Fully compliant with the ANSI C12.19 and C12.22 standards for storage and transport of register data over a network the OpenWay CENTRON provides a secure and reliable open-standards approach to data collection and communications between the meter and network. In addition, each OpenWay CENTRON meter comes factory-equipped with a ZigBee® radio chip
to provide a built-in communications pathway into the home for data presentation, load control and demand response. ZigBee also provides a communication channel with 2.4GZ OpenWay Gas Modules.
The OpenWay CENTRON also provides robust data storage capability to support a variety of data-intensive applications, as well as the most advanced feature set available to support smart grid initiatives. By providing full two-way communications on either RF or LTE cellular, an optional load-limiting remote service switch, outage and tamper detection, and remote upgrade capabilities through the network, the OpenWay CENTRON meter is truly a smart meter that provides a foundation for smart grid initiatives.
