Scalability, Flexibility and Openness
ADDAX IMS is a scalable system that can be easily extended in accordance with customer’s requirements. System’s size can range from a separate building to a multi-million city.
ADDAX IMS is a flexible system that can be easily adjusted, both structurally and functionally, to particular application conditions.
ADDAX IMS is an open system, compatible with other systems, for example, billing system, supporting standard protocols and generally accepted data formats.
ADDAX IMS has a 3 level architecture.
Lower Level. This level includes terminal devices that are installed directly at metering points. They can be ADDAX-devices (meters, controllers), or devices produced by other manufacturers, supporting interfaces applied in System (DLMS/COSEM protocols).
Middle Level. The middle level represents data transmission via any from accessible physical environments: GSM (GPRS), Ethernet, PL (MV), PL (LV), RF, wire (several variants).
Upper Level. This level refers to data collection into Processing Center. The Center software includes:
- MS Windows 2000 SP4 / XP SP2 / 2003 Server SP1
- MS SQL Server 2005 Express Edition
- MS Office 2000 / 2003+
- ADDAX (ADDAX IMS) Application Soft
ADDAX IMS is manufactured on the base of ADDAX Technology, developed and owned by ADD GRUP.
ADDAX IMS is a constantly upgraded system. Upgrade is influenced by our customers’ requests, as well as by accumulated experience and high level of ADDAX technology, achieved today.
ADDAX IMS is implemented in a series of countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. Total number of installed metering points is about 800 000.
