Real-time, remote meter reading - Satel SpainEnergy generation plants have to meet the specific requirements of regulatory authorities with respect to reporting real-time production data and receiving setpoint orders.

For the case of Spain, it is worth mentioning, for example, Royal Decree 1565 which applies to meters with IEC 870-5-102 protocol.

Satel Spain offers the following solutions in order to comply with these regulations:

Real-time remote reading

With the OWA31IETH datalogger the data from up to 16 meters can be sent in real time to a Delegated Office, which is in turn connected to the Network Operator.

The system is compatible with the following protocols:

  • IEC 870-5-102

Connection with the Delegated Office can be made through:

  • Modbus TCP
  • IEC 104

Whilst the datalogger communicates with the Delegated Office it also affords simultaneous connection with the plant SCADA system.

Reception of setpoints

The OWA31IETH datalogger can receive setpoint orders, for both the value of the power and the reason.

The plant’s production elements are operated through the generation of 4 – 20 mA signals which are proportional to the data received.
