Landis+Gyr releases AIM 3.0, bringing a scalable multi-energy AMM solution to market
AIM 3.0 makes the utility processes of operating, monitoring and managing electricity, heat, gas and water more efficient as it integrates them into one, easy-to-use system. With AIM 3.0, Landis+Gyr provides a comprehensive, customisable system for covering the metering management needs of multi-utilities.
Power Quality Information in AIM 3.0 can be used to increase energy efficiency by optimising electricity network capacity. It also enables better awareness of network status by finding out where more voltage is needed and to identify at which metering points power outages and voltage changes have occurred. Together, these functionalities contribute toward the development of a smart grid.
Landis+Gyr also offers a wide range of services to assist utility customers to find the correct specifications for their solution needs, and designing a comprehensive solution according to these needs using proven technology. Once a system is defined we can reliably deploy a total solution, as well as running and servicing an entire AMM system over the solution’s life-cycle.
AIM 3.0 adds support to the following new Landis+Gyr and Landis+Gyr Enermet multi-energy devices:
- The E120LiME meter, the first residential smart meter with fully integrated multi-energy functionality
- The new ULTRAHEAT® UH50 ultrasonic heat meter, which can now be part of an AIM system via the E120LiME meter or with a separate ET50 terminal unit
- The ET50, a multifunctional terminal, which is used to connect electricity, heat, gas and water meters to an AIM system
AIM 3.0 has the following complimentary functions:
AIM Dashboard is a new, web-based software application, enabling a utility’s customer service personnel to gain an instant overview of consumers’ metering, device and other collected data, as well as to track power usage, and carry out versatile remote controlling functions. For example, debt management with disconnectors etc.
The ET10 is a data logger and control unit for Landis+Gyr ZCF100A meters and bridges two leading elements of an advanced metering solution. This combination works with AIM system via low voltage PLC communication and the EMPC100(i) concentrator.
Stefan Weber, Executive Vice President Landis+Gyr Europe, says, “By using one unified AMM solution such as AIM 3.0, utilities can make savings on everything from infrastructure and running costs to workload. Utility personnel now only need to use one system that manages everything. Changes and updates are easy to carry out when all parts of the system are compatible”.
