To speed up this process, Ursalink puts its hand to leverage metering data while minimizing the impact on workflow to help our partners thrive in businesses. By connecting physical assets to the control center over the cellular network in the outdoor working environment, Ursalink works with Promethean Energy together to make the metering system more flexible, scalable, and interoperable.

Project

Ursalink helps the partner to enable device-to-dashboard connectivity and turns its digital insight into a strategy-based initiative in India.

Solution

This solution contains RTU, Power Meter, Ursalink Cellular Remote I/O (UC3252), and AWS IoT. The UC3252 enables communication with power meters and RTU, collecting and transmitting data to the AWS IoT platform (How to Control UC3x with AWS IoT) for analysis over the cellular network. Users can remotely control DOs of Modbus RTU, get better visibility into energy consumption, and send commands to the end devices on the platform via MQTT protocol.

Streamlined Operation

It is usually complicated to connect every brand of end-devices to a Cloud platform. However, with Ursalink UC3252, it will be easier to take control of nodes, address energy challenge and realize power meter reading.

High Performance at Scale

The AWS IoT Platform gives users a secure and flexible framework that will enhance operation efficiency. Users can read data on the platform with Ursalink UC3252, and send commands to end nodes with defined topics and legible message formats.
