Metrum Cellular®



With 4G LTE capacity and speed, Aclara’s Metrum Cellular LTE is an IP-enabled solution that leverages existing infrastructure investments. It offers utilities a private, high-speed and secure communications network while enabling them to do more on their networks. Metrum Cellular creates new efficiencies for Smart Grid applications such as AMI, outage management and restoration, Conservation Voltage Reduction (CVR), and Volt/Var Optimization (VVO).Standards-based technology – Metrum enables IP connectivity to every end-point device Standards-based technology IP connectivity to every endpoint device Supports full two-way communications with the end-point with near real-time latency Protocol and meter agnosticFlexible, easy deployment without installing extensive network infrastructure Easy-to-deploy Plug-and-play deployment (no field configuration) Over-the-air firmware upgrades for Metrum LTE modules and all connected devicesSecure – enables utilities to create flexible, secure private networksMultiple Electric Meter Options Commercial and Industrial Metering Solutions Allows utilities to reduce high energy costs and manage demand constraints Reduces overhead and improves reliability for private network on public infrastructure Delivers all meter data stored within meter Delivers Full load profile from the meter Delivers data in seconds Delivers data in time intervals as low as 5 seconds Allows for seamless integration with existing MV90 programDistribution Automation Solutions Leverages existing Smart Grid investments provides utilities a private, high-speed network built on public infrastructure. Make devices more effective with reliable and secure data transmissions to perform advanced applications that help monitor and control distribution networks. Metrum LTE modules plug into meters and devices out-of-the-box without any –additional configuration. Use your existing SCADA system to capture instantaneous voltage or voltage logs in corresponding metrology devices for Conservation Voltage Reduction (CVR). Detect outages and pinpoint problems faster to efficiently deploy maintenance teams. Pinpoint sources of theft and non-technical losses to prioritize areas of your network in need of optimizations and upgrade. Remotely monitor transformers in real-time to predict and plan maintenance.Solar Metering Solutions Roof-top solar installations can be easily monitored and provide time of use data from data from the Aclara I-210+c. Regional or neighborhood solar installation monitoring solutions.Flexible User Experience Aclara’s software platform offers utility operations and customer service representatives a customizable interface to access the information they need. The software reads meters and interfaces with smart-infrastructure devices that monitor and control utility distribution networks. Includes validation, estimation and editing capability.
