Read Only Meters
Read only meters are a cost effective addition to Marina Pedestals. They monitor the units of electric consumed by a socket. By taking the end reading from the start reading you can calculate the amount of electric used.
Smart Card Metering
RMCS offer a Smart Card metering solution for electricity. The user is issued with an intelligent smart card which is charged with credit via an electronic read/write head in the office. The card is then inserted into the meter where credit is removed and taken back to the office and any available credit refunded. This type of metering has the ability to service one electrical socket and one water tap with the capability of four meters per pedestal.
Standalone PLC Metering
RMCS has developed its own range of standalone metering for use in any location. Each pedestal is equipped with its own PLC. From this PLC we can control up to 8 services of water and electricity. Water can either be set as a litre or gallon option and electricity can either be set as kwh or a time option. Payment methods can be coin, token or contactless card technology.
Remote Switching and Metering
Using industry proven technology and hardware RMCS uses an IP addressable PLC in each pedestal. This will switch and meter up to 8 services per pedestal. The system is then linked together via a simple 2 core cable either hardwired back to the office up to 1.5km or via a access point and Ethernet.
A simple office based front end allows control and meter reading of each individual pitch for water and electricity. This reporting can either be daily, weekly, monthly or yearly.
