Energy meters are a long-term investment. Telecommunication solutions have a much shorter life span, so flexibility is key: this is why communication modules from Landis+Gyr are specifically designed to be easily retrofitted. With this, they are offering the most cost-effective data transfer technology which allows energy companies to significantly improve their operational efficiency.
Broadest portfolio in the market
Landis+Gyr provides the broadest selection of communication units to fit the utility network architecture, size and the existing communication infrastructure. Our modules do not just establish connection to a fixed installation (RS-232, RS-485, Ethernet), they support the remote transfer via LTE, UMTS or GPRS. Compliance with open communication protocols like IEC-62056-21 or DLMS ensures flexibility and future-proof communication media choices.
The interchangeability of the modules within various meter families through Plug&Play installation keeps field installation costs down. Also, the communication units can be retrofitted by using an external adapter.
Enhanced installation options
A flexible building block concept allows the combination of various communication units, meters and accessories to best fit into the respective meter park architecture. Multi-drop, various adapter options or multi-master applications keep operational expenses under control. A meter room application via Ethernet Network Bridging is also possible. Features
- Read-out, reset, synchronization and re-parametrization of the meter by remote access
- Plug&Play installation in meter housing or external connection via adapter
- Multi-master operation (up to 32 meters, several central stations)
- TCP/IP Connection
- DLMS or IEC-62056-21
Available interfaces with diverse combinations of:
- LTE 4G
- UMTS 3G
- GPRS 2G
- CS Interface (active and passive)
- RS-232 Interface
- RS-485 Interface
- Europe, the Middle East and Africa
