MTR Smart Grid Products - Overview & Various Deployment Options

MTR is set to emerge as the Smart Grid solutions forerunner with its range of specialized applications. The company is forging its key market position with the development of highly innovative two-way radio enabled remote terminal units that deliver, ease of-use, client end-point management, seamless base station gateway integration, scalability and full control capabilities.

Remote Terminal Unit [RTU] - Stand Alone

Universal Smart Grid two-way RF unit, delivering robust and secure "Last-Mile" communication. Monitor, command & control in software from a remotely located utility control center:

  • Applications cover Water, Gas, Electric & control grids enabling the overlay of existing infrastructure with state-of-the-art smart grid data communications technology

  • The RTU telemetering assembly can be connected to any AMR capable meter or sensor [That delivers a pulse signal].

RTU Install Options

Single RTU servicing a single water meter end point.

Robust and durable solution typically offering 20 year battery life

Single RTU servicing a single gas meter end point.

Robust and durable solution typically offering 20 year battery life

Single RTU servicing 1, 2, 3 or 4 meter end points.  These can be all water, gas, electric meters or any combination. The ideal solution in multi dwelling applications with clustered meters.

Remote Terminal Unit - With Solenoid Valve/Switch control [RTUV]

The RTUV provides a totally secure solution to both monitoring and control of service. In software the valve or switch can control service by time and/or consumption. This enables complete software control from a remote location of:

  • Pre-paid service

  • Disconnects/reconnects and reduced service interventions

Any tampering with the wire connecting the meter [Including magnetic interference] will result in closure of the valve or switch and flag a tampering alert in the software at the control center

RTUV Install Options

Single RTU servicing a water meter and valve end point.  Robust and durable solution typically offering +10 year battery life Single RTU servicing a gas meter and valve with sensor end point.  Robust, safe and durable solution typically offering +10 year battery life Single RTU servicing a smart electric meter end point with an integrated switch.  Robust and durable solution typically offering +10 year battery life

Repeater Unit [RPU]

Repeater units, requiring external power, can be installed to manage the two-way RF communications between as many as 1000 RTU and the BSU.

With 1.5 km NLOS range and +10 km LOS range these units have the ability to inexpensively extend the rage of the fixed LAN deployment

Repeater units can be supplied with integral solar power and rechargeable battery pack for installations without available external power supply.

The Units are designed for easy & simple mounting on wall or pole with the solar panel specifically set to meet the optimal conditions of the specific installation location.

Base Station Unit [BSU]  - Fixed Point Gateway

The BSU manages a LAN of as many as 40 Repeater Units [RPU] and an almost unlimited number of RTU transceivers and provides a fixed point WAN communications gateway with a utilities remotely located administrative, management & control center.

MTR Wireless Communication technological edge rests with the systems Base Station Units [BSUs] ability to manage two-way wireless communications between a Local Area Network [LAN] of thousands of Remote Terminal Units [RTUs] and a Utilities Administrative, management and control, center.

Base Station units can be supplied with integral solar power and rechargeable battery pack for installations without available external power supply.

The Units are designed for easy & simple mounting on wall or pole with the solar panel specifically set to meet the optimal conditions of the specific installation location.
