New Bedford Harbor job update: alternative to smart meters, We had difficulties reaching the transmitters because of the layout of the marina wich is more like a parking lot where many truck come and go. Installing external directional antennas in the pedestals and raising the main antennas, the communication improved notoriously.
The OscaMax installed in the pedestal permit reading the Eaton electrical meters and sending the data on request via wireless to the main computer. Oscarmax also allows witching the receptacles power ON and OFF remotely. We have 8 receptacles per pedestal on this marina and each OscarMax controls 4 meters and 4 receptacles.
