Abstract

A utility meter 1, especially an electricity meter, includes an auxiliary module 4, that communicates information from the meter over a network such as a WAN or LAN. The auxiliary module couples to the meter housing via electrically safe connections 3, 6 and communicates via ports 2, 5. The auxiliary module may communicate wirelessly via e.g. GSM or GPRS, or may communicate with a wired network via power line carrier PLC. The auxiliary module may have an additional function such as a card reader, USB port, smoke detector, or carbon monoxide detector. The auxiliary module is interchangeable with other modules. The auxiliary module may also receive data from other utility meters.

Description

Description

Configurable Smart Meter Module This invention relates to a design of a commodity meter that enables removable auxiliary devices to be safely powered and conveniently located within the enclosure of the commodity meter in a manner that enables electrically isolated communication between the two separate devices.

Commodity meters are often required to communicate with and provide power to removable auxiliary devices. In the case of an electrical commodity meter this often means that the auxiliary device would become electrically energised and would be unsafe to handle.

Commodity meters are often required to provide one or more auxiliary functions for example a commodity meter could include any one of the following, an auxiliary relay, a communication device, a visual display unit, a keyboard, a smart card reader, a swipe card reader, a key token reader, a point of sale device, an optical port, a USB port, a video interface port, a speaker, a smoke detector, a carbon monoxide detector and a plurality of other devices all of which are peripheral to the primary function of commodity measurement.

The commodity meter is normally used for fiscal purposes and is required to be certified by an approved body as a result of this the commodity meter and the auxiliary devices are normally assembled in a particular functional configuration within a single sealed enclosure. Changing the functional configuration is often not possible without breaking the seals of the commodity meter enclosure. A commodity meter with broken enclosure seals cannot be used for fiscal measurement purposes. This makes changing the auxiliary function once the commodity meter is in service difficult to achieve without changing the complete commodity meter.

To overcome these problems the present invention proposes a method of providing communications from an item of electronic equipment used in measuring a flowing commodity including electricity, to a plurality of removable auxiliary electronic components that may have a variety of uses including but not limited to telecommunications; comprising the steps of providing a communication port in the item of electronic equipment, said port having a connector disposed therein that provides an electrically safe interface; providing a second port; said port having a power connector that provides an electrical power supply. The said first port provides an electrically safe communication coupling to the removable auxiliary electronic component and the said second port provides an electrical coupling to an external power source via the said power connector to the removable auxiliary electronic component. The removable auxiliary electronic component being characterized by having a port with a connector that provides an electrically safe interface to the means of measuring the flowing commodity and a second port that provides a connection to the power connector of the means of measuring the flowing commodity the said ports of the removable auxiliary electronic component provide an electrically safe communication coupling to the item of electronic equipment used in measuring a flowing commodity and an electrically safe coupling to an external power source via the said power connector of the item of electronic equipment used in measuring a flowing commodity. The item of electronic equipment used in measuring a flowing commodity including electricity being contained within a primary sealed enclosure that contains all the legally relevant measurement functionality. The removable auxiliary electronic component forming part of the secondary enclosure of the item of electronic equipment used for measuring a flowing commodity.

The invention will now be described solely by way of example and by reference to the following figures.

Figure 1 which shows an item_of electronic equipment comprising: a means for measuring a flowing commodity including electricity contained within a primary sealed enclosure 1 said means for measuring a flowing commodity including a port 2; said port further including an electrically safe communication coupling said means for measuring a flowing commodity including a second port 3; said second port further including a means of providing electrical power.

Figure 2 which shows an example of a plurality of items of removable auxiliary electronic equipment 4 each being characterized by having a port with a connector that provides an electrically safe communication coupling 5 to the means of measuring the flowing commodity and a second port that provides an electrically safe connection to the power connector 6 of the means of measuring the flowing commodity.

Figure 3 which shows an example of the plurality of items of removable auxiliary electronic equipment 4 with an electrically safe communication coupling 5, 2 to the item of electronic equipment used in measuring a flowing commodity 1 and an electrically safe coupling an external power source via the said power connector 6, 3 of the item of electronic equipment used in measuring a flowing commodity 1 Figure 4 which shows an example of the plurality of items of removable auxiliary electronic equipment 4 forming part of the secondary sealed enclosure of the item of electronic equipment used for measuring a flowing commodity 1.
