspect to consider. Circuit devices feature PRIME PLC technology, guaranteeing interoperability with multiple manufacturers and existing applications thanks to its open and public protocol.
