Solutions for reading of instantaneous values

Reading instantaneous values allows the monitoring of media. Therefore, consumption meters have to be read more often, and further values are interesting beyond the counter value. There is additional information like instantaneous power, flow rate or flow temperature, which is important. 

For this reason, all data have to be provided in a processable form . Consequently, a conversion of M-Bus or wM-Bus into another data format like Modbus TCP or BACnet/IPV is useful. 

Our gateways are the right choice for these applications. Alternatively, also the data loggers can supply instantaneous value or, connected to a SPS or a PC, simple level converters are used.

M-Bus gateways


In the field of automation, control systems are usually collecting the data. But regarding meter data, they typically cannot deal with the M-Bus. Without the possibility of direct interfacing, gateways are used. Gateways are reading and processing data via M-Bus on their own and they are translating the data for the control systems. Other benefits are the compact design as well as an intuitive and easy to operate web interface. It is like Plug and Play, saving time and saving effort.

The gateways are translating M-Bus data to quite common communication standards in industrial automation like Modbus or in building automation like BACnet.

Data concentrators for Smart Metering


Automated data acquisition is the starting point for Smart Metering.

Based on our successful model MUC.easy, we have developed a new generation of hardware and software. The result is the MUC500 family, the MBUS-GSLE125 and our brand-new data concentrator MUC.easyplus.

A new feature is a so-called system meter, which offers monitoring or logging system states in addition to the other meter values. For a better fault analysis, the time of the last readout is visualised, and the export interface has been extended by a scripting system. This allows the customer to use a versatile tool to individualize the data export even more and to make it more flexible.

The product series MUC.easyplus is a family of data concentrators for Smart Metering. They are offering a quick and easy commissioning even without expert knowledge regarding the operation and the characteristics of M-Bus communication. The MUC.easy comes with an integrated and easy to use configuration web page. Only a few settings might be changed before starting the scan procedure for finding the meters. After that, the read-out procedure and the data processing is completely automated.

The devices are collecting the data on their own, no matter which type of meter and which type of medium is involved. The stored data then gets standardized by the MUC.easyplus and is provided to other systems. It is like Plug and Play, saving time and saving effort.

Most of our data concentrators have an integrated M-Bus interface according to EN 13757. On top of that, they come with three S0 pulse inputs and a serial interface (RS-485). This enables the user to read out further meters directly or by using an optical probe.

For wireless communication with meters, there is an wM-Bus interface according to the OMS standard (Open Metering Systems).

One major part of the MUC.easyplus is the integrated and very powerful communication software. It is responsible for all the data processing and meter recognition. Its universal operation follows the EN 13757 without basing on meter libraries. This omits the time-consuming maintenance of such libraries. In the same breath, it allows to read-out all the meters in the market, independent which manufacturer and which medium it is. All the values, units and also the metadata is recognized and represented on the device. In addition there is an extra data field “User label” for entering unique identifiers relating to your data collection system. These systems can be connected via Ethernet and in some variants also via mobile communication. It is your choice.

The products of the family MUC500 are specialized data concentrators. They are focused on only one physical interface and are addressing huge meter installations. The performance of the physical layer and the CPU is respectively high.

Handling is the same like above. An integrated web server offers a smart configuration web page. Meters are allocated by simply scanning the M-Bus.

Regarding wired M-Bus communication the MUC500 M offers up to 500 unit loads on the bus lines. For the wireless M-Bus there are up to two receivers integrated in the MUC500 W. This enables the parallel usage of different modes like S, T and C on the same frequency or even different frequencies with the same device. Besides the common 868 MHz there are also solutions for 433 MHz and 169 MHz.

In addition, the MUC500 W comes with an integrated RS-232 interface. So, an external level converter can be used for reading out wired and wireless infrastructures at once.

All devices of the next generation solve the challenges in huge installations and are able to handle more than 5000 meters logically.

It is an unique combination of an M-Bus master and an M-Bus slave. The field of application are existing M-Bus installations. The MBUS-GSLE can be installed between existing master and the connected meters. From now on, it will read the meters instead of the former master. All the features from the MUC.easy are available and will help shorten the readout cycle or gathering any additional data. The M-Bus slave interface is used for representing the meter data also to the former master. The MBUS-GSLE is available for 125, 250 and 500 unit loads. Optionally, it is also available with Modbus or BACnet extension.

M-Bus level converters


Our M-Bus master level converters are directly attached to a control system or any other kind of host system. In combination with a software module for the M-Bus master, this is the easiest way to get the communication running.

These devices can be installed and configured impressively easy: The host system is the only thing that needs to be configured. All the settings are automatically recognized by the level converters. Integrated status LEDs show the operational state.

All the devices of the serie PS are interfacing the M-Bus to a RS-232 port at the host system. 

There are further level converters. For remote applications, the MBUS-GE20V / GE80V are the best choice. After configuring the network and the serial port settings they are ready for connecting the M-Bus directly to a TCP/IP socket. 

For mobile applications as well as for field service the best option will be the MBUS-PU3. It is a compact level converter for host systems with an USB interface and an installed software specialized for the M-Bus communication.
