“AKANKSHA technical collaboration with NMATRITCA, Russia introduced the state of the art AMI infrastructure, to support and control over the Commercial losses. A classic infrastructure and signature meter, using a unique, hybrid solution PLC+RF.
Akanksha is partnering with Matritca from Russia, to offer the complete range of “Signature” hybrid Smart Energy meters using PLC + RF and GSM as optional, to ensure data redundancy. Meters with Indoor / Outdoor version. Life of the meter is 20 years with 144000 MTBF data, fully complying to IS 16444
A hybrid is the result of combining several characteristics of different items to obtain one with the best properties.develop world-class high-tech solutions - also decided to combine the best modern technologies into one to get more opportunities and the best results. Company launched the product, a new line of equipment the “Advanced” with PLC + RF communication channels based on the “Hybrid” technology a combined G3-PLC power line communication solution with the possibility of alternative radio communication. A key feature of the technology is the ability of metering devices to adapt and choose individually a higher quality communication channel at the moment.
Strong shielding of the signal due to buildings or uneven terrain at the beginning of the line and local noise in one phase in the middle of the line lead to a lack of communication in the entire section, both separately for RF and separately for PLC. And the intelligent multi-channel system based on Hybrid technology (PLC+RF) continues to work reliably. Thus, the innovative combined solution works better than two independent data transmission channels.
Our solution improves data collection and makes it more reliable. If one of the interfaces fails for any reason, it will automatically switch to another interface.
Advantages of AIMS "Matrix" based on "Hybrid" technology
Increased reliability of data collection
100 % data redundancy
High noise immunity
Reduced costs for operation and maintenance of equipment
High data transfer rate
Network structure – based on Hybrid Channel
Each node supports the ability to establish a connection with other nodes via PLC or RF or PLC+RF
Communication between nodes is carried out automatically by finding the optimal route on the principle of "from node to node" (hop-by-hop mechanism)
Communication channel is selected automatically while building the network topology and dynamically adjusted depending on the network status (availability of the neighbour nodes)
The communication channel between the meter and the remote display (CIU) or other network device is determined by the type of modem used in these devices
