Electricity Meter Selector Switch
Customer: SIPA Verteilanlagen AG
The meter selector-switch for washing-machines consists of two components, the control unit installed in the power distributor and the card reader, which is mounted next to the washing facilities. The meter selector-switch is operated by individual key-cards assigned to each tenant.
WZU Contactless System
The controller is installed at the power distributor and provides the switching between meters. When a washing machine is activated by a card reader, the meter is switched to the counter of the correct apartment, charging the account of the respective user.
The card reader is the interface to the user. An intuitive design allows easy operation: simply put the card into the card reader and remove it when the wash cycle is finished.
The keycard cannot be manipulated or copied, preventing use of the system by unauthorised people. It can also be easily blocked and replaced, if lost or stolen.
