Elvaco measures Panncentralen in Gothenburg
Panncentralen in Gothenburg was initially an oil-fired central. Over the years, it has gone from using waste heat from nearby industries to district heating from the local energy supplier.
When the agreement expired, the central was converted into Sweden's largest geothermal heat pump for homes that currently supplies 2200 apartments with geothermal energy. The peak power of the plant including district heating load is approximately 6MW of which 3.2 MW is supplied by the heat pump.
When the central was rebuilt to deliver heat from geothermal energy, the need for a safe collection system also increased. The choice fell on Elvaco products and software thanks to their high security and good references and previous experiences.
The products currently used are CMe3100, CMe2100, and the software Metering.
Panncentralen Frölundaborg Economic Association is a unique partnership between private property owners, public housing and housing societies at HSB and Riksbyggen. Riksbyggen Economic Association manages the operation of the plant.
Our latest product
We want to offer our customers a wider range of use for our CMe3100 (Gateway for Fixed Network), and have therefore developed an LTE/4G router that allows the CMe3100 to be used with no connection to the Internet. The router provides you with access to the product's built-in web interface and measurement reports via the 4G network.
Our bestseller CMe2100 gets a new look
We have since 2009 delivered our popular Gateway for mobile network, CMe2100. Just in time for the launch of the third generation product, we have given it a new fresh look. The changes concern the enclosure and labels, but do not affect the size or fit. The functionality and performance are the same as the previous generation, but the M-Bus connection is changed to a screw terminal to better handle different cable types.
It is simply the same popular product, but in new clothes!
Continued trust from Borås Energy and Environment
Borås Energy and Environment has been a customer of ours for many years. Since they are going to replace about 2500 meters from an old radio system to hourly readings via GPRS, procurement was made through VÄRMEK. The choice fell on a point-to-point solution with heat meters from TLS and integrated communication modules from Elvaco. The products used are the UH50 meter from Landis+Gyr delivered via TLS, and our integrated Gateway for mobile network, CMi2110. Choosing a communication module that is integrated in the meter provides a cost effective solution where customers receive a direct connected product and don't need to do any additional wiring.
New improved software version
We are constantly working on developing our products. By listening to our customers' wishes, we have made major improvements in our M-Bus Metering Gateway CMe3100 over the past year. In addition to more than 100 minor improvements, the product has received a number of larger exciting additions.
News for the product:
- A continuous reading mode, which allows controlling of systems based on real-time data.
- Monitoring of meter readings and Push Reports using SNMP.
- Support for DLMS.
- Automatic synchronization between meter readings and Push Reports.
- A more user-friendly web interface.
All extensions are available from software version 1.7.0. The latest version can always be downloaded from Elvaco's website.
Measuring in Mall Of Scandinavia
Jowa Elektriska AB installs measurement equipment at Mall Of Scandinavia in Arenastaden, Sweden. Mall Of Scandinavia has a retail space of approximately 100,000 m2 and a mall of about 20,000m2.
Mall Of Scandinavia was opened on November 12, 2015. The building is owned by Unibail-Rodamco and is the first shopping center in Sweden to be certified according to BREEM, rated "Excellent" during the design phase.
To measure electricity in the large building, Jowa chose to use gateways from Elvaco. Currently, the products CMe3100 and CMe3000 are used to easily utilize the building's IP real estate network without having to place a signal cable between the measurement points. The electricity meters are also supplied by Elvaco and are manufactured by ABB.
One of the characteristics of the mall is a top 50 LED display that measures about 38 meters in width and 14 meters in height, or about 530 square meters.
New certificates for several of our products
In recent months, we have let Intertek evaluate and register most of our products. Thanks to this, various types of certificates, such as SASO certificate for export to Saudi Arabia, can be issued quickly and smoothly if necessary.
