Smart metering data collection

Bento Smart Metering provides a wide range of useful tools and solutions to ultimately enable a world of smarter energy!

Having more accurate knowledge about energy consumption may determine initiating actions to reduce such consumption.

Bento Smart Metering correlates energy consumption with financial figures, allowing you to see how much electricity is actually costing you.

Electricity, gas, heat, and water companies are gradually adopting smart metering solutions as an efficient method of tracking consumption in their networks in order to better determine infrastructure costs and needs.

FUNCTIONALITIES

  • Interfacing with ERP or HES systems (SAP, Oracle)
  • Integration with smart meters that can communicate through standard protocols (Modbus, DLMS, etc.)
  • Providing index reading, directly to distribution system operators
  • Real-time reading of the load curve
  • Remote meter reading without the need for on-site specialised teams

  • Manual/ automatic detection of defective meters to reduce losses*
  • Manual/ automatic meter disconnections*
  • Secure data communication
  • Fraud prevention & manual/ automatic fraud detection
  • Manual/ automatic change of subscriptions and remote meter calibration
  • Automatic report generation (concerning consumption, failures, performance)
