ecoreal ZP counter space app
Configurate meter cabinet systems individually
About the project
The company ABN is based in Neuenstadt near Heilbronn and specializes in meter cabinet and distribution technology.
Development of a configurator that enables the planning and design of meter-station systems for both customers and internal sales staff of ABN.
The meter cabinet app is used on mobile devices like iOS and Google Android, as well as a browser-based version.
The cross-platform development strategy enables widespread use with only one programming code.
LOCATION AND NETWORK OPERATOR:
At the beginning, the location of the construction project is the most important input to determine the responsible grid operator. In Germany, there are over 1,000 network operators who have defined their own regional technical specifications for metering station technology.
Once the network operator has been determined, all suitable products are determined in the background of the app. The user can select fields suitable for the technical conditions of his responsible network operator.
This saves a lot of time when planning and with just a few clicks, a standard-compliant meter cabinet system of the respective location can be configured.
The user selects the desired number of various meter locations and distribution fields. The meter cabinet app calculates the contents of the cabinet taking into account technical characteristics such as busbar, APZ, distribution field. The order of units in an enclosure is an important part of planning.
The meter units are distributed to the required number of housings.
As a result, all housings with cabinet contents appear as a clearly arranged, self-explanatory design drawing. All items are listed per cabinet.
The necessary and complementary accessories are proposed to the user for selection and can also be changed individually.
PIECES LIST WITH ELBRIDGE INTERFACE:
After just 5 steps, the user receives a complete bill of materials for his meter cabinet installation. The parts list can be exported as an Excel file for further use.
Another special feature of the meter cabinet app is the integration of the standardized ELBRIDGE interface, which makes it possible to transfer all articles directly to the webshop of a wholesaler. ELBRIDGE was developed by ETIM Germany and is considered the industry standard for data communication between manufacturers ‘configurators and wholesalers’ webshops.
