Indirect energy metering

Even in “upright or vertical column” condominium systems, heating costs can be allocated on the basis of real consumption, to respect the European directives and national regulations regarding the energy requalification of buildings.

By combining individual thermoregulation (with our thermostatic valves) and metering (with our electronic heat cost allocator) for every radiator, even systems that are old in terms of concept and manufacture can be requalified, bringing them into line with the modern demands for comfort and energy savings.

Overview

Heat cost allocator

The GE700 electronic heat cost allocator produces a reliable estimate of the energy transferred from the radiator to the environment. The detected data are transmitted via radio frequency - in a manner that's reliable and harmless to health - to the measurement devices located outside the apartment. The wide range of accessories means they can assembled on all the most common radiators on the market.

Wireless centralisation

Complete range of electronic wireless M-BUS devices for managing the energy consumption data obtained by the heat cost allocators.

Radio frequency transmission allows the consumption data to be obtained outside the apartment in a safe, reliable, continuous manner that respects the inhabitants' privacy.

Requalification of the radiator with thermostatic valves

Indirect metering works together with the individual thermoregulation performed by the thermostatic valves installed on the radiators. The thermostatic heads (that can be adjusted to suit the user) ensure the precise control of the temperature in each room in a simple, reliable way, guaranteeing optimum comfort and notable energy savings.

Highlight

Anti-tampering seal and disassembly alarm. 6-figure display for direct reading, optic interface for programming/reading, long-life lithium battery (standard 10 years).

Image of antennas and concentrator The heat cost allocators and data management devices can transmit the data in wireless M-BUS mode at 868 MHz (European band ISM - Industrial, Scientific, Medical). The consumption data can be read in two ways: centralised (remote) or "Walk-by", via a mobile terminal supplied to the appropriate personnel.
