Global Power Product's RM-100 Solid-State Residential Energy Meter is a low-cost, all-electronic and versatile open system
Global Power Product's RM-100 Solid-State Residential Energy Meter is a low-cost, all-electronic and versatile open system. The unique design of the RM-100 supports an infinite choice of Automated Meter Reading (AMR) technologies that are beginning to emerge. The RM-100 open-platform meter with a LCD kilowatthour register offers a full spectrum of AMR choices.
Why deal with proprietary protocols?
The data communications from RM-100 to plug-in modules utilizes the ANSI C12.18 communications protocol and the information and format specified in the ANSI standard C12.19 data tables.
Form 2S, 240V, 60Hz, Single Phase, 3-Wire, 5 Amp through 5000 Amp
Low cost, AMR-ready meter with LCD-readout for energy display
Modular design, open architecture
Data can be processed and stored at the meter or can be processed by the communications electronics that gives you more choice
Supports real-time metering, Time-of-Use (TOU), load profiling, load management, power quality monitoring
Compatible with Power-Line-Carrier, CEBus, LonWorks, RF two-way, cellular, satellite, two-way paging, telephone and cable modems
Both 240VAC and 12VDC provided to communications module

The RM-100 will accept a variety of communication modules that allow utilities and property management to stay with the type of communications technology that they currently have in place. Groups that are undecided as to the communications technology they plan to use can install the RM-100 first as a basic LCD readout energy meter and deal with the communications issue later. Many communications companies are ready now to talk with utilities about their technology for the RM-100
