Infrastructure

Elvaco's Infrastructure segment is made up of products that enable collection, processing and delivery of meter data. Our M-Bus Gateways are used to read meters and deliver meter data in a suitable format to a receiving system. M-Bus Masters extends the number of meters a Gateway is able to use and Wireless M-Bus Receivers enables the Gateway to communicate with Wireless M-Bus meters. Elvaco also offers turn-key solutions, which are assembled, connected and ready to start using at delivery. 

CGc IP Box - Elvaco box-build for Fixed Network

Elvaco's CGc IP Box is made up of our M-Bus Metering Gateway CMe3100 and an M-Bus Master from the CMeX10-13S Series, fully assembled and connected in a protective enclosure at delivery. This turn-key solution is used to read up to 256 M-Bus meters, compile meter data in customized reports and deliver it to a receiving system by a set time schedule and integration protocol via the fixed network. By using the CGc IP Box together with our LTE-router in A-Box, meter data can also be transmitted over the mobile network. Our CMeX50 Wireless M-Bus Receiver, which enables communication with up to 256 Wireless M-Bus meters, is available as an add-on option.
