Communication equipment

The Router/Data concentrator unit is a network device which provides 2-way data transmission between end-point devices in electricity consumption network and the Center or another router/concentrator.

The Router/Data concentrator registers devices and forms routing tables which allows a proper data exchange within the network. Thereby, secured and robust delivery of address data is provided. These devices are used as main communication equipment of ADDAX metering system. The data concentrator supports both communication and application specific functions.

Coupling units provide connection of HF-communication equipment to overhead/underground cables power transmission lines with voltage up to 15 kV and frequency up to 60 Hz.

Coupling unit capacitative

  • Coupling unit is a mandatory “intermediary link” between router (meter) and MV line
  • Coupling unit connection is performed in the MV trunks commutations points, as a rule – at transformer substations
  • The device provides effective transmission of high frequency signals between the communication line (high frequency cable) and overhead/cable power transmission line

Coupling unit inductive

  • The inductive coupling unit provides the physical link between MV-modem and shielded power line.
  • It accepts low-voltage information signals of high-frequencies ranging from 40 to 400 kHz.
  • Due to magnetic coupling, the information signal is transmitted over shields of MV cables.
