Wireless Electric Meter Reading Based On Zigbee Technology
In this paper, the authors describe about implementation of wireless electric meter network, implementing of network is based on ZigBee technology. Wireless electric meter is used for remote collection of unit count and sending bill on consumer's meter screen. It is evolved from traditional meter reading scheme and power theft from transmission line. Wireless automatic meter reading technology not only saves human resources but improves the accuracy and remote access of a meter. Meter reading is wirelessly transmitted to base station. Consumer node is composed of electric meter, ARM processor, Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) and a ZigBee module operated at 2.4 GHz ISM band.
