STS SMART PREPAID METERING UNITS
STS PREPAYMENT SOLUTION The Standard Transfer Specification (STS) has become recognized as the only globally accepted open standard for prepayment systems, ensuring inter-operability between system components from different manufacturers of prepayment systems. The Kamstrup OMNIPOWER Single-phase or Three-phase STS meter is fitted with an STS certified prepayment engine to verify STS energy tokens, perform credit management and enable breaker control based on available credit. HIGH PRECISION SMART METER The core component for establishing an intelligent smart grid system is the smart meter. It does much more than measure energy consumption. It assures utilities the possibility of exploiting the full potential of the smart grid. OMNIPOWER is Kamstrup’s latest high precision smart meter offering long-term stability and reliability for all applications. CUSTOMER INTERFACE UNIT The customer interface is paired with the meter STS number via a secure RF network.
