ZFA/200-F - Our universal platform for automatic meter reading
The open, flexible system for all requirements of liberalized energy markets.
The world-wide liberalization of energy markets causes new tasks for reading and processing of energy data. With our automatic meter reading system ZFA/200-F, we offer you the best support to respond to all these new challenges.
The following fields are covered with ZFA/200-F:
Individual device drivers enable the communication with meters, measuring devices and recorders independently from manufacturers. With over 240 different device drivers all current meters, recorders and transmission devices are supported.
These device drivers support most protocols and data formats. Standardized interfaces are used for an import from external systems or from mobile meter reading.
After reading or import, measuring data is automatically saved in a database as raw data in form of standardized OBIS data. This enables a direct and similar data processing.
Measuring data is managed in standardized OBIS format and customer-, device- or metering point-oriented.
For this purpose different powerful databases (Oracle, MS-SQL-Server, Sybase) in stand-alone mode and in multi-user mode are used.
The user administration enables the limitation of functions and data ranges up to the multi-client capability. The extended user administration according to SOA criteria is supported.
Data security and revision security are achieved by special functions like meter data history.
The integrated redundant saving of measuring data (meter data / raw data / standardized data) guarantees a maximum data security.
Flexible evaluation modules are used for preparation and processing of measuring data for billing, energy data management, energy portfolio management etc.
Detailed statistics with automatic grouping of faulty devices simplify the monitoring of data communication and edit processes.
The processes data reading, plausibility check, data evaluation and data transmission are fully automatable and can be adjusted by the user. The user can set the processes individually.
