Real-time measurement and reporting of power consumption

The External Meter Interface serves as a Zigbee interface for your customer’s electronic meter at home. The External Meter Interface will collect readings and information from other meters, and send data via the Zigbee communication to appliances in the building. Your customer will then be able to follow their energy consumption through a display on the External Meter Interface, or through their computer or mobile phone.

Key features:

  • LED/IR sensor
  • P1, S0 or Pulse interfaces available on request (MOQ 5000)
  • Zigbee Home Automation 1.2 compliant

Interface for different types of meters

The External Meter Interface works with different types of meters, such as power, water, gas or heating.

All data can be collected by an external gateway and stored in a normal data flash. The Zigbee profile ensures high security in order to protect personal data and prevent hacking.

The optical probe is easily attached either by magnets or by velcro. Cable length is approximately 800 mm.
