Communication Equipment

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.

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.


Data concentrators are designed on the basis of Universal Hardware Platform supporting OFDM based technologies: PRIME 1.3.6, PRIME 1.4, G3-PLC with frequency ranges CENELEC and FCC. Switch between technologies is done through firmware change locally or remotely. 

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.
