Cyan’s integrated solution for AMI deployed by partner for Indian smart meter project

Cyan, the integrated system and software design company that delivers mesh based flexible wireless products for utility metering and lighting control, announced that one of its partners is participating in the recently initiated, high profile smart grid project in Puducherry, India.

The project is being led by the Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL), a government of India enterprise. It involves installing an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) solution in houses throughout Puducherry to support the electricity department’s objective to save power. An AMI solution will enable the department to monitor online energy usage patterns as well as detect tamper events, e.g. energy theft. It is anticipated that consumers of Puducherry will also benefit from real-time accurate billing information to help manage their energy consumption.

Cyan’s metering partner has deployed CyLec enabled meters in Puducherry for evaluation by PGCIL. The installation demonstrates CyLec, Cyan’s integrated solution for AMI and is expected to remain in place for up to six months. Cyan and its partner are working with a third party system integrator to provide a Meter Data Acquisition System (MDAS) platform to manage and present the data collected from the meters.

CyLec is Cyan’s integrated solution for AMI deployments. It is dedicated to electricity metering and is optimised for range, data communications, interoperability and security. CyLec delivers bi-directional wireless communication with the meter, and head end server integration with meter data management systems.

CyLec can be used to collate instantaneous readings, billing data, tamper alerts, and load surveys. Batched and scheduled connect/disconnect messages may also be sent to meters, along with tariff updates.

John Cronin, executive chairman of Cyan commented: “We are delighted that one of our meter manufacturer partners is involved in this project driven by PGCIL. I look forward to providing the market with further updates on this project as it develops.”
