The Energy Communications Management eXchange® (ECMX®)
C12.22 Mobile demonstration software by the Energy Communications Management eXchange®.
C1222NodeMobile Version: 1.4.1623
This is a software package (.apk) that implements a small footprint, first of its kind, ANSI C12.22 / IEEE Std 1703 Android mobile Node. The application will run on any Android O/S version 4.x, 5.x or 6.x Phone or Tablet device that has 1GB or more RAM, 1GHz or faster processor, integrated GPS, and some persistent storage.
The mobile application installs an ANSI C12.22 / IEEE Std 1703 communication a service and a C12.22 Node that acts both as a server and a client. The mobile C12.22 Node can attach to any C12.22 Network, via the Internet (e.g. WIFI) or any mobile data carrier (e.g. 4G, LTE etc.). Once installed, authenticated and connected, the C12.22 Mobile Node can monitor network operations (per C12.22 Domain Pattern) and read Smart Meters identification and energy registers anywhere worldwide on the Global C12.22 Network (ECMX provides the root master relay).
Given that this demo application is available only from the ECMX website (will be released on Google Play shortly), it is necessary for the Android End Device to be able to install it (the .apk file) from local storage or from the download location. You will need to download and save the application (.apk file) on the SD media of the Android device, then click on it to install. You must ensure that the Android device has the option “Settings->Security->Unknown Sources” turned on (see Settings->Security->Unknown Sources). Enabling this feature will let the Android device install the C12.22 Node even though it did not come from Google Play.
Once installed start the application, then select “Settings->Account ID Verification” and
Enter your user name
Enter your password
Verify (or Sign-up for a free ECMX username and password)
then select “Settings->End Device UI configuration” and
Enter your preferences
Check all the check-boxes
Goto “Settings->End Device Identification (ST06)” (ANSI C12.19 Your End Device Table 06, “Utility Information Table”)
Fill in the Utility fields as you see fit.
MUST FILL DEVICE_ID with some string, e.g. “DTE MOBILE 1” to help us “see you”...
Click on “Get my location” (uses the GPS to locate the location of the Android). This will fill in ANSI C12.19 GPS coordinates into Table 6, per standard.
If you click on the “track my location” then “SAVE” the active location of the End Device will be updated (in real time)in Standard Table 6. This implies that other devices (including your own) can then track your location and show on Google Maps (via “View End Device location on map” when they read Table 6.
If you do not click on the “track my location” then the last SAVEd location will be reported.
Finally, Select “Associate” to associate (register) the device with the C12.22 AMI Network. The network status icon will appear and you are ready to go... Do a “Read All” to get Table 6 from all registered devices on the network, etc...
