|20110285379||METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DETECTING THE PHASE WIRING OF ANY ARBITRARY UNKNOWN PHASE VOLTAGE RELATIVE TO A REFERENCE PHASE VOLTAGE - The technology relates to detecting the wiring phase of an unknown phase voltage relative to a reference phase voltage in an electric power distribution system having a polyphase power line. In order to reliably detect the wiring phase at the remote location relative to a reference wiring phase even if the remote location is at a larger distance from the reference location, at least one relay location is arranged between the reference location and the remote location and connected to the wiring phase of the polyphase power line. A first phase relation is detected between the reference wiring phase voltage at the reference location and the wiring phase voltage at the relay location. A second phase relation is detected between the wiring phase voltage at the relay location and the wiring phase voltage at the remote location. The wiring phase of the remote location relative to the wiring phase at the reference location is detected based on the first phase relation and the second phase relation. The technology is advantageous in that a direct communication channel between the remote location and the reference location for detecting the phase relation is not required.||11-24-2011|
|20080258708||Control Meter with Safety Deactivation - Control meter for controlling the supply of services, in particular the supply of electric energy, having a support base, anchored with which is a main power supply line, and a metering group detachable from the support base and with a measurement apparatus interposed between the main power supply line and a subscriber line. A safety anchorage is provided for preventing fraudulent manipulations at the control meter and comprises mechanical means associated with the metering group and movable into a locking position for engagement with the support base when the metering group is mounted on the support base, and an interrupter for generating an activation signal upon activation by the mechanical means, wherein the mechanical means is arranged to activate the interrupter when the mechanical means is released from the locking position for detaching the metering group from the support base. The invention allows to positively obstruct acts of fraud and thus to provide a control meter which is able to permit the remote-control of the “open/closed” state in situations of fraud or rather attempted fraud and is capable of unequivocally proving the occurrence of fraud or attempted fraud.||10-23-2008|
