Wi-SUN, which stands for Wireless Smart Utility Network, is an open and scalable wireless communication protocol designed for smart grids and smart homes. The Wi-SUN energy meter is a power consumption measurement device that utilizes Wi-SUN communication for remote communication and complete functionality. It plays a crucial role within the smart grid system.
The features of the Wi-SUN energy meter are as follows:
1. Electric energy metering
2. Condition Monitoring
The Wi-SUN energy meter monitors the operating status and abnormalities of the circuit. It can monitor the load of the circuit, circuit breaker status, fault information, etc. in real time, and will immediately send out an alarm and upload fault information once an abnormal situation is found. This is very beneficial to ensure the normal operation and maintenance of the circuit.
3. Data transmission
Wi-SUN energy meters can wirelessly transmit energy data and condition monitoring data to a smart home or smart grid system. Users can access energy meter data through smart devices, computers, and other terminals. They can also set various electricity consumption strategies, such as time-of-use electricity prices and customized electricity consumption plans. This is of great significance for electricity management and energy conservation.
4. Security protection
The Wi-SUN energy meter has a comprehensive security protection mechanism that includes both physical and information security. In terms of physical security, it adopts a fully sealed metal shell design that is highly resistant to dust, water, and high temperatures. This ensures the normal operation of the equipment in harsh environments. In terms of information security, it supports a variety of encryption algorithms and communication protocols to ensure the security and integrity of data transmission.
The application scenarios of Wi-SUN energy meters are mainly concentrated in the fields of smart homes, smart grids, and smart cities, giving full play to the communication advantages of Wi-SUN and combining the basic functions of energy meters to realize intelligent functions such as remote meter reading, power monitoring, and power management.
