Project tour

Log into the system to enter the project navigation interface, and users can have a global overview of the distribution of each project, the number of merchants, the total amount of electricity used, the collection of electricity bills, the total amount of electricity sold and other summary information


User Management

User management mainly completes account opening, cancellation, batch operation of electricity/water meters, account opening/cancellation record query,and others for merchants.

User Account Opening

The system opens an account for a store, not only supports one household with one meter, but also supports the need for one household to have multiple meters, to meet the problem of transferring the amount of the old meter when the new meter is switched after the project is renovated; it supports peak and valley electricity prices, and supports one meter for one meter. Electricity price; the threshold of power overload can be set for the single meter, and the two-level threshold of the single meter amount alarm can also be set.

Batch remote operation

The status of account opening, alarm 1, alarm 2, arrears, loss of connection, and other conditions are displayed in different colors; the types of commands for remotely controlling the meter include: electricity price issuance, setting issuance (issuing alarm amount threshold and overload power Threshold), power protection (mandatory meter closing), recovery prepayment (automatic tripping mode for arrears), switch-off (mandatory power off) and meter reading export (export the current state of all meters to EXCEL files), as shown in the figure below :

Electricity Sales Management

The system provides new electricity sales, charging, retiring, details and classification queries.

Water sales management

The system provides newly added water sales, recharging, retiring, detailed and classified query.

Report Center

This system provides various reports such as electricity sales, water sales, electricity sales, electricity statistics, management and control meters, real-time alarms, historical events, electrical parameters, and others for inquiries, to satisfy users looking for daily/monthly/yearly financial sales of electricity, water, charges,and the lost connection form/communication management machine query report.


System Configuration

3.2.3Document printing

When selling electricity, returning electricity, and opening an account, the system supports the function of printing three-part documents. The default document format is as follows (it can be freely customized after confirmation by the customer):


With the development of the economy and the improvement of people's material living standards, in order to meet people's daily shopping and eating needs, a large number of commercial complexes have emerged in various places. The electricity management of various shops and tenants in the commercial complex needs to be solved urgently. While the electricity consumption of commercial complexes continues to increase and the requirements for power supply quality continue to increase, there are also a large number of arrears in electricity bills, which greatly increases the operational risks of the commercial complex management party. The prepaid energy management system uses bus communication, combined with the on-site multi-user meter (ADF400L) and the platform software system (Acrel-3200) to realize the payment before the electricity is used, which can avoid the problem of the shopping mall’s electricity bill advancement, thereby alleviating The financial pressure of commercial real estate operations has effectively strengthened and improved the operation and management methods.
