Further M-Bus components
We are using modular building blocks for creating different devices for DIN rail mounting with footprint of 2 or 3 modules width.
There are diverse custom-specific components. One device we are offering as a standard device is the MBUS-REP. It is a repeater for the M-Bus and reconditions the signal like typical repeaters are doing. As a result, larger networks and longer distances can be used and a higher number of meters can be connected to the M-Bus. It combines a slave interface to the logical bus master on the one site and an own master interface to the slave or meters on the other side. The data is transparently transmitted in both directions. As a repeater powers its subnet, the physical load of the logical master is clearly reduced.
Occasionally, appliances need to be switched close to the readout infrastructure, or a feed-in management needs to be implemented with an inverter for a photovoltaic system. Why not use the M-Bus here? Our MBUS-RELA4 offers 4 galvanically isolated relay outputs.
An alternative use case is in operating valves to activate hygienic flushing at distant places of water consumption as imposed by the drinking water ordinance.
