The Terbium System is an advanced real-time,
interactive telemetry system which enhances
the existing mechanical electricity metering
with reading and recording capabilities of an
electronic Time of Use (TOU) meter. The system
can communicate over long distances via encrypted
Power Line Carrier (PLC) and appropriate telecommunication
network to interface to a main computer system.
Power consumption data from factories, buildings,
residential homes, etc, can be gatered and recorded
at the central processing facility at a lower
cost compared to other systems.
The AMR TERBUIM totally integrated system
has been developed in-house by our principal
AMR Asia Co. Ltd in Thailand. This technology
has won, amongst stiff competition the rights
to a ten (10) year concession by the Metropolitan
Electricity Authority (MEA) of Bangkok, Thailand
to operate and outsource its automatic meter
AMR TERBIUM SYSTEM is one of the most advanced
real-time systems that eliminates the need for
on-site management of consumer readings or power
disconnection or connection by any Utility personnel.
Provides a host of additional functions and
information that enable Utility planning, monitoring,
management and control from one access point.
The TERBIUM SYSTEM is extremely cost effective,
taking advantage of the existing Utility infrastructure.
The system uses standard watt-hour meters to
be retrofitted so that existing mechanical or
pulse electronic meters do not require replacement.
It also utilizes the existing utility power
line for real time data communication called
Power line Communication between Terbium-RU
(Remote Unit) at consumer sites and a local
data gathering, processing and control unit
called Terbium-CU (Concentrator).
All information is delivered to Terbium-MC
(Master Control Center) for monitoring, management,
analyzing, investigation or transferring to
other systems such as billing system or database
management system or extra operation & maintenance
system. Utility is able to set criteria, rules
or policies for each situation and after automatic
analyzing; the system will be handled with proper
manners by intelligent system management.
TERBIUM SYSTEM has been designed in a single
isolated unit solid-state type with industrial
grade quality for outdoor mounting which do
not require any additional protection such as
cabinets, boxed rain sheds or sun shielding.
It is completely suitable for use in tropical
climatic areas and has proved its ability to
operate successfully in the stiff service conditions,
high humidity, severe surge & harsh lighting
as in found throughout South East Asia.
TERBIUM SYSTEM provides 3 alternatives for
each specific requirement of Automatic Meter
- Model 1.0 KWh (Energy) Feature
- Model 2.0 TOU (Time of Used) Feature
- Model 3.0 Load Profile Feature
All of these systems guarantee the accuracy
of the readings and enables the data to be sent
over longer distances via the power lines with
complete concern of security.
