The System for security control of meters using electronic RFID seals (VSS ORD RFID Seal®)is used as highly effective System for protection of meters with Electronic RFID Distribution Seals.
Existing seals on electricity meters perform physical protection trough lead or plastic seals. Their main disadvantage is that they can be easily falsified or cloned. There are also techniques that they can be opened and closed without visible damage, which is widely published on YouTube. Once laid it is impossible to check their accuracy without visual contact, due to the inability to approach the meter (e.g. locked cabinets) and often a good will of worker who controls them, so seals’ irregularity can be properly recorded.
VSS ORD RFID Seal® is used for physical protection of measuring devices on the field and present the cheapest and safest protection System for meters, cabinets with meters and another energy infrastructure. VSS ORD RFID Seal® operate on the principle of passive RFID tags set on a three-tier label, which is non-resistant to any movement and lift-off, since at that time the mentioned passive RFID tag is being destroyed and as such provides a signal to RFID readers that an intervention has been done on measuring device. VSS Electronic RFID Seal is set up by gluing it to box composition with power cables on meter.
To be able to read VSS ORD RFID Seal® you must put VSS RFID Reader on smart phone through sound jack port. Reading range of VSS RFID Reader is up to 1 meter, so when reading and controlling meters with VSS ORD APP® System can check accuracy of distribution seals on meters to which physically cannot be accessed, e.g. if there are such in locked Meter Distribution Cabinets. Any removal or displacement of box with power cables on meter, breaks the label from VSS ORD RFID Seal® and destroys passive RFID tag which during reading with VSS RFID Reader reports whether someone has intervened on meter and that the same must be inspected (calibrated etc.) and protected again.
Main advantages of VSS ORD RFID Seal® are as follows:
