Smart Utilities


Utilities were among the earliest 物联网 (IoT) adopters, 智能电表处于这一增长的前沿, helping utility providers optimize energy distribution and giving customers actionable insights to improve energy efficiency. 

而电表已经存在多年了, 传感器使它们成为“智能”仪表, 实现更好的仪表管理和数据捕获, 分析并传输到云端. 流行的用例包括:

  • 自动计量
  • 电能计量
  • Gas metering
  • 油舱液位监测
  • 变压器监控
  • 公用事业计量、监控和管理
  • Water metering
  • 水流和泄漏监测
