First PRIME Gateway Certified

Regesta Compact PLC is the ultimate gateway for PRIME based smart metering communications. This gateway is designed to behave as a base-node connecting to the different smart meters in the PLC network and obtaining the information using PRIME technology and using cellular or Ethernet technologies to send it to a centralized concentrator installed at the central services. 

Regesta Compact PLC allows a safer deployment (as no data is stored in unattended remote locations), reduces costs (less devices to be installed on the field) and increases scalability (prepared for easy updates on the concentration software to allow optimization and evolution of metering data processing).

Teldat has recently joined the PRIME Alliance and is the first member to attain a certified gateway

New certifications have been granted to:

ZIV Metering Solutions, for three (3) new three-phase meters, 5CTDE2FO Mod.0E490VE; 5CTDE1F Mod.069494UEI & 5CTDE2F6; and 5CTDE1F Mod.069494UEI.

Teldat SA, for their gateway, TLDPH00F1 (Regesta PLC).
