For meters with impulses, such as the mechanical meters, it is enough to connect a cable with the TRMC. It will count the impulses received and can so recreate profiles of consumption or virtual index.
The TRMC also has a radio receiver Wireless M-Bus OMS which allows to receive the data of the radio's meters which are installed near the TRMC.
The TRMC, equipped with an extension card, can also read the correctors of gas Elster EK260, Itron Corus, Tritschler VC2.
The whole system works on battery and the TRMC was specifically designed for the applications of meters reading.
How does it work ?
The TRMC-19 is an autonomous datalogger, battery operated and able to store and to transmit indexes and profiles of load remotely via GSM/GPRS. These indexes and profiles result from external meters which are connected to the TRMC either by wire or by radio.
It is possible, thanks to an extension card, to read the values of correctors of gas (Elster EK260, Itron Corus, Tritschler VC2).
Generally, the TRMC transmits the measures with regular interval, in GPRS to a TDS server. The TDS software allows to store and to visualize the data through a Web page.
